Many online brokers are cutting their commissions to nil (0 zero), because of the climate that brokerages such as Robin Hood has had on the industry, allowing free trades of equities to their clients.

Since then other brokers have also cut their commissions to incur more of fairer playing field for their investors, traders and account holders. Many have speculated this was bound to happen at some point. Well, it looks like it has finally arrived. -SB

By: Economic & Finance Report

Roth IRA, Traditional IRA both are prudent saving plans that need to be evaluated for your financial future, and more so your financial needs.

A Roth IRA allows you the benefit of not paying income tax, while you are placing income in your Roth IRA account.

A Traditional IRA can allow you to have an income tax deduction, the incoming year you contribute.

Both Roth & Traditional are beneficial to take note of; the primary responsibility should be getting enrolled, and begin saving for “rainy days.  This will surely come into fruition during your life.

Don’t just sit there and read what I’m writing. Read what I’m writing then go open a Traditional IRA, or Roth IRA, heck open both….-SB

Various fund and portfolio managers have to take risk to get ahead in this ever growing investing markets, especially as the new year begins in 2015.  There are a few research studies floating about; that indicate that portfolio managers, fund managers, asset allocation managers and other finance managers, lag way behind the money markets when certain investment initiatives are not in place. Overall their records perform unusually low without taking the necessary risk  to attain net profit gains.

Managers that do not take the necessary risks in diversifying their portfolios to allocate the funds in various risk allocations, lose the incentives to attain profit, then allowing them to underperform in other aspects of their trading accounts and portfolios. At the end of it all, instituting monitored risk or calculated risk is more appropriate in establishing decent results for clients portfolios.
