Forex Trading: The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating and informing savers & investors. When you traveled to other countries you noticed that not all countries use the same currency. If you visited a particular country 5 years ago, and now plan to go back, you'll notice the exchange rate is not the same as it was 5 years ago. Who decides those rates? Is there an opportunity to buy the currency in advance and thus hedge the price of that currency?
As a casual tourist you may not be sensitive to a 5 or 10% change in the currency value. But what if your company is buying goods produced in those other countries? Then a 5% increase on a $1 million purchase makes a big difference. You certainly would find a way to hedge that currency. Is there an investment opportunity buying and selling various currencies? Are the currency markets liquid enough to be able to exit quickly? What financial instruments could you use? Can you do these transactions through your stock broker?
We will have Stanley Urban as our special guest to discuss Forex Trading. Stan Urban didn't get involved in Forex trading as a hobby or an investment – he had no choice. He's been a financial executive in the countries we now know as New Europe for 8 years before the Euro was even introduced! The vast majority of purchases made by the companies he has worked were in foreign currencies. How did he hedge those transactions? Could you use those transactions as an investment opportunity? What's his perspective on the future of the Euro?

Update on Gold: The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating and informing savers & investors. If you've been monitoring the equities markets and precious metals prices you noticed them moving in opposite directions for the last 18 months. Will this continue? Is gold a good hedge against a drop in equities?
In a recent show I shared my concern that some major market players may want to depress the price of precious metals. On the other hand the companies selling gold and silver coins seem to be spending a lot on advertising. They even hire celebrities to make you feel more comfortable. Is that because of the great past performance for precious metal, or an indicator of the opportunity for future appreciation?
We will have Jack A. Bass as our special guest to update us on Gold. He is one of Canada's top ranked economists and the author of "The Gold Investor's Handbook". Jack Bass is also the author of "The Apprentice Millionaire Portfolio" so we will use this opportunity to get his views on the economy, and the prospects for other investments. Did you know that many of the Gold and Silver exploration companies are registered in Canada? Is it just a coincidence that our guest is Canadian?
I suspect many of our past guests will be listening to see what Jack Bass has to say about Gold & other precious metals. Has the market turned ... or are we now in a long-term bear market? What's the best way to invest in Gold?

Non-bank Financing - Creating your own Investment The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, and educating and informing investors. As part of our series on Alternative Investments we'll cover another strategy to avoid following the crowd investing in the financial markets. I hear many investors say they currently invest in equities, especially US equities, since returns in fixed income are low and they’re worried about the risk of capital loss as interest rates rise. In other words they're looking for the cleanest shirt in the dirty clothes hamper !
As these investors start to take profits on those equity investments, they wonder where they should invest that money. In this show we'll propose a radical alternative – Creating your own Investment ! Sound intriguing? You're probably wondering how you can do that? Do you need a securities license? How much could you earn on this DIY investment? Would it be riskier than US equities?
It will be Memorial Day in the US, so we'll also take a few minutes to discuss the background of that Holiday.
For this Memorial Day tribute and the answers to these and other questions you'll come up with during the weekend – just gather the family if they have the day off, and each get a cup of coffee, tea, or glass of wine and join in the conversation …
