Central banks move into gold and out of dollars

Maybe investors are in love with the U.S. stock market--but global central banks are as enthusiastic about the U.S. Dollar. In the first quarter gold purchases by global central banks were the highest in six years. The move into gold seems to come from a desire to diversify out of gold and not from any […]

Adding more Utilities, cutting Emerging Markets in ETF Portfolio

Now that the Federal Reserve has decided to slow the pace of its interest rate increases in 2019--perhaps ultimately all the way to one or none--I think it's time to up the utilities exposure in my Perfect 5 ETF Portfolio.

In the dot plot released after that meeting, the Fed also signaled its intention--pending news, of course--of raising […]
