Is Atom.Finance a scam?

Now that we are all home in quarantine, I have decided to take a moment to browse through some little known financial apps that I have downloaded on my phone or tablet. When I see an app that is being advertised, I tend to download it from the app store just to try it out for a few days, even if I don’t plan on keeping it. This is when I came across the Atom – Personal Finance App.

How the Rich Are Always Getting Richer

It is a common phrase that is heard around the financial world. People in the middle and lower classes of society complain about how the top 1% of the wealthy are hoarding 99% of the overall wealth. This disproportionate distributions on money is one of the main reasons why the democratic party has such a large following. However, it is easy to complain that they have all the money, but what if we stop and think.. how are the rich getting richer? Would that open the door to allow us to open path to wealth ourselves?

Robert Kiyosaki, a best-selling author and successful entrepreneur, talked about this in one of the most impactful books that I have read in my young life. Years ago, he wrote Rich Dad, Poor Dad which paved the way for thousands upon thousands of entrepreneurs to break their way out of the so-called “rat race”, and begin accumulating real wealth.

How I’m reacting to this volatile stock market | March 2020

Oh boy! What a rollercoaster it has been in the stock market this month! From the Coronavirus, political campaigns, and now a crude oil crisis, this is probably one of the most uncertain times since I began investing in the stock market. In a time where you don’t know what direction the market will go next, what is there for a new investor to do?

Since February 14, 2020, the S&P 500 is down an incredible 19%. These are losses that are comparable to the massive correction that happened at the end of 2017 and approaching the losses that occurring during the Financial Crisis of 2008. However, should that mean that you should stay far away from buying stocks rights now? The answer may surprise you.

Starting a Roth IRA with $12,000

As of the start of 2020, my goal has been to make progress towards getting out of debt, building wealth, and reaching financial freedom. All three of these objectives will take quite a while, but I feel that now is one of the best times to get started on a wealth building journey in the stock market. I am starting on my journey by trying to utilize all of the tax advantaged accounts that are available to me, which includes a Roth IRA.

In this article, I talk about how I started a Roth IRA, what brokerage I am using, why I chose to fund it with $12,000 instead of $6,000, and what I chose to invest in during this time of uncertainty in the stock market.

Starting a WeBull Stock Portfolio with $1,000

The overall stock market in the United States has been in a state of chaos! With the coronavirus making international headlines, it is definitely one of the most volatile markets that I can remember. There is a ton of uncertainty about whether we are about to enter into a recession or if this is just a correction from the longest bull market in history. The future is up for grabs! Who win will? The bears? or the Bulls?

So, here I am thinking to myself. What better thing to do during all of this uncertainty than start a brand new WeBull stock portfolio! I know it may sound crazy, but one of my favorite investors lives by the motto of “being greedy when others are fearful, and being fearful when others are greedy,” and right now there is an abundance of fear around every corner.

Schwab S&P 500 Index Fund (SWPPX): What is it exactly?

Roth IRA vs Traditional IRA: What’s the Difference?

Roth IRA vs Traditional IRA written in the notepad.

Recently, I have been aggressively pursuing the idea of building long term wealth to achieve financial freedom. As I researched different investment vehicles, one investment vehicle popped up over and over again, and that vehicle was an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Now I had pretty much a rough idea of what this account was, but I didn’t know exactly what benefits the account offered, and I especially didn’t know the difference between a Roth IRA vs Traditional IRA.

So what I have done here is put together a list of the similarities and differences between a Roth IRA vs Traditional IRA, the advantages and disadvantages of both of them, and which one I would recommend you get started with as a long term investor.
