- Vanguard's Bogle says unless you make fees a top priority, your retirement plan will suffer, and the financial “industry doesn't give a damn.” Highlights from the Bogleheads' annual meeting
- Cheap oil adds up to more bad news for gold investors. The ratio between the two commodities is at a 17-month high, signaling that gold is now relatively expensive. Inflation concerns fade into the background
- Overstating the Fed's bond-buying wind-down has become a financial media bandwagon that I refuse to ride. Let's not overlook that whopping $4.5 trillion portfolio that the Fed will now be managing from now till who-knows-when. It's a gross overstatement to call this a hawkish move
