re: Advice on moving my $10K CD to vanguard account and VOO fund - TorchtheFlyingTiger
I'd also move some out of the employer stock to fully fund both Roths. That's a large chunk of your wealth to have consolidated in a single stock. Your livelihood is already tied to the company's success. I wouldn't want so many eggs in the same corporate basket. ...

re: Advice on moving my $10K CD to vanguard account and VOO fund - TorchtheFlyingTiger
OP mentioned other investments but not Roth and is uncomfortable w Vanguard website. I wouldn't assume they already do Roth. If married you can fund 2 Roth and get the entire $10k in. That's what I'd do. ...

re: How old are you, and how much is in your 401K? - TorchtheFlyingTiger
Interesting to see a few real responses outside the echo chamber of the money board. Unfortunately OP is getting showered with down votes. It's too bad people people don't talk finances more freely outside of financial forums. It would help the masses avoid money mistakes and prosper using the pow...
