ETFs BEATING THE S&P 500: WHAT EVERY INVESTOR SHOULD KNOW

January 22, 2022

When you invest you want to make as much return as you can. It should be noted that winners in the market are made by making decisions which make you closer to your investment goal. Sometimes, that even means going in the opposite direction.

If you are looking for ETFs to give your portfolio a boost then don’t look further. An ETF is a diversified portfolio of shares. Just see it as a basket of shares of several companies packaged together. The plus point? You don’t have to research the stocks and you don’t have to actively maintain your portfolio. Because you don’t manage your portfolio yourself you pay a small fee to the manager of the ETF.

New year is just around the corner– 2022 will be a year where there will be some major planetary shifts. The slow moving planets (Saturn who moves from one to another sign each 2.5 year and Jupiter who moves to another sign each year) will enter new zodiac signs.

From there on, Saturn will go in retrograde motion to Capricorn till January 2023. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, prosperity and growth, will move to its own sign Pisces in April 2022 and will stay there for a year.

Another significant planetary movement is the North, Node Rahu and South Node Ketu changing signs in March 2022. Rahu and Ketu change signs every 1.5 year and are 180 degrees apart and move backwards. Now Rahu and Ketu are in Taurus and Scorpio and from March 2022 Rahu will enter Aries and Ketu Libra.

CRYPTOCURRENCIES: A BLESSING OR A THREAT?

December 4, 2021

In 2008, a programmer or a group under the pseudonym ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ introduced a new electronic money system named Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a decentralized system that allows users to use the internet to perform transactions without relying on authorities or financial institutions. By doing so, Bitcoin challenges the most sacred of government monopolies. The notion of sovereignty is being pulled away from governments in ‘favor’ of individuals.

Cryptocurrency backers hope to create a world where money is completely disconnected from politics and not constrained by borders. After Bitcoin was introduced slowly other cryptocurrencies were introduced. Bitcoin is mainly used as a form of payment and has ‘limitations’ when it comes to upscaling. Therefore an alternative to Bitcoin was created, namely altcoins which are mostly funded by investors and have an unlimited potential. Besides bitcoin and altcoins there are also stable coins. The name itself suggests that it’s a stable asset whose price is pegged to fiat currency such as the Euro and dollar or to exchange-traded commodities such as silver and gold. Because they are tied to a legal asset they are not volatile.

FINANCIAL FREEDOM: FOLLOW OUR EXPERTS GAME CHANGING TIPS

Most people think being rich is synonymous with flaunting your wealth on social media. Expensive watches, bags and even new cars are exposed everyday. Unfortunately, social media is an illusion, which means that everything that sparkles is not gold.

You may be one of those people looking at your favourite influencers profiles and thinking: I wish I was ‘rich’ or this ‘successful’! While you wish you were as ‘rich’ as them, nothing says they attained financial freedom. They might spend their last penny on a bag trying to meet ends at the end of the month and not save or invest anything.

Isn’t this more important? To attain financial freedom so you can live a comfortable life– make money work for you instead of working harder to gain more money.

Financial freedom is attainable for anyone and you don’t need sums of money for it. What you need to do is to make money for yourself. Being rich doesn’t mean you have millions in your bank account. It basically means that you are able to lead a comfortable life with the standard of living that fits you. And, attaining that freedom is a long road. It’s likely something you cannot achieve in 5 years because it takes time and comes down to dealing consciously with your money and investing for the long term.

ASTRO COUTURE: AN INTRODUCTION TO SIDEREAL ASTROLOGY

November 23, 2021

Have you ever heard of sidereal astrology? When we read a magazine, newspaper or any other article about astrology, we know that the horoscopes are based on the tropical system – a system prevalent in the West and not sidereal astrology which is used by ancient cultures like Mayans, Egyptians and Vedic (Indian).

Both systems are true but the sidereal system is based on the current position of the constellations. This means that there is a 24 degree gap between the tropical and sidereal system and that your ascendant (the rising sign that was in the sky at the time of birth), sun, moon and even the positions of other planets differ from that in tropical.
