"Your website Terry savage dot com She is the author of a couple of national bestselling books and we might as well check the wit and wisdom of Terry savage in her writings Does the savage truth on money for openers offer any help here for people trying to combat inflation Well sure because I never forgot about inflation So that's one of the basic things I want to give you a fact though Jim when we went to break we were talking about jobs And I thought somebody out there was going to say that's not right So I look during the break As of January 1st now and we're now four months into this or good three and a half months into this year But as of January 1st the economy was still 4.4 million jobs short and 2.7 million workers short of what the pre-pandemic projections were that's adjusted for changes in the population growth In other words when you see all these labor gains and the fact that we have very low unemployment we are still short of jobs and short of workers Our economy is growing dramatically But we have a crunch for labor right now And if we have a recession again we lost 22 million jobs in the first quarter through April anyway of 2020 We forget our memories are short the pain memories short But we lost 22 million jobs as the economy shut down during the pandemic Were you asking me what could they have done What would you have done three or four years ago I remember thinking this is not a good thing to be creating all this money But there are people suffering greatly We had you know middle income family lined up for bags of food That's just it's really hard to believe that that's just two years ago So what we're seeing now is the aftermath of the money that was created to get our economy going again And it worked Now we've got to cool it off a little All right Frank calls in from Cumberland Maryland for Terry savage hello Frank Look I've called before this I never got I keep getting the same answer but the fact is Congress doesn't control the spending Congress does whatever their campaign contributors tell them to do The monitor the campaign contributors certainly have an influence but to say that members of Congress are nothing but puppets to their contributors is frankly not true Frank Just so you know Yes you do I'd like to ask miss savage If interest rate go up will they go up on the national debt Because if they do will be owing a $1 trillion a year in interest on the national debt I would assume that the interest rates affect the national debt as well as anything else Jerry You are surely right after the what we call social programs and defense interest is the third largest category on the national debt And as you see the government being forced to pay higher interest rates The biggest beneficiary of those two years where we've had unbelievably low rates you and all the people that go to the bank and say you're giving me 0.01 What's that all about The biggest beneficiary has been the U.S. government which has been able to borrow at very low rates I don't have the exact statistics now but you're going to see a huge jump in the deficit as we file more money and as we pay interest on the debt we've already borrowed And as it matures and we have to refinance it at higher rates So that was a great point That'll be a headline probably in 6 or 7 or 8 months Do you know how much interest is costing us on all the 30 trillion We have borrowed out there a lot Yeah A ton In fact again as Terry noted entitlements and interest on the debt are a huge portion of all the federal expenditures we have and interest on the debt is nothing more than money that we take every day and we dump into the trash Back with more in just a moment Dirty exterior.

"W G, and you're listening to Chicago's afternoon news. Terry Savage is on the phone line now and we're taking your questions. 3129817 200 We will start with Randy Randy. Welcome to W G. N. Other, Steve my question Terry is playing on to retire in Absolutely 20 months. And if I I plan on living off my IRA, and we're going so security until I reach 70. But if I take out excess money over my livery expenses, can I put money fact into the IRA and still claim instruction for it? Not if you're not working. You can only put earned income into an IRA today at Randy, How old are you? I'll be 65 a half when I retired. Okay? Is there any possibility that instead of taking money out of your IRA over the next few years until you reach full retirement age that you could either work part time or earn a little bit more money in some way that may not relate to your current job, but Yeah, You're right. I'm not thinking about driving, ecstatic. Wait a minute. Randy's put in 40 years. He wants to put his feet up and retire. Right. Ready. I would still be able to work. Our time. In the current field, So that's not a problem. Really. I'm going to tell you something, the most important thing you conducive Oh, You're absolutely right is delay Social security until you're for retirement age or beyond. The second. Most important thing you can do is delay taking withdrawals from your eye, All right. Until you're required to do so. It's 72. So I know it's such an important target to look forward to. That's it. I'm out of here. I'm retired. But if you have that opportunity to work three or four, maybe even five more years, part time. And not touch any of that money. It's going to compound itself in a major way in your financial security down the road, so don't take money out of your eye. All right way too. Maybe 68 69, maybe even 70 for Social security. It's an 8% increase every year. All right, Thanks for the call Randy. Enjoy every time in whatever comes even if its partial okay. Okay. I stayed like that. We're gonna head Tol Grant here, Grant. Welcome to W g. And what can we do for you, Dave? Hi, Carrie. Hello. We've got a check in the mail today from the Treasury Department. Good for you. $25,200. I have no idea what we'll be right over. No idea. Why no idea why it wasn't it like they misplaced some digits on your $2500 tax refund. We got 20 $100 tax refund last week And today we got a check for $25,200 that said night 2019 tax refund. Okay, So wait, so 2019 tax return last July. Okay? Yes. You did. Okay. Did you do it yourself? Or did you have a tax preparer Intuit with themselves? Did you do it? Like using terrible taxes? Something like this. This is hysterical. I mean, this is a lovely problem. But you weren't expecting this one of a number. Not at all. Can you do my taxes next year? Grant? I'd love to Steve. So what happens? Terry is their legal obligation here. