The Trillion Dollar Derivatives Time Bomb

Hello there!  It's your business desk team and we hope you have a great weekend.  Today, we would like to let you in on some very breaking news that is presently going on on Wall Street.  News that is extremely important for you to be aware of.
To learn more, please read on.
Happy weekend.
Your business desk team
 
 
The Trillion Dollar Derivatives Time Bomb
 

                        We will drop the bomb on Wall Street
 
                             There is an unstable ticking time bomb woven deep within the fabric of the American Economy,
 
                        and it's going to go off very soon, when it does, the already struggling American economy will be
 
                        catastrophically overwhelmed. Major Banks and investment firms once believed to be "too large to go under" will be left in ruins. As a result, bonds will fail. Corporate bankruptcies will rise to unprecedented heights. The Dow Jones will tumble down under 5000. The previously floundering Greenback will find its new home next to the relics of the French Franc and German Mark.
 
                          
 
                           As these major investments fall away, a tiny cluster of seemingly obscure investments will take ascent.  Taking refuge in these investments immediately will ENSURE your financial future as the hysteria takes grip of the populace, and the American economy is undone.
 
 
 
                        The Trillion Dollar Derivatives
 
                        Time Bomb
 
                          
 
                           Layered deep within the confines of the real economy... there is a subterranean economy, where the world's financial power brokers carry on clandestine transactions in the trillions.
 
 
 
                          Transactions that are hidden well away from the mainstream media. You will rarely read about them in the Financial Times, let alone see them on any 24 hour news channels, and yet they have a very real affect on your every investment; Bonds, mutual funds, your real estate, and especially your stocks.
 
 
 
                           This financial assembly acquits to an Ocean current, invisible to the naked eye, these currents affect everything from climate to sustenance for billions of creatures. They both also share a very real frailty, they are subject to forces they have no control over.
 
 
 
                           Periodically something goes wrong. A massive terrorist attack or a bank goes under, which uncovers the apocalyptic powers these institutions carry. The world spectator their effects on Black Monday, in 1987. Also in 1997 when the Asian markets were struck down, and once more in 1998 with the LTCM hedge fund debacle. But these were just the first salvos to the devastation that is to come.
 
 
 
                           A confluence of events is building up, when they reach boiling point the invisible currents will still. When they do, we may well be witness to the largest financial meltdown since the Great Depression, and our economy may never recover.
 
 
 
                           Now is the time to prepare yourself for the inevitable, to position yourself to garner the benefits of astronomical profits by investing in a tiny cluster of little known investments which will take a meteoric rise when practically all else falls by the wayside.
 
 
 
                           This is not simply an empty declaration; a select group of informed private investors have already taken advantage of these investment techniques, taking gains of 797% and up to 1,797%. These investments will be revealed to you in a moment, and why I fully expect equivalent opportunities this year as well. But at this time I would like to address the pink elephant in the room, a vexing development that has occurred in the worlds financial markets in our lifetime. It is an issue that could cause horrendous financial ripples, and one for which investors by and large are inadequately prepared for...

Question from Danielle Ruesseau:  Donna, is there really a demand for language translation services these days and how popular is English as a spoken language?

I am out of time for this week but before I leave you, here is my tip of the week.
The next time you go to choose a hosting company, make sure that they provide you with round the clock support.  I have found that there are several hosting companies out there that give the appearance that they offer round the clock support but in essence they do not.  They do not have phone support round the clock and if you wish to reach them via email if your email is not working or their server is down, then you are in big trouble.
 
I'm Donna J. Jodhan wishing you a terrific day and week ahead.
I hope that everyone is having a great week thus far and I thank all of you who have taken the time to send us your feedback.
My e-bag this week is really heavy so without much delay, I will get to work.

The Most Reliable, Certain, Steady, Trustworthy and Loyal Investment being Exposed

Hello there and a happy weekend to you.  We the business desk team would like to give you a bit of a boost this weekend.
Today, we are going to help you discover an investment that is reliable, loyal, and trust worthy among other things.  This type of investment is very hard to discover if you do not know what you are looking for.  Yes, these types of investments really do exist and we invite you to have a read.
From the business desk, we wish you a great weekend.
 
 
The Most Reliable, Certain, Steady, Trustworthy and Loyal Investment being Exposed
 

so you want to Retire... or you're already Retired?
So what happens to your portfolio if the Market continues to tank for the next couple years?
Read on My Friends to find out how you can Collect Safely WITHOUT Buying Stocks, or Options...
 
Dear Gryphon Financial Reader,
 
Before I continue further, let's get something out in the open. This newsletter does not guarantee or make any claim that you will be "doubling your money" or that you will make "triple digit gains" overnight.
 

But here's the good news. I am able to show you a way of investing your hard earned money where it can mature SECURELY and STEADILY... no matter what the market does... Whether it goes Up or Down for months or years! IT DOESN'T MATTER!!
 

