Hey can you tell me about investing? I'm young so I want to get started for my retirement, the military has a pretty good program but my mutual funds took a hard beating, I want to branch out and diversify my investments. I'll have about 10 grand saved by the time I come home from Iraq and I want to put it to good use. I was thinking I'd put the 5K yearly maximum into a Roth IRA and hold the rest as an emergency savings account, can you offer any pointers on other things I should look at?"Don't vote.

This was no great accomplishment. The whole market went up 900 points on the day I made this post. The week before I lost a boatload of $. It was more of a sarcastic declaration than anything else.
I'm just glad that most of my money has been out of the market for a while now.
I subscribe to investors business daily. They have a very good evaluation program. IF you follow it. I seem to free-lance a bit too much.

Buy a gun and start slinging junk on the corner. It's a lot safer than being in the market these days. :eek:
Back in 2000, I lost a LOT of money in a very short period of time. You might consider some good mutual funds. Even those, you'd better do your homework and know what you're doing.

It's really easy to get stupid while you're getting greedy. I'm sure you know Cramer's mantra: Bulls make money; Bears make money; Pigs get slaughtered.

Always remember your retirement money is not speculative money. Keep in mind your retirement needs and how long it is before you need your money. For retirement, keep you money in good companies - not necessarily blue chippers, but well run and profitable companies.
When I was building up my accounts, I set aside my retirement money - but also set aside a bit to speculate with.I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