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah, there is. There is, I mean, do not spend that money. Do not spend that money. But I'll tell you what I will do my email. Everybody knows it's Terry and terry savage dot com. Send me an email. Give me a few little details so that I can forward it to my contact the media contact, But he knows everything at the I R s and if you want, I'll forward it to them or I will just ask him. So send me your information and tell me no, don't forward my information to the IRA. Give me your information and I'll ask it the IRA. But it's definitely not at all related to anything that could have been on your 2019 returned and it says a refund. Correct, But it does say it's regarding 2019 taxes. Okay? Yeah, and people are I want, you know people are Manny. Many people are still waiting for their 2019 tax return refunds. And once they filed last July fit in one quick question, Did you file electronically? Yeah. You did. I'm sorry. Didn't I couldn't remember. You said that. Okay? Yes. Let me an email and at least I'll get back to you. I promise insect not to give me your name and email. But I'll ask him how that could possibly happen. And what you should do now. Can't call anybody to get help there at noon effect. You know, you can't call anybody that CASS kind of return it. Keep us updated. I want to know what the story is, like, Okay? Well, I deposited the check today I had the bank confirmed that it's the real check from from the Treasury Department. And they said, Yes, it is. They looked at it and they said, yes, way checked it out, and it's a It's a real check. We came in. I thought we played Gramp. Right now We're playing with $9000. Okay with your email again. Promise not to give your information to the IRA. I thought twice about that. It's Terry, a terry savage dot com. Got it. I don't want to tell you what to do. But it's prime rib date. Okay, Grant, You got that right out to dinner. Thanks for the call. We're gonna jump up to marry No one. I know It's fantastic on your, uh, Mary, can you top that question? I don't think so. But my question is my husband is looking to retire, possibly by the end of the year in his money in his retirement in his 403 B through his an employer is mostly in the market and clearing a correction. He's trying to decide what to do with the money to keep it safe for so he doesn't lose always gain so far any thoughts. Yeah, I have a lot of thoughts about that, because that's the problem of everyone who's on the edge of retirement. Every time you thought the market couldn't go higher it has And I'm not saying it won't. But what you need to do is come up with more than just How much money do I leave in the market versus weird? Well, so I put it. I'll give you a comment on that. But you really need to come up with a plan for retirement about how much you could withdraw from that for a freebie. How you invested, how you withdraw it to make sure you don't run out of money before you run out of time. And for that, to get some really good advice, not just investment advice, but how much you're going to spend. How much is you know? Are your Medicare premiums going to be your supplements? Things like that? You need a financial planner. I have done something and put on the front page of terry savage dot com. A link to Wealth ramp which has be on Lee Fiduciary financial Advisors, who are not trying to sell you something. And I would suggest you set up in the first meeting. It's free. Go through the quiz. I get nothing out of this at all. It's put up by my good friend Pam Kruger, who is like me really wants to help people and then carefully vetted all the advisors there Now they alternative. First of all if he retires when he retired, he can roll over his 403 B into an IRA. Call Fidelity or Vanguard. They'll help him do that, because the stuff in the eye in the 43 B is mainly for younger people who are trying accumulate money and grow their money. So do they were all over upon retirement. While he's there, which some of it out to the most conservative options. There probably isn't a money market fund. But there could be a stable value fund or a very conservative fund inside before three be at roll over time, you put some money, perhaps into a money market or some more conservative investments, and that's really why you need a financial Plan or not someone who's a broker. I wasn't broker so they're not all trying to tell you something. But someone who really is looking at the big picture of your life in retirement. You work too hard, Mary for too long with to save that money, So make sure you get some good advice to protect it, okay? Yeah, There's an old saying in the stock market, Mary Cell down the sleeping point, so right.

It's their number one seller in 2019, and so they're celebrating or trying to sell more stuff by coming up with everything but the leftover seasoning. So it's a new seasoning mix that will figure Thanksgiving or is it oriented? It's out of the pumpkin onion, salt to Merrick dried thyme and other seasoning. So sort of like the Stuffing mix. Yeah, so they're all right. If they're se jin it, I'm done. I'm not buying it. A hate hate Seo hates age. Really? Yeah, That's too bad because sage is wonderful. Terry Savage, speaking of a sage is on the phone line. How about that? How are you, Terry? And I love that. So everything but the bagel seasoning or your big fan. I never even heard of it. So you had a look. But I'm going to go find it. You got to find a trader Joe's It'll change your life. Terry savages here. If you have a phone book, a question 3129817 200 or you can always text. This is well like the market's closed down. I think the Dow is down about 150 points. The S and P down 6/10 of a point the NASDAQ down, even lesson that 1/10 of a point. What was going on today? Nothing matters. There was I was glued to the TV set watching the hearings all day long. It was just a fascinating on both sides. Lesson in American democracy and politics and history. I found that one of the most interesting days of television I've watched. Wow, I am. Didn't I relied on other people to pull the highlights? Because I to me. Some of that is so such posturing on both sides of not a big fan of it, but anyway, well, that's good, but it was interesting seeing both sides back to back to back. Just a fascinating day. Um, and none of it, I think affected the markets the markets there now in a holding pattern, the markets they're trying to figure out what will happen in the election. And what will happen with the stimulus. Believe it or not, that little, you know, tease stimulus is still out there. The potential of it, So I think the market just feeding on itself, traders trading back and forth. I and I listen to all that the guru of this and that we've had Jeff gone Black predicting a huge bear market sometime in the next 18 months. Then Dennis Gartman, my old favorite guru. Back on Fox business yesterday. I think it was maybe the day before yesterday, talking about the fact that this is a bull market. No doubt about it so something to my greatest people. You know, people I listen to Moz. Completely disagreeing, and that's what the market is just not agreeing on anything in particular. You know, my wife and I were talking this weekend about the economy, which is really exciting life we lead and about, you know, because the economy just absolutely crashed in March in April, so we went into a recession, but we're already out of the recession, right technically, just because we're growing Doesn't mean where where we were or a good spot, but the recession's over. Yes, all relatives. We always had great increases in in job, but we still have 10 million people unemployed at a bounce from the bottom, and that makes the numbers look good. But what if you compared to a year ago? The numbers don't look so good. It's so it's half full, or have I got yelled at during a newscast several months ago, and I called it a stellar jobs report because Hundreds of thousands of jobs were created it It was very good news given where we were, but of course, it wasn't close to where you know the recovery that we need to have have made to come through. That's exactly what's happening now and again. The prospect did I not mention that there's an election coming up. Also in three weeks when I when I said the market just on hold, I think that's a lot of it now. All right, the solitary savages here 3129817 200 couple of you are already on hold, so we'll talk to her. About that, coming up. Also, I want to talk about the retirees learned about their social security increases, right? Wow. It's a mixed bag. I'll tell you. Why will you tell me why in just a few minutes,.

