Surprise Friday – Guess Our Chicago Guest

In these tough economic times it’s important for Main Street to learn the ways of Wall Street. And who better to bridge that gap than our surprise guest, CNBC’s Suze Orman!

You might know her as an Emmy award winning expert on all things money. But did you know she hails from the south-side of Chicago?

And it’s that Midwest “can do” spirit that’s helped make her America’s reigning queen of green. In fact, Time magazine recently named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Suze Orman has single handedly revolutionized the way people think about money and truly is a one-woman financial powerhouse by appealing to real people investors.

“And real people are having a hard time affording gas, or a meal out or just holding onto their homes,” she tells the Fast Money traders. I recommend taking the bull by the horns. It’s time for normal investors to profit from the same trends that are benefiting the big guys on Wall Street."

What do you like, Suze?

I recommend ETF’s for normal investors. My favorite is iShares S&P Global Mat. Sector Index.

And because I think normal people should play the run in steel I also recommend the SPDR S&P Metals and Mining .
