Market Update and News Tidbits

This week, Paul Nichols, the president of Financial Abundance, a registered investment advisor, does his routine market update. Paul decided to chat a little bit about some current news as well as a reminder as to the scientific truth and the empirical realities of investing in a structured investment platform. It’s vital that you understand how to get market returns when it comes to having any confidence about income planning, estate planning, and wealth strategies.

To Defer Taxes or Not?

Besides the usual market update and some rational academic clarity concerning countries sovereign debt and default, Paul Nichols, the investor coach, is pulling back the curtain on the concept of tax deferral like never before. The vast majority of Americans are making the wrong choice when looking at deferring taxes by utilizing traditional IRAs. With the rare exception of a few individuals and families, tax deferral does nothing for most investors, but cost them more money, gives less security and less disposable income in retirement. Do not defer any more taxes until you get the facts about the reality of income distributions in retirement.

Permanent Tax Lien

Paul, with Financial Abundance, does a market update this week. This show, as well, focuses on a crucial question that must be answered when it comes to attempting retirement planning, looking at your financial investments, preparing for income streams, as well as potential risk areas that could force you to spend down your life savings. The question deals with future tax rates and the reality that many Americans have a permanent tax lien on their retirement accounts and do not even realize it when they’re going to take the first financial hit in retirement.

Is It Gambling or Is It Investing?

This week, Paul focuses on the usual market update, coupled with the three most common investor mistakes. These are mistakes that happen every day, they are…almost encouraged by the industry. The transactional costs that results from mind boggling trading volume daily, creates a huge windfall for the financial services industry. The vast majority of this trading is due mostly to one of these investing mistakes or a variation of all three. They can be very elusive and subtle. Knowledge is power; you don’t need to know everything, just a few right things to be a successful investor.

Care Planning

This week Paul does the normal market update along with some coaching nuggets concerning long-term care insurance planning and design. Long-term care planning is one of the most difficult arenas of financial planning to accomplish because one never knows until the final analysis whether care was needed. Longevity and the potential need for care require prudent planning in this area as well as understanding of how income and cash flow play into the formula.

Where Do Returns Come From?

Paul focuses on a primary question, do returns come from the market or do returns come from fund managers? In the market update you get an idea of how the different asset classes are performing year to date when it comes to retirement planning, income distributions, taxation, and wealth strategies. Education leads to clarity, clarity leads to confidence, and with confidence good decisions ensue.
