  1. Nothing new here, just a reminder. Sure it irks me that my accounts are down but messing with them is ill advised. “The best policy for portfolio management is one of benign neglect,” said Christine Benz, director of personal finance at Morningstar. “Your portfolio is like a bar of soap — the more you handle it, the smaller it gets.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/how-to-lose-a-lot-of-money-in-the-stock-market/2018/03/30/6d6bb52c-32c9-11e8-8abc-22a366b72f2d_story.html?utm_term=.3fb2600f899f
  2. Where the 403b /457 fits in all this talk no one knows yet Congress is looking for ways to raise revenue as part of a tax overhaul plan, and one of the methods reportedly under consideration is to curtail how much pretax money workers can contribute to their 401(k) and similar accounts. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/what-to-know-about-401k-plans-amid-talk-of-tax-change/2017/10/23/49593130-b850-11e7-9b93-b97043e57a22_story.html?utm_term=.5cc2295393b2
  3. Sometime back in the 1990s my financial adviser and I were discussing an investment in the Fidelity Contrafund, a high-performing mutual fund helmed then — and still — by the legendary Will Danoff.I can’t recall exactly, but I expressed some misgivings about the fund’s fees.“You’re buying Will Danoff,” my financial adviser said. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/your-mutual-fund-manager-just-doesnt-matter-much-anymore/2017/08/07/f3cda63a-7b9e-11e7-83c7-5bd5460f0d7e_story.html?utm_term=.f567fc803fb8
  4. Perhaps you’re a good money manager and you taught your children well. Or maybe you struggle royally with your finances and haven’t passed on good habits. Either way, we parents of young adults tend to think that when our children turn 18, our job is nearly done. They hit 21, and we’re like, “It’s party time.” After that point, you might think that if they make a money mistake, it’s on them, right? Wrong. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/get-there/hey-parents--youre-not-done-when-your-millennial-turns-21/2017/05/04/b955788e-2f90-11e7-8674-437ddb6e813e_story.html?utm_term=.6245894c8a60

  6. It is a simple question, but many investors are not sure about it. New changes in law (the fiduciary standard) and technology (robo-advisers) have added layers of complication to the answer. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/get-there/do-you-need-a-financial-adviser/2016/11/22/82258064-b003-11e6-8616-52b15787add0_story.html
  7. According to provocative new research from Fed economists, there might be a simple explanation for the slow growth — and there might not have been much policymakers could have done about it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/10/07/theres-a-devastatingly-simple-explanation-for-americas-economic-mess/
  8. The klaxon horns have sounded, and it’s all hands on deck! The British “leave” vote — Brexit in financial medialand speak — has forced us all once again to rouse ourselves from our media-induced slumber and get busy getting busy. Pull on your big-boy pants, and sell this, buy that! Hedge, hedge, hedge! *Sigh* https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/get-there/brexit-this-is-not-a-drill/2016/06/24/d3c1f72a-3a21-11e6-8f7c-d4c723a2becb_story.html
  9. ........ humans tend to make things much more complicated than they need to be. Complexity, confusion, costs and lack of clarity — no wonder so many people are so unsatisfied with their portfolios’ performance. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/get-there/how-you-the-amateur-investor-can-beat-the-pros/2015/11/06/2c1daed0-8430-11e5-8ba6-cec48b74b2a7_story.html
