It is the beginning of the 2015 Fourth Quarter and the
stock market has not been universally good this year.
Not going into any of those details, but will point you
to an article about some opportunities that certain
technical professional investors might calculate for
themselves using Turbotax of similar software.

ROTH IRA RECHARACTERIZATION CALCULATION
SOURCE:  L. Saunders, WSJ 10-3-15, “Why it’s prime
time for Roth IRA

Roth IRAs are the “gold standard” of tax sheltered
retirement plans from which withdrawals are presently
tax-free on untaxed gains and after tax contributions.
The issue is in the short term past many investments
lost value.  This article suggests Roth investors might
undo Roth conversions last year or this year and
avoid paying the taxon value that has “vanished”.
Deadline is Oct. 15.  Comments might be helpful
to peruse.

DIGITAL LIBRARY AND OPEN ACCESS
SOURCE:  ECS Open Access
                   Alternative Article Impact
Got my first email from ECS Weekly Digests from two technical
areas that I signed up for.  They inform me of recent publications
that this society reviewed and accepted.  Beyond my expectations
was outstanding other services that will allow me to communicate
better, learn new areas and deepen my understanding of the
practical outcomes of scientific investigations.
Sometimes cartoons in “digital libraries” can be outstanding
in effectively communicating results, impacts and directions.
