          • Relationships between investment sectors?

            What are relationships between investment sectors - thinking just domestically, what are the relationships between stocks, bonds, money markets, commodities, etc.? Are there marked tendencies that when one is doing well, another won't be? Do they behave in sequence in any way?

            • Term life or whole life?

              I consider myself the "average Joe" - I want to make sure I get the basic personal finance more right than wrong.

                • More on Advice for Investments

                  One of your commenters pointed out that there is a time when having an Edward Jones man...
                  And that's when the market is turning down. He can before you can see that we are in a down market and move you to a more conservative investment.
                  Condemning the use of a financial advisor is a big deal. You are right I'm sure, but it is a big deal for us old guys.

                        • Cost Averaging and Rebalancing In Investing

                          I think treatment of these topics is a "must" when giving advice to an average Joe investor and these topics would really lend themselves to this video series. For cost averaging consider a simple example of how the strategy works arithmetically and why it's beneficial. This would enlighten a lot or people. For rebalancing talk about maintaining risk levels and the effect of automatically buying low, selling high.
