To Trust or not to Trust – Do I need a Revocable trust? – Another great estate Planning Tip: LivingTrustEstatePic

  • Privacy
  • Avoids probate
  • Corporate law versus probate law
  • Easily changed
  • Can lead to inadvertent mistakes in Estate Planning
  • May dramatically help in higher probate cost states (Think CA and FL)

Trusts, once thought only for aristocrats have become much more mainstream. They are easy to set up and easy to change. Revocable trusts, the most common, are great planning tools. The revocable trust, while providing little creditor protection and virtually no federal estate tax benefits, in many cases is a great solution for organization and a way around a hefty probate cost state.

Commodities falling

7-31-15 Bloomberg Commodity Index

Not only did this broad-based commodity index take out the 2008/9 lows, but it dropped to a never seen before low !

Certainly could go lower. Hated by many – Zig when others Zag!

In the endeavor to find assets that are not frothy, a never seen before, all time low, MIGHT be one.

Never go all in of course — but does not look frothy!
