Contents from freedom 35 blog. (www.freedomthirtyfiveblog.com) This was one of the best months of the year in terms of investment gains.

AMZN stock shot up 13% that day. Hurray! Check out the stock market performance since August below. The gains are incredible for just ...

Contents from freedom 35 blog. (www.freedomthirtyfiveblog.com) Canada’s trade deficit rose to a disappointing $3.4 billion in August, one of the highest ever recorded. Economists had predicted $2.6 billion, lol. They were way off. Both imports and exports were down, which suggests the entire economy may be in trouble.

Contents from freedom 35 blog. (www.freedomthirtyfiveblog.com) Knowledge is not enough. It must also be applied. Good financial advice is easy to come by, but not always implemented effectively. The tips and suggestions on personal finance blogs are, for the most part, pretty generic. Unfortunately most people would read a few articles and quickly become bored of the topic because they don’t get anything meaningful out of them. Only personal finance enthusiasts are ...

Contents from freedom 35 blog. (www.freedomthirtyfiveblog.com) We are now 3 quarters into the year. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq both hit an all time high to close out September. Up here in Canada the S&P/TSX Composite grew by 3.7%. Gross domestic product (GDP) was essentially unchanged, at zero per cent growth in July compared with June, Statistics Canada said last week. I suspect that the slower start to Q3 is indicative ...

Contents from freedom 35 blog. (www.freedomthirtyfiveblog.com) Median Income Grows to $70,336 The results from last year’s national census about family incomes have been released. Below is a table showing how much we all made in 2015. Overall the median national income was $70,336. This means half of Canadians made more than this number, and the other half made less. Atlantic provinces and Quebec saw the lowest median incomes for some reason. There seems ...

Contents from freedom 35 blog. (www.freedomthirtyfiveblog.com) After the FED raised interest rates in the U.S., the Bank of Canada did the same. In July the central bank increased rates by 0.25%. This means the Prime lending rate at banks is now 0.25% more expensive for borrowers. What does this mean for Canadians in debt? It means we should reduce our debt balances to normalize our interest expenses and keep our debt load ...
