#RothIRA #PSA The stock market is closed today, but that doesn't mean you can't still fund your own personal Roth IRA. A Roth IRA is a great way to fund your retirement savings in a way that grows tax free and can withdraw tax free after 59.5 years of age. One thing I was surprised to learn along the way was that you can fund the previous year's maximum contribution limit up until Tax Day. So that mSee more

This could be a taxable account or retirement savings account and eSee more

#RothIRA #retirementgoals How do you invest in your Roth IRA? Lump sum, monthly, or bi-weekly? 2022 is around the corner which means i’m focused on reevaluating 2021 and what I'm going to change going into next year. A Roth IRA is a tax-advantaged retirement account, which allows you to withdraw tax-free when you retire. As opposed to a brokerage account like public... where you can pull out money any time... but you pay a capital gains tax. If your goal for investing is retirement, this should be a no-brainer in your investment strategy. You are only allowed to contribute $6000/year... so if you are able to max out your account, I would highly recommend doing that before you invest in a brokerage account. (**If you are late to Roth IRAs don't worry... You have until your tax deadline (April 15th 2022) to contribute towards your 2021 contributions). There are a couple of different investment strategies within a Roth IRA (or traditional IRA): lump-sum investing: some people contribute all $6000 in January at the start of the year. You risk poorly timing the market but in the long term lump sum usually beats DCA. This also assumes you ain’t broke broke 😭 #struggleisreal monthly: invest $500/month (or however much you can afford). You might be averaging up over time but you have more upside than averaging up every week biweekly/weekly: you never have to worry about timing the market... you might decrease your overall return if a bull market continues and you have to average up, but we can never time the next downturn so buying weekly/biweekly ensures that if the market took a downturn you would get in on discounts. ---------- 2021 was my first year of investing. But since I opened my Roth IRA before my tax deadline... I invested a lump sum of $6000 to max my 2020 contribution. I divided it between index funds and some dividend stocks. I then invested $500/month this year to max out my 2021 contributions. Meanwhile, on public, I bought $50 of $VOO every Friday. My S&P fund in my RothIRA massively outperformed my DCA of $VOO here on public. this is because when you DCA you often average up so you don't earn the actual performance of the fund. not to mention... I joined public a couple of months after opening my retirement account... which also contributed to the lower return. ---------- So my question for today is... in 2022 are you doing a lump sum contribution? are you going to contribute monthly? Or bi-weekly as you get paid? ---------- *disclaimer: if you are in the position where you aren’t able to max out a Roth IRA, know that any contribution helps because you can’t go back in the time and contribute to previous years. progress is progress and that’s okay 🙌🏼

💥 Well, here it is, by popular demand, my current monthly investment strategy after maxing out my #RothIRA first for the year. In NO way is this financial advice; this is just what I do.

I went down the rabbithole because I know only so little about this subject. My initial Google search is "Can you have more than one Roth IRA?" 🤣 #rothira ROTH IRAs are not my forte. Can anyone chime in? I'm on Investopedia and I learned that you can transfer assets an unlimited number of times per year. The catch? Account setup, close-out fees and annual fees. 🧐🥴😫See more
If you’re new to investing and don’t already have a #RothIRA set up, just do it … like NOW … and start maxing it out annually through sound investments. I promise it will be one of the best decisions of your life. Also, I will take ownership of this being financial advice.

#RothIRA Are there any sign up bonuses that you are aware of for starting a Roth IRA? If you know of any drop it in the comments. For the time being Public doesn't have Roth IRA capabilities, but this is such a valuable account that I don't want people to wait for Public to start one. Consider exploring your options.

Question: Do you have a Roth IRA? Do you like paying taxes? Dumb question 🙄, right? No one likes paying taxes, but they're a reality of life. Well, maybe not. If you love investing 📈 and hate paying taxes 💸, you should be investing using a Roth IRA. All the earnings from the investments you make within your Roth IRA are TAX FREE (as long as you follow all the qualified distribution rules).

