What to Know About 0% Credit Card Transfers

Filed in ceo, Debt, dividend, Gold Investment by on September 13, 2010 0 Comments

Consumers are constantly bombarded with credit card deals, especially balance transfer promos to get you to switch cards. These deals often aren’t what they’re cracked up to be, however. After a recent search, I found several cards offering 0% interest on balance transfers for 12-18 months. Sounds too good to be true? It usually is. The catch is that the transfer fee, which can be up to 5 percent of the amount transferred, gets placed on your card immediately. That raises your balance by 5% right off the bat, so you’ll need to do some math to find out what your actual savings will be, if any. As in any credit card “deal,” the key is to read the fine print. If you happen to miss a payment, you could get slammed with late fees and dig yourself a deeper hole. Once the 0% introductory period expires, you might also be subject to significantly higher-than-average interest rates. Furthermore, your rates could be adjustable, meaning the company can raise them should interest rates begin to climb. Instead of transferring your balance, a smarter move could be to call your current card company and inform them of your plans. You’d be surprised how willing to negotiate a credit card issuer becomes when faced with the prospect of losing a customer. Again, do the math ahead of time to evaluate whether transferring your balance to a different card is the right option for you. There’s nothing wrong with a little investigation to see if you can save money on repaying debt, but try and keep your attention focused on investing where you can generate income instead. The secret to building long-term wealth is to concentrate your time on finding ways to make your money work for you. Of course, I always recommend income-generating high quality dividend paying stocks as the best way to do that! Paul Rubillo is the founder and CEO of Dividend.com.

BP oil spill: words flow in Louisiana, but communication is blocked

Filed in Bank Gold, gld by on May 27, 2010 0 Comments

The mood in Louisiana over the Deep Horizon oil catastrophe has matured from shock, to bafflement, to anger and has now slipped into the surreal. Stanton had come, along with a senior representative of BP, to address the people of Phoenix, a small community on the east bank of the Mississippi. In the end, the head of the coastguard adopted a more conciliatory tone. “There’s nothing I can say that will comfort you,” he said to the crowd whose livelihoods – some believe their entire way of life – are in the balance.

The Basics of Support and Resistance

April 25, 2010 When it comes to trading the financial markets, support and resistance levels are the basis of almost all technical analysis charting patterns. In the simplest terms, support and resistance levels are where the forces of supply and demand meet. They can be extremely obvious on some financial charts, or hard to spot without many years of experience on others. Support and resistance levels are found in financial charts, from stocks, commodities, indexes, options, interest rates, even ETF and mutual fund charts. They are powerful trading tools when used correctly and with risk management. When the price of a stock, or stock market index, moves lower, it is because more traders are selling than buying. This tells us that supply is increasing but demand is not. Selling is seen as bearish. When the price of a stock or stock market index moves higher, it is because more traders are buying than selling. Supply is decreasing while demand is increasing. Buying is seen as bullish. For this report we will look at individual stocks. Support When a stock reaches a point at which there are no more sellers, and the balance tips to buyers, prices begin to rise. This creates a support level that technical analysts will watch in the future as it may offer clues to future market moves. Not all levels created by reversals in price wind up being tested again. However those that do may react to the resistance or support level. “When it comes to trading the financial markets, support and resistance levels are the basis of almost…

A Chinese Trade Deficit?

A Chinese Trade Deficit?

From Reuters : China’s $7.24 billion deficit in March, the first time the trade balance has been in the red since April 2004, mainly reflected strong imports of oil, raw materials and cars, the General Administration of Customs said on Saturday. Here is a time series plot of the log trade weighted real value of the Chinese yuan, and the (annualized) trade balance. Figure 1: Log trade weighted real value of the CNY (blue, left scale); and Chinese annualized trade balance, in billions of USD (red, right scale), and 12 month trailing moving average (purple). CNY series is spliced, to incorporate swap rates in pre-1994 data; see discussion in (Chinn, Dooley and Shrestha, 1999). Source: IMF, International Financial Statistics , various issues, and author’s calculations. The general consensus appears to be that the deficit was driven by distortions in output and shipping around the lunar new year, in combination with a surge in imports to be used in exports. From WSJ : Economists said March’s exports were lower than they otherwise would have been as factories were slow to reopen after the weeklong Lunar New Year holiday in February. Exports still grew quickly in March, but the expansion slowed to 24.3% from a year earlier, compared to 31.4% growth in the first two months of the year. With the March trade figures showing no fundamental change in China’s economic trend, analysts still generally expect China to move away from the strict peg to the dollar it has kept since July 2008. Economists say a more flexible and stronger currency could help China better handle rising inflationary pressures, and manage its

Sucking up to Israel and messing with the balance of world harmony- inasmuch as such a thing exists- comes at great cost. Sarkozy got hammered in his regional election and now he’s a duck with a big cast on his leg. They went after Berlusconi and Berlusconi won his regionals. I don’t know if Berlusconi and I could sit down for a glass of Campari- like the one I’m having right now- but he’s a good friend of Putin’s so it could be I don’t get certain things and that’s what I want to talk about today.
