The Skinny on Mutual Fund Investing

Mutual fund investing is a lot like Thai cooking. Everyone has heard of it, most know a little something about it, but very few actually know how to do it and do it well. To invest in mutual funds wisely, it is important to have a good grasp on what mutual funds are, how they work, and what the risks involved may be. The fact that mutual fund investments are often considered safer than stocks, options, and other investments often misleads people to think that their investment in mutual funds are risk free. This, as you will see, is not the case.

A stock market investment strategy spelled out, proven, and instilling within the investor the power to succeed in the stock market with an assured confidence.

The 401(K): How The Insider Has Stolen Your Retirement!

Mutual funds were moderately successful in creating a presence in the stock market until the advent of the investment retirement account and in particular the 401(k).

Mutual Funds: The Modern Den of Thieves!

Mutual funds were created with the idea that one person can specialize and manage the investments of a large pool of money from multiple investors.

Choosing a Stock Broker

If you were to find that you had some severe illness that required surgery, would you attempt to perform that surgery upon yourself? What if your car broke down and needed a valve job? Would you get out the Craftsman tool set you got for Christmas three years ago and start tinkering under the hood even though you know absolutely nothing about engines?
