Hi again,

Thanks for your replies to my A.G. Edwards question they were helpful.

As you know I am new so this next question might sound VERY novice :-)

I have primarily been looking into Mutual Funds as an investment vehicle. Is there any reason I should not do just Mutual Funds? I am afraid of pure Stocks I would hate to invest $10,000 in some stocks and and it lose more than I Invest I have nothing I could liquidate to repay the losses..whats that called?? Margin call?

So I have avoided Stocks altogether but I am told it is the best way to build a retirement. It is all so confusing.

Teach me good people my Future is at stake. :-) Ok a bit melodramtic but hey we are all Foolish here no?
