  1. Hey everyone, thanks for watching my video this week! Looks like the Penny app is currently unavailable, my apologies for mentioning that one – if I find another similar app I will be sure to share! In the meantime, if you need to get started investing – there's no better place to start than my must-have checklist (it's free)!

  2. Another thing to note with TradeStation. They have a military program that gives you completely free commissions and access to most of their resources and software. Any Active Duty, Reserves, and National Guard member will get approved for it. You just have to email customer support after opening the account to start that process. It currently beats Robinhood if you’re like me and want access to OTC stocks and more in-depth research.

  3. YNAB aka You Need A Budget, in my opinion the best budgeting app. The only app I’ve been using constantly for more than a year and I have all my transactions there which gave my huge inside and control over my spending and use of money.

  4. Love Seeking Alpha and Acorns. While I'll definitely agree that Acorns won't make you rich or get you to financial freedom, I view it as an amazing way to build up an emergency stash of money and if you ever need that money for dire emergencies, you can pay for your emergency and then cash out your Acorns money and it usually takes 2-3 business days to receive. That's how I use it and it's saved my butt once before. Another I would highly recommend is Robinhood for a beginning investor. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of Fidelity or IB but it's commission free and it's slick UI makes it an easy experience to just start investing. Also, TD Ameritrade let's people create a free account and start using their Think or Swim software for free, so I would absolutely recommend that to get a feel for investing and start practicing placing orders and selling with fake money before making mistakes with real cash. Great video, as always, Phil!

  5. In my case, I normally use 3 apps

    1- Budgeting and spend track wallet

    You can have shares account with your family, automatically track your banks' account, recurring payments and different currencies. I tried a lot, this one is by far the best.

    2- For Keeping track of my portfolio I use
    Has all the market and the cryptocurrencies and others, very intuitive and easy to use.

    3- Investing.
    Because my condition of Digital Nomad the only one I found easy to sign up and use is DriveWealth. Sadly you can only by stocks and ETFs in the American Exchanges.

    I am also using for Crypto and other markets.

  6. The Penny App is discontinued. Mint is a good alternative that I've used for almost 10 years. Also, Fidelity Rewards Visa Signature Card
    earns unlimited 2% cash-back into a brokerage account among other investment options. This would address your concern of having to use Acorn and investing in Mutual Funds. Also, I'm surprised you did not mention the Robin Hood App for first time users, no commission charges and roller over from another brokerage account for free. Opinions are my own.

  7. Seeking Alpha is a complete useless rubbish. Just a bunch of goons trying to manipulate stocks in their favor. Never listen to so called "analysts". If they actually knew something useful, they wouldn't need a job.

  8. Mint is a great budgeting app that I use nearly everyday.

    It helps you set a monthly budget and tracks all of your finances from your credit cards, loans, etc.

    Mint is owned by Intuit, and I’ve recommended it to all my peers. Check it out sometime.

  9. I like Personal Capital, before I liked Mint but I find it disorganized so I switched to Personal Capital. It’s an app that keeps track of all my accounts in one place instead of going from website to website, it’s all in one place. I like it!

  10. I feel like acorns is the exact opposite of what Rule number #1 is teaching. Not sure if I understand how acorn works, but doesn't it invest your spare change automatically? regardless of the price of your favorite stocks??
