Hello! I am a first time poster, and have recently resolved to start investing. For about 4 years now I have been putting money into various accounts, but have failed to invest a penny. Yes, the money is literally just SITTING in accounts, not invested in a thing. Call it fear, procrastination, being a big dork, it all fits. Bottom line is I need to invest my money, but I'm not sure how. Here's the breakdown:rollover IRA: $7500general trading account: $7000roth IRA: $10,000ING direct account: $4000I do not plan on accessing this money anytime soon, and feel that I have a high risk tolerance. I also subscribe to the Hidden Gems newsletter, and although I haven't purchased any of their recommendations, I would like to. My question is: What kinds of things should I invest in these different accounts? I realize the tax benefits from investing in a Roth, and am wondering whether I should invest the potentially big gainers there, and leave the more consistent, steady gainers such as an index fund in something like my rollover account. I am all for diversification, but I realize that, at 28, I've got some time to be more aggressive with my money. Any advice would be much appreciated! Or, if you feel there is a more appropriate board for this type of question, let me know. Thanks a lot!
