5 Signs That Point to a Stock Bubble 📈

An update on the child tax credit

Retire with Money
Elizabeth O'Brien
Cryptocurrencies have taken a beating in recent days, and it’s hard to say whether the rout will continue. These digital darlings are new enough that there’s not much data on how they behave in different market environments. Bitcoin was in its infancy during the Great Recession, for example, and dogecoin didn’t even exist. What’s more, cryptocurrencies don’t trade on quantifiable metrics like widget sales. From where I stand, they might as well be stardust. Stocks, on the other hand, have reams of historical data for prognosticators to parse. And they trade at least partly on business fundamentals like price-to-earnings ratio. By some metrics, stocks are looking pricier than at any time since the dot-com bust. Learn more about these indicators in today’s edition.

Best wishes,
Elizabeth

RETIRE WITH MONEY COMMUNITY NEWS
This week in our Retire with Money Facebook group, a member asked for advice: “I’m interested in retiring somewhere overseas to keep costs low and beach access high.” One member suggested Portugal, only to have another say, “Shhh,” as if to avoid letting the secret out of the bag. International Living is a good resource for Americans looking to retire abroad. Wherever you’re considering, it’s a smart idea to test out a possible locale for a few months as a resident, not a tourist. One member made the reverse move, relocating to the U.S. from abroad. He said, “I’m no help, I moved to SoCal from Australia, and think I scored. Way better living in San Diego, and the Central Coast, than Melbourne, Sydney, or Cairns. But, there are two ways to be rich, earn more, or spend less.” Well put!
