Radio Show #137 – Jordan Goodman,
“America’s Money Answers Man”

In Jordan Goodman’s February visit, he analyzes the latest huge rise and drop in the Dow.

Is it historic?  Or just the market “self correcting”?

Jordan also presents an investment alternative to both the volatility of the stock market, and the underperforming vehicles offered by banks.

Finally, Jordan goes over the Bitcoin kick investors have seized upon.

It is all here, exclusively, with Jordan Goodman and Brad Shepard on Pioneer Valley Radio!
