You are poorer today
Yesterday the Fed announced plans to start quantitative easing. The result is any money in your bank account will be worth less than it was. Basically, we are just pushing a computer button and creating more money. It is a huge risk mostly in that it can cause devaluation of the dollar and assets. It is too damn early for me to give an economics lesson today. Look it up, learn about it, study some economic history and if you haven't already, take steps to protect your assets.
