I previously did not think it would, until recently President Correa vowed that Ecuador would continue to use  the US dollar. Lesson one of our Multi Currency Investing course points out that a general rule of currency investing is to expect a currency to devalue (or in this case change) soon after the responsible government swears that it will not .   See more about our Multi Currency Investing Course Perhaps.

loss. Insurance is defined as the equitable transfer of the risk of a loss, from one entity to another, in exchange for payment. An insurer is a company selling the insurance; an insured or policyholder is the person or entity buying the insurance policy. The insurance rate is a factor used to determine the amount to be charged for a certain amount of insurance coverage, called the premium .

Stock futures rise sharply, point to rebound - Investing News ...
NEW YORK, Jul. 22, 2010 (AP Online delivered by Newstex) -- Stocks were set for a strong rebound Thursday after another strong batch of earnings and some encouraging signs of growth in Europe. Futures rose sharply. Investors are largely writing off a jump in weekly jobless claims that might have been skewed by seasonal factors. Instead they are focused on earnings from a broad range of companies that demonstrate businesses are not seeing a slowdown in the recovery that economic data would otherwise indicate. European markets rose after a report showed unexpected growth in the 16-nation group that uses the euro. In recent months, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Expatriate Your Wallet
If everything you own is held in your own name in your own country, then you are not merely exposed, you are vulnerable absolutely, to whatever decisions the government might make about how you should behave and who gets the wealth you�ve earned. Tomorrow's new government measure, which might land out of the blue, could be a law that affects everyone, or it could be a rule devised to deal with people like you. Or, it could be an administrative action aimed at you alone. In any case, with all your assets at home, you'd find out how the lobster feels when his trap is being hauled out of the water. Nothing he can do about it. market trends, news research and surveys resources
Finding Hidden Gems in Diversified Industrials
Economic cycles usually play out according to a loosely defined sequential cadence. The depth and duration of each cycle differ considerably over decades, but the sequence of when segments of the domestic economy (loosely defined as consumption, production, and investment) progress through each phase of the cycle is relatively consistent. As we digest second-quarter earnings and study the macro indicators, it's quite apparent that the production-centric section of economy, while still firmly in rebound mode, is bumping up against some headwinds, and that investment-centric names are just starting to heat up. The ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Our country faces its most serious economic crisis since the great depression. Working families, who saw their incomes decline by $2,000 in the economic "expansion" from 2000 to 2007, now face even deeper income losses. Retirement savings accounts have lost $2 trillion.

With credit markets nearly frozen, businesses large and small cannot access the credit they need to meet payroll and create jobs.

What are some good "American Funds" to invest into a ROTH IRAs for ...
I am partially in agreement with what the 1st responder stated about fund load at American Funds. But in the case of American Funds that load is counter balanced by their very good track record and their very low expense ratios, much lower than many no load funds. So lets get down to brass tacks. What are some good ones? The only way we can judge is based on past performance and based on risk. Future performance may not equal past performance so there is some risk that the criteria may be invalid. The same applies to risk. You do want to have a diversified portfolio. One option to consider is the Target Date 2035 ...
