Ron Paul: Fed's autonomy is coming to an end Submitted by cpowell on 01:27PM ET Monday, August 31, 2009. Section: Daily Dispatches The Fed's Interesting Week By U.S. Rep. Ron Paul Monday, August 31, 2009,tx14_paul,blog,999,All,Item%20n... It has been an interesting week indeed for the Federal Reserve. First it was announced that President Obama intends to reappoint Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to a second term in January, signaling a vote of confidence in him. Bernanke seems to be popular with the administration and with Wall Street, and with good reason. His lending policies have left big banks flush with newly created cash that covers up old mistakes and allows for new ones. By buying up mountains of Treasury debt he has also enabled spending to soar to ridiculous levels that should startle any responsible economist, and scare any American concerned about the value of the dollar. However, these highly sensitive decisions a

Market Watch: Whatever September holds, it's just one month

Monday's Personal Finance stories By MarketWatch Don't miss these top stories: Debit cards for teens Rethink your 529 plan Easing mutual-fund tax bite The market has come a long way off its March 9 lows and nowhere is that more true than in the small-cap arena, which has seen a 70% gain in just under six months. That raises the question for many investors about just how much higher the market can go, if at all, before a major correctionsets in. You might be inclined to back off equities for a time, especially cutting your allocation to small-cap stocks, if you are heeding the warnings. The problem for many investors is that they have missed a lot of the bull run since for most of the year they have been busy shifting assets away from stocks and into bonds, spooked by the collapse that occurred after August 2008. Such behavior is not uncommon among Main Street investors, who tend to sell long past peaks and buy back in well after rallies are underway.
Personal Finance Daily AUGUST 29, 2009 The week's top Personal Finance stories By MarketWatch In case you missed them, here are the top 10 Personal Finance stories from MarketWatch for the week of Aug. 24-28: How a CHAT can forge health-reform consensus What is health care, and how much of it should be covered by communal dollars in a private or public health plan? Contrary to the shouting matches that broke out in some town-hall meetings earlier this month, Americans tend to be circumspect when considering what health insurance should cover in a basic plan, especially when they're engaged in a meaningful discussion of the trade-offs, health-policy experts say. See Vital Signs. Contribution limits for 401(k)s and other plans may decrease next year It's starting to seem like retirees and those saving for retirement can't catch a break. First comes news that there won't be any cost-of-living increase for Social Security beneficiaries i

Real World Investing 101 – Lecture #1 August 27, 2009 Inaugural Lecture by Dr. Michael Berry (Author of Morning Notes) Dear Friends: After many brain storming discussion sessions with my friend Dr. Michael Berry we came to the realization that ‘real world’ investing at universities, colleges and high-schools was not being taught. There is a real need for timely courses in ‘Real World Investing 101’ to assist students, when they enter the workforce and start investing their hard earned money. After all maintaining wealth and wealth creation especially, ‘in these troubling times’ is a daunting proposition, to say the least. Dr. Berry and Mining Interactive have set out to remedy this and try and fill the vacuum with this inaugural lecture to be followed by future lectures in our series of Real World Investing 101. We established Mining Interactive University (MIU) and will present ongoing lectures by free-thinking individuals who have clarity of

Imagine not having access to any financial news: By Adam Hewison

FGC BOLSA - FGC FINANCIAL MARKETS Imagine not having access to any financial news stories. The only information you have about the market is the market itself.

From the Desk of Nick Nicolaas (FDNN) #75 August 25, 2009 GOLDVIEW a publication of E U R O P E A N G O L D C E N T R E Dear Friends - - Here’s Henk: Dear Reader: Isn't gold keeping us busy? In both directions, up and down and again and again. As with so many things in life, there are two ways to look at it. The glass is half empty or the glass is half full. In my view, gold is taking its time to build a base. The non-believers are playing it down every time but sooner or later they are bound to burn their fingers, I think. Some people argue that there is no real reason why gold should go up, thereby referring to the pretty even balance between supply and demand. I look at it a little differently. One day there will be a shortage of gold and I dont think that day will be too far away. Read my Editorial Comment and “Global Gold Production” by ZEAL'S Scott Wright in the attached August issue of GOLDVIEW. I take pleasure to present a NEW SUPPORTING COMPANY that is a s
Court orders disclosure of Fed's emergency loans Submitted by cpowell on 06:50PM ET Monday, August 24, 2009. Section: Daily Dispatches By Jonathan Stempel Reuters Monday, August 24, 2009 NEW YORK -- A federal judge on Monday ruled against an effort by the U.S. Federal Reserve to block disclosure of companies that participated in and securities covered by a series of emergency funding programs as the global credit crisis began to intensify. In a 47-page opinion, Chief District Judge Loretta Preska of the federal court in Manhattan said the central bank failed to show that disclosure would cause borrowers in the Federal Reserve System to suffer "imminent competitive harm" by stigmatizing them for using Fed lending programs. "The board essentially speculates on how a borrower might enter a downward spiral of financial instability if its participation in the Federal Reserve lending

Stockhouse Gold and Silver Supplement

Stockhouse Gold and Silver Supplement Why China is about to buy a lot more silver Posted: 24 Aug 2009 10:56 AM PDT Citizens urged to put 3% to 5% of their net worth in precious metals Two years ago, on August 21, China’s government allowed its citizens to invest in an entirely new asset. It allowed them to invest in Hong Kong-listed stocks. Hong Kong is a special region of China. It’s one of the most dynamic, capitalistic places on Earth. The move from the government was a move toward “investment freedom” for the Chinese people. On that day, Hong Kong’s benchmark stock index rose 8.74%. Over the next two and a half months, it skyrocketed from 11,000 to over 20,000. It was a chapter in a story that you should get used to over the coming years: When the Chinese decide to invest in something, it causes giant ripples across the world. This sort of situation is starting to happen again: This time it’s happening in precious metals, especially silver. The Chines
