I took a year to study the stockmarket in 1990 and learned some basics. Also, learned to invest in mutual funds in the beginning because my knowledge was too sketchy to do anything else and that is recommended. 1. Read money magazine for the ratings and returns on funds and pick your fund (s). 2. Stick to your plan.3. Balance long term investments with short term investments whatever that means because I've never been able to hit it. 4. Only invest half and put the other half in bonds. Read the posts about credit lines on home owner equity, and you may use that, too, if you have a need.I moved on to stocks now as I know more (haha) Good luck. When you lose, call it tuition and know you have to pay it. Screw your courage to the sticking place. I am self taught except for online seminars. jc
