I've moved from the US to the UK, now what to do with my money?

I've recently moved to the UK, but I still have about $160k in dollars from the sale of a house and savings. I'd like to invest this money, which is currently sitting in a US savings account, but I'm not sure if I should do so in the UK or in the US. I plan to stay here for the long-term (probably will eventually become a citizen). [more inside]

Should I dump money into my retirement index fund if the market craters?

I have a bunch of money I've been wanting to dump into a low-fee index fund all year. (It's my retirement account.) I've been holding off because of the whole budget/debt ceiling business that's been going on all year. It looks like events will be coming to a head this week. If the market totally craters, would that be a good time to buy? [more inside]

Make supplemental income

I asked earlier about how to invest my savings (twenty-five thousand). And although a lot of the answers were good, many were not realistic for someone living in Canada, as our tax laws are different. Also, I have decent retirement fund already so I don't want to put anything into that. So for now I'm just keeping it in my 3% savings account until I decide later what to do with it. [more inside]

Have some spare money; how can I spend it to benefit the environment?

I have £150 spare this month and would like to spend it in a way that benefits the environment (climate change related). I'd love your suggestions about how I can use this money to have the most impact, whether that's donating to a top notch environmental charity or investing it in a green tech (renewables, insulation etc.) company that is doing particularly good work.

What is the best way to invest $10,000?

My best friend has $10,000 to invest and she wants to open up a business selling shoes for people with wide feet that are greater than the sizes that are usually available in stores (one of her friends has this as a great need) or an online store that sells adult toys. Are any of these worthy endeavors for me and her to pursue? If not, what is the best way to make money with a $10,000 investment?

Buy A House With Cash

My wife and I are buying a house in Austin, Texas ( Steiner Ranch ). We are trying to figure out how we want to finance it. We have the means to pay for the house with cash. We are being offered a mortgage at 3.6%. The cost of the house would represent about 50% of our net worth. The other 50% is fairly liquid, with an even spread between 401k, index funds, 529's, and cash. Should we do it? [more inside]

Buying things of real value.

I would like to buy things that have a money value based on their actual utility. For example, I think gold is something that is overvalued since the shiny, soft metal doesn't have so many practical uses to justify its value. The second criteria is that the value of the thing would not go down much over a span of about 30 years, even if the economy went in the tank. Thirdly, I've a preference for commodity-like items that can be sold without much work. [more inside]

How would you invest $1000/month to get a return of over 2.5% ?Investment forums?

Looking for forums where I can get investment advice. Can you recommend a few active ones? Also, how would you invest $1000/ month if you knew you were likely to pull out most of the money in approximately 4 years to pay a down payment for say a house? Banks probably give around 2%-3% max. So I imagine the goal here is to get more than 2.5% return. Please don't recommend the type of financial instrument such as mutual funds or index funds. I am looking for something more specific. Like a fund name etc

Protection in a weakening economy

Our deficit and our debt are at record levels, even compared to WWII. Then, the debt was financed internally, not by other countries, so the interest we could pay was lower and the money was recycled in the U.S. Now, the debt and deficit are mostly financed by other countries through bond offerings and the like. And as they grow, those debtor countries will want higher interest rates on repayments, which drains money out of the U.S. [more inside]

I'm 29, single (assume it's going to remain that way) female, and have spent the last few years saving an amount that's getting close to about $30k, which I presently have in my bank's equivalent of a your average ING Saver account, figuring by now I'd've figured out what I could/was willing to do with it, towards securing some kind of financial future that doesn't involve a cardboard box.
