How a CD Ladder Can Protect Retirement Income

How to build a CD ladder

In order to build a CD ladder you invest in a number of CDs which are set to mature at regular intervals, which can be six months to one year.

For example, let us assume that you have $10,000 to invest. Split that money into five equal parts — $2,000 each — and invest equally across five CDs: A one-year CD, a two-year CD, a three-year CD, a four-year CD, and a five-year CD.

At the end of the first year the one-year CD will mature, at which point you can reinvest the money into a five-year CD.

At the end of the second year, the two-year CD will mature, at which point you can reinvest the money into another five-year CD.

Keep repeating this strategy until you have five five-year CDs in your ladder, each of which is set to mature in a separate upcoming year. You will have earned more money from your CDs compared to what you could have earned if you had parked all your money in a savings account or a money market account.

Cryptocurrency Will Shine Through the Coming Chaos

While the U.S. spends and spends and spends its way into oblivion, the eventual result will be inflation. Serious inflation. The dollar will crash, gold will shoot higher and Bitcoin, well, it can only become more scarce and more valuable. There’s a natural ceiling to the number of Bitcoins that will exist — ever. By design, there can only be 21 million of them. Soon, the ceiling will be hit. Now is the moment to get into cryptocurrency. There’s a been a rise of late, but prices are consolidating, setting up for the next leap higher.
