Oh, and another thing. If you are going to use the Vangard Funds to invest you don't even need a broker. Just contact Vangard (or any other no load fund for that matter) direct and have them send you the paperwork to get started.

You may want to go to your public library to check out MORNINGSTAR for information about other noload mutual funds. Value Line also has a mutual fund guide that is good and they do individual stocks in their stock guides. Ask your librarian for more information.

I would recommend not investing in a load fund if you can find a noload fund that gives the same rate of return. Your money will grow a lot faster there.

Of course the best choice is to keep coming back to TMF and learn more about how to do it right when it comes to buying individual stocks. That will give you the highest return of all. Personally I recomend the foolish four method, it is easy and doesn't take up much of your time.
