  1. 25x on savings compared to your bank.
    Me; 0.05% x 25 = 1.2% return.
    Yup, sounds about right.
    Invest your money lads & keep dry powder on the side.
    Always save more than you invest & use your savings as offense when investment opportunities arise. Mrs Sarah Ann is a goddess I swear in trading.
