Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of June 16th, 2013


Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesU.S. market participants continued to fret about Federal Reserve policy, debating when policymakers would dial down the rate of asset purchases and what that would mean for the economy and long-term interest rates. The market volatility surrounding the Fed’s decision is somewhat puzzling.

Recall that the Fed has a qualitative threshold for the asset purchase program: “substantial improvement” in labor market conditions. That phrase means different things to different Fed officials. The total level of Fed purchases is what matters, not the monthly pace. There was no appreciable increase in long-term interest rates when QE1 and QE2 ended. QE3 differs in that it is open-ended. We don’t know exactly when it will end and what the total amount of purchases will be. So, the total amount of Fed purchases is unclear. «Read the rest of this article»

Kris Wolfe: Taking the “Step” out of Parenting


Wolfe FamilyClarksville, TN – I respect step-parents. They are really special people. I was divorced in 2005 and I remarried in 2010.

My husband stepped onto the scene when my boys were 3 and 6 years old. My ex-husband remarried last year to a woman with children.

So basically, 3 out of 4 of the adults that my children live with are a step-parent to someone.

I am the oddball out. I don’t know what it’s like to raise a child that is not from my DNA. «Read the rest of this article»

What’s On Your Mind (Part II)


Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Satan didn’t try to force Eve into disobeying God. He simply maneuvered her into thinking about it. He suggested the benefits she should consider.  Eve thought about them and then looked at the forbidden fruit with new interest.  It looked good, but it always looked good. The fruit hadn’t changed.  Only Eve’s thoughts had changed. Satan strategy worked then and it is still working now.

Evil forces have skillfully gotten us to believe we aren’t responsible for our thoughts. Educators and teachers have indirectly taught that man is responsible only for what he does with thoughts that come to him. «Read the rest of this article»
