Occupy Wall Street is a growing worldwide protest movement that began on September 17, 2011 in New York city to fight economic corruption and greed.
The 99% Speak Up
A characteristic slogan of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement is “We are the 99%,” which refers to the fact that 1% of the people control 99% of the wealth. The OWS movement attempts to speak for the 99% of people that make up the rest of the population.
Occupy Wall Street protests have grown from an initial group of thousands of people camping out in NYC’s financial district to hundreds of cities worldwide.
Route Causes of OWS Frustration
The world economy has become increasingly more complex in the recent past. This has caused economic turmoil not only in the United States, but also in Europe. The interlinked economies of the world have created a domino effect on economic actions taken around the globe.
The current Greek Euro Crisis, is creating alot of uncertainty in Europe. Since US Banks and Investment companies are heavily invested in Europe, the US is also experiencing fear related to what will happen to the Euro. The US has also seen unprecedented debt as the government continues to borrow more money to eliminate debt, a viscous cycle that creates bigger problems.
The Magic of Volatility
The mathematical word for uncertainty in the financial markets is “Volatility.” In layman’s terms, volatility just means that people are confused about what will happen with the price of the asset. We’ve seen record high levels of volatility in the Stock Market and the Foreign Currency Exchange.
Volatility is a good thing if you know how to take advantage of it. Right now we’re seeing incredible amounts of confusion about what will happen in Europe, the United States, and in the rest of the world. For smart investors there is a Golden opportunity happening right now that will create more wealth than ever before…faster than ever before.
Occupy Your Personal Economy
It’s important right now to diversify your investments. No longer is it safe to have all of your investment capital in stock market based equity mutual funds, real estate, or bonds. In fact, any investment strategy where you place your faith exclusively in any ONE COUNTRY could potentially have you bankrupt in the next few years.
As the smart investors take their money out of one part of the globe and shift it to another, the money will continue to flow around the world. We are likely to see rapidly fluctuating currency prices over the next few years. This provides a HUGE opportunities for trading foreign currencies.
The flow of wealth worldwide MUST flow from one currency to another. The FOREX is the largest financial market in the world. It’s where all the money in the world is exchanged. For long-term financial stability and to protect yourself against domestic risk, be sure to invest in a portfolio of currencies as part of your wealth generation strategy in order to secure your future financial freedom.
The absolute best 13 mutual funds based on a CNN survey got 0.25% in 2011 to date. Your savings account is paying more… neither one can keep up with current inflation.
Mutual Fund Meltdown
For the past two decades the public has been sold on the fact that the stock market will always go up over time. Commission based salesman have sold people mutual funds in the 401K as a retirement planning solution. It seemed like a safe & secure way to invest…for awhile it was…
A recent news story on the popular US news show 60 minutes exposed the high level of dishonesty in the equity mutual fund industry. IF you have any of your retirement savings in a 401K plan or IRA (individual retirement account), watch this video immediately (warning: what you see may SHOCK you)
The financial world we are living in is different than it’s ever been in our lifetime. The S&P downgraded the US credit rating in August. The US monetary system isn’t based on gold, it’s based on confidence. This confidence is rapidly eroding…but there is good news for people who wish to educate themselves.
Financial Common Sense
If we look at this situation honestly it’s actually not that shocking that people who had a financial incentive to legally take your money would do so if it would make them rich. It’s a painful lesson, but we also need to claim personal responsibility.
When it’s all said & done it’s your choices that will grant you financial security. Regardless of your age or income level your retirement planning is best left in your own hands & not to someone else. The good news is that you can learn what to do to invest wisely.
Equity Mutual Fund Alternatives
The old ideas of keeping all of your investments in the US Stock Market aren’t going to work moving into the future. With peak oil being reached, we’re not going to see the type of economic growth that we have in the past.
What we are seeing is a shift in where investors worldwide are placing their money. As the US and countries in Europe reach their peak, growth will be experienced in other countries. Money will also be moved around alot more from one currency to another and from various commodities and currencies.
Our money itself is now going to be a lot more sensitive as the world we are living in continues to change. With new information being available to investors worldwide & the financial markets being highly connected worldwide it’s now possible to take advantage of these opportunities for the savvy investor.
Currency Trading Golden Age
In a few years there might not be a US Dollar or a EURO. In fact, many economists are predicting this. But in our lifetimes we will continue to use some form of currency worldwide. There may come a day when there is a world currency, but we aren’t likely to see it in our lifetimes.
This is a great opportunity for you if you would take control of your own financial future and trade currency on the forex market. You can easily protect yourself from the weakening US stock market and the collapsed real estate market and actually profit from the weakening dollar.
If you’re not used to this way of thinking it may seem scary to you. When people ask me what I think about the dollar I tell them as long as it moves up or down I can profit from it! Right now is a golden opportunity for you to profit in an otherwise poor economy (see how a portfolio of currencies performs independently of the state of the economy shattering equity mutual fund performance to pieces).
