Fed Chairwoman Yellen's most important comment was not about Interest Rates. Reporters quickly latched onto 3 comments made by FOMC members about their opinion on Fed interest rates. Most reports used those comments in their articles claiming Yellen stated interest rates were going to rise this year or next year. This was not what Yellen said, nor was it the most important statement made by the Fed Chairwoman, in her first FOMC meeting statement for the press. Listen to Martha Stokes CMT as she explains what was the most important aspect of the speech. You will be surprised.

RECENTLY THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK DROPPED ITS LENDING RATE SO IT IS ACTUALLY A NEGATIVE LENDING RATE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? AND WHAT EFFECT, IF ANY, WILL IT HAVE ON THE EUROPEAN ECONOMY AND US HERE IN THE U-S. I ASKED MICHAEL CARR – OF THE PEAK PROFITS DOT-COM – TO EXPLAIN IT. HE GETS INTO THE PROBLEMS WITH THE REGULATION ON BANKS AND ITS CONTRADICTORY EFFECT ON THE FUTURE ECONOMY.
MIKE AND I WORKED WITH NEWSMAX DOT-COM TO PRODUCE AN ONLINE WEBINAR ON HIS PEAK PROFITS INVESTING SYSTEM WHICH USES HIS PATTERN RECOGNITION QUANT TRADING SYSTEM. AS WE CONTINUE OUR CONVERSATION, MIKE THINKS THE BIG BANKS HAVE BEEN PUNISHED TOO MUCH FOR THE FINANCIAL CRISIS.
SO I ASKED MIKE IF HE WOULD HAVE PREFERRED THE TARP MONEY WENT DIRECTLY TO HOME-OWNERS AND NOT THE BANKS TO GET INTO THE ECONOMY QUICKER. HE SAYS NO.
I HAVE A LITTLE DIFFERENT TAKE ON THAT LAST POINT. GRANTED, MANY HOME-OWNERS ARE NOT INNOCENT IN THE FINANCIAL MESS. STILL, MOST CITIZENS AND CONSUMERS WERE AT THE MERCY OF A FINANCIAL INDUSTRY THAT WAS CREATING COMPLEX INSTRUMENTS THAT WERE NOT BEING DISCLOSED AND NO ONE – NOT EVEN THE C-E-O’S OF THESE BIG BANKS – UNDERSTOOD. PLUS, THE BANKS HAVE HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY TO LOBBY AND PAY OFF POLITICIANS. HOWEVER, THAT SHOULD NOT BE AN EXCUSE FOR A SOCIETY THAT IS SO UN-INFORMED. STILL, WE HAVE CREATED A SYSTEM WHERE WE NEED THESE BANKS. MAYBE WE NEED A LITTLE CREATIVE DESTRUCTION ON THE BANKING SYSTEM TOO. BUT THAT COULD BE A BIG RISK. FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME YOUR THOUGHTS.
MORE WITH MIKE CARR IN MY NEXT SEGMENT. STAY INFORMED NOT INFLAMED.

Many sellers and businesses have taken back first and second mortgages on property they have sold. Often these "notes" as they are called, are sold to raise cash. Due to the time value of money these notes are sold at a discount, and some investors specialize in buying and selling such notes.
On this episode of Investor Zone Radio, we'll talk about discount mortgages so you can see if Discount Mortgages might be something you might want to add to your real estate investing portfolio. We'll also update you on the latest from the "dude ranch," aka The SC Rehab, and our upcoming inaugural episode of our "Different Drummer Real Estate Investing" podcast.
