That's good to know. I rarely want to see the movie after reading a book. I really want to see The Count of Monte Cristo on Broadway, wouldn't mind film. I also want to see The Kite Runner movie as well.I like that book, both the English and French translations. The movies aren't that bad either.
Question: Why not do a separate brokerage account, but still at Vanguard?I feel like there was an investing thread and I just can't find it/I'm too lazy to go through everything...I'm thinking of finally looking into a personal brokerage account. I'm super simple/just want to hold onto stuff, but wanted to do it in an account separate from my IRA accounts at Vanguard. I was thinking of maybe looking into Fidelity? They don't have a minimum and they must have a S&P 500 index fund that I can maybe piggyback on like Vanguard VTSAX?
For some reason I want to keep my personal brokerage separate from my retirement accounts, just a personal reason, but I don't know if Vanguard would report them all as the same or not? As for transfers...that's not something important right now, since I'm prob not touching my retirement stuff until I'm at least 60 yo.Question: Why not do a separate brokerage account, but still at Vanguard?
Don't take that as a recommendation. I don't have any recommendations. But it can be convenient to have your accounts at the same company. E.g. it makes transfers much easier.
I did a little more research and I think I'm going to open up my personal account with Vanguard, since a lot of the fees go away if you have over $50k with them in some manner (which I have in my IRA/Roth accounts). Want to put in at least $3k so I can just VTSAX it and ignore it monthly. Going to start saving up that $3k since I don't want to steal from my HYSA (HMBradley is weird in that is calculates how much you 'use' per quarter and then changes your interest rate based on that). At least I now have a plan to go towards/a goal.
