The link above is an interesting “muse” on the drivers of the current global position….debt rising appreciably in government and households, commodities bubble bursting, share buy-backs distorting balance sheets and prices plus a view that all is well and will continue to be so.

I like reading this sort of article and hope you will […]

Is there a correlation between share market & US Presidential elections?

Have a look at this article….its data from 1942 up until 2003 yet goes back to 1952 for The Test owing to the explanation in the article….makes sense when you read it.

China Syndrome….an article

Hi all,

the following link from Betashares puts some perspective around China and the headlines in all forms of media.

According to Russell Investments, the fundamentals of our market and those of the developed world are still OK.  With Europe down 15% since their high in April, our own market down […]

It is interesting that we are very involved in creating a lifestyle all through life and will make time to ensure it happens.  But ensuring […]

State of the Markets

There are many things that cause concern and elation in our various share markets around the world.   Elation when we have placed client money  and the markets go up!  Concern when the do the opposite or threaten to do the opposite.

Right now I feel that we are heading once again for some turbulence. […]

Most Noble Profession

I was just reminded about why I sell life insurance….since 1990 I have been doing just that on a small scale. Having read an article by a fellow in the USA called Ryan Pinney where he talks about his take on current life insurance trends and his feeling of being a life insurance salesman.

Is superannuation restricting you?

The new Contributions Limits for superannuation are very low for many people.   For example, you sell an asset or there is a matrimonial split and want to put the lions share into super….you’re limited to the legislated caps.   However, there are several ways to get a good result anyway.
