What I Learned Living in a Million Dollar Home for 3 Weeks
By The Money Wizard
It’s true: for the past month, I’ve been living in a million-dollar home.
Yes, for the past three weeks I abandoned my modest two-bedroom apartment and moved to one of Minneapolis’s richest, most desirable neighborhoods.
This is a neighborhood where the average home is less likely to sell for a million dollars and far more likely to sell for million-s of dollars.

By the summer of 1936, Europe was in a state of perpetual crisis. Hitler’s rise to power, German invasion of the Rhineland, Spanish Civil War, Fascist Coup attempt in France, etc. World War was just a few years away.

GreatlyBlessed: Gold jumps to fresh high, now at levels not seen since August 2013
Gold surged to its highest level in nearly six years on Monday as the prospects of lower Federal Reserve rates and lingering geopolitical tensions between the U.S. and Iran made the precious metal more attractive to traders.
Gold futures for August delivery traded as high as $1,417.70 per ounce, highest mark since reaching $1,418.60 on Aug. 29, 2013. The precious metal traded more than 1% higher as of 11:30 a.m. ET.
“The geopolitical tensions and an expectation of a more dovish Fed pushed investors to increase their gold exposure,” Mark Keenan, global commodities specialist at Societe Generale, said in a note.“Gold continues to be extremely overbought with short positions staying at their yearly lows and long positions climbing to their highest level since February 2018.”
“This extreme positioning is likely to linger as [Fed Chair] Jerome Powell reassured markets about the Fed’s capacity and willingness to support economic expansion with rate cuts and other unconventional management tools,” Keenan said.
