I recently qualified for an employer sponsered retirement account through Fidelity. The account was opened in my name, and ~$5000 was placed in the account ( I anticipate future retirement monies of ~ $5000 yearly or >). I need to invest the money, but I am not sure of the right investment mix. I am 38 years old, married, two children, and just starting to save for retirement. My wife has a 401K and only has ~$35000 saved for retirement. I have read the 13 steps on getting started and know that the Fools recommend Index funds; I would also like to start choosing @ least 1 stock pic per month as recommended on the Stock Adviser 2007 newsletter. Getting started this late in life, it sees that I need to be aggresive in my investments?????? Any good advise as to which direction (diversification) I should invest my retirement dollars. Also, what about Fidelity Freedom Funds??? I have read the Fools do not like mutual funds.Thanks in advance for any recommendations.AGS711
