Editor's Picks

Michael Haltman presents Mark To Market Eased: Making A Silk Purse From A Sow's Ear? Example Included posted at The Political and Financial Markets Commentator, saying, "These are complicated products that even the banks themselves, save for a few of the quants that created them, could either explain or describe. Products created with and about most every type of esoteric financial product available. Products with bid/ask spreads wide enough to drive a truck through. Products so illiquid that they may never trade and therefore can't be priced yet that allow the firms selling them to make huge money on them. You get the gist."

Darwin presents How to Profit from Employee Stock Options Regardless of Share Performance posted at Darwin's Finance, saying, "This article highlights how employees can capture income on their employee stock options regardless of how the shares perform in a down market."

etrades presents Option Trading Gives You Better Returns posted at eTrades, saying, "In option trading you pay a premium to give you the right to buy or sell some shares in the future.

You are obliged to make the purchase or sale within the specified time or risk the forfeiture of the premium paid."

Tushar Mathur presents Health Savings Accounts explained posted at Everything Finance, saying, "One thing is certain with healthcare: premiums continue to climb higher. As a result, more employees may find that health-savings accounts (HSA) have been added to their benefits packets this year, in some cases replacing HMO and PPO offerings."

ifvat presents Investing in the Stock Market posted at ifvat, saying, "If you want to start investing in the stock market, first spend quite a bit of time learning about investing and learning about the stock market. Don’t invest a dime if you don’t know what you’re doing. You could lose it all. Are you interested in learning more about investing your cash in the stock market? You should first be asking how does the stock market work to earn extra money and then keep working."

Silicon Valley Blogger presents $50 Sign Up Bonus When You Open A TradeKing Account posted at The Digerati Life.

Frank Vertin presents Just Buy Index Funds Directly posted at NO LOAD INDEX FUND, saying, "Buying an S&P 500 index fund through an investment counselor can substantially increase your initial purchasing costs and and drive up your annual management expense fees. Unfortunately, the vast majority of individual investors buy mutual funds and ETFs through brokers and investment advisers. Rarely do financial advisors recommend that you buy index funds with low fees. This is because low cost, no load mutual funds do not pay them as well as loaded, high fee mutual funds."

Larry Russell presents Most Individual Investors Are Poor Personal Portfolio Managers | Personal Investment Management posted at THE SKILLED INVESTOR Blog, saying, "Investors more easily understand investment costs that are directly measurable, such as fees deducted on investment statements. However, many investors ignore or are unaware of the opportunity costs of their sub-optimal investment behaviors. Opportunity costs are usually much more difficult to measure directly, but these investment costs can be even higher than more visible investment fees."

Walter W. Fouse presents 7 Ways to Pick the Best Noload Mutual Funds and ETFs posted at Best No Load Funds, saying, "The vast body of investment research studies show that there really are better approaches to buying and owning mutual funds and ETFs. You do not need to frantically chase fund performance. Performance chasing simply does not work."

Tallahassee Real Estate presents How To Make An Offer In Today’s Real Estate Market posted at Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, saying, "Regardless of who is receiving the offer, there is a definite plan one should follow if attaining the property at the best price is the primary goal. Too often, I see buyers and agents alike making amateurish mistakes that end up costing them the home that they wanted to buy."

Richard M. Rothschild presents The Top 14 Low Cost Taxable United States Bond Mutual Funds (Low Minimum Deposit) posted at Bond Market Index Funds, saying, "The top 14 low cost taxable US fixed income funds with a $10,000 or lower initial deposit. Low investment management fees are very important with fixed income funds. Simply put, if you pay higher bond mutual fund fees, then these bond management expenses tend just to be a deadweight loss to you. When you pay more in bond mutual fund fees, you are just wasting your money."

RJ presents Best Online Banks posted at Our Financial Planner.

Stock Trading Brokers presents SEC Considers Proposal for Uptick Rule posted at Stock Trading Brokers, saying, "Bring back the uptick rule. There was actually no harm done when it was there. When it's not broken, don't fix it. Now that people have shed light on it, of course there are criticisms."

Stephen Todd presents Currency Market - Online Currency Trading posted at Currency Trading, saying, "Currency Market - Online Currency Trading: Would you believe that currency trading is the biggest business in the world?
