Best 20s Personal Finance Posts from the Past Week:
Austin from ForiegnersFinance interviews his Japanese Friend about the similarities and difference between the two cultures on Personal Finance. Sometimes Hiro looks annoyed about all the questions, but the video-interview is a good watch.
The Silicon Valley Blogger currently ranks the online stock brokers for cheap trades, this is a very commercial post, but offers a really quick rundown of the online brokers. My broker right now is Zecco (ranked 3rd), and I don’t recommend it. The fees changed the moment I got into a account with them and their stock-trading layout is very poor. I think a Zecco Review is in the Future. I’ve heard eTrade is good, but I wouldn’t pick a online broker just based on fees/costs – especially sense I’m a long term investor.