IRS extends deadline to register for federal stimulus check

"Of headlines on the business front today, wth E i. R s is reaching out. This is actually from Terry Savages column and she's going to join us next week. Terry will be here next Wednesday. The IRS is reaching out to approximately nine million Americans who deserved a stimulus check but didn't get one likely because they earned too little to have filed a tax return and are not on the government's benefit lists like Social Security, disability SS I stuff like that. Just maybe nine million people out there that are supposed to get a stimulus check. Still have not. The IRS is trying to tell people that did not get that $1200 but should have received it. That they have until and they've moved this now. November 21st to register. You can go toe I rs dot gov slash corona Virus Last non filers enter payment information here anyway. If you goto iris dot gov slash corona virus. If you did not get a stimulus check, there's still hope that you could Right? And they just move that yesterday. Actually, I think that yesterday, maybe with Monday they the IRS. It was originally October 15th, which was a week from today. That you had to actually get your information into the IRS. And by the way, if you just Goto iron back up, there's actually a link right on the home page right at the top. That says non filers enter payment info here, and that's where you go to get this. I'm very pleased that Terry's obviously covered this and that we've pushed Deadline back. I think every nine million people not get their $1200 is a very important number and it would. It's just a shame that so many people I haven't had access to that cash so smart move on the part of the eye arrests and I hope people will go to IRS stock tub and feel free to investigate their how they can get that money. Congress has not agreed upon a second stimulus check. I don't know. Are you reading the tea leaves out there? If and when is that going to happen to you guessed Terry or ah, police. I guess I would say John, that we're definitely going to have some sort of. If I had to read the tea leaves. We only have three weeks left the election. I think there's a lot of pressure on to get something done in the next three weeks. And I would think from President Trump's side that he would want to be able to boast about getting another deal done, and that's been his M O right. He's dealmakers get the deal done. I think the Democrats also want to help people that really driven but that there is just a huge amount of pain going on. Right now. We talked earlier about the number of people who are unemployed. The continuing numbers are frightening. More than 25 million Americans. They're filing some sort of unemployment claims weekend week out. We're seeing, you know 850,000 roughly people filed for first time unemployment claims. Plus the P way on top of that the pandemic unemployment assistance another 1,350,000 you're looking at, like a million and a half people who every week filing for some sort of assistance. And the number of people who are now food and secure closing in on 20%. So you know, I think the Democrats you're motivated. I sure hope the administration is motivated. Feels like we should be able to get something done in the next couple of weeks. You hoped I think you have caused to be mad at both

"Right? Terry Savage joins us right now. Terry savage dot com She is the chief Economic analyst for the Roe, Conn. Show unpaid position. All right, let's let's talk about what we've been promoting her for last couple of days there, Let me just finish this. Well, there's going to be three new buzzwords. And I want you oughta listen, We don't have to care a lot of up stock market. I hope you don't care about the ups and downs. Hope you just regularly consider, you know, continuing to invest Hope if you're retired, you've got a nice mountain Stocks, Maybe 50% depending on your age and your stage in life, and you need growth over the long one. And you still have a long one. I hope but you're going to hear three new buzzwords. No one is going to be healthy Cleansing. Aziz relates to the market action yesterday. Another is going to be Taking a breather before it goes to new high. You're going to hear that from all the pundits, and here's one that I bet you I'm going to start counting the number of times I hear this. The word is double top. Because, you know, we made a peek in the stock market left January early February, just these levels. And if you take a long time I used to when I was starting to learn about a long, long time ago, when they only had paper church, not on your computer. You get the giant book the chart that would come out every month and I would get it. Take a piece of paper. And before I turned the page and put it over and cover the half of the chart and see if I looked at this could I figure out where the market or this stock was going? And you know you have 50 50 chance of being right, Iran, but you learn about the pattern. They don't make you rich, but they're they're interesting and a lot of people follow those patterns and you're going to hear the word double top here pretty soon. Did the market make a double tap, which would be a prelude to a devastating flight? I have no idea. Wait. A double top is a prelude to a Devastating. Yeah, because in some, you know, it's one of the technical. I don't put the people down because there are a lot of people have spent awful lot of time charting patterns and using different types of charting technique. Then we'll get into it. But one of the most bears patterns is a double top. And so I bet you're going to start hearing that word. Depending on what the market does in the next couple of days, So just remember, you heard it here first. It was just an interesting little Harry tidbit for you. Okay. What do you want to talk about? I would like to ask you about this whole payroll tax deferral should be. Shouldn't people be taking it And can I get out from under it? Wait, wait, wait. So, um, the president unilaterally decided that the corporate America businesses could stop collecting. The payroll picked. Let us call it what it is. It is the Social Security and Medicare attacks you might get personally where I lined up on that side of dead arguments. I would not like this is what funds Social Security and Medicare It's 6.2% on that half of the employer And same amount taken out of the employees. So it's a nice chunk of money. And I guess the idea was if we couldn't get Congress to pass this, that or the other, we would leave people with more money in their pockets..

