I’m looking for financial advisors, banking experts and academics for the pros and cons of market-linked CDs. I recall a good deal of criticism of these a number of years ago, and don’t find them advertised very widely these days, but it appears they still exist. How have they performed? What are the pros and cons? Do you ever recommend them? Would they make sense today for an investor who believes the stock market has peaked? How about for one who thinks the market will continue to climb? Who is an ideal investor and who should stay away? What is a better alternative? Why do we not hear more about them these days? What else should I be asking Requirements: I prefer responses by email containing usable content and
quotes, the source’s contact info, full name, title and location.
