    This is the stupidest advice ever. Bonds are shit, FDIC is shit etc. Anything backed by a broke ass government is shit. I'd rather stash my cash in a tree house in the middle of the woods than to put it in a bank. I would never risk the bank holding my money in turn for thier interest peanuts they pay to have it there. And the online crap? Just a matter of pushing a few buttons, and poof, all your money is gone. No way can this guy truly be a financial advisor.

    I would be telling people to put their money in a Broker Account and study the movements of Penny Stocks that have $1 Billion or more in Sales. Among all Penny Stocks these are the ones that I've backtested that may pay as much as 2,800% return on your money. See, the price of ticker symbol (NIHD) back Dec. 2017 out to 8 short months later. Use Finvizdotcom as your research Platform to find these Gems. There aren't many of them, but these are among the ones that can provide you with mind-blowing returns on your money. Take this one idea with you to the Stockmarket and you'll be fine, but don't forget this Idea and apply it to Penny Stocks. "Mr. Wonderful on the TV Show, "Shark Tank" says, "I like pouring my money on the Gasoline that is Sales". I.E., Mr. Wonderful likes pouring his money on money and that money in relation to stocks usually reveals itself in the Sales of a Business, not always, but most of the time.

    I lost you at the photo of Steve Mnuchin, US Secretary of the Treasury. First. a correction: FDIC will not help regular banking customers. Banks are obligated to pay off the $$$$ derivative holders before they ever get to regular customers. So, thos who hold bank accounts are screwed! Time to become your own bank via cryptocurrencies. I began learning about blockchain tech 3+ years ago–on my own at age 62. I pulled out the money from my bank and bought Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin which I continue to hold offline in my own possession. Took profits from initial investment, bought some silver and paid off all debt. Crypto still pretty new and this tech is going to be astounding! Ditch legacy banks as fiat is inflating faster than a speeding train. My crypto will be secure through upcoming SHTF world financial collapse caused by Mnuchin's Federal Reserve and the criminal central banks. I continue to hodl and cost-average in for more as I can. The crypto market is wildly undervalued right now.

    Banks to hold your money, any banks, read this, so did you know under us law that as soon as you put your money into a bank they own the funds and you now would be classifed as an unsecured creditor. Most people are not aware of this law, so the law is called the Dodd-Frank Wall st. Reform Act where if a bank falls on hard times thats it baby say goodbye to your bucks forever. And don't think that the fdic insurance is going to bail you out either, because they donot have enough money to pay all the bad loans the bad stock trades when the crash comes, you would be lucky to get .25 on the dollar. Only one bank I know will not be affected and they are the North Dakota Bank you are protected and the money will still be there after the crash.

  26. Nick Kingston says:

    Those rates are laughable, grow weed

  27. ELK says:

    If you've ever actually read the fine print on the FDIC insurance agreement you'll laugh like I do when you hear anyone talking about how safe FDIC banking is. And all you have to do to verify that is to go back and look at what happened when The Fed crashed the economy circa 1929 for those who have done their homework on the Great Depression. Long lines of people demanding their money who nearly all went home empty handed.

    Or perhaps the financial crisis of 2008 is more noteworthy to some given that it is more recent history. Either event was planned but I'll cover that topic at another time and place.

    By the way, most people in banking have never read the fine print on that FDIC insurance agreement. So many in banking actually believe it's legit.

    There's simply not enough actual cash in the economy to cover even 10% of the money on deposit in all the financial institutions that are so often touted as being so safe. You might as well believe in Santa Claus.

    And that's on top of the fact that banks never give you an interest rate which exceeds inflation (much less anywhere even close to inflation) and I'm talking about real inflation not the phony government numbers that are paraded out to the public via the sewer stream media. Even investing in real estate is smarter than putting your money in a bank or credit union at least as long as no one is planning on crashing the economy again.

