if you decided to go on a mutual fund, do u have to share on a regular basis or one time only? If the minimum share for stock is $200 for example, should u share on a monthly basis or is it a one time investment? thank u

Mutual funds are like deposits. You are not required to put in an amount every month. However, if you're trying to save up for long-term, you are encouraged to put a portion for it to increase. Remember that NAVPS (Net Asset Value Per Share) is something that you should watch out for. If it's getting higher, then you can relax with putting much. It's like stocks, you put more the times when they're value is low, while you withdraw or redeem when it's high. But unlike Stocks, it's less risky, but also the returns are lesser as well. But if you're saving for long-term (retirement) then that's a good thing. Good luck! Have a great mylot experience ahead!

You can do it as often or as limited as you like. It's like putting money in savings.. But of course, if you don't have the habit of savings then you can't expect it to grow big :)
