    The U.S. stock market remains the best place to invest

    Last year at this time global markets were in free fall, but in late December 2018 they turned around and some indexes have recently hit all-time highs. More than 10 years into a bull market, U.S. stocks remain among the world’s best performers. As of Monday’s, close, the S&P 500 index (SPX)  had gained 24.2% in 2019, while the Nasdaq Composite Index (COMP) had soared 28.6%.

    The 7 Best ETFs for Retirement Investors

    Mutual funds almost go hand-in-hand with retirement investing. And why not? The modern mutual fund predates exchange-traded funds (ETFs) by more than six decades. Most 401(k) plans hold nothing but mutual funds. So it's reasonable to link one with the other.But don't sleep on exchange-traded funds. As you'll soon find out, while many of the best ETFs out there are tactical strategies and great trading vehicles, some of them are dirt-cheap, long-term buy-and-hold dynamos that can give investors what they need in retirement: diversification, protection and income.Many (though not all) ETFs are simple index funds - they track a rules-based benchmark of stocks, bonds or other investments. It's an inexpensive strategy because you're not paying managers to analyze and select stocks. And it works. In 2018, the majority of large-cap funds (64.5%) underperformed Standard & Poor's 500-stock index - the ninth consecutive year that most of them failed to beat the benchmark.Today, we'll look at seven of the best ETFs for retirement. This small group of funds covers several assets: stocks, bonds, preferred stock and real estate. Which ones you buy and how much you allocate to each ETF depend on your individual goal, be they wealth preservation, income generation or growth.

    Is an exchange-traded fund with lots of assets necessarily a desirable one? If every ETF ends up holding comparably sized portions of this petrochemicals multinational and that internet search company, the less opportunity there is for the investor to enjoy returns that beat the market. The SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) from State Street Global Advisors was created in 1993 – making it also the oldest ETF in the United States – and, as its name indicates, contains proportionate holdings of each of the issues listed on the Standard & Poor’s 500 index.

    Investors Have Failed to Time Currencies With Hedged ETFs

    Edwin Lefevre's classic tome, "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator," chronicles the career of Jesse Livermore, an infamous trader from the early 20th century. The book is often cited by traders and investors alike for the many lessons gleaned from Livermore's stock market trials--a mixed series of successes and failures. Livermore apparently never took his own advice.
