How is Frontier to fly? I generally stick with American or United, but some friends I’m planning a ski trip with are lobbying for Frontier because it has nonstop from DCA to DEN (admittedly more convenient than IAD for anyone that lives inside the beltway in DC area, but there are many more United nonstop options out of IAD in case there’s a delay or cancellation). Thoughts?

I’m purchasing a used car for 45k and financing through at 1.49% for 65 months. Im not putting anything down as I’d like to invest in the market instead. I got $7.5k from my trade that I want to invest. 1. Am I making a mistake not putting something down? 2. What stocks can I invest my $7.5k in for stabilized growth (e.g., VOO, VTI). Do I DCA or invest lump sum? 3. Based on history and experience, will I benefit from this strategy or will I break even with the interest I’m paying?

Hi, I joined tcs as a fresher,with good knowledge in python and web frameworks. But HR forced me into a support project with little to no learning opportunity.

Please advice me on this. The project is a lot of repetitive work, which i dont find any interest in. Shall i wait for the band or try to get a release now?

Hi all, I am trying to DCA bi-weekly into Vanguard ETFs, (VO, VTI etc). It seems like Fidelity does not support auto buying of non-Fidelity ETFs. So I was wondering which of these options you think is best? 1. Open a Vanguard Invest account 2. Look for Fidelity ETFs that are similar to Vanguard ETFs 3. Use smaller brokerages like SoFi l, Robinhood etc. I really do not want to manage nor be active. My goal is to log-in like once every 6 months. Thank you all.
