Whatever you do make sure you know where you are going before you begin investing - make goals, etc. If you start investing without having a goal and a plan to get there, you are just beating around the bush and easily distracted by the topsy torvy market. A good start is reading the 13 steps to investing by MF. Think for yourself, be delibrate (according to your plan) and don't be in hurry. There's a lot of money to be made but you must have a goal and a plan to get there. Just having a goal to "make a lot of money" is not good enough. We all do! But only those who have a plan and work hard at it will get there. How much money, when, how, what would the money be used for, etc. etc. are questions you ought to ask (and answer) before you begin.

Fool on!
