Love it Trying to decide whether to stay with betterment or acorns. Acorns doesn't give fees to students which is nice.

-3.7% return after 1 year I've invested with them for exactly 1 year now, and I'm at a -3.7% return. It's a glorified savings account that yields a higher return, yet has the risk factor of downward market trends.

Does what it says it should I am at -10% but I'm not freaking out. I have a 90-10 portfolio and I know the risks. Some people need to calm down. If you're going to freak out about how they handle your money then leave and go somewhere else. I'm 19 and I don't expect to get any money back soon. It also helps that I'm not dumping money into it. I'm putting enough money to where my daily life isn't affected. This is what this is for, passive investing. You're gonna make and lose money, if it was safe everybody would be millionaires.
