To admirable 24 yr. old investor, I am sitting right in your boat. I am 23 yrs old, just got married and trying to organize my portfolio to where i will be able to retire by the time I am 45. The recommendations I have received have been diverse, however I believe the way to go is stocks. As young as we are, we need to take advantage of the history of long-term growth of stocks. When we get paid, my wife and I put a percentage of our paycheck straight into the stock market. With the recent volatility, it is nerve wracking, but I know long-term (20-25- years), I will be inposition to retire comfortably. If you have an extra 15-20 bucks, I recommend getting Motley Fool's Investment Guide. This book gives you a breakdown of different methods of investing and helps you to determine which method is right for you. Good Luck!! Write me back in about 20 years, when we should both be secure and hopefully very wealthy.CashVast
