The Wealth Builder Carnival #128

Welcome to the one hundred twenty-eighth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic. For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now on to the Carnival.

Insuring and Protecting

Bryan presents Common Craigslist Scams posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Craigslist is an awesome online service that revolutionized the classified listings industry. However, with any great creation, there are con-artists trying to scam honest buyers and sellers. This article details the schemes of common Craigslist scams and offers strategies on how to avoid being a victim."


Dividends4Life presents 13 Dividend Stocks Delivering What's Important posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "For many investors, there is no clear conviction as to how they should invest. Today’s investments are guided by what was read yesterday, and the popular media is constantly churning out new and different ideas. Granted it makes for some “interesting” reads, but it certainty is no way to run a portfolio. Time has proven the positive correlation between consistently raising dividends and stock performance..."

John Schmoll presents Online Brokerages I’ve Used: Etrade Review posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "There are many online brokerages to use as you look to invest in the stock market. The good ones are there to meet your needs and help make sure you’re doing what you can to be investing for things like retirement."

Vytas presents Calm trend trading strategy posted at Trend, saying, "In a calm trend you would see: a clear breakout from its’ previous range and then orderly movement of price forming higher highs and higher lows continuing from a week to multiple months. You would seldom see very strong counter trend rallies and if you do these would be short lived and market would again form some reversal pattern that would be a unique opportunity for you to jump into a trade and go with the flow. This is a strategy that George Soros used to make one billion dollars in Japanese Yen in 2013."

Jason Hull presents Did You Serve in Combat? Check Your Portfolio! posted at Hull Financial Planning, saying, "A recent Cornell study shows that combat veterans may be too risk averse in their investment strategy. This article explains what is happening and where to get help."

Living Frugally

Theresa Torres presents 5 Secrets to Saving Money with Wedding DIY Projects posted at I Just Said Yes, saying, "Do it yourself projects can help you save money on your wedding expenses. If you're a soon-to-be bride, here are some tips for you."


Super Saver presents Spending More on Home Services posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Now that I'm older and retired, I'm moving more towards having professionals do the work."


Edward Webber presents How Much Can You Earn Without Paying Taxes 2013? posted at TaxFix Feed Update, saying, "Do you want to know how much you can earn without paying any tax in the UK? This article provides all the details and how the limit has been increased."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
