Investing: No better Time Than The Present!

 #1 Crypto - Crypto Exchange Binance

Look, money can be funny. 

Not having enough of it or none at all isn't the slightest bit tickling. Yet, we play with it everyday just to discard it as soon as the next shiny object appears. Take it from me, you just don't want to keep working your butt off everyday and then having nothing to show for it when you no long can work your butt off!

If you are a baby-boomer, you've undoubtedly heard these old wise words...... 

 CryptoTab 2018 Bitcoin Mining Pool Referral

"Work hard, save your money" 

Or how about,

 “When you work on something that only has the capacity to make you $5, it does not matter how much harder you work, the most you will make is $5.” ~ that one is by Idowu Koyenikan.

 Powur Solar Disrupt & decentraize

If you are a millennial, you may be tech savvy and all, yet, the way you deal with savings, debts & retirement is still just as common and related as it was a generation before the baby-boomers.

Both these quotes have a relationship and a dissolution about them. 

Yes, you can work hard and save, while the amount you save, is all that gets saved! No matter how hard you work.

When we are younger, the world seems endless, our future.....immortal. We rack up school/student loans and credit card debts. Cars and other notes, on the firm belief that it will get paid off in the future. Not really concern about the repayment till near it's due date. In those days, we were in fact, simply living for only the next day.

Before you know it, you've got a wife or husband, a couple of awesome kids, a house & car note. All the while, that credit card & student loan is not only still there, it hasn't shrunk. In fact, because of the family and all that comes with it, that credit card has also multiplied. And the debt owed on them alone eats up a nice chunk of income monthly. 

And yet, we haven't even gotten to the savings part. First, take a look at a previous post on "Accumulate wealth, eliminate debt".

 Curadebt Debt relief

Then saving and investing becomes your stairway to financial security.

As I mentioned in this earlier post, saving isn't really doing much for you except baby-sitting your money till you decide on some new shiny toy to purchase or withdraw it just to pay on another debt. 

Once there is a clear understanding that as long as you "owe someone", you'll never truly become financially independent nor wealthy.

Those of us who haven't giving up on dreams, goals or that bucket-list. Understand that we have to step-up our game. Money doesn't grow on trees yet it can grow. Money does make the world go round. And we need more of it just to see some of it.   

Now millennial's, because they are born into this new world of technology, computers, smartphones & apps, they have a slight edge. Baby-boomers & retirees may have to overcome some learning curves. Yet, we are in an era, that really does offer anyone with the patience & willingness to succeed an opportunity to grow their income substantially no matter what you have to start with.

Live an Epic Life - 100 Day Challenge

With that being said, it is this technology, that is offering these opportunities. Which is as I mention earlier, why the millennial's have a slight advantage over say, senior citizens. 

Through these technologies, we put our money into, so as to see our own money grow out of it. 

In the financial world, they call it "Investing" with the dictionary explaining it as follows.

"Expend money with the expectation of achieving a profit or material result by putting it into financial schemes, shares, or property, or by using it to develop a commercial venture."

Investing - allows you to have your money work for you. As we get older, (not old), just older. Working smarter is just common sense than trying to keep working harder. I believe that we are not here just to work, pay bills than die. No, no, no.........!

Investing allows for compound interest. Over time and long term planning, the stock markets have consistently rose. Offering a much better returns for your dollar. Tax advantages, exciting while contributing to your favorite product, business or ventures. All these plus, you can make investing profitable, fun & worthwhile.

Why is investing now as good or even better as any other time in history?

If we talk about a long term investment strategies......say 10, 15 or 25 years from now. We are not just talking about retirees but, the millennial's for the next 15 - 25 years.

Using compound interest, if you were to take $5,000.00 and invest it into a stock, adding $100 per month for the next 15 years. Having a broker or you manage that investment for a mere 10% per month return rate. At the end of 15yrs, that initial $5,000.00 plus $100.00/month investment would now become $64,070. ($23,000 on principal & $41,070 in interest).

Not to complicate things to much, yet, one can tap into a little day trading or swing trading and that 10% monthly return rate would increase that percentage.

