Just started following this site but I've been investing for a long time & have had much success. Dollar cost ave. has worked for me over the long term. Having the $ taken out of your check or checking acct. ea. mo. is a great way to paticipate. Personally, Mut. funds & or ETFs are an easy way to diversify. I like Fidelity Index funds & Broad-ranged ETFS, ITOT, IJH, for ex. FSEVX, & FSTMX are tweo of my favorite Index mut. funds. Automatically reinvesting dividends & cap. gains over the long term is the best way to grow your money. Paying .07-.10% for Fidel. index mut. funds is the cheapest & most profitable way to make your $ grow over the long term. ( I personally don't understand day traders. Most of them lose $ over the long term. To me it's the difference betw. gambling & INVESTING). Good luck