My brother sent me a note and he said, you know, I kind of cringe when you talk about how smart and safe these young people are these 20 somethings because maybe your kids are but a lot of kids or not, And I take that. The massive parties that happened in my neighborhood are not being attended by 50 year old to being attended by 25 year olds, and they are utterly indifferent not only to the disease they may be catching or spreading, but the fact that everybody in the surrounding buildings in our condos Up and down our street can hear them. Not only is a disturbing to us oldsters US boomers, but it's Easy to call them out. I mean, just for violating what is a regulation that we're all supposed to be adhering to. You ain't supposed to be partying like that. You guys And I would not be surprised if there are loan numbers of new police prospects in the future. After this year. How do you give your kids the incentive to sign up to be a police officer? Yeah, I think that's always been a challenge. And yet some folks do rise to the occasion. It's 11 56.

"Now with Terry Savage, our guest. Okay. But there's news in the commercial break President called even with the Pope's got your number Who's now? No email from KeyBanc chief communications person. Send me the boiler plate, the colony on my unemployment department and I just sent her back something that said of all you try it. Nobody could get through that. And by the way, no one can get through. You're keeping customer service to report fraud. So if you could get that come in the next 10 minutes while I'm on the year I'll report what you say. Tell me to tell people It's because of the identity theft. That's right. Go through the unemployment that identity. Okay. All right. Here we go Back to some phone calls. 3129817 200 mark Richer on W G N radio. How can we help you? Oh, hi. Thank you for taking my call. I'm so happy to talk to a human being. My 24 year old son applied for unemployment. In March, He got an approval he had never been able to get through to certify. He's now in the queue for a call back. Secondly, he had not gotten a stimulus check. All it says is he's either not eligible or they don't have enough information. But How do you even figure out what to do? Margaret, number one goto terry savage dot com Click on aft area questions put his name claimant number and you'll have to put your email on there, but put his email number in the body of the question. I don't make that all public anyway. And I think the story about his unemployment that he was approved but never got the money number two on terry savage dot com Second, calm Down, says something like Didn't get a stimulus check. Do this. I just want to make sure that in your 2018 tax return 28 28 18. Did you declare him as a dependent? Do you think Probably. Yeah, that's why he hasn't gotten a stimulus check. However, if you did not declare him as a dependent on your 2019 return, which you just filed. We that next year in April, when he filed his own 2020 return, he couldn't say God, you guys moved up on thought it was the defendant 2018 but it was independent on 2019. That's what the law says. I'm putting in a claim for my stimulus check will do that next April for stimulus check, Okay? Okay. Okay for a name and claimant number on my When I go to ask Carrie, it's top right hand corner of the yellow highlighted box. Carry a question. Do it that way, folks just on me. Post a question. I'll get your email and because you have to put that in and just tell me your story, and I'll try and see what I could get market. Good luck to you. And then, thanks for the question. Thanks for the answer to Terry. So those people eventually we'll get that money. You think Oh, I think they'll get all their back money one they get unraveled. It doesn't help. I mean, by the time he hears the same thing, by the time you get a big back check for this because they're obligated, but you'll probably be back at work and maybe a better job. Elizabeth. You're on w G N radio. How can we help you? You're on the air. Good afternoon and thank you for taking my call. It took a while to get through to you guys. You're very popular. My daughter filed taxes and as head of household and I'm a senior, and she put me on. As part of her head of household, so I probably I'm not qualified for the stimulus money. According to what you just said about the previous collar. Is that correct? Inside the death, correct a lot of adult Children, their parents their older parents, because they live with him a contribute to their support. It was a sensible thing to do, but that disqualifies you from a stimulus check. You know, maybe we have not discussed it. Yeah, that's going on. Let me take a minute and say, Elizabeth, thank you. And I hope that answers your question right now as we speak, and as we've discussed for the last two weeks They're in our little friends in Washington, trying to decide what the next stimulus bill will look like, because there will be one because both parties want to give you money because they want to buy your vote. That's me being practical and the savage truth mathematical at all. It's just the reality. But how that will come is very much up for debate. The Democrats have proposed $3 trillion. The Republicans, the headlines say, propose one trillion The Democrats want to extend the $600 a week unemployment benefits that end this, we could be the last week. The current recipients in Illinois. Get that $600 check the they want to do. Another. Democrats want to do another round of targeted stimulus, which should maybe remove some of the restrictions like elderly people who were declared dependence or college age students who were declared dependent. Maybe they will get but it won't be. I will You know how much money it would be? And the Republicans want immunity from lawsuits. The president for some reason, and the Republicans want targeted at business to create jobs. Big philosophical thing. The president for some reason, has decided If he wants to eliminate Bica the payroll tax, which is what fun, Social Security and Medicare and I mean, no, I'm very upset about that. And I think everybody should be because we all know Security and Medicare are underfunded and running out in 15 years or so, but more can't pay the full benefits. I don't want to be running out empty, but Won't be. It will be paying money. Only that they couldn't get in from current workers that they have been depleted with all this unemployment so that spend the bike attack which is something you know, Couple of somebody must have told him. That was a good idea. It would be good for business because they pay the other half of it so that that's what he wants. So this is all being debated and they're all trying to get home for vacation, and they're trying to do it before the unemployment. Bonus runs out. So that's what's going on. Do you think it will be extended? Do you think it will be when what amount will be Terry? I would have to have a crystal ball. I think you will extend unemployment benefits. But I would bet you anything you only $600 a week, maybe four things that will be a stimulus. I think it will be broader. The income limits may be lower, but I don't know about the dollar amount of it. I've heard that it will go from 75,000 maybe 47 5 or 50,000. Something like this is all what's being negotiated behind closed doors with masks off and Washington D. C. Okay, Terry. Well, then we'll just wait and see. But a lot of people are really hanging on pins and needles or they're getting their last deposits this week, and they they I'm hearing from in this week, Terry, they need that money. Oh, I don't know Doubt about that. And and by the way, Washington knows it, So I'll tell you what, instead of calling me about that are why your Congress? Terran LaHood is coming on our show tomorrow morning. He's a Republican congressman from Illinois. We found one so he's going to join us. Tomorrow morning. We'll ask him about that. It encouraged him to push that through, Terry. Thank you for your time. Always good to be with you. Remember, go to terry savage.

