Stock Option Screener

06/01/2007

Investing can be pretty scary. There’s so much to learn, and frankly, losing your shirt is not an option many of us would consider to be a good thing, right? If you are thinking about entering the stock market a stock option screener can give you a place to start making sound decisions to realize your profit goals. PowerOptions helps you find, compare, analyze and make money on stock option trading. You can get a 14 day free trial, an online user guide, toll-free customer support and a performance guarantee. I’ve never understood how stock trading actually works, so now I can correct my ignorance.

Gold

05/29/2007

This neat thing is an investment opportunity. One thing that holds it’s value is gold, and unlike stocks, which can fall dramatically, and wipe out your savings, the precious metal tends to grow in value slowly and steadily. You don’t need a small fortune to get started investing, either. You can buy gold coins in various denominations, so you can spend what you can afford, and sell later and re-invest. Whether you are interested in collecting the coins as a hobby, or solely for their monetary value, it’s easy to get started. Remember, coins have a currency value. If there isn’t a marked currency value, then what you have is classified as an ingot.

Student Loan Consolidation

05/18/2007

Here’s another neat thing for your pocketbook. Schooling is expensive, and often people find themselves with a myriad of student loans once they graduate. With today’s job market, it can be difficult to find a position in your field right away, and then you are looking at default. It’s a double whammy, because employers frequently run a credit check before they offer you a position. It’s a catch-22. Student loan consolidation can be a viable way to reduce your payments and maintain your credit. If you have debt, figuring out a way to pay it off while managing to have enough money left to eat is one of the neatest things you can do for yourself.

More Money Origami

Mint Credit Card

02/19/2007

This credit card is neat, but not for the reasons you probably think. Sure, it’s got 0% interest until December 2007, but that’s not what caught my eye. The MINT credit card was introduced in 2003, and qualifies as a neat thing because of the shape. For the first time in 37 years of UK credit cards, the shape is not rectangular. It looks like this:

Mint also offers gift cards in this shape, which are pre-paid credit cards and can be used almost anywhere. Now, if you prefer plain credit cards, they have those, too. But with a neat shape like this, why not carry something fun?

High Yield Savings Accounts

01/29/2007

Being financially savvy is important in today’s economy. Job security is a thing of the past, and downsizing can happen to just about anyone it seems. Except me: it’s too dag-gone hard to replace a mother of 8 with a cheaper overseas counterpart.

It’s important to think make sound financial choices. A nest egg can make the difference between managing to keep afloat and immediate disaster when life hands you a nasty little surprise. One way to do that is to start a high yield savings accounts now, before you need it. You can find information on this and other types of accounts at emoneycentral. They have info on Certificates of Deposit and Money Market accounts, too. A neat thing you can do there is search for high interest rates at community banks and credit unions in your state. That way you’re money will be close by should you need it.
