    When you say up $2611.54, do you mean from the end of september’s video? Cuz in that video your portfolio total was $14104.08. So 16051.42-14104.08= 1947.34, not the $2611.54 you are saying

    Sadly I will never marry someone like the lady in this video: a smart lady. I'm too much of an asshole. I get too irritated. And i have zero empathy. I'll probably be a millionaire. I love this channel. I'll do the same: move to southern Europe as a millionaire.

    You two are awesome! I’ve watched most of your videos since I discovered your channel about 10 months ago. With your help, I’ve paid off debt utilizing the debt snowball, opened a Robinhood account and a Roth IRA account… The best thing I got out of 2020! Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!

    Does anyone know how to see the view they are pulling up in fidelity?

    July 31, 2021 at 12:04 am

    How do I see if I’m being charged a fee? I’m on Robinhood and don’t see anywhere that I’m being charged

    I have bout 30 different stocks and funds on my roth ira and in my individual brokerage account I have about 7 stocks/funds which i treat as savings account just throwing money in every pay. Am I doing it wrong?

    Hi. Would anyone know the answer? In my Fidelity acct, I put in 200 into TSLA. The receipt shows exactly that. However, when I go into my acct and verify balances, it shows as 199.70. I have .30 (“settled cash”). Why is this?

    I have some money sat in the traditional ira account for 10 year and never be touched. Is it better to put into market all at once or put some amount each month until all are putting back into market? Really appreciate some advice.

    With the current uncertainty of US politics how do you decide whether to sell while the market's high or ride a bit longer? Tomorrow could be the day to sell but "we were planning on selling Friday…. oh no!" What then?

    Guys thanks for being transparent with your portfolio. I enjoyed the video and your channel. Question; do have this particular in a taxable or tax deferred account? You mention you have 8 different accounts and with that being said, how many of the 8 are tax deferred? Again this is a very educational channel and I’ve learned allot. Thanks 🙏

    I, along with so many others, live from paycheck to paycheck. I recently discovered your channel and am motivated and excited to start saving and investing money 🙂

    Can you make a video suggesting what percentage % of a paycheck should go to emergency funds, stocks, HSA, eating out, saving for travel, saving up for college, etc? I'm not sure what's realistic but also wise, and I'm seeing you guys as shining gurus ✨

    Hi! I love your channel and it has helped me immensely on my FIRE journey. I had a question. I currently am with Fidelity and I have invested in FZROX, FZILX which are both zero accounts. I also hold FXAIX and FSKAX which charge fees and track the same things. Would it be better to sell these with fees and keep the zero accounts or is there a difference between the two? Please let me know and I appreciate your advice! Best, Jarrett
