Friday Personal Finance Review for April 27
All in all this has been a pretty good week in the world of finance and also for One Smart Dollar. The S&P 500 has had a really nice bounce off it’s latest pull back and as I write this currently sits at 1403.81. Does that mean it’s back to the upward trend? I don’t believe so because a lot of technical indicators are starting to point towards a little more of a correction in our near future. Personally I think we will be pretty flat through the elections in November.
As far as One Smart Dollar goes my Alexa ranking keeps dropping and is now down another 200,000 spots to 623,000. That means since I started focusing a lot more time here I have dropped from over 5 million to 623,000. Not a bad move in a one month timespan if you ask me. I would like to see myself drop below 500,000 by this time next week. Best part is that I am met some other awesome personal finance bloggers.
