Recession and the First Quarter 2008 – Avoiding Advisers Who Push Risky Products

I’m short on notes today, but heavy on great information in the audio of the show. I first provide my detailed perspective on the performance of the market in the first quarter of 2008. I then talk at length about staying focused on why you invested in the financial markets in the first place.

If you need a shot of “Good News and Financial Hope”, download the bullish Monday Morning Outlook from Brian S. Wesbury, Chief Economist at First Trust Portfolios.

I close out the show with my personal thoughts on avoiding schemes that have you risk your financial future by leveraging your house and other assets. These advisers are not looking out for you — they’re trying to fill-up their wallets with your money.

Thanks for the great comments and feedback. You guys have been the foundation that has allowed us to grow. If you notice that the show sounds like the volume peaks and distorts a bit today, please bear with my adjustments. I’ve had a few complaints about the show volume and I was working with the output volume. I think I’ve got it figured out so you should see an improvement in upcoming shows.
