What Does ETF Mean?

www.moneysmartguides.com

I’ve talked in depth about mutual funds on this blog – case in point is the mutual fund basics post a few weeks ago. But what I haven’t talked to you about are exchange traded funds or ETFs. Exchange traded funds have grown in popularity over the past few years. This post will walk you through what they are and why you should consider investing in them.

Big Personal Finance eBook Giveaway Contest

www.modestmoney.com

I figured it’s been a while since I hosted a giveaway contest here at Modest Money. In the past I would give away cash or physical prizes like iPads. That stuff is cool and all, but it doesn’t really seem to fit in with a personal finance blog.

Canadian Natural Resource Ltd Setting Up For Fall

www.inthemoneystocks.com

The price of crude oil has been in a downtrend now for about 3 months. With this decline oil stocks such as Canadian Natural Resource Ltd (USA) (NYSE:CNQ) have also come down in price. In fact, this equity has fallen roughly 13% from its peak back on July 1. However, the thing that really interests me is the pattern that is being formed on the daily chart. It is a head and shoulders pattern which could see this stock fall all the way down to $33.75 area. While that would be a tremendous return, the most interesting aspect of this trade is the risk reward. Canadian Natural Resource Ltd (USA) (NYSE:CNQ) is hovering right around the neck line, so any close above the line and we stop out for a $0.50 loss. Compare that to a drop of almost $7.00 and you have yourself an amazing return for very minimal risk. Trade set ups like this one are what separates the profitable pro's from the money losing amateurs. So ask yourself which one do you want to be?

Term life insurance is a great way to set your mind at ease that your loved ones will be taken care of if you pass away. State Farm’s recent polling indicates that only 4 in 10 Americans buy life insurance after big life events, like children and homebuying, to cover their dependents’ payments in the event of their unexpected passing.
