  2. lol please say "Older" Not OLD person. You can really offend people, because people like my mom, who is almost 70, don't consider themselves OLD. Good video though, just adding my 2 cents.

  3. Yo dude for real you made everything as clear as water and you are right, we are young people just getting into the investing bussines. I really appreciate this video, thanks a lot.

  4. What's with the sunglasses? There are dozens of stock guys saying not to buy bonds. Hmmm, I wonder why??? Is it because 1) if people buy bonds no one will listen to your stock videos? or 2) if people get out of stocks and into bonds the stock market will fall???

  5. Iā€™m thinking 20 percent of my total portfolio in bonds. 3 equal parts: vanguard total bond fund, intermediate term fund, intermediate term treasury fund. Anyone?

  6. They say when the interest is low, bonds goes up and when interest is high, bonds go down;
    so which is better for an investor when interest is low or high? i'm new in bonds.

  7. This is a noble attempt at describing bonds. A couple of things you should consider on future presentations. Bonds are not as liquid as stocks. Also, you need a broker to trade bonds and the fees are included in the price so it takes a lot of due diligence to make sure you are paying a fair price for the bond. There is no such thing as risk free or guaranteed. I think you made it clear as you stated some bonds are low risk. Stop saying bonds have guaranteed yields, etc… There are index based bonds like US Treasury TIPS that adjust for inflation in order to preserve wealth. Lastly, because bonds are not as liquid as stocks you can get a bond ETF which will provide the liquidity that you expect and the expense ratios are typically very low – but of course due diligence is a must.

    Unless purchasing government bonds most people need to stay away from directly purchasing their own bonds and rather invest through funds or ETFs. There is a lot of good info here but you should do a follow up and cover some of the details you left out.

  8. Both the USA and Venezuela guarantee their government bonds. So no, Venezuela's bonds are guaranteed exactly the same as Canada, UK and the USA. But the assumption is, the USA can't default, ever. And it may well not default, in his lifetime. Or could it before a nuclear world war? Personally he should prefer one over the other. And the worser case may happen any moment.
    And if there was a nuclear war look on the bright side. You will no longer need to worry about your bond holdings.

  9. I think it's funny that he thinks it funny when he experienced a tongue twister (04:27 minutes) for the first time. But not because it was the first time. But because he implies his self image tells him that it's impossible, in his case. Only in America. Ha Ha….PS: It's not weird. It happens to everyone. Eventually. But the good news is, it goes away the older you get.

  10. indian banks offer a minimum of 7% interest…n more dan 8% if you do a fixed deposit…šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚

  11. You make it sounds as if the united states treasury (which is 21 trillion in debt) is not going to have any issues with paying you back.