Allow me to introduce you to a new investment newsletter service that is proven to be more valuable in this market than any other out there.
 
Our latest recommendations from this service have prized 12% and 17% over the last five weeks... while stocks have gotten demolished!
 
And you should also know that these recommendations did NOT require playing stocks short or buying them at all... it also didn't entail buying currencies,..options...commodities... or government bonds either!
 
Hope you're not worried, because this is just as easy as buying Stocks or Options I assure you.
 
This venture offers shelter and great profits. What could be better right now? This method can give you your peace of mind back...you can sit back and relax knowing your money is safe...without having to worry about what the markets are doing...How's that sound?
 
One of the Safest Ways to Invest Right Now
This is the best alternative to stocks and the market that will enable your portfolio's growth, adding to it double-digit profits, year after year...without risk, without dealing with a dormant bear market.
 
The plan, well it's called the, "Corporate PAYBACK System". It is the only way for you to gain 10% - 50% (or maybe even more!) in a brief time period. I can't think of a better time for you to move your money into a safer and more consistent venture then right now!
 
Allow me to explain ...
 
The Most Reliable, Certain, Steady, Trustworthy and Loyal Investment being Exposed
Just mull over a small amount of the various advantages of this approach:
 
Obtain Compensation Even during a Catastrophe - Market lunges... terrorist attack... pathetic financial news... reduced earnings... you still get compensated!
Returns AND Security - Receive profit s that surpass the stock market, with limited danger and practically no instability

Escape From the Most Treacherous Market Of Our Lifetime
My mind just can't recall a more challenging and problematical market than the one we are encountering on a daily basis. Anyone can profit from a bull market, No? But this is extremely difficult to deal with. Our markets fluctuate so uncontrollably it is almost impossible to avoid the exploitation, the emotional swings, the innuendoes and the government involvement...no one is safe!
 
So...with all that said I am absolutely elated to be introducing you to system you can use that will afford you the same or better profits that stocks do, but without all the volatility and the risk!
 
QUESTION #1
Retirement... Are You Ready? This may be your last window of Opportunity to secure your FUTURE
If you're like me, within a decade of retiring - or you're retired already - do you think you can risk being a victim of today's market? The system I am speaking about can get you those market returns you so desire...but you won't have to keep running to your computer every time the market plummets. You will be able to rest easy every night...no more market anxiety...no more having to ponder over when to sell or if you should buy at all. Investing the "Corporate Payback System" way won't leave you cringing on a daily basis.
 
One of the Safest Ways to Invest Right Now
So, do you want to know about "Corporate Payback System"...?
 
CORPORATE BONDS!
Short term-Investment Grade Corporate Bonds
 
You may have to consider the downward market swing and get heavily invested in corporate bonds for the sake of your savings, for the sake of your future.  
 
 
 
Listen to what some others have to say...
 
 
 
"High- quality bonds pay off even for the most cautious investor"
"With many investors terrified of the stock market and afraid to touch anything but U.S. Treasuries, investment advisers are trying to steer clients into bonds that are paying higher interest, while still being light on risk: the safest municipal bonds and high-quality corporate bonds... Shorter-term bonds can be even more attractive." Gail MarksJarvis, www.BondsOnline.com
 
Don't Forget About Corporate Bonds
By MICHAEL KAHN "With their intense popularity, Treasuries lack a proper payoff. But investment-grade, company-issued bonds are starting to look attractive again."
 
"Money also found its way into highly rated corporate bonds, with the iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond Fund ...up 1.0%, or 87 cents, at $88.47"    Javier Espinoza and Lisa LaMotta, www.Forbes.com
 
 
 
 
 
"BONDS are not Boring nor are they slow in growth! Most wealthy people...I'm talking about Multi-Millionaires and Billionaires know better.  If they are carefully picked, BONDS yield high income, large profits and protect your capital.
 
AIG...LEHMAN...Bear Stearns... Shareholders Wiped Out... Bondholders Still Get Paid!
 
Your Very Own Personal Bond Professional...
At Your Assistance!
In the last couple years, the readers of Gryphon Financial have asked me time and time again, when we would  have a service and newsletter that catered to Bond trading, something that recommended safe, high profit, low risk Bonds.
Being as the market is these days, I knew there is no time like the present. Although these things take time, I mean finding the right person for the job. Bonds are an area of expertise, I needed a skilled "authority" to distribute this guidance to our faithful readers. Well without further ado allow me to introduce you to Gryphon's newest guru...
 
David Sparks. Who we kindly refer to as "Sparky"
 
David Sparks a familiar name I am sure you know, worked with one of our largest competitors, who I dare not name, where he was the Chief Editor and Bond Trader for the last 5 years. David's specialty has been in Investment Speaking. With a retirement aged clientele, David's specialty quickly became centered around conservative investments and bonds. He is an accomplished risk management professional and is more than ideal for the task at hand.
 