    If you're not earning at least 12% on your money then what you're doing is screwing yourself. And there are ample opportunities where you can easily outperform that 12% with say 25% or higher and do so consistently if you stay on top of that game. That's actually pretty easy.

    In fact, right now, you can earn 25% starting out with less than $300 and you can move up to 49%+. That 49%+ is for an extremely limited number of people and it'll be gone in a couple months, if not sooner, with over 99% of the public ever even getting wind of it.

    That's just an example that there are much better deals than 12% interest available but you have to be in the know and very few of those offers ever meet the ears of the average person because the average person isn't a savvy investor.

    Slaves are always told to play it safe and banksters love to see another fool coming in to put money in a regular savings account because that's how the fractional reserve banksters butter their bread. And I should know having come from that system.

    There are investment scammers out there. One needs to look no further than Bernie Madoff and see that he actually made off with the vast balance of the money he conned people out of. And you can probably go to Vegas and put money down on the fact that even Federal investigators will never recover the money Madoff made off with.

    In fact, I can show you how use the lottery system to earn extra money for yourself while avoiding the risk of playing the lottery. But that's for another time and place as well.

Because those that used to control the central banks and are still trying today (2-17-19) have the goal of robbing you blind and then killing you. Sad but true. Stay out of crypto currencies. just like real estate… when they have enough suckers out there, they pull the plug. you have zero recourse no matter what they do. if you need to save, keep it in some real goods… real estate is not one of them. The title to all your property by the way lists you as the "tenant". Check it out ! That is why they can take it away for non-payment of taxes because it is not even yours. Just be careful and do not become too attached to your money. it is much more beneficial in the long run to become attached to helping humanity. 120,000 people die daily of preventable causes. Help them ! Make friends on facebook in other countries where these people are living and support them. Most countries live on 1/50th or less what we do. that means if you can send them $100 a month, in many cases they can stay with their family and raise happy children. This is the best thing people can offer for the future of this world. Happy children = Happy future. No criminals can defeat happiness. unless a criminal cabal can convince people to be afraid and that abuse is normal, they will have no power at all. after all there are more than 1,000,000 good people for each of them. it is pure hoax. they have zero power when people know this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6b70TUbdfs

  36. Me And You says:

    If you trust the bank with your money, just let your neighbors hold on to it instead. People are going to lose everything just like in 1929… don't think that the federal is going to insure your money, they will tell you that they are broke also. People think they make money in their savings, but on the other hand they are paying interest on everything they own, cars home, furniture c.card n on n on. Pay cash for everything if you can, n you be making money. Don't forget that you have to pay taxes on your interests the banks pay you. My bro in law never bought on credit, when he retired he owned many properties and all paid for. The down fall was that he couldn't co-sign for his son because he had no credit, that's a blessing to me. In the 60s the banks were paying 5% n more in just regular savings, now you almost have to pay them.

    Attention everyone. The best possible way to invest money instead of saving it is converting it to silver and gold. The dollar loses value each year and silver and gold gain value. Not to mention that silver and gold appreciate during recessions due to being seen as safe haven assets when stocks lose value. Not to sound like a tin foil hat guy but there are a lot of warnings about a looming recession in the near future. The auto industry is failing, housing prices are dropping across the board, and there’s less demand for houses. Americans owe 1.5 trillion in credit card debt. 76% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. I think we will see gold and silvers prices rise dramatically during a depression, which is why I have been going all out investing in silver in particular. There are amazing YouTube videos you can find talking about this better than me. I firmly believe these will be the best investments of my life

