The Fed announced earlier this week that the interest rate will remain unchanged even considering the fact that inflation ration should go around 4-5%. The economic conditions are that bad that the Fed prefers to have a higher inflation than slowing down the economy again. We all hope that the price of oil will continue to sink and therefore, slow down the inflation.

Here are the good read for this week:

Canadian Capitalist is wondering if we should add REIT or not to our portfolio. He brings different point of view from well known investors in the industry.

The Personal Fianncier is keeping her cool and work on a strategy to invest in a bear market. I definitely think it is a wonderful time to invest in the market. She offers us a good investment strategy considering our market situation.

The Digerati Life is writing down a list of transportation alternatives due to the high price of gas. Since she is living in the “Hummer Country” (read California), she probably witnesses a lot of change these days!

Money Ning is wondering if he should buy an investment property considering the market in the US. I would buy one for sure if I had liquidity!

Four Pillars makes a great comparison between our TFSA and the US Roth IRA. A great read if you are wondering what is going on in other countries. Then again, our system is more flexible than the US one :-D. However, it only starts next year.
