Carnival of Passive Investing #31 - June 2013 Edition Now Live at Investing Monk

The 31st (June 2013) edition of the Carnival of Passive Investing is now live on The Investing Monk at the link below. A big thanks to Vipin over at that site for hosting this time around!

Carnival of Passive Investing # 31 - June 2013 Edition

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top picks (shown below)!

1. Anton Ivanov presents Why Stock Market Timing Is a Waste of Time posted at Dreams Cash True. The sad truth is that market timing is largely futile. The vast majority of active traders fail to outperform long-term investing strategies that do not rely on timing the market. Many investors end up with large losses, loose their motivation and proclaim that stock market investing is dead.

2. PK presents Want to Be a Better Investor? Ask Your Wife! posted at Don’t Quit Your Day Job.Here are some hard facts that might blow a hole in your passive plan – even though men generally control the investing strings, women are better investors. Consider this evidence when coming up with your strategy!

3. Jacob @ My Personal Finance Journey presents Should You Include Emergency Fund and Specifically-Earmarked Savings in Your Overall Asset Allocation? posted at My Personal Finance Journey. Should savings that are earmarked for specific short/intermediate-term needs (vacations, buying a car, home down payment, college savings, doggie emergency fund, buying a new $3,000 bike, saving for a pool, saving for a rental real estate investment) and one’s emergency fund be included in your long-term asset allocation percentages? Or, should it be considered as a completely separate basket(s)? This post answers these questions.


A big thanks to our participants and host, Investing Monk! Our host of the next (July 2013 - # 32) edition, scheduled to go live on June 30th, 2013 will be A Rich Life! Be sure to get your articles in now (see instructions below)!

Thanks again for tuning in!

Until next time,
