**Market Update 2-26-09**

The big focus this week continued to be on banks. Stocks had been taking a beating as speculation of bank nationalization circulated among market participants. Reassuring comments from the White House and the Federal Reserve supporting a private banking system has eased concerns. The government is taking a bit of a different approach as they start using “stress tests” prior to injecting further capital into banks in order to only prop up those companies with long term viability. Although… Continue

No Money Down on a Home Loan

I hear that more lenders are requiring home buyers to make a 20% downpament for home purchases, with a fixed interest rate. Can the down payment be waived; are their options for a less expensive down payment?

2009 - "The Year of the Comeback!"

In 2008 I heard from people who had suffered massive losses to their finances. People lost homes, retirement accounts, businesses, and more. 2008 was one of the worst economic years we have seen in America for some time. But now it’s a New Year; its 2009 – “The Year of the Comeback!”

**Market Update 2-10-09**

Stocks plummeted this morning after Treasury Secretary Geithner unveiled the Obama administration’s new financial sector stabilization plan. The market is showing its dismay at the lack of specifics on the plan. One important item to note is that further injections of capital into financial entities will come with greater strings attached. Also today, the Senate has passed the $838 billion economic stimulus bill, which must now be reconciled with the House version before being sent to the… Continue

Talking about Finances can be Fun!

I bet you think I’m joking right? You’re probably thinking that talking about finances in the most boring thing in the world. Why should you talk about that?

Most people feel that having a lot of money will solve financial problems. “If I hit the lottery, I am going to be set for life.” Well how come most people that win the lottery are broke in a few years? The common theory is they lose it because they do not understand money…more importantly they never talk about it. And as the… Continue

**Market Update 2-6-09**

This morning, January’s payroll report came in worse than expected with the economy shedding 598,000 jobs last month, pushing the unemployment rate to 7.6%. In the wake of the report, Senators have even more pressure to take action on the current stimulus bill being debated. The Senate earlier in the week added an amendment temporarily offering homebuyers a tax credit worth $15,000 or 10% of the home’s value whichever is less. The measure is not limited to first home buyers, but would only be… Continue

**Market Update 2-3-09**

The Senate started official debate today on the Economic Stimulus Package that was passed by the House last week. There will likely be many amendments added as the Senate beefs up the plan in an attempt to shore up the housing market, expand infrastructure projects and increase tax cuts. There is a provision in the bill to restore the $729,750 loan limits in high cost areas that were available in 2008. There is also talk of providing lower interest rates, which as we have seen, despite Fed… Continue
