No Stopping Chinese Stocks

Posted by iBlog on August 23, 2007

Seems like nothing can cool Chinese investors’ ardor for local stocks. Despite market meltdowns in the rest of the world and moves by Beijing to dampen demand for equities, China’s stock markets are at a record high. On Aug. 22, China’s benchmark CSI 300 stock index blasted through the all-important 5000 level, shrugging off an interest-rate hike by the central government announced the previous day, to close up 78.98 points, to 5051.69. The index, which tracks the 300 most important companies listed in Shanghai and Shenzhen, has jumped 147% this year.

Money As In Value

Posted by iBlog on August 20, 2007

Money cannot be sought directly, money, like happiness, is an effect. It’s the result of a cause and the cause is valuable service. Keep money in its proper place, it’s a servant nothing more. It’s a tool with which we can live better, see more of the world. It’s the means to a happy, carefree retirement in later years. Too much emphasis on money reverses the whole picture, you then become the servant, and the money becomes the master…..

Be realistic about your financial goals. For as you reach them, you can then set higher goals. Trying to jump too far too soon can often result in confusion, tenseness and worry. Take your growth in sensible, logical steps, remembering that the big thing is that you know what you want and that you realize your rewards will match your service. That is, that you must devise ways and means of actually becoming the person who is worth the amount of money you have established for yourself. A person may be worth more than they’re getting, for a while, but the two will match up. They have to. In fact, unless a person is worth more than they’re now receiving, they cannot move ahead. They’re receiving all they’re worth.

THE IMAGES YOU HOLD IN YOUR MIND MOST OFTEN MATERIALIZE IN RESULTS IN YOUR LIFE.
