Welcome back to another great week of Top Links! We are closing in on the end of the year, so it’s really important to make some good financial decisions these next few weeks and get ready for the new year.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- Over the last few weeks, there has been a shift in message coming from the Fed and chairman Jerome Powell. With new information about inflation coming out, Powell has signaled their willingness to adapt.
- According to a new survey, a lot of parents out there would prefer a contribution to their child’s 529 account instead of a traditional gift this holiday season. Saving for college is extremely important, so it’s interesting to see this non-traditional gift idea being floated around.
- Sometimes you need to learn the lesson the hard way. In this post, Michael outlines the roller coaster ride that is ARKK. Over the last handful of months, this fund has taken its investors for quite the painful ride.
- Over Thanksgiving, Nick was reminded of just how much we tend to circulate inside of our own bubbles. After not hearing a word about cryptocurrency, NFTs, and more at Thanksgiving, Nick urges readers to get outside of their comfortable bubble every once in a while.
