Dow Jones Industrial Average Today Continues Historic December Slump as Shutdown Looms

The Dow Jones Industrial Average continues to bleed red as investors pour out of stocks and flock to bonds in the wake of the Federal Reserve's decision to hike interest rates this week.

How Three Simple Steps Could Make You Your First Million

Maybe you're already trading successfully, or you're just about to take that all-important step, but – either way – I want to pass along a few important pieces of wisdom from one of my longtime mentors.

Yep. That's right. I'm a self-made millionaire, but I didn't get here all by myself – I had a lot of help along the way.

And while it may seem impossible to become a millionaire – it's actually easy to do.

But before we get into the three simple steps to making your first million, I want to share something with you about Arthur that you might not know…

I met him back in 1983, when I was working my way through college at a small little company Arthur founded called The Home Depot. Back then, there were only a handful of stores, so he used to come in at night with a bunch of pizzas and help us stock the shelves.

And it was then that he shared with me the secrets to his success...

The Dow Jones today is trying to rebound from a Wednesday rout that followed the unsurprising decision by the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates.

Investors remain extremely grim about the prospects of the Fed's plans to hike rates two more times in 2019.

The hike comes at a time when the central bank reduced its growth estimates for the U.S. economy.