Now that's just a small investment and just a little effort to manage a 10% monthly yield. The right product or company pick could dramatically increase your chances of turning that initial investment into something super crazy.

Which brings me to....."No better time than the present"

There are industries and products set forth today for tomorrow, that are truly what are called "disruptive technology".  You know some of yesteryear's disruptive techs like personal computers that disrupted the typewriter, Email disrupted the mail system, cellphone disrupted the landline telephone network, laptops disrupted the personal computer, smartphone disrupted all above and alternative energy is disrupting the fossil fuel industry. 

The companies that support & produce these future products are going to make ordinary people, not just wealthy, yet, multi-millionaires and even billionaires in the long run. All simply because they took time to learn how to invest, paying attention to trends and take action.

POST  ~  D.W.W.D. Do What the Wealthy Do exactly where we are today. Just to name a few disruptive products starting with the international fiat currency system being disrupted by Blockchain technology, Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies,  atlcoins & tokens. 

The pharmaceutical and alcohol companies are being disrupted by the Marijuana/cannabis/cannabidiol evolution.

Renewable & clean energy, Drone technology (UAV) or (AI) Artificial Intelligence are just a gleams into the future markets.

So yeah........Learn to invest now. Better late than never. If you didn't know, someone just informed you.

Sit Down, Be Humble Be Calm......Stocks, Crypto Markets ~ This Is What Mr. Market Does!

Introducing Mr. Market,

Stock prices move around wildly over very short periods of time. This does not mean that the values of the underlying companies have changed very much during that same period. In effect, the stock market acts very much like a crazy guy named Mr. Market.” ~ Joel GreenblattThe Little Book That Beats the Market

What Goes up Does Come Down ~ Opportunities & Options Game On!

Stock Market Downward Trend Chart

666 Is Never A Great Combination 

After such a fruitful run these last few years, today Wall Street is hit deep. A reminder that the markets possess a high volatility. And it's back with a vengeance. It's only been 8 other times that the Dow has hit below 600 at 665 about 2.5% at close. This is the steepest decline since 2008. Even the European markets are fairing the sting.

As a stronger than expected jobs report added 200,000 manufacturing jobs equaling a $0.09 or 2.5% wage growth. Was it the fear of interest rates hikes that sparks the sell-off. Or just a panic? Moving forward, what does this mean now? 

Just off the heels of President Trump's State of the Union  where the Commander In Chief proclaimed 2.4 million jobs added, jobless claims at a 45 year low, the Dow Jones roars 25% last year. Analysts believe that the tax cuts and deregulations contributed to corporate profits, employee bonuses and rising stock prices. 

This is all great news for everyone across the board in the financial world. So why then did the markets react as they did? Is this a sign of something positive or an inkling of a much more volatile market in the days ahead.

The possible worry could have been if the Federal Reserve decided to rise rates. Which would have a rippling effect within the financial industry. 

Federal Reserve "Fed" for short, is an U.S. financial institution who job is primarily responsible for the upkeep of our banking system. It can dispense trillions of dollar into the economy to stimulate growth and employment.

Why rise the interest rates? Generally, in fear of "inflation" or simply, if your money starts to buy you less than before.  Another way to look at inflation, there is more money circulating than products to buy. So the bank slow down the money power by making it hard to borrow.  In a nutshell!

The  fed regulate the base interest rate that banks can lend funds to another bank. All other banks rates are adjusted around this set figure. Higher rates means less loans, because more interest in being paid on the money they already have in the banks.

They first raise the rates they charge large corporation better known as prime-rates. Next, mortgages and credit cards are rated against the prime. Then , small business and personal loans are affected. And that folks, is how they run our money. 

Decentralized Banking?

Makes you think a little about why all the fuss over altcoins & cryptocurrencies. 

Buy or sell Cryptocurrency Hodl Long Term

Makes you go uhmm.........

Yes, even the digital currency has taken on their fair share of onslaught this week. All major cryptocurrencies are in a back paddling mode. 

As always, best bet is to hodl, cryptocurrency should have been brought with the intention of a long-term investment. If you must sell, do 30%  and re-invest into another altcoin.

Always do your due diligence and seek professionals in that field.
