Good luck,


Thanks for the article link. ETFs do indeed rule! It allows me to invest into a specific sector or an emerging market overseas.

I've mentioned Janus Smart Portfolio - Growth a couple of times here. Perhaps I should consider tilting toward that direction (even though I mentioned I firmly want to do more hands-on equities investing), especially considering
