Back with a fresh week of Top Links, and the first edition of Top Links that I’m sharing as a 29 year old. I’m very optimistic and excited for everything the last year of my 20’s is going to bring!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Money in the Right Places: Retiring Before Your 60’s’ – Mullooly Asset Podcast
- In this week’s episode, the guys discuss why having all your assets tied up in retirement accounts can complicate retiring early. They breakdown why having both pre and post tax assets is so crucial for those in their late 50’s and early 60’s.
‘The Bond Market is Talking’ – Michael Batnick – The Irrelevant Investor
- As Michael puts it, interest rates are the lifeblood of a country’s economy. Right now, both interest rates and the bond market are talking, and people should listen.
‘Here’s What You Need to Know if You Want to Start Investing’ – Michelle Fox – CNBC
- With stocks continuing to push up on new highs, it continues to be a tempting time for new investors to try their luck. This post outlines what new investors need to know before putting any money at risk.