    If you're going to do online banking, avoid Chime. Their customer service sucks. Chime is fee free, but if shit hits the ceiling fan, you want to know you can trust your bank to resolve the issue. Chime, from what Ive read from complaints, is very incompetent when it comes to protecting your money. Not only does it seem ridiculously east for people all the way in other states to somehow have access to your bank account through your card number, despite the fact that your card isnt lost or stolen, when you file a dispute, you cant trust Chime to resolve your issue. Ive read complaints where customers have said that Chime basically told the customer to resolve the issue themselves. Chime is so unprofessional, they'll put you on threeway with a merchant to get your issue resolved. I had Chime bank, and no more than a week after opening my chime account, immediately after giving my employer my information to for direct deposit, my account was compromised. Someone tried to buy jewelry at a jewelry store with my account information. Thank god I had no money in the account at the time, so the transaction didn't go through. I called Chime and asked them to change my account information and they told me that they couldn't. I asked if it was possible to just shut down my chime account all together, and they refuse to close your account. So once you have a chime bank account opened, you're stuck with them forever. You CAN NOT close a chime account. Needless to say, I never put any money into that bank, and I think I dodged a bullet, because customers of Chime have said that they have lost a lot of money due to fraudulent activity that chime failed to resolve. Your money is definitely not safe with Chime, and I was lucky to have dodged that bullet by not losing any money, because if you happen to lose any money with Chime, you can kiss that money goodbye. From the complaints Ive read, you will never get that money back. Now… What I find odd, is this. With all of the complaints, somehow the people who had their money stolen, have said that the money was taken because who ever the thief is, has access to their bank account through their card. One girl said that her card number was used in two different states, in the same hour. With me, My card was used at a jewelry store… However… In both our cases, our cards were in our possession. HOW did they get our card number? With me, I only had the damn card for a week, and never showed it to anyone, never lost it, or misplaced it. Now I have a conspiracy…. I think Chime employees, or who ever has access to these cards before they are shipped out, copies card information to use later. So according to my theory, the chime employees cant be trusted. Ive never had this issue with bank of america, with random people suddenly having your debit card information, despite the fact that your card is on you and you've never shown anyone your card. So Chime debit cards are not secure, and someone people are, random people from all over the country, are able to access your account through your card number, despite your card being safely in your possession. I was looking to leave Bank of america, because I was sick of their fees. Thats how I found Chime. I liked chime until I ran into a security issue with my account immediately after opening it, and already having someone try to steal money. Then, according to other customer complaints, if someone DID steal my money, I was just going to be fucked, because Chime was not going to handle the situation properly.

It will build good dicipline on your end and also, you make an extra yearly payment without any effort on you! But hear is what you can do is make sure that any extra payments goes to you principles!

    Another suggestion is that if you are not maxing out your Roth IRA, you should consider saving your money in a Roth. The ETF bond funds you mentioned could be used, as well federal money market funds. A vanguard brokerage account Roth IRA would have minimum investment of the price of one share and most ETFs, even non-Vanguard ETFs, trade free on Vanguard's brokerage. Your post-tax contributions to your Roth IRA can be withdrawn without penalty, but its tax-free earnings cannot until you are retirement age. So it could serve as your emergency fund while earning tax free retirement income. The downside would be using up your yearly maximum contribution, but if you weren't fully funding anyway that might not be a problem. Ease of access would be about the same as the online savings accounts you mentioned. ( I would also look at Fidelity, but their selection of no fee ETF trades is smaller than vanguard's)

Should we cash them in early and invest in something else or just leave them alone?

    Wrong, the money sitting in a savings account is making the bank a lot of money because they make you (and millions of other people) believe that you are "doing the right thing by saving" or some other similar punchline but in reality, cash, as coins, the real deal, is worth a LOT more in the long run simply because the world is becoming cashless. If some power station overloads or gets hacked, and the electric goes out for a few hours, sheer madness ensues, but if you got the cash, you are king. (unless you get whacked for it)

    Thanks for the great video. Can you or someone tell me what is the difference between a online savings vs a online Cash account. The reason I ask is online I found Wealthfront online that offers a stunning 2.57% rate for your cash account. I was with Ally forever but after dropping the rate to 2.10% I searched and found this incredible rate and maybe the highest out there? Is the Cash account the same as savings account?
