The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Super Bowl Prediction Edition

My prediction? Indianapolis 38, Chicago 35. It’s going to be a scoring fest and come down to a final drive by Indianapolis. Check back on Monday to see how far off I was. Now, here’s some finance posts.

Available: Single Guy, No Money, $50000 In Debt, But Pretends To Be Well Off. Takers? What’s more important: financial appearance or financial reality? I know which one I’d choose. (@ my two dollars)

If You Are Young, Why Wouldn’t You Be 100% Stocks? If China calls in all of the US treasury securities they hold, I’d want every dime I had to be in the euro, not in stocks. And I’m young. Does that answer your question, chief? (@ my financial journey)

Priority: Paying Off Debt Or Investing? Guess what? There is no sure-fire answer for someone to give you because part of the answer is inside of yourself. (@ the sun’s financial diary)

    I post those very late on Sundays.

  3. Thanks for the highlight….yeah the US market could tank due to some catastrophic event, but I’m guessing those events are not that likely and well what if a majority of my stocks were international stocks.

    I’ll give you being 100% in stocks seems more risky and to be honest I think I should have a different allocation I just don’t understand why yet. Also risk isn’t necessarily all about possibly losing money its also about possibly not making as much money as you could

    Anyway so you’d rather be invested in the Euro than the US stock market for the odd chance that China gets upset with us and tries to collect on all the money its lent us? I don’t see that happening as China needs someone to buy all their crap and well we are their best customer.

    Anyway thanks again for the mention and the comment.
