Does the national debt affect the stock market, and could Bitcoin go to $100,000? Here are the answers to five questions sent in by Where the Money Is listeners.

In today's edition of Where the Money Is, Motley Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson answer five questions sent in from Fool listeners.

They discuss their thoughts on Wells Fargo and its long-term prospects, take a look at U.S. debt and how it impacts the stock market and individual investors, look into savings account interest rates and how to think about yield vs. the need for liquidity as an investor, investigate the curious case of one deeply troubled Irish bank and its enormous market capitalization, and answer the question: What has a better chance of getting to $100,000 first, one Bitcoin or $1,000 worth of scratch-off lottery tickets?