GET EXCITED BY FORGETTING THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE MARKET
Here's what you need to know...
 
There are several ways companies raise money for their operations, expansions or improvements. They 1. Go through their existing return, 2. By releasing new stock, or 3. By borrowing money through bonds.
 
David will be recommending "INVESTMENT GRADE" Bonds. These bonds are issued by companies who have the best of credit and are the safest bets. These bonds are some of the best investments in the world when it comes to low risk and high gain. When you begin to invest in Bonds you will be joining some very influential groups. Groups like major financial institutions, pension funds and insurance companies.
 
So...How Will You Make Money...
All Bonds are issued at a value of $1000.00. With time of course, there are numerous aspects in the market that may cause a Bond to trade for less than its value. This being called a "discount" allots the trader to be paid the discount amount to be paid out at its maturity. David's forte is recommending Bonds that are trading at a discount. This is how you will be able to secure profitable gains, plus interest. THIS IS TOTAL EARNINGS!
Watch how it works...
 
An Example of a Company that is Legally Obligated
to pay You 40%...
David is presently recommending a Bond from a very well know, and reputable company. The Bond cost today is $795 and it does not mature until January 2010. The interest due on this bond is a rate of 7.75%, which is due in January and again in June of 2009, and again in January of 2010.So, you would receive three payments of $116.25 in interest and the face value of $1000 in January of 2010, which corresponds to a profit of $205.
Mathematically...
 
BOND COST = $795
 

INTEREST AND PROFIT = $321.25
 

=40.4% TOTAL RETURN or 32.3% ANNUAL RETURN
 

Sure beats losing money in the stock market!
 
I'm Proud to Present to You
The Bond Authority
The opportunities in high yielding, high quality bonds is astonishing! Under any circumstance corporate Bonds are one the most striking investments you could own in your portfolio.
 
This is why Gryphon Financial has joined forces with David Sparks, so you can enjoy the profits, get the information you need, give you commentary and advice and above all recommendations for profitable, high quality Bonds.

The Holding Periods Will Help You Beat Inflation - The Bond Authority will choose Bonds with short holding periods, let's say (12-24 months) that way you can still invest the principal monthly and keep up with the market.

Financial elite have no shame

Good weekend to you!  We the business team are pleased to bring you an article that really gives a scolding to the financial ilete.  During these very scary economic times many are saying that a lot of our hardships should and could be attributed to the financial ilete. 
We will let you be the judge of this.  This article gives you an insight into what is really going on here and why the financial elite should be taking responsibility.
We wish you a great weekend.
 
 
Financial elite have no shame
 
Even in face of crisis, they continue to push for tax cuts instead of
stimulus.
 
by Linda McQuaig
January 27, 2009
 
Let's imagine, for a moment, how different the public debate would be today
if it had been unions that had caused the current economic turmoil.
 
In other words, try to imagine a scenario in which union leaders - not
financial managers - were the ones whose reckless behaviour had driven a
number of Wall Street firms into bankruptcy and in the process triggered a
worldwide recession.
 
Surely it's time to rethink this resistance to government acting as an agent
of the common good.
 
Needless to say, it's hard to imagine a labour leader being appointed to
oversee a bailout of unions the way former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson
was put in charge of supervising the $700 billion bailout of his former Wall
Street colleagues.
 
My point is simply to note how odd it is that the financial community has
emerged so unscathed, despite its central role in the collapse that has
brought havoc to the world economy.
 
Of course, not all members of the financial community were involved in Wall
Street's wildly irresponsible practices of bundling mortgages into
securities and trading credit default swaps. But the financial community as
a whole, on both sides of the border, certainly pushed hard to put in place
an agenda of small government, in which financial markets largely regulated
themselves and citizens (particularly high-income investors) would be spared
the burden
of paying much tax.
 
The agenda advanced much further in the US, but had an impact in Canada,
particularly on the tax front.
 
One would think that those who pushed this agenda so enthusiastically would,
at the very least, be a tad embarrassed today.
 
But so influential are those in the financial elite - and their hangers-on
in think-tanks and economics departments - that they continue to appear on
our TV screens, confidently providing us with economic advice, as if they'd
played no role whatsoever in shaping our economic system for the past
quarter century.
 
Of course, we're told there's been a major change in their thinking, in that
many of them are now willing to accept large deficits in today's federal
budget, in the name of stimulating the economy.
 
While this does seem like a sharp departure from the deficit hysteria of the
1990s, a closer look reveals the change may not be that significant.
 
In fact, financial types have always accepted deficits - when they liked the
cause. Hence their lack of protest over George W Bush's enormous deficits,
which were caused by his large tax cuts for the rich and his extravagant
foreign wars.
 
