Have an Amex personal platinum and corporate green. Will definitely spend more on corporate card.

Any recommendation which one to make/keep as platinum and which on to make/keep as green, blue, or gold?

Earning rates on any amex corp card are bad so def keep the corp card as green.

Personal Gold/Platinum are good cards to hold (or Blue if you prefer cash back) but not personal Green

Huh?

Referring to how I should switch up my card types to best utilize them. Currently I have a personal platinum and a corporate green. However, I’m thinking about switching the type of cards around.

I'm really confused on how the employer sponsored 401k impacts taxes.

I'm filing my taxes and credit karma says I owe $2000. I only contributed $8500 to my 401k in 2020 and want to see what would happen if I increased my contribution in 2021. I'm playing around with different scenarios and if I increase my 401k contribution to $19,500, credit karma still shows that I owe $2,000. I thought it should go down as my taxable income is lowered.

Am I missing something?

I’m seeing lots of posts about really bad losses. If you trade you’re going to lose money - hopefully not all the time, but many positions will be mistakes. But you need a process to find ideas and manage positions. Two books you should read are “The New Trading for a Livinng” and “The Laws of Trading.” Both look at psychology, process, and risk in different ways that can help you work out your own process. The next 18 months will be much harder than the last 18 - time to start learning.

New idea: investing platform that lets you make a note when you buy stocks/ index funds. And then tracks the growth of those stocks separately. (I.e. I have like 200 shares of something. But I bought 10 of those shares when I switched firms. And 10 of those shares with my 2022 bonus. I want to be able to note the occasion that I bought shares and then easily track the growth of those individual shares. As a scrapbook of my experiences. Rather than buying jewelry for sentimentality.
