This will save me a lot even if it’s just for a few months. Right now my whole payment goes just toward interest

Uhhh what’s this now?

Mad man. Not going to complain especially I opt for paying the minimal amount and put my funds in the market instead hahahahaha

Does this mean no interest is acruing during this time? Any more/less?

No specific details yet. Sounds like what you said that interest won’t accrue during this time.

How much could this possibly save you over the course of the few months that they’ll be waived? It can’t be more than your refinancing benefit.

At what pt in the transaction is the furniture for a home sold/moved? Had a buyer walk the day before closing so a bit paranoid about this time around. With the last buyer, they were going inherit the furniture so this wasn’t an issue, but the new buyer does not want it so trying to have them allow me to sell it (for 2-3 days) after closing day so I’m not shit out of luck. The property is an airbnb, so if i sell everything and this new buyer walks, I’m screwed as i’ll have to pay $3400 a month.

Are ARK funds' inflows propping up the underlying stocks prices?
Can someone tell me if I understand this correctly? Let's use ARKG as an example. PACB is 6.54% of fund. If the fund takes in a billion in the next week, they'll deploy somewhere around 6% of that into PACB to stay on % target. $60 million gets invested over the month into PACB. Volume in PACB in December was 34.2m shares at ~$30 for a total of 1 billion volume. ARKG took in over 400m in one day during December...