Especially when it's 98 in human Exactly maybe aware Maurine the fall, But you talked to producer LF off here, okay? Thank you so much. Thanks for listening. That's our mega Monday morning Music madness quiz. We pride ourselves on making the clues Very, very short. Sometimes we make them a little too, So Don't wait. So are you. One of those people who is been relying on or benefitting at least from the extra $600 that's about to end. We're going to talk about that on the wind trust business lunch today. They have not Well, that they they started the plan. They haven't finalized to continue that stimulus that PPP is that the PPP I get my letters mixed up, sometimes stimulus. The extra 600 bucks. For your unemployment benefits. I'm not exactly sure what we're supposed to do there. Terry Savage, Who's the famous financial columnist who frequently joins us here on W. G. N radio, said that she thinks that there will be an additional stimulus. It will not be $600 there might be some caveats to its from carve outs. It might not be his universal, but in an election year it's hard to imagine that they won't And, frankly, considering what some of you are going through, you need the extra $600. The bad thing about the plan possibly has been that it has discouraged some people from wanting to go back to work. Because they're making more money with their unemployment benefits in the $600 bonus. There are people that write for the Chicago Tribune, who's bylines you would recognize and with unemployment benefits, unemployment, insurance compensation and $600. They're making more money, not working, then working. That tells you all you need to know about journalism right now. Maybe the stimulus isn't too high. But the pay is the problem. Still, that's the dilemma, so maybe they need to bring it down a little bit. I'm not exactly sure what the right number would be. But you figure maybe 400 And the other question. And when we asked this to Dick Durbin, the U. S senator, of course from Illinois, he said, No, absolutely. It's the right thing to do. The question is How can we continue to afford these trillion dollar loads on the on the debt? We'll talk a little bit more about that, and we'll catch you up on the markets in the business day. The wind trust business Lunch comes your way. Next working from home schools, you're still on you, John. With everything we have going on right now, it's never been more important to get to sleep.

"On money Terry savage Hey Terry how are you today warning I'm in a very optimistic mood today that's what we like to hear the futures are up at this moment or day yeah absolutely it looks like this the Dow opened up about two hundred points and this economy opens up I've had to divide myself between concerns over the people I know and I listening audience and all around the country were worried because they haven't been able to get their unemployment checks didn't affect people still waiting for some of those and the fact that the economy in America is reopening I always say nobody ever got rich betting against America and that the federal reserve is going to do whatever I have to do to pump money into it so that's what's flowing into the stock market and let me ask you about a couple things that I heard about last week regarding the stock market some of the experts were calling what's been going on lately bear market rallies pointing out that stocks have a history of making big gains within long term down markets only for the bottom to give out again how do you see it I you know I never made a living forecasting the stock market I was a founding member of the CBOE and I was a traitor I have been humbled by market years ago and I was interested early this morning watching one of the legendary investors standing for a family Druckenmiller creek in longtime term investor who said quote he's been humbled by the market come back he underestimated the said and one of the first will you learn about the market is that the market is always right and the market is moved by money and there's a sense out there right now that if the economy falters if there's a second wave of coronavirus if there's some reason that businesses fold instead of re opening that the fed will be there doing everything it that's necessary to keep the economy going the fed chairman promised that now the real question out there would you comes around to answering whether this is the bear market rally in a bear market the real question is as we see the stock market go up as we see the economy reopens will the government you know second deal with money the government deals with policy Congress and the president things like stimulus packages or possibly another round at night as they see all this happening will they pull back and say what we really should wait and see before we have another round of stimulus if that happens you know the the economy it's a day by day thing if you're a long term investor you have your position and you don't care about the wonder market because you know there's never been a twenty year losing period going back to the nineteen twenties if your trader you got a lot but you play a different game than I've ever been able to win at Terry savage has a very interesting column in the Tribune today the headline is a new look at retirement planning and you mentioned a book yeah and you say you want every woman in her fifties or sixties to read this book tells a little bit about this Terry okay what is a famous financial planner Alexander Armstrong human a friend of mine for many years in fact I think her innate knowledge mints from the latest edition of the savage truth on money and the two of us it's just sort of conservative people who keep at it trying to help people and she recognizes that women live longer and have different choices to make when it comes to retirement planning the odds are if there was a a spouse in our lives that we will outlive that person and their different retirement choices I think he's taken an approach that I would that I was entranced was talking about the stories of four different women all any of whom could be a girlfriend of mine and the issues they face whether married or single women where women are traditional how's life and so the next chapter in the book your next chapter should be your next chapter Alexander Armstrong and I know women have certain fears that are just different and I think this is dresses and beautiful N. as you read in your column today the recent economic financial social changes in our country have impacted not only our investments and financial planning but also our entire view of the future from a personal finance perspective the current job losses will make it more difficult for many to retire and schedules and children to college make mortgage payments on time even worse you say the sudden economic decline saps our confidence and belief that the economy will recover however as you say you're optimistic well you know I got down I must tell you for the last few weeks and I think I look at it very closely and I realized that I'd become a magnet for people who have problems and there are serious problems who couldn't get along without some help getting through trying to get through the system as much help as I could be I tried to be that but over all of them the historic perspective on America is that we get through these things so painful for one on one individually but America gets through that and well the market you know do I really think the market's going straight up from here actually no but it doesn't matter what I think my position and my investments are unchanged because I was organized before this started to be able to sleep at night and that's my message to everyone eight number as a woman wrote me a woman I know who said Terry extolled everything in and it was really near the bottom and I went no I hope she didn't get that far from me that's not the way to participate and plan for your future instead think in the calm times now look I'm going to ask each and every listener here right now today we are going to be back over twenty seven thousand might probably twenty seven thousand three hundred within a couple hundred points maybe where we were in January so given this moment right now where you're just about back to even estimate in sell out if that happened again would you be sorry you didn't adjust your position are you determined that this percentage of stocks or these mutual funds are the ones you're gonna ride out to the next twenty twenty five years either you're getting a great opportunity now to readjust your portfolio without too much of a loss put some more in chicken money in cash or you've decided you're sticking it out for the long not but at least think about it don't just say oh well that's over think about where you stand right now how you felt two months ago nothing it'll happen again and whether you have the right amount of exposure to the stock market and another liquidity to be able to sleep at night if in case we have another downturn but could be caused by anything from because the nineteen or something that comes out of the blue we don't know yeah R. what is the next time the unemployment numbers come out they're worse than expected instead of better than expected well Rick footnote on at Bobby this statistics were not rigged I wanna make that very clear not raid but because it because the department bureau of labor statistics came out and said look you guys didn't notice the footnote in there that says we can't change the questions we ask to protect the purity of the data over the years but we obviously miss Kwok account qualified the number of people as on him not as unemployed but is temporarily out they should have been counted as unemployed and if we could readjust the questions and the way we ask them to reflect a very unusual situation of furloughs in PPP and stuff then maybe the unemployment would've been great within a couple of percentage points higher to a world focusing on that not as a matter of something that was done intentionally or skewed by like some kind of a Cup all but because the way the questions are always asked it miscalculated a lot of people as temporarily as employed the furloughed not unemployed so the numbers again and we've never been through something quite like this the one side is going to capitalize and say see everything we did with the PPP act in the stimulus has water through this and out of it on another side it's gonna say we haven't done enough to look at all the people that are still burning and that's going to be resolved I think in November yeah it's a political season Terry savage always good catching up with you Terry have a great day per sheet the time is always thank you give up and let's mention that book again that Terry wrote about today it's called your next chapter a woman's guide to a successful retirement by noted financial planner Alexander Armstrong and psychologist Mary R. Donahue there I let's get you into the newsroom now so you can catch.

"Right Terry savage is joining us right now and the super celebrity hot line Terry savage by the way you know or love her she's a I've been a financial analyst on television and radio for well for as long as the kids here for ever well I you know well maybe people that I started my career as at the first woman trader founding member of the Chicago board options exchange and we really lived in the market actually before that it was a stock broker the first girl at my firm and it was a long long time ago I've been around I've seen this before but nothing like this before right now I have seen this before and I should remind people that you gonna be hosting the Wintrust business lunch tomorrow and Monday and you're gonna represent from the only permanent employment security answering questions with you tomorrow right yeah this is pretty exciting you know this whole unemployment situation what it what a big deal they had to deal with on their website our office is closed and all of that so Rebecca Cisco of ID at the director is coming on and I solicited questions don't send me anymore I'm overwhelmed but I think I've got the gist of what everybody wants me to ask and I'm gonna pop amount to a ceiling gets answered here okay all right so we'll get some phone calls for you as well here three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred but let me start with the stock market and I I'm I'm trying not to be negative here because I because we have to be hopeful and we have to everybody's kind of pushing the same direction here as well as many people who we can get to push in the same direction be optimistic as possible but I see irrational exuberance on the stock market here because I don't know how these businesses if you've got one out of five people who are employed two months ago are now unemployed how do we have a V. recovery which I think is what the stock market is telling us they're anticipating yeah I I don't have a good answer for you we are on the S. and P. five hundred back to where we were a year ago today now back to where we were in January but back to where we were a year ago today and I think the only thing that can account for it is either the emotion that says oh my gosh we'll pick right up which worries me the way it worries you or the sense that there is so much money floating around you remember money's what moves markets and there's just didn't I mean I know it's supposed to go to people you know so they can pay the rent or mortgages within that doesn't quite hold true and there's just so much liquidity flooding the system even though it's draining out the bottom you know we talked about that that I think that's part of what's moving the market up but the smart money you know I've listened to himself for a long time Warren Buffett none of them think anything's a bargain now I don't either Warren Buffett especially was a couple weeks ago we had that he did this virtually he has the Berkshire Hathaway meeting every so it's always on Kentucky Derby weekend which data and that's why I can't attend by the way during his wondering but it's in Omaha and it's you know they call it you know about the test or whatever this this this year he talked about getting out of all the transportation you talked about getting out of trains and and planes whether it's going or the airlines themselves and that's a that they really did smoke detector well yes all billions worth of stock now look you know everybody could be wrong because that was basically this is a virtual your you know what it cost to all high in terms of revenues that all those accolades didn't come to the city but for the meeting that you know he could be wrong I just you know remember two weeks ago I had the bull and the bear debate on on WGN I will host it one day and we had Dr Bob Froehlich who said Terry by the end of the year the doll B. thirty thousand and I thought my god what's he smoking but and I listen to the bear who said look this economy isn't going to pick up it's not going to open up that easily there's too many too much damage done to many people out of work and that means a dog going down to fifteen thousand well so far it's headed right back up here I I don't know what it will take except maybe and I don't want this to be the case maybe another round of of illnesses you know at this time that's not what it takes what it'll also be predicated on the type of recovery I wanted to phone calls here I'll stop you hammering but it's the temperate covering that people are going to see it's it's not just not just whether or not people get sick it's whether businesses can rebound what the earnings look like in the third in the fourth quarter I think that's that's that's the the great great great unknown I had to get to the phone three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred here is Tom you're on WG and good time well thank you for taking my call roll the less time I saw you was at the toys are tax that and we convention center better times my friend yes they sure were real quick concerning the stock market I in a lot of people are concerned about of the federal reserve's kind of like the one which way they're going and Jerome Powell I hope he's not the fox watching the henhouse because supposedly they're looking into buying derivatives and other products that they normally shouldn't be dying and I'm I'm worried we're already enough fire straits but long term we we don't need another nineteen twenty nine in other words yeah Terry what what was already see the way understand the way money gets created it is not printing presses in Washington the federal reserve is a separate distinct organization really representing the nation's banks and they have the job of keeping inflation under control and employment up to par and that's our dual mandate in the tool they have they used at least call job warning they could talk about it you know you guys have to stop thinking about inflation or whatever but the big thing they have is something called open market operations and for ever and ever and ever until twenty oh eight the thing that said could do is go out into the open market remember we haven't at twenty something trillion dollars worth of IOUs treasury bills notes and bonds trading out there the fed could go out in the open market called the big money center banks and say I want to buy you know six hundred million a billion or whatever it is of the two year treasury note and when they bought them when the fed bottom they would pay the bank with newly created money I used to joke when it was Paul Walker nobody ever asked him to put his driver's license number on the back of the check create the money to buy those securities but forever it was only government securities twenty away twenty oh nine a crisis was so deep Hey what mortgage backed securities not the government securities what kind of mortgage backed securities that was a shock and this time around they have literally said we're just about going to buy anything where they've drawn a line although some speculate they might would be ETFs or stocks or something if the market were crashing and the idea that this that the chairman said we will create an unlimited amount of money to keep this thing going well by commercial papers of the penny market funds are fine we're going to buy bonds even municipal bonds perhaps so the municipal park I use from states like Illinois can get sold and they can borrow money so the idea that that's going to create an unlimited supply of money is pretty bullish for the stock market matter of fact and that's why I think you see the market going up despite the fact that we don't know what the economy a look like that I think they do they think Santa Claus is in town they're not just sure where he is what what door he's behind Terry savage will be right back with you and the phone calls through into ninety one seventy two hundred if you have financial questions you want to look into the future you would like a crystal ball Terry this coaster crystal balls we have learned that it has her eyes not a crystal ball but on the traffic.

"Seven twenty WGN John here today for G. should be here on the Wintrust business lunch and we're gonna jump right into things no messing around Terry savage who comes in on Wednesdays normally joining us on a Monday morning with the Dow Jones down about six point four percent nearly seventeen hundred points Terry not a great day to chat with you but maybe it is the best day for you to help us out here today well you and I talked about this G. and I've talked about this this is not unexpected except to the people who thought the bull market would go on forever right it's not the economy is not going on forever and it's boom and that's the main reason this is happening today in the stock market I think it's obviously been corona virus fears that have really led the up and down over the last week today though you get the mix with the oil can you explain it like I'm a fifth grader here why this is so volatile today one of our system can it sort of **** the bubble of Happy Days but the oil crisis is another interesting situation I was the Saudis just look at the Russians instead Hey you know what we're not going to support oil prices anymore we're going to cut prices in the face of the demand around the world collapsing think about it not only our planes not taking off and cruise ships not using fuel oil but China has been you know down to about fraction of its usual use of energy for the last month or so so there's very little demand and the Saudis have cut prices and are increasing supply the real victims of not the Russians who they are undercutting although that'll impact them or the Saudis who obviously figure they can afford to do this but many U. S. oil energy energy companies who happen to have high yield you better be careful because those dividends are going to disappear and maybe some of them won't be able to refinance their bonds to the energy sector down dramatically oil under thirty two dollars a barrel that's part of it I imagine for a lot of folks out there that you know if you're not retiring for ten or fifteen years just don't even look at your four oh one K. there's really not much to do I assume that's the correct answer for those that are warning for awhile to find some conservative place to hide some money under fifteen years and more than do it for years well I feel for and I've been talking to the people just a few years from retirement or in retirement you need to are no longer going to be contributing one to retired and also need to take root withdrawals that are required and and H. seventy two now so those people have a great need for liquidity I also like to say that we're seeing something unprecedented in the interest rate markets John we've got that treasury ten year treasury was down to zero point three four percent it's now back up over a half a percent these bonds were trading yielding a close to two percent not very long ago so everybody around the world with cash is coming to the U. S. and saying what's the safest place in the world I'll buy US treasuries that pushes up prices up and rates down yields down to having a lot of unusual things happening and I think the one days and plan on it said it's not over yet it could last a lot longer than you think and now it's you don't want to jump into it middle of this either on the buy or to sell side right quick question this is just random I had I think I've heard about these circuit breakers in place I can't remember what was the last time these have gone off the circuit breakers in twenty ten we had a a circuit breaker issue I mean we we had the mark we have something called the flash crash in hindsight which was a technical thing and they always hit circuit breakers but after that they changed them and so we only had the first circuit breaker today the market was down seven percent just shortly after the opening it went down over eighteen hundred points and may pause trading for two fifteen minutes yes it drops another thirteen percent don't have another part will get there but there are three actual circuit breakers just to give the market a chance to catch its breath for a second yeah that's good advice for the rest of us Terry savage as always thanks for stopping by in a gender through this okay glad to be with you all right let's take a look at the weather's departure was going to be a cloudy skies windy mild as could be some showers around today a high around fifty nine degrees were fifty three right now on Wall Street the Dow was down sixteen.

"Terry savage with us let's go ahead and take a call this is Kathy on the line hi Kathy what's your question for Terry savage hi Kerry I love your straight forward and vice I have a questions about eight months ago I purchased Cresco LAMP stack the popular Chicago marijuana company been all over the papers they moved to Wrigleyville blah blah the stock is doing terrible and besides the founder stepping down yesterday I don't understand one marijuana stocks is so high can I call Cresco and say what's going on you know if I don't mean to laugh but the fact is that companies that are publicly traded have to fully disclose all information immediately that to the public all at once that's not the kind of thing where you it would be if they told you something that they didn't tell the world it would be considered inside information so in general every public company has to disclose everything that's what the securities analysts and investors do is analyze that information I haven't followed the stock I haven't actually followed the pot stocks I thought it was kind of a fad and I don't typically come in an individual stocks but the idea that you could learn something that others don't know is unlikely what you might want to do is just Google the company and see what is there must be some securities analysts following the company that are commenting today on this news that's how you'll get your your best in Alicante how do I find a security analyst that just how line Google the stock go on this is C. N. B. C. dot com and you can okay it's publicly traded company put in the symbol or put in the name get the symbol and you'll find a lot of information about that any individual stock Kathy thanks for your call yet again how proactive Kathy is right Terry but here's our a a text question from the two to four ugh I sold it last week like halfway through the big drop I worry it will drop some more what do I do now well that this is you know this is not to be done out of emotion which is why you know Gee we've been talking about for a month more than a month and that if you're close to retirement take some profits off the table protect your profits kind of thing you're having a rally today it's up seven hundred fifty points I don't have the specifics but I guess right now the Dow is down only about ten percent from its high now what could come along everybody knows things are being canceled everything from sort of template baseball games to conventions Chicago is going to be hit hard by just a loss in the restaurant show there's gonna be a lot more business impact do you think the markets fully pricing that in what do you think that the market's gonna get scared again when something else happens it's not a question of trading your account it's deciding how much exposure you want to the ups and downs of potential ups and downs of the market it really is old enough to be comfortable that's okay put it in the bank in the money market deposit accounts you get the chance today if you think I was wrong we had a twelve hundred point rally on Monday we have an eight hundred point rally today so we're not down that much from the high so either this is your chance to sell more we think of selling your star you have a pile of cash either way it's your money well it relates to that person that question you said that everyone has to ask themselves about their own personal situation and their risk tolerance so here is a question from the two one nine I am sixty eight years old and married to my seventy year old husband we have rebalanced our portfolio to match our risk but now we want to increase the cash in our portfolio what percentage of cash should we have my dad all depends who you're talking about your investment portfolio I don't know what other savings you have outside this is the time when a professional who can take some perspective on your personal situation is so helpful not somebody trying to sell.

"Well at Terry savage dot com where she puts up a different column each week. And this one Terry was very sad. I mean it was it was a hard one to write in usually I like to be the person with answers and what this did was raise questions. You know, the baby boomer, boomer generation has a new nickname it's now being called the loneliest generation, and the Wall Street Journal reports said about one in eleven Americans age fifty or older lacks, a spouse or partner or living child like this eight million people. And that will grow, of course as boomers age, and I hear from my readers from television WGN on Wednesday mornings in from listeners here questions that are so poignant because if you are. It's not about poverty being older and porous a real issue or dependent totally on social security. But I'm talking about even people who have some assets of expect to be able to carry them through their lifetime. Maybe even leave a little to someone. But, but the real problem, people have is, they don't have someone they can trust. I'm if I could clone myself into a thousand people, I would be that person for women, especially who are in the seventies and eighties. We'll men could use fail to. I know I just have a special affinity for the women live longer, and they're more of them out there that are alone, and they have to make decisions. I'll give you some ideas that it's not just financial decisions. But if you have a healthcare power of attorney, let's say that there's a woman that I know asked me, this few months back, we went through this, she's alone. Her husband died. She wound up. She's ruining a condo from some people who also live in the building. And because she has a niece that's far away. It seems sensible for her because. She likes these people. They've, she's been there awhile to give her landlord's literally her healthcare, poverty. But then what about your, your estate plan, you have a secular for you will, or better, yet, a trustee for your revoke c-a-b-a, living trust if that same? And that's probably somebody want to leave money to. So if that same person, also, as your healthcare, power of attorney, you know, you've created some strange incentives to show what you're saying, is if you're giving someone the, the power of. Turning off the machines. You also inherit the money. Yeah. That's a problem. That's a problem and. What do you do? Then. And, and do you get a stranger? You can get your lawyer to become your executive your will because a loyal, get paid eventually gonna put will through probate that's charges a state. Those face a revoke living, trust, you name a successor trustee, and who is it that, if you're incapacitated, you can't pay your own bills, you, you know, you might have to move into an assisted living who, if you don't have anyone, do you trust not to rip off your money that living will? That's something you give your doctor and say, I don't want any extraordinary measures taken, but just being alone in the hospital when your senior being alone in an apartment, those are really tough situation hit some interesting advice. We've got about a minute left, but you said get into a system living early, and it wasn't because of the care. It was because of the society of it. The fact is uh give you three quick points, number one. If you know, you're going to have to make that move do it sooner while you can socialize my grandmother. And she called me said, they won't talk to me here. I waited too. Who long I've met her in an apartment in my building. Because with, with caregiver so that, that really is. Number one is you make these plans early have to clean out your basement, especially if no one to leave it to number to form a group of friends, not only women your own age or men, but your own age. But see if you can include some younger women who are going to be faced with this in the future, who you might trust you don't wanna lean on them for everything. But who do you call in the middle of the night? If you have to go to the hospital. These are things to start thinking about if you're alone without family or a spouse, that's nice columnist, Terry savage dot com. So check that people to post on my blog, if they have better ideas, because I don't have the answers to this, but I know it's a growing. Listen, I've known this woman for ten years, or so, I'd have never heard Terry savage say, I don't know so many times it because it's it's an overwhelming problem, and I, I know women, they were always independent, they always had jobs and careers. But all of a sudden, who helps it's the wintrust business lunch on seven twenty.
