Today on the Clark Howard Show, Ilyce Glink filled in. Ilyce discussed the dive in the stock market in the wake of the unexpected high unemployment numbers. The market on Friday started out in another deep dive, but ended the day up modestly. Ilyce also talked about her trip to Italy and how Continental Airlines has decided to charge $15 for the first checked bag. Ilyce answered questions about how many credit cards you need to have active to keep your credit score high, how to improve your credit in the wake of a divorce, how to get a developer to fix a problem with rotting windows throughout a development, whether it is a good time to refinance, how you know if you have been the victim of a predatory lender, how to find a financial planner (and if you should use a free planner from Vanguard or Fidelity), whether CDs will be affected by the FDIC’s takeover of Integrity Bank, and what to do if a credit card company has erroneously canceled an account.
