Is the economy stumbling, or is this business as usual?

The US economy has failed to improve over recent months, and at the same time the Australian economy is slowing due to weakness in Asia. This begs the question of whether or not a Recession is just around the corner? Investors certainly are starting to panic. US Federal Reserve chairwomen Janet Yellen released the Federal… Read More

Australian Household debt is out of control. And it is your Retirement that will suffer!

Do you feel like you are living in debt? Finding it hard to get ahead? Australia leads the world in household debt with debt to income figures worse now than before the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) in 2008. In fact, household debt is at its highest level on record!

Australian Economy

2014 – Wow – what a year we have had here in the lucky country! A fairy tale grand final victory, for South Sydney, worthy of a Russell Crowe Hollywood blockbuster; the ongoing political soap opera within the Palmer Not-So-United Party and the crowning glory, hosting the G20 summit to discuss and achieve – well… Read More

Why-trading-headlines-will-help-you-lose-money-for-no-real-reason

Why trading headlines will help you lose money for no real reason.

Let’s face it, we all love a great headline and right now, in financial markets, nothing could summarise things more clearly than the above. Let me explain. This week I was planning on writing an article on oil. Very topical given the price moves and having spent a fair bit of time at the airport… Read More

Will you receive a stocking full of Coal this year? Pray that you do!

Commodity prices have been declining throughout 2014, having a direct impact on the Australian economy, and in the end, how joyous all our Christmas’s will be! Investors have felt the pinch of a declining market, with the ASX200 basically unchanged Year to Date and having suffered from a 5.5% decline from its intra-year high of… Read More

Where will the investment growth come from?

Should we be prepared to accept lower returns as global stock markets capitulate, Bond yields decline, and a potential Housing bubble has priced the cost of property in Sydney and Melbourne beyond the first home buyer and into the echelon of high net wealth investors? You would be forgiven for being worried about how to… Read More

Don’t panic! The stock market hasn’t crashed yet … But will it?

Australia, economically, is sitting in a pretty good space. Average weekly wages are slowly increasing; Unemployment is serviceable at 6.4%; Annual GDP growth rate might be mild at 3.5% but better than most developed nations; Inflation is within target at 3.0%; and Consumer Spending continues to improve following the 2008 Global Financial Crisis (GFC). On… Read More

Did the dog wag its tail, or the tail wag its dog.com?

The past couple of weeks have been an interesting spot for observation – when it comes not to the market, but people’s pattern of behaviour.

Imagine if you were next on the redundancy list?

Over the past few months, one of the most sensitive issues facing the Australian workforce has been Job Security. Getting a regular income is something that we all perhaps can take for granted and the prospect of that income ceasing, due to any factor is very unsettling.
