FEATURED QUERY: Do you rely on tips for a living? Tell us more
Marketplace Money hears daily from people who feel turned off by the stock market and unnerved by real estate. They say that they’re looking for alternative investments that will make them feel good about where their money is going and secure that it will be there tomorrow.
Have you invested your money in a non-traditional way? Tell us here.
We’re particularly interested to hear from people who’ve taken what investment dollars they have and traded them for objects of value. Maybe you’ve put your hard earned dollars toward art, antiques or coins. Or perhaps classic cars are more your thing (or American Girl Dolls, or musical instruments, or heirloom vegetable seeds).
Whether your non-traditional investing story is one of success or utter failure, we want to hear about it. Click here to share your experience.
