Will I be able to save enough for a trip next year and a part time degree, but yet also build up my emergency funds in my situation?

My salary is 3.7k without cpf deduction now. My liquid cash in a posb is only 3k plus minus before my salary comes in. I have normal contribution of $600 to my parents, $400 to a joint saving acc, $700 DCA monthly contribution to robo advisor.

Hey there.

If you are considering high-interest savings accounts, CIMB has recently announced today that they will be revising their interest rate for FastSaver. You might want to take a look here.

Other alternative choices that do not require spending/minimum sum include:

Singlife Account (2.5% p.a, capaital guaranteed, interest non guaranteed)

FSM Auto-Sweep Account (1.05%p.a, interest rates may be revised)

Stashaway Simple (1.9%, capital non guaranteed, interest non guaranteed)

SCB JumpStart (1%p.a, only for aged 18-26)

Crypto Earn (Depending on currency, as high as 16%p.a (CRO) without any prior staking. However, do take note of the volatility of cryptocurrencies. For higher interest rates, a fixed duration of 90 days is imposed before withdrawal can be made. Intetest is paid out every 7 days)

Crypto Exchange (20%p.a for CRO currency. Similar to Crypto Earn, just that fixed duration is set at 180 days. Interest is paid out daily)

Vivid Account (1.05% p.a for first 10k, 1.30% for 10k-20k)

Tiq 3 Year Endowment Plan (2.10%p.a, guaranteed)

Hello there! Insurance and emergency funds should come first before you DCA your $700 into a robo advisor. Perhaps you can rethink about what is important to you.

I do have my insurance. Was thinking of using some of my investment fund help with building up the emergency fund but was worried I may be overspending or money allocation is too diverse
