Recently the federal reserve is considering instituting a negative interest rate which means the banks will charge you money for keeping (your) money in their bank.  OK so you get an attorney and financial adviser but that money is still kept in a bank or financial institution somewhere.  So what would you do after hitting the jackpot?  The moment you cash that check they'd be milking it.

      That would really stink.

      You have $400 mil in the bank and it cost $1 mil- $2 mil to keep it there! I don't think so!

      If I'm gonna lose money on it in the bank, then it's not going to be in a bank.

          Great topic LiveInGreenBay but i would apply it to more pressing concerns like the economy if you don't mind. 

          This 25 year era of free money without interest encouraged debt and spending with no worry for saving. Since america has the world reserve currency and kept rates to low for to long we are responsible for the worlds financial plight.  Now American's are broke and mad ready to vote Trump or Sanders to save their hide.  Yea right. Only if either of them does three things in my estimation.

          1.  Veto 99% of all bills that come across his desk for the next 4 years.
          2.  Appoint a new federal reserve chairman that will jack up interest rates to 15% on a 1 year cd for the next 4 years.
          3.  Sign an executive order to eliminate all the federal registry laws/regulations passed illegally by the bureaucrats since world war 2.  This will give businesses a free market to compete fairly in again.

          This would hurt worse than a whiskey drunk going cold turkey on bourbon street but it would fix alot of problems.

          Good luck seeing any of it.  Thoughts?

             I just read on a discount stock brokerage website that the world's central banks are concerned about negative interest rate plans (nirp)  This worries the world's stock markets. This is bad news.

             Deflation like inflation hurts. In many ways.

             Can we expect more stock market volatility?

              I would think buying up gold bullion would make sense,  however the amount you would need buy turns it in to nonsense as you would need a place to store it and protect it.

                I think $1m packs into a  20kg back pack. tho $200 mill might  be a bit harder to carry

                  Not all countries are going to enforce negative interest, so you can just move your money to politically stable ones that don't.

                  Hong Kong, Switzerland, Singapore, South Africa would be my bet.
