No. It is just financial porn. None of us can accurately predict the future.

I made the foolish mistake of signing up for a free trial (which was a waste of reading time) and have been unable to get the Motlley Spammer to stop sending me their once in a lifetime offers twice a day.

Budgeting is a skill practised by people who are bad at politics.
