That's what I was looking for Moof. No need to qualify. Exploit the sh1t out of that rediculous match.
I didn't mean to exclude anyone. I just didn't want this to turn into a hot stock of the day thread.
If I have nothing through my employer, and want to"start" something on my own, what should I do?
Roth vs Traditional IRA's, can someone explain why I have/need both? lol. Looking for a simple explanation, I googled it but it gives me a headache.
What I've been using for quite some time is Ford Interest Advantage (used to be called Ford Money Market Account)
It's not FDIC insured though, but they pay a very good interest rate. The money is slightly more liquid than a savings account IMO because you can write checks (and they give you free checks), but there's not debit card access.. But they have e-transfers / ach and all that stuff.
I went with smarty pig. Seemed the simplest and had a good rate.
What's smarty pig? I need to throw some cash in a liquid account.
Nice rate. I have some monies in a Chase savings account (emergency fund really) that has a rediculous rate. I think I'm going to start an account with Pig and move it there.
What are people doing for investments outside of retirement approaches? (401(k), IRAs, etc.)
I've been mostly in index funds, bonds, and a few individual stocks the past few years. Wondering if there are other areas I should look into.
What do you guys use for investing? I use Schwab. Not sure how much I like it really.
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
