SuzeOrman.com Common Sense Financial Advice

Suze Orman is the financial guru for the rest of us. She gives very easy to understand; almost dumb down, financial information that many of us don’t seem to understand looking at the current credit crisis. On the web site SuzeOrman.com Orman states she is an “internationally acclaimed financial expert.” Suze Orman was also named one of Time Magazines most influential people of 2008. I like Suze Orman for her no nonsense and entertaining financial advice, but I’m not sure if she would have gotten as far as she has without making several appearances on Oprah. A lot of her advice has to do with getting out of debt, starting a nest egg, and improving your credit score. All of which I’d say is common sense… for this reason I feel Suze Orman is more of a motivational speaker getting people to do what they know they should do. Suze Orman first real job was at Merrill Lynch which is how her financial career started. She recommends Vanguard's S&P 500 index fund (VFINX) or its Total Stock Market index fund (VTSMX). Suze Orman also recommends “Exchange-traded funds that let you own particular sectors, like iShares MSCI Emerging Markets (EEM), United States Oil Fund (USO) or the Metals & Mining SPDR (XME) (Money.CNN.com).” If Suze Orman’s common sense and entertaining approach to financial health gets people to take action than I’m all for it.

Southwest Airlines, The Only Airline With a Sound Business Model?

In April I took a vacation to Las Vegas. My airline of choice was Southwest. I was able to get the incredibly low fare of $80 each way through a special promotion called “Get Away Fares.” Other airlines price based on what all the other airlines are doing, but Southwest seems to truly have “sale” fares. If you are flexible in the days and times you leave, Southwest can save you a bundle. For example Southwest Airlines doesn’t charge you for your second bag as some other airlines do, then also throw in free curbside check-in. To find Southwest’s sale offers on the main page click on the “Special Offers” tab on the top of the page. One of the top offers currently is flying nonstop between Denver, CO and select West Coast cities for $79 one-way. Not bad in the era of rising jet fuel prices. “The Dallas-based airline has used derivatives to hedge the cost of more than 70% of its estimated fuel consumption for 2008 and 55% of its estimated costs for 2009 and is paying a price equivalent to $51 per barrel of crude oil (WashingtonPost.com).” In an article titled ‘Why Southwest Soars While Other Airlines Sag’ in the Chicago Sun Times Southwest Airlines chief executive officer Gary Kelly states, “We now board more passengers annually than any other airline in the world.” According to TheStreet.com revenues for Southwest were up 15.10% last quarter. The stock price (LUV) is up 25.85% over the last 3 months.

Free MIT Audio/Video Courses Online

This is kind of old news, but I still love this idea that I wish more colleges would take notice of and participate in. MIT offers many of their lectures on almost all subject matters in audio/video format. Check out MIT’s substantial collection of audio/video courses. For those of us that didn’t make in into MIT this is a great opportunity to learn from a college of this caliber. “The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a private university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. MIT has five schools and one college, containing 32 academic departments,[6] with a strong emphasis on scientific and technological research. MIT was founded by William Barton Rogers in 1861 in response to the increasing industrialization of the United States (Wikipedia.org).”

More Ways to Save on Gas… Buy a 120 MPG Scooter

Honda Reflex 249 cc Engine 70 MPG

You don’t have to buy a Toyota Prius or wait until the GM Volt comes out in 2010. You can get 120 miles to the gallon right now with a scooter! “The size of a scooter’s engine can range from 50 cc’s to 650 cc’s. A scooter with a smaller engine of 50 cc’s can get up to 120 miles per gallon with a top speed about 48 miles per hour. A larger scooter with an engine of 650 cc’s can get 50 mpg and reach 115 mph (Herald-Zeitung.com). From 2002 to 2007 scooter sales have doubled. In the first quarter of 2008 scooter sales are up 24% (MercuryNews.com).” The purchase of a scooter seems like a very sensible solution to high gas prices.

FXClub.com - Free Practice Forex Trading Account

I’m kind of strange I guess… I love the stock market. I watch CNBC, read financial magazines, books, newspapers, and browse market related internet sites. Even though I invest in the stock market like many people I don’t have a clue about Forex Trading. Forex Trading is The Foreign Exchange Currency Market. Currency, Forex, or FX exist wherever one currency is traded for another. “It is the largest financial market in the world, and includes trading between large banks, central banks, currency speculators, multinational corporations, governments, and other financial markets and institutions. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_exchange_market).” Currencies are traded against one another on the Foreign Exchange Currency Market. Lets say you have dollars and you buy EUROS. If those EUROS go up, you just made yourself some money! The nice part about Forex trading is unlike the stock market if one currency goes down there is always another currency going up.

Learn and trade Forex with free $100k demo account


So here’s where FXClub.com comes in. FX Club offers a free account where you practice trading currency with funny money. If you are feeling more confident in your abilities you can start trading your own money on FXClub’s web site.

Forex Club Financial Company, Inc. is located in the United States at 1200 South Avenue, Suite 203, Staten Island, New York 10314. You can call them US Toll-Free: 1-800-881-3809, or email them at info@fxclub.com. FX Club offers free training videos as well as the free practice account. This blog is all about making money and since the stock market is so volatile right now there isn’t a better time to get into or at least try currency trading. The least a practice account can give you is additional knowledge in a field you previously knew nothing about.

Seattle’s Weather! Global Warming, What Global Warming?

I can’t believe it in the age of global warming June has turned out to be the coldest in more than a century here in Seattle. With weather records going back to 1852 we are matching and even beating record low temperatures in the region. It’s so cold here that as I type it’s STILL snowing in the mountains! This is the actual forecast from the National Weather Service… “A fierce storm could bring five to 10 inches of new snow to Washington’s Cascade Mountains, particularly in the higher elevation.” I’m going to get my skis out and get up there right away. I can probably count on my hands how many nice days we’ve had all year. I’m been a Northwesterner all my life, but I’m this close to moving to Arizona.

Walmart Free Classified Ad Service - http://walmart.oodle.com/

Walmart now has a Craigslist like free classified ad service. Like Craigslist Walmart’s classified ad service is free. I’ve already posted an ad on the Walmart site and I’d say it’s even more user friendly than Craigslist. Not to mention the Walmart interface is much more attractive than the Craigslist text based one. The categories one can post in include cars and vehicles, property for rent, items for sale, jobs, pets, real estate, and tickets. The categories are limited so I’d still use Craigslist as my main free classified as service, but it’s nice to see a large company like Walmart embrace this type of free community enhancing service.
