        Put your money in an index fund and never look at it again until you die and leave it to your heirs, or need it. Easy Peasy.

        Quick update. I put my money with E*Trade and I am using their Automated Broker System. This will have to work in the short term.

        Has anyone dabbled in the Forex Market? If so, what platform have you found to work best for you?

        Well well well, a newbie one day, foreign currency trading the next. One might think you have dived directly into the deep end of the pool. But no. You have gone directly into that 100 foot cliff diving thingy somewhere in the jungles of Brazil. Good luck and try not to get run over by all those trucks or carried out in a body bag.

          I've known a lot of people who have dabbled in Forex. I've never known anyone that didn't lose everything they put at risk.

                My best friend’s dad devoted several years in that market. He’d make fortunes. And lose bigger fortunes.

                    I mean honestly... to see the words "newbie" and "FOREX" in the same sentence makes me chuckle. Good luck there buddy... please survive it so you can come back and tell us about the azz whoopin'!!!! :lol:

                          On May 19th our newbie investor wades in with Automated Broker System and then on June 1 he feels ready for FOREX. Let a machine do it for me for 12 days and then I will walk in and push around the likes of Goldman, Morgan Stanley, UBS, BNP Paribas, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, etc. etc. etc. Sounds about right :lmao2:
