Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke’s Latest Speech Fails To Impress Investments Management Advisor Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors

The Federal Reserve seeks to inspire confidence in its ability after having pumped $1 Trillion into our economy, but Americans should question if this unelected, unaccountable official really knows what to do to get our financial system back to good health. “It is obvious that the economy has failed to respond the way they hoped it would,” says Jeff Voudrie, a prominent financial planner in Tennessee.

'The Federal Reserve is failing and investors’ collective trust is diminishing quickly,' says Jeff Voudrie, a financial planner in Tennessee

“The Federal Reserve is in uncharted territory,” pointed out investments management advisor Jeff Voudrie, president of Common Sense Advisors. “It needs to portray that it knows what it is doing to instill market confidence in its ability to restore growth to our economy and get people back to work, but the problem is that it is failing and investors’ collective trust is diminishing quickly,” the financial planner in Tennessee added.

Bernanke indicated in his most recent address that “disappointing” job numbers in October, meant the Fed would not slow down its stimulus, including its continued purchase of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities.

Voudrie and other financial analysts have been unimpressed with the both the strategy and the communication of it. “Surely the most powerful man in the world could hire a communications strategist so that the messages sent to the market are clear and consistent,” he said. “To date, the communication has been anything but. It gives the appearance that they don’t know what they are doing,” he added.

Such questions about leadership and the direction of the Fed’s strategy should give all investors pause, especially the average retiree trying to set up his/her golden years with sound investments. “I hate to say it, but the 1% IS continuing to get richer while the wealth of retirees and working Americans is getting eroded by inflation and taxes,” Voudrie observed.

His application points for the retiree that simply needs sound financial advice?
1.    Beware of who you trust. Don’t believe all the hype and recognize that the risk to your financial future increases on a daily basis.
2.    Don’t be lulled into the belief that the stock market can continue to go up like his has this past year without a major pullback.
3.    Ask: How are you going to protect the profits you’ve gained this year? How will you protect your portfolio when this bubbles pops?

Those who are retired or looking to retire must recognize that they must take a more active role in their retirement investments is they want to have any hope of a successful retirement.