What they don't like is governments going into deficit to help ordinary
citizens - either by creating jobs or providing much unemployment relief.
 
So the Canadian financial community has been urging that the stimulus
package consist mostly of income tax cuts - even though direct government
spending would provide much more stimulus and do more to help the neediest.
 
If the Harper government follows the financial community's advice, we will
simply move further along with the small government revolution launched by
Ronald Reagan in the early 1980s.
 
Of course, tax cuts are not the same as financial deregulation. But they are
twin prongs of a bundled package aimed at reducing the power of government
to operate in the public interest.
 
Surely it's time to rethink this resistance to government acting as an agent
of the common good. And maybe it's time for a little humility on the part of
a financial elite that long has enjoyed such deference while turning out to
be so spectacularly inept.

Important answers to consumers concerns

    Top of the day to you out there!  I'm Donna J. Jodhan and I am delighted to be here with you again.
This week I have a very heavy e-bag to work with so let me get started.
 
 
Answers to consumers concerns
Question from Cliff Charles:  What is your take on online chat rooms and online chatting?
Answer:  Cliff, I do believe that online chatting can be both good and bad and it all depends on how it is used.  On the one hand, it is a way and a very good one for people to exchange ideas and expand both their social and business horizons but on the other hand, if not used in the right way it can be potentially distracting and harmful.  I have managed to dig up a great reference for you and invite you to read it below.  There are some very interesting opinions expressed in this article.  Great question.
Online chatting reaches new heights. But is it dangerous?

Question from Danny Woo:  I wonder if entrepreneurs can really survive on the income from their own business or do they need another job to support themselves?
Answer:  Danny, when I first started out as an entrepreneur, I definitely needed another job to support myself for the first few years.  If I did not have another job then it would have been very difficult for me.  However, with great care and careful planning, I used my second job to support my entrepreneurship and I have successfully managed to grow my entrepreneurship into a full fledged company.  The reference below has some very insightful opinions to share with the reader and I urge you to read it.

Quite frankly, the elite option service is not for everyone.

Hello there!  Another weekend at our doorstep and we the business desk team are happy to share a very interesting article with you.
This article focuses on the qualifications of investors and why you should be paying attention to the type of investor that you choose to manage your finances.  A good investor can bring you a lot of financial security but a bad one can certainly muck up your future in a hurry.
This article also comes from a very reliable source.
We wish you a great weekend.
 
 
Quite frankly, the elite option service is not for everyone.
Not all investors have what it takes to become an "elite" option trader. Many have tried and millions have failed. If you feel you have the patience and the "brass balls" to hold an option from $2.00 to $90.00 like I have, continue reading! If you feel you do not have the "brass balls" that are required to join the "elite" and battle like a Spartan Warrior on the front lines of the battlefield, there are plenty of other services available, that will produce profit margins similar to a bank C.D.! If you are still reading that means you take the road less traveled and are not comfortable making anything less than $250,000.00 a year.
 
If you take the first step in the right direction and join this service, I would like to personally welcome you to the club and also give the 1st 50 people who sign up, the opportunity to exclusively work one on one with me and receive the trades before they enter my portfolio.
 
How the service works.... It's very simple - you will be receiving the most explosive option trades just as I am about to hit the "buy" button with my multi-billion dollar finger!!!  The basis of this service is not to overwhelm you with too many option trades, because if you do....that's when you lose control of managing your positions and spread yourself too thin. My investment strategy is more about putting quality trades in my portfolio as opposed to a quantity of trades and hoping I get lucky. The reason I am so successful trading options is my ability to seek out the most explosive trades every week and put the vast majority of my weekly investment capital into these positions. By using my investment strategy, I raise my success rate and profit margin per trade..... through the roof!!!
 
(ALL POSITIONS HELD LESS THAN 30 DAYS AND HELD WITHIN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 2008) 
 
"APA JC" @ $5.60 SOLD @ $10.50 88%.......
"GS UT" @ $1.20 SOLD @ $6.70 458%.....
"MS UF" @ $2.20 SOLD @ $6.60 200%.......
"DVN JA" @ $3.60 SOLD @ $8.00 122%.....
"LYH UK" @ $2.75 SOLD @ $16.50 500%........ 
 I can tell you how great I am at trading options, but there is only one way to find out for yourself...... and that's by joining me in my "Elite Option Service", and if I do not meet or exceed your expectations over the next 12 months I will personally give you 6 months of service for free......on me!  That's how confident I am you will love joining the ranks of the "elite" and trading options like a stone cold killer!!!  I will see you at the top, real soon!!!
 
12 MONTHS FOR $199.00....
1 - 2 OPTION TRADES PER WEEK (BASIC CALLS AND PUTS).......

Good day everyone!  I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk.
There are some people out there who still believe that the market crash may not really affect seniors and retirees.  Not true, and could not be further from the truth.
