Thought for the day, plus some posts on the Stock Market, Finance, Politics, and Life!
A good article for those living paycheck to paycheck with no savings. I think saving is the most important part of any budget!

“The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, but I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see I will never find the light unless, like a candle, I am my own fuel.” ~ Bruce Lee
A good article on why buying into the consumption lifestyle doesn't bring you happiness.

The S&P continued its pullback this past week, putting in a low yesterday of -2.72% below the last high on 3/1/17 of 2400.98. We'll have to see if the 50 SMA (blue line on chart below) holds some support next week. I would like to see a further pullback of maybe another -2% to -7%, then a push back up. That would allow me to put some cash to work in my investments, and some nice trade set-ups. My PFF stopped out on Tuesday for +.11% gain. I tried a trade of VOO on the 23rd, but it failed and stopped out yesterday for a -.58% loss.
