The Power of Compounding

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘it’s never too early to start saving’? One of the most important reasons why this statement rings true, in my humble opinion, is the power of compounding.

Albert Einstein once described compound interest as the greatest invention of mankind.

Major US stock markets were flat through March, an accomplishment since they rebounded from a five percent correction in January. Overall, international markets were weaker with emerging markets performing the poorest.

What are Closed-End Funds and Why We Invest In Them

Bargain Hunting is a term everyone is familiar with. Why? Probably because everyone likes taking advantage of a deal, especially a deal of something that you were looking to purchase anyways. If you save a dollar on a purchase then you have an extra dollar to buy something else or perhaps even save.
