10 Reasons Why Investing in Commodities Is Dangerous
The argument for avoiding commodity investments continuously outweighs any argument which encourages investing in commodities. Commodities are raw materials such as crude oil, natural gas, precious metals, and other natural resources, which people invest in and trade through the stock market.

Why a 401(k) is Not Your Best Option
When it comes to saving for retirement, there are a few common options out there. People who work traditional jobs, including both my parents, have 401(k) plans. Their employer matches their contribution or pays a percentage on the dollar. To be clear, this is only when you contribute out of your own wages. For example, if an employer pays 50 cents on the dollar and you put $3,000 in your 401(k), your total savings will be $4,500. With a 401(k), you get to contribute more money per year than if you had an IRA - $19,500 versus $6,000 if you under the age of 50, $26,000 versus $7,000 if you are over the age of 50. These limits are current to the 2020 and 2021 years.

My small-town family background of generational poverty had taught me to disdain people with wealth or success, writing off the rich as a bunch of scammers, crooks, and sleaze bags, intent on taking advantage of poor people like us.
Why I’m Using the Stash App to Begin Investing in the Stock Market in 2021 (Part II)
