Greetings mookie,

35% of you would put all your eggs in one basket???

How are 500 stocks one basket exactly?

Haven't we learned anything from this market??

Sure, that the market can decline and give those of us that DCA the coveted buying opportunity.

And does anyone know what a Variable Annuity is???

It is an insurance product that allows people to invest in mutual fund-like vehicles called subaccounts that can be quite similar to mutual funds and some fund companies do offer Variable Annuities.

Variable Annuity references:
