The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 460.19 points, or about 1.8 percent, at 25,502.32. Meanwhile, the "yield curve" inverted for the first time since 2007. That means a Treasury bill that matures in three months is yielding 2.45 percent -- slightly more than the yield of a Treasury note that matures in 10 years. While the yield curve is still often a predictor of recessions, it may well not be imminent.
There's a lot of confusion about how retirement savings accounts work, even among those who are more well-prepared for retirement. That's what TD Ameritrade concluded after a 2019 survey that The Harris Poll conducted for them asked U.S. adults with at least $10,000 in investable assets to answer questions about 401(k) plans and individual retirement accounts (IRAs). These three questions were particularly tricky and stumped at least half of all respondents: 1.
The US dollar has broken down a bit during the week, reaching towards the ¥110 level. This is a very bearish weekly candle stick, and it does suggest that perhaps we are going to continue to go a bit lower from here. If that's going to be the case, it's very likely that we will see a move through the ¥110 level, and perhaps down to the ¥108 level given enough time.
Shares have U.S. auto giant Ford (NYSE:F) have been in a secular decline for several years now.

On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, I recorded my second biggest single-day loss ever of -$29,058.17, almost all of that due to a single trade. Although not my biggest loss ever, it is the largest I've had in recent history. It's also the worst one I've had since I started my challenge of growing my trading account from $583 to $1 million just over two years ago.
In an about-face on the trade dispute, President Trump conceded that tariffs on Chinese goods may remain for a “substantial period of time.” Simultaneously, this hurts the broader markets but it also raises prospects for cheap stocks. Most speculative miners have projects in extremely unstable countries just begging for nationalization.
In the golden hills of California's San Joaquin Valley, oil jacks pump what is among the world's most expensive types of crude. Buena Vista's posted price is $70.53 a barrel, more than $10 above West Texas Intermediate futures and almost $3 more than Brent. The oil is also more expensive than international grades such as Dubai and Oman.
But it doesn't matter. There is so much money run algorithmically that stocks are pre-ordained to come down because the recession pattern post inversion has been a reliable one. So, you can't stop the rain coming down on this market until you get a host of people to realize there are bargains even if we have a big slowdown and if we are in are in a real jam the Fed can cut rates if it has to.
Most people think they're above average in intelligence, relationship status and professional achievement. Social scientists call this “illusory superiority.” My business partner Scott Puritz, has found the one area where even above-average people, objectively smart, rich, successful professionals, seem to wave the white flag and admit to not understanding — money and investing. “One of the most shocking things is the low-level financial literacy throughout our culture,” Puritz told the Washington Post.
The company serves a wide spectrum of “do-it-yourself” and “do-it-for-me” customers, including homeowners, renters and professional contractors from different construction trades. A large footprint of conveniently located stores across the U.S., an extensive range of products, a well-known brand and a diversified customer base are Lowe's key competitive advantages. This should lead to better growth prospects for the company and its dividend.
DUBAI/LONDON (Reuters) - Budget needs are forcing Saudi Arabia to push for oil prices of at least $70 per barrel this year, industry sources say, even though U.S. shale oil producers could benefit and Riyadh's share of global crude markets might be further eroded. Riyadh, OPEC's de facto leader, said it was steeply cutting exports to its main customers in March and April despite refiners asking for more of its oil. The move defies U.S. President Donald Trump's demands for OPEC to help reduce prices while he toughens sanctions on oil producers Iran and Venezuela.
A recent study has revealed for the first time the 10 biggest causes of financial regret among those who have retired or are near to retirement. The information may help those who are currently working and saving, by giving them more ability to plan their finances and prepare.

What's important to note is that many companies — especially large ones like Microsoft , Amazon and Google — all have one thing in common: We utilize A.I., machine-learning and data science to enhance our products, so hiring people with the right skills to fill those gaps is a huge priority. The real struggle, however, is being able to successfully separate the wheat from the chaff.

The bill was introduced by Representatives Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), Denny Heck (D-WA), Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Warren Davidson (R-OH) and has 138 co-sponsors in the House. “Allowing banks to work with the cannabis industry is vital for public safety, transparency and increasing access to capital for small businesses and marginalized communities,” said Morgan Fox, spokesman for the National Cannabis Industry Association, which is lobbying heavily for the bill.

One of the most common ways to start saving for retirement is through an employer-sponsored 401(k) plan. Most companies offer them, and for most people, this is their sole retirement savings account. But with so many options, unfamiliar terms, stipulations, and rules, 401(k)s can be mystifying even to more financially literate savers.
