If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to get stock tips or have investing ideas delivered to your email. I’m also on The Twitter.Thanks for visiting!Tweet Because I like to procrastinate, I spend a bit of time on The Reddit. I follow such subreddits as the one that asks celebrities somewhat interesting questions, the one that lets people brag about the volume of their video game collection, and the one that the one that hates cops/Comcast/pro-lifers/anti-gays/Wal-Mart. Oh wait. That last one is all of Reddit, probably because someone Read More […]

Tweet Oh boy kids! You know it’s exciting when I start cracking out the exclamation marks! The year was 2010. I was more single than a Kraft cheese slice, stuck in a job that I didn’t particularly enjoy. Instead of working, I’d spend hours reading my favorite personal finance blogs, constantly thinking that I could do a better job than those dumbasses. I don’t know if I succeeded, but I think I’ve outlasted every single one of them. So I started my own personal finance blog. Fun fact: Financial Uproar Read More […]

Tweet I’m back, bitches. Back in Canada, that is. After cutting my Korean adventure a couple of months short for reasons I will TAKE TO MY GRAVE, I’m back in Canada with my lady friend. You may know her as Vanessa, but I don’t. To be honest, I’ve barely learned her name. She’s either “sweetcheeks,” “toots,” or “get me a sandwich.” Yeah, that last paragraph is getting me a punch to the kidneys. Anyhoo, now that we’re back, we have plans. We’ve picked a nice community to settle down in, Read More […]

Tweet Oh hey, new graduate. Congratulations on finally getting yo’ ass a diploma. I know it’s probably attached with an assload of student loan debt, but hey. At least you finished. Imagine being that guy who has a bunch of debt and works at Starbucks who doesn’t even have his degree. At least you have bragging rights. You might not remember, but delivering these messages is kind of a tradition around here. I did one in 2013, which urged you all to pay off your debt at all costs. I Read More […]

Tweet If you ever want to get a Canadian riled up, don’t bother mentioning hockey, maple syrup, poutine, Tim Hortons, curling, or anything else Americans normally associate with their neighbours to the north (I spelled neighbors the Canadian way because I’m a better Canadian than you. TAKE THAT, HARPER.). Instead, just mention real estate commissions. I actually did this one day, and got the following responses. “My house sold in a week, and I paid $10,000 in commission. I estimate my Realtor made at least $1,000 per hour. I hate Read More […]

Tweet I suppose I should start this out explaining what a reverse mortgage is, huh? Or I could just do what I normally do, hire a bunch of monkeys to type until we get something that approximates English. Hey, it worked for Shakespeare. Or not, like I paid attention in science class. Anyhoo, let’s talk a little about reverse mortgages, which, as the name implies, are like a regular mortgage, except backwards.

Tweet The lady friend and I went to Hong Kong last weekend, and let me tell you guys something. It was a hell of an experience. I basically pictured Hong Kong as London, but with more Asian people. It would be a cosmopolitan city filled with high-tech wonders, really shiny office towers, and the best dining in the vicinity. Yeah, there were pockets of great stuff. The downtown shopping area was about as nice as you’d expect. The subways were clean and efficient. The place was filled with western restaurants, Read More […]

Tweet Approximately one year ago, I aroused both your eyeballs and Pituitary glands with a fun post about stock market facts. These facts were incredibly important to anyone who is looking to invest in the stock market, or maybe for impressing people at dinner parties. Do people still go to dinner parties? I was invited once, but then got kicked out when I tea bagged the appetizer meatballs. Anyway, that post was fun, so lets do another. This one is on fun facts about the currency market. Stay tuned for Read More […]

Tweet Last week, Twitter was all, uh, atwitter, about Royal Bank increasing its bank fees. Some of the changes which go into effect on June 1st include: If you use up your free monthly debits (raised from 10 to 12), you’ll have to pay a fee to pay your mortgage, car loan, or any other loan automatically taken out of your account. That fee is from $2-$5 per transaction If you have a kids or student account, this fee is $1 Seniors now have to be 65 to qualify for Read More […]

Tweet If you’re a homeowner in Canada over the age of 50, chances are you’re sitting on a pretty nice chunk of change. Provided, of course, that you actually paid off your mortgage and didn’t squander your equity on whatever it is the kids like these days. Maybe stickers. So what should you do with it? Fear not, little old one. We here at Financial Uproar (read: one pantsless guy and a laptop) have put together a little guide that helps you make the decision of what exactly you should Read More […]
