I still have full faith in a turn in the jobs,and make the following statements in support.I have been watching the earnings of large business,they are blowout Large business wont hire now because of Gov policy on health ,tax and some greed. Good will come out of these poor numbers, November will be the pay back.Goverment over spending will not go on,people will not stand for it any more. If we get an inprovement things will get better.
Nothing but nothing beats the stock market,when played smart.That is,doing the homework,buying stocks best of breed from each and all sectors.Overweight in the sectors that do well at a given point in the economic cycle.Watching the market for over bought or sold conditions at the same time studying company earnings,around this are the trades.And very important,not being greedy or do not want to pay the tax man
That may have had some truth years ago but not now. Gold is getting hard to find,and we have China who is buying,not to be safe but for fun.The best way to play gold is ticker GLD,silver and platinum good too.But no more than 5-10% of your total investments,and never buy anything all at once.
