Topic: Investing Roundtable from Economic Indicators, Diversification, and Leverage

Guest: Denver Nowicz, President – Wealth For Life

We discuss the popular economic indicators you read and hear about in business news, what are they, how they affect the economy, and what you should pay attention to.

The list includes – The Fed, Money Supply, Inflation, Housing, Inventory, market cycles, Volatility and more.

Diversification, is it really as good as the business media claims? Why the top investors do not diversify and choose to concentrate their holdings including the Oracle of Omaha, and his partner Charlie Munger are two of the most outspoken critics.

Leverage from good (OPM) to bad (debt), and what is the difference. Leverage defined in the financial sense, and how to use it properly. The idea is to borrow at a low rate, earn a higher rate of return and make $ off the spread (like a bank).
