The Wall Street salesmen crowd seems to control the financial media. They get to control the conversation and “group think” investment ideas we've been subjected to for years – often very trying years for our actual investments, such as the tech bubble blow-up and the financial collapse of ’08-’09. Yet these same Wall Street prognosticators continue to fill the financial media (papers, TV, blogs, sales material, etc.) with the same old, tired ideas they've used for decades to sell product to the masses. Personally, I've had enough!

“Street Wall” is your antidote for Wall Street’s nonsense. Written by Tom Hamilton , President of Hamilton Wealth Management, “Street Wall” provides honest, insightful financial information for YOU, the reader, the investor, the one who Wall Street has directly in their cross-hairs. Street Wall ignores the “company line” and gives the reader a real, honest perspective on investing, markets, financial planning and the like.

Wall Street may not like “Street Wall” very much, but I assure you, the feeling is mutual! So many investors have been hurt by one Wall Street problem after another. Questionable sales techniques by sales people calling themselves “financial advisors”, phony market bubbles inflated by disingenuous “research”, scandals too numerous to list, capped off by the complete collapse of the financial system in 2008. We've had enough!

The recently passed NY State budget quietly changed who will be affected by state level estate taxes in our state. Under the old rules, many were surprised when a loved on died to find out their estate was subject to "death taxes" due...

Oh boy, this is getting fun! The U.S. stock market, lead by the NASDAQ, has really been volatile of late. Down 3% or so a week ago, back up early this week, then down over 2% as I write this. It may be back up tomorrow - who...

My last financial blog, "What Happens to the Downstairs" was a bit of a sarcastic look at the Fed policy of quantitative easing and why I believe there really is now well-conceived "out" for the Fed. Basically, my operating premise is...
