Do you know what an exchange traded fund is? It’s like a mutual fund you can trade like a stock, it’s crazy. So, how do you buy an ETF [3]? JLP writes all about it, so check it out.

Have you ever considered being an investment banker? [4] If you can see past the bundles of money, you’ll probably see the “Alcoholism. Depression. Heart disease due to stress. Delusions of failure.”

If you just opened up a bank account, you’ll probably want at least one check book. So, Nickel wrote up a bit on how to order checks without getting ripped off [5] and scammed.

If you’ve ever taken a Myers-Briggs test, you’ll probably remember what you “were.” Me? I took one at my last job and I was an ENTP (Extraversion, Intuition, Thinking, Perceiving), but MBH recently wrote a piece about how this would matter with respect to your personal finance [6].

Have you ever been the victim of identity theft? Hopefully not, but you should still read this brief post about the best place to report identity theft [7].

Are Payday loans a threat to National Security? [8] LAMoneyGuy writes about an interesting USA Today article about how military servicemen and women were more likely to take pay day-type loans and which come with a high fee and high interest rates, it’s an interesting bit of information I didn’t know about.

Lazy Man and Money, who will be hosting the Festival of Frugality next week, writes a brief post about how Boston Sports Club keeps charging him [9] even though he’s moved and went through the pains of canceling in the first place.
