I was just recently left 50,000 dollars, there is no taxes owed on it .I would like to invest this money in the stock market.I,m self employed and have enough money other then this money to get by for at least a year if something happens to me and I can't work.Plus I have some money put aside in a local bank in case of an emergency.My point is this money will not be needed until I retire in 15 -20 years.I've just started looking into this and need lots of help from opening a discount account to were I should put the money to how do I start a sep IRA.Already after reading some of the posted messages about opening various discount accounts and the problems some people are having, I would be nervous about mailing $50,000 to some place I never heard of. How can you be sure its being handled properly?I have read The Motley Fool Investment Guide and plan to follow some of its advice,but alot of it still isn't real clear to me. Any help will be appreciated.
