The Power of Faith

No I am not going down the God route, although that can be a GREAT one. 🙂 I am taking about Faith in your Dreams. Faith in yourself. Faith the universe is set up for you to WIN. That your conscious and subconscious FAITH (belief), will help you get to your destiny. Now some folks believe in Destiny, and others we can make our destiny. I kind of think it is a combination of both, we “influence” our destiny. A few decisions one way or the other, and we live or dreams or our nightmares. There is a great statement in the bible, [Read More Now...]

The 80/20 Rule

Most people, not all, but most, do busy work, not productive work. The focus on the 80 percent that is easy, not the 20 percent that is hard. Or the 20 percent that is going to make a difference in your life. Let me give you a typical to do list for some folks: Shower/Shave, and get ready. Drive to work. Listen to radio. Work 8/10 hours. Do what is urgent, not important. Boss calls, meeting, reports, answering the phone. Grab food. Cook, and clean. Maybe run kids to after school actives. Perhaps, some laundry, yard work, or house cleaning [Read More Now...]

200 50 Day Moving Average

The major technical indicator in the Market is the 200 and 50 day moving average. If the stock or index is going up (prices), and it crosses, generally that is considered negative (the death cross). The death of the stock or index. If the after a down trend, which we had in Feb and Mar, it cross toward the bottom, and or on the way up, it is considered the holly cross.

Pumpers and Dumpers

20 Tips to get a BETTER deal!

1. Everything is negotiable Keep an open mind about what is negotiable. You may believe retail prices in stores are the bottom line, but they are not!

Negotiate when your opponent is happy or content. They’ll be less likely to give you opposition and say no than when they are unhappy or feeling discontent.

Football Lessons

In high school and university (college) I played football. It was always a challenge to play, to make the team and to start.

Refi your mortgage?

Wow. Historic low interest rates. That is a great time, to consider, a refi of your mortgage. Or even some investments.

For myself and some of my trading friends, we have been anticipating a pull back and crash for a while. Many of us, having protective puts, or plans if the market goes to the dark side.
