The Wealth Builder Carnival #76

Welcome to the seventy-sixth 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.  This week all of the submissions were excellent and I enjoyed reading each one.

However, from an investing standpoint, it does provide an opportunity..."

Super Saver presents Net Short posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "The value of short positions are now greater than the value of long positions in my trading account. If the market should decline this week, the value of the trading account will increase."

Raj presents The Basics of Money Management – Save, Invest and Repeat | eMoneyLog posted at eMoneyLog, saying, "The article covers the basics of money management – saving, investing and repeating the process.
