Good morning.
30-year mortgage rates give a quick snapshot in terms of how much it costs to buy a house.  When rates soared last year to nearly 7 percent, sales slowed.  So did mortgage refinancing.  But when rates came down to 6.5 percent, the market opened up a bit.
Whether or not today’s mortgage rates are high depends on your point of view.  They’re quite high if you’re looking over the past decade.  But if you’re looking at the past 80 years, they’re still on the low side.
Those looking to bet on housing-related trades should be cautious as long as rates are near or over 7 percent… and get increasingly bullish when getting to 6 percent or lower.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Stay in ShapeGood morning.
The currency market is usually exciting only when traders leveraging minute moves in currency pairs end up suffering a massive blowup.  But we’re seeing a number of currency trends emerge that could clue in investors for the best returns going forward.
First, the US dollar has been on a strengthening trend for some time.  That’s bad news for the US economy, as it means a higher price for its goods overseas relative to the local currency.  And the Russian ruble is continuing its rally, now hitting a 7-year high.  Demand is soaring as European buyers of Russian natural gas have to make payments in rubles.
For investors, that suggests the US may slow compared to Europe.  And that Russia, despite what the latest war headlines say, will continue to play strongly on the global stage despite the relative size of its economy.

What can you do when you’re stuck at home?… The home biz is booming…  A time to invest in ‘hard assets‘… Homebuying is on the rise… Mortgage rates are near all-time lows…  inside Lowe's

When you’re mostly stuck at home with nothing else to do…

Why not finally tackle that home-improvement project that you’ve put off for days, months, or even years?

Sure, honey, I’ll get right on fixing that broken light…

Yup, let’s just redo the basement floor; too…

Of course, I can paint that entire room by myself…

As we’ve written over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has widely exposed the existing problems and issues of many industries — as well as those of our government…
And a global economic shutdown also accelerated virus-proof, recession-proof persistent trends that were already in place, too — like online ordering and cloud-based software companies that don’t totally rely on the “physical” world or “old economy” to do business.
For instance doesn’t e-commerce giant Amazon (AMZN) feel basically like a utility?  And at the same time, it’s one of the few big companies hiring hourly workers to keep up with demand.  {No résumé required for $15 per hour.}
Fellow tech giants Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOGL) have finally unveiled their COVID-19 tracking technology.  Call it “contact tracing” in the cloud.  But things are still happening in the “real world,” too.  On the ground, oil demand is picking back up.  In the air, folks are starting to buy airline tickets again.  And in our homes, all along the way, a lot of people are looking around their own properties and saying, “Let’s do that.”
Based on the latest earnings reports this week from the two leading home-improvement retailers in the U.S. — Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) — business is booming…

Home Depot and Lowe’s each posted quarterly numbers that indicate strong demand for their services…

My most surprising lesson in business AND Network Marketing?

Was when I found out about the four colour personalities.  I didn’t know.  I thought all personalities thought similarly… but they don’t.

This explained a lot of my initial frustration with prospects.  We don’t know that 3 out of 4 prospects think and make decisions differently than we do!

And it goes further

Knowing which colour personality our prospects are is very important, as well as how they see us.  We may think we are a certain colour personality but prospects could see us differently.

Want a quick 5-question test that shows how prospects see us?  It only takes one minute.  Here is the link:                                                     https://bigalbooks.com/color-quiz

Just remember this: “Whoever has the best story … wins!”
