    The two key aspects of investing

    Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

    The two key aspects of investing
    Treating stocks the way one treats other commodities they buy in their daily lives is essential. That is, buy when prices move lower or when discounts are available. Buying companies at good valuations is one of the key aspects of long term returns. And when this is combined with a good enough margin of safety, the chances of going wrong would be minimised substantially. In the Intelligent Investor, Graham mentioned two key aspects that Buffett believes are probably the most important essays he has read on in investing. He discusses the same in this speech.

    Is it time to end the Fed?
    Next week, the US Federal Reserve will celebrate its 100th anniversary. The Fed was created in 1913 to prevent financial panics and crises. However as this insightful article points out, the Fed has completely failed in its primary task. No one has ever seriously questioned its mistakes and only a small number of Americans are even aware of its upcoming centennial anniversary. The author, renowned US senator Ron Paul, calls for the end of the US Fed in this article. (Safe Heaven)

    Is the paper money system on its last legs?
    There have been warnings galore from respected economic experts about how we are living in dangerous times. The central theme for almost all of them is the seeds of self- destruction that a paper money system we live in carries. They are almost unanimous in their view that this huge artificial structure is likely to come down sooner than later. Read on to find out the various ways in which the end game can occur.

    This can save you from millions of losses...
    This technique is very critical in the airline and healthcare industry. Without it, many lives would be at serious risk. But this technique is not exclusive to just these industries. Many successful value investors are known to use it to eliminate errors and inconsistencies in decision making. If applied correctly to your investments, it could not only save you from huge losses, but also set you up on your path to wealth creation. What is this technique all about? Read on to find out... (Dow Jones & Company)

    Did the Bernanke magic work?
    Mr Bernanke prepares to depart, and Janet Yellen prepares to take over soon at the helms. But as he moves out, there remain many question unanswered. Did his glory from an astute and polished banker to a tumultuous term end diminish? Is he himself culpable for the crisis? Did he meet his goals? Did the monetary policy stances augur well for the US economy or did it bring nightmares to the eurozone and the EMEs? Find out more from the eye-opener piece from Financial Times below that tells us whether the Ben magic worked or failed.... (Financial Times)
