The Ultimate Cash-Management Guide / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: DailyWealth

As regular readers know, we suggest holding cash in an emergency fund and in your portfolio. If you've followed our advice, you likely have tens, and maybe hundreds, of thousands of dollars in cash.

It’s Hard to Be Broke and Happy at the Same Time / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: Editorial Note: There's no ignoring what's happening in the markets today. Global fears have sent U.S. stocks into a free fall. Of course, we're not going to pretend it's the best of times. But, as Alex has advised in the past, now is not the time to try and time the markets. In his words, "Nobody rings a bell at the top of the market. So the amateur lurches about and suddenly gets out... then finds that stocks keep going up without him." As we write, the Dow is already up 338 points from this morning's low. So keep that in mind as your fellow investors run screaming into the streets.

A new report from Bankrate.com reveals that more Americans than ever are saving nothing for retirement.

Game Theory and Retirement Choices / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dan_Amerman

Game theory is a hot topic in many fields right now and for good reason - it can uncover better ways of making decisions, that are often otherwise missed. A particularly good example is the uncommon insights that game theory can deliver for us when it comes to making better retirement decisions.

For our decision-making "game", let's say there is a $1 million pool of money to be split between you and nine other people. If you wait until the end of ten years to cash out - you and everyone else are promised that you'll be equally entitled to $250,000 each.

Regular Saving Accounts to the Rescue of Savers / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Research by Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that savvy savers who use regular savings accounts for their short-term savings goals are reaping the rewards, earning more interest than with any other standard savings account.

Savings rates have been obliterated in recent years, but regular savers have remained relatively unscathed; Best Buy deals have stayed on top for the last two years and average rates have resisted a dramatic downward spiral.

How Much Cash Should You Hold? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2015

By: DailyWealth

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: "How much cash do you have at home?" I once asked a friend who is an extremely smart investor and businessman.

(The question wasn't too personal... He's a good friend and we talk about money. I had dinner with him at his home earlier this month in California.)

"I keep six figures at home," he replied.

Bank Current Account Overdraft Fees Hit a High, Attacking Careful Customers / Personal_Finance / Current Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Research by Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that considerate customers who plan their authorised overdraft are being rewarded with higher fees, while those who fall into an unauthorised overdraft are seeing their costs reduce.

Providers traditionally charged interest on the amount customers borrowed in their overdraft, but in recent years other fees, such as usage fees, have been introduced. These fees sit either alongside the usual interest rate or in its place, and are designed to make bank charges clearer.

NISAs – Not that Nice After All / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: MoneyFacts

A year ago George Osborne increased the ISA allowance to a whopping £15,000, enabling savers to stash more money away tax-free.

However, a year on and the ISA market is just as disappointing. In fact, since the launch of the NISA, rates have fallen ever further, with the average ISA rate dropping from 1.57% in July 2014 to just 1.44% today.

Are Roth IRA Owners Likely To Be Subject To Double Taxation? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dan_Amerman

Roth Individual Retirement Accounts are an uncommonly attractive and powerful method of creating wealth for retirement when viewed from the usual financial perspective. What sets them apart is that contributions are made with after-tax dollars, but withdrawals are made on a tax-free basis – which is the reverse of most other retirement accounts.

This is among the reasons why Roth IRAs are enormously popular with many millions of retirement investors in the United States and why they are so widely recommended by financial planners, CPAs and many other financial professionals.

Budget 2015 - New 7.5% Tax on Dividends, Government Targets Small Limited Company Owners / Personal_Finance / UK Tax & Budget

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst most eyes are on the deep tax credits cuts that amount to an average of £2k for 4 million households from April 2016 onwards. The Chancellor also announced changes to the taxation of dividends which will impact on small company owners who through limited companies currently are able to vastly reduced their tax bills through by a minimal salary so as to soak up the annual £10k tax free allowance and then pay the reminder of upto an additional £30k in dividends without paying any extra tax, due to the 10% dividend tax credit rule i.e. that for basic rate tax payers no additional tax is due on dividend income.

Working Child Tax Credit Cuts Average £2k per Household From 2016-17 / Personal_Finance / UK Tax & Budget

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As expected the Chancellor George Osborne took a hatchet to the Labour legacy Working and Child Tax Credits system that had mushroomed from an initial budget of £2 billion a year to £30 billion today, succeeding in creating a pool of some 4 million vested interest families and acting as a huge inducement for a 15 year long mass immigration trend into Britain which remains out of control as illustrated by the most recent immigration statistics (+318k).

Current Accounts Become a Salvation for UK Savers / Personal_Finance / Current Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Rachel Springall, Finance Expert at Moneyfacts.co.uk, comments:

“In the past, current accounts paid less favourable rates of credit interest than standard savings accounts, but today, things couldn’t be more different.

“Savers can earn over three times more interest using a current account compared with the best easy access account on the market.* For this reason, it wouldn’t be surprising if savers flock to these accounts and abandon standard savings accounts altogether.
