posted by: alibubu @ Wed Aug 05, 2015 3:37 am
Hj everyone, I am from Vietnam. I studied in technology university, but I am so interested in Forex market, and I began to do it from 2012. Now I understand that I have to study abroad to broaden my knowledge about this field. And I really want to work and live in US.

Need advice on how to live off small life insurance payout
posted by: auntiepam @ Mon Aug 03, 2015 2:39 pm
I'm trying to help my aunt with financial advice. Her husband just passed and she'll get $100K life insurance. She will not qualify for any of his pension, social security, etc. She's only 59, not employed, and only qualifies for low paying jobs. Taking his social security at age 60 will not be enough to pay the bills and will be reduced with the additional income she'll need anyway. It's obvious that she'll have to start working, but it will not be enough to pay the mortgage & bills.

They just purchased a house on a VA loan with no...

5 Things you must know before starting your stock Investing
posted by: bourseindia @ Mon Aug 03, 2015 7:05 am
To what extent Is It Until You Need The Money?

How you contribute cash is affected when period until you have to get to a speculation.

In the event that you require the cash in a year, something more sheltered and secure like a CD or a high premium investment account would be best.

In the event that you needn't bother with the cash for 2-3 years, you could attempt some transient security finances or something more imaginative like contributing with Lending Club.

In the event that you needn't bother with the cash for 5-10 years, ...

How long are bad checks held against you?
posted by: Clgrein @ Sat Aug 01, 2015 4:21 pm
When I was young and dumb I wasn't the best with handling money. I often found myself playing the "I hope I get paid before this clears the bank" game. I usually won , but quite often lost. Now that I'm 15 years older, wiser and more responsible, there are still very few places that will accept my checks. Why is that?

Who keeps the original documents
posted by: nemoryer @ Fri Jul 31, 2015 3:34 pm
Am doing some cleaning up and I forgot what was said after my estate planning documents were drafted many years ago.

Should I have the originals in my possession (I live in WA state) or should my son who lives in MA, and who is Successor Trustee and Executor hold the original copies?

Thank you.

Americans Flocking to China
posted by: 1stworldviews01 @ Thu Jul 30, 2015 3:57 am
Did you know that at the end of 2014 there were almost 600,000 Americans found to be living in China according to a recent a Chinese survey.

Some are taking jobs in the booming economy, some are there for the incredible education opportunities and some are even retiring to China. Whatever the reason, each year China is seeing a growing amount of Americans moving in. This year the country began issuing Visas lasting for 10 years to Americans - previously the Visas lasted only one month. As a result, the United States embassy is offering tour...

College loans
posted by: Freightliner @ Thu Jul 30, 2015 2:22 am
I applied for FAFSA, and just received an email saying I'm eligible. It says I have access to a PELL grant of about 1,500$, and a direct subsidized for 1,750 this semester. What are these kinds of loans and do I need to repay them? I work full time and am starting classes at a community college for the first time this semester. I'm taking two classes. What are some things I should know to be safe financially, and how do these loans work?

Question about real estate for retirement
posted by: kcatagon87 @ Wed Jul 29, 2015 6:44 pm
So I'm an Engineer and my wife is a Nurse. We are 28 & 25. We are wanting to get a jump start on retirement. Right now we are paying down a Condo in Utah. We both decided that our dream retirement home would be near Kalispell, Montana. Other than the Condo we have 0 debt. We also have about $60,000 in savings.

I found a plot of land up there that is about 20 acres for a reasonable price. I wanted to start a mortgage on it and pay it down over the next 10 or so years. This is feasible for us because we live 100% off of my income, and eve...

Visualization Tool, thoughts on if it is any good?
posted by: Opal67 @ Mon Jul 27, 2015 10:49 am
Hi All,

First time posting, wanted some advice about a tool I saw on reddit. This thing called simply wall st https://simplywall.st . I like it as it has data but not in the usual tables, questions:

-It says it uses S&P CapIq for their data, how good is that compared to say Bloomberg/Yahoo?
-I don't understand all of their analysis, especially the discounted cash flow they do. What do you think?
