Investment Workshop 11: Understanding Your ETFs

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. Hi everyone, and happy Wednesday! Now normally we’d be doing another buy this week but this happens to be one of those weirdo months where a bi-weekly buy schedule starts to drift away from the typical semi-annual paycheck schedule. So rather than buy on Jan 11th, we’re going to take a break and do our next buy next week on the 18th to get re-synced a little bit closer to people’s paychecks.

Investment Workshop 7: Time To Buy

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. After a brief hiatus to sync up our buy schedule to most people’s paydays (1st and 15th), we will now be putting in our 2nd buy orders in our DCA strategy. Now, the nice thing about DCA is that not only do you get practice putting in orders and buying ETFs, you get practice with the absolutely critical process of rebalancing your portfolio.