Certain requirements must be met in order to trade options. Options can be risky and are not suitable for all investors. Options transactions are often complex, and investors can rapidly lose the entire amount of their investment or more in a short period of time. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing in options. Refer to the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before considering any options transaction. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request.

Options Order Flow Rebate.
If you are enrolled in our Options Order Flow Rebate Program, Public Investing will share 50% of our estimated order flow revenue for each completed options trade as a rebate to help reduce your trading costs. The exact rebate will depend on the specifics of each transaction and will be previewed for you prior to submitting each trade.

“Bonds” shall refer to corporate debt securities and U.S. government securities offered on the Public platform through a self-directed brokerage account held at Public Investing and custodied at Apex Clearing. For purposes of this section, Bonds exclude treasury securities held in treasury accounts with Jiko Securities, Inc. as explained under the “ Treasury Accounts” section.

Investments in Bonds are subject to various risks including risks related to interest rates, credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors. The value of Bonds fluctuate and any investments sold prior to maturity may result in gain or loss of principal. In general, when interest rates go up, Bond prices typically drop, and vice versa. Bonds with higher yields or offered by issuers with lower credit ratings generally carry a higher degree of risk. All fixed income securities are subject to price change and availability, and yield is subject to change. Bond ratings, if provided, are third party opinions on the overall bond's credit worthiness at the time the rating is assigned. Ratings are not recommendations to purchase, hold, or sell securities, and they do not address the market value of securities or their suitability for investment purposes.

High-Yield Cash Account.
A High-Yield Cash Account is a secondary brokerage account with Public Investing. Funds in your High-Yield Cash Account are automatically deposited into partner banks (“Partner Banks”), where that cash earns interest and is eligible for FDIC insurance. See here for a list of current Partner Banks. Your Annual Percentage Yield is variable and may change at the discretion of the Partner Banks or Public Investing. Apex Clearing and Public Investing receive administrative fees for operating this program, which reduce the amount of interest paid on swept cash. Neither Public Investing nor any of its affiliates is a bank. Learn more.

Alternative Assets.
Brokerage services for alternative assets available on Public are offered by Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”), member of FINRA & SIPC. “Alternative assets,” as the term is used at Public, are equity securities that have been issued pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) (“Regulation A”). This content is not investment advice. These investments are speculative, involve substantial risks (including illiquidity and loss of principal), and are not FDIC or SIPC insured. Alternative Assets purchased on the Public platform are not held in a Public Investing brokerage account and are self-custodied by the purchaser. The issuers of these securities may be an affiliate of Public Investing, and Public Investing (or an affiliate) may earn fees when you purchase or sell Alternative Assets. For more information on risks and conflicts of interest, see these disclosures. An affiliate of Public may be “testing the waters” and considering making an offering of securities under Tier 2 of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received, until an offering statement filed with the SEC has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC or as stated in the offering materials relating to an investment opportunity, as applicable. An indication of interest to purchase securities involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Cryptocurrency trading, execution, and custody services are provided by Bakkt Crypto Solutions, LLC (NMLS ID 1828849) (“Bakkt”). Cryptocurrency is highly speculative, involves a high degree of risk, and has the potential for loss of the entire amount of an investment.

Bakkt is a licensed virtual currency business by the New York State Department of Financial Services and a licensed money transmitter, but is not a registered broker-dealer or a FINRA member. Your Bakkt Crypto account is separate from your brokerage account with Public Investing, which holds US-listed stocks and ETFs. Please review the Risk Disclosures before trading.

Treasury Accounts.
Investing services in treasury accounts offering 6 month US Treasury Bills on the Public platform are through Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information.

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. Although T-bills are considered safer than many other financial instruments, you could lose all or a part of your investment. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.

Banking services and bank accounts are offered by Jiko Bank, a division of Mid-Central National Bank.
