Seems like stock market is better than I expected.I planned to pick up more shares, and I guess that I will have to wait now.
The interest rate is up now. I know it will be a surpriseto someone. Like I always adovacate, lock a reasonable rateand focus on more important part of the life.
Read an article from a "professional" on the wall Streetpredicting that the interest will be lower for another0.25% to 0.5%. Personally I don't agree. Well, if he can predict, then we don't have so much crisis.
But it did have an interesting point about the fixed incomeinvestors. They will pick up the bonds to get a safe 2% to 3%returns. But once the inflation is over 2.5%, or the unemploymentrate is less than 6.5%, those fund managers can sell the bonds faster than anybody else. And we will see that one day the interestrate will go up 0.375% to 0.5%.
