How things look on paper, versus how they turn out in the real world are often times very different. Both in the market, and in other aspects of life.
Just look at the MLB playoffs. On PAPER, the Astros should’ve destroyed the Rays, but here we are going to a Game 5 to decide the series. That’s why they play the game!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- How the market reacts, and how people THINK the market will react, to events is often very different. Ben writes about a potential impeachment and what could happen.
- Maureen shares some statistics about how much the average person is earning on their cash, and the benefits of online savings banks.
- The two words people HATE the most “paying taxes”. However, Ashby writes about why in some situations it would be SMART to pay those taxes.
- Despite what you may have heard last week, the new “free-trading” from brokerage firms may not turn out to be truly free.
