SandnSea: It's OK, It Really Is
It's absolutely insane to think that a few dollars spent could turn into million and billions of dollars. That's just crazy. To wait years for a promise, to communicate with faces you've never seen, and to hang on every word a so called Guru speaks.

To take time away from family and friends to check your phone. Or to wake in the middle of the night to see if the elusive 800 number has been released. Who does that?

And yet, for those of us who believe in something larger and greater than ourselves and, those of us who know miracles still happen, we continue. If at the end of the day these hopes and dreams have gotten us through a hard day, or a friendly text from an unseen chat member has lifted our spirits, that's ok too.

I feel bad for the naysayers who don't have the gift of belief

Home mortgages and corporate borrowing just got a little more expensive this week, courtesy of central banks in Europe and Japan.
While Wall Street is focused on whether the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates or not, rising yields in the long end of the U.S. bond market in recent sessions have been directly related to the negative yield and bond-buying policies of both the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan.

Neither institution has taken any new action, but that is the point. This is a bond market that has become fairly complacent that new and bigger central bank easing programs will keep supplying the world with easy money at super-low rates.

Quantitative easing, used by central banks around the world, is the purchase of securities in an effort to drive investors into other riskier securities and keep rates low.
