I am a retired Engineer 70yr old and have a very
good retirement. I have 7k cash and 35k in Mutual Funds that I would like to invest in the Market.
My retirement allows me to be a bit risky or foolish.
I have been trying to decide which way to go tech stocks, foolish four,Rule Breaker,or a combination.
Being an engineer I lean toward the tech stocks or the cutting edge of the biostocks. Could I buy stock in the technical market and still diversify? Thanks for your

You can not be diversified if you are all in Techs.
The suggestion to buy QQQ's is good. Add SPY (Standard & Poors 500) and you will be a little more diversified.

Be sure you have an emergency fund before you buy.
