Well for me, I am not investing anything yet, but myself.:) I am going to invest in the Fund or Stock soon since quite some of my friends are making quite some money there, I suppose I would have a trial then as well:) My Dad sometimes would tell me that the best investment he has made is us, his three children:) And we three are his only wealthy after all.:) I am moved by his these sayings...

I don't have anything invested in stocks but my fiance does, I think his stocks are up to almost $50,000.00 now. We are going to use that for a down payment on a house since living in an apartment is not the best. But I think that we are going to put money back into the stocks to maybe help save up for my sons college education.

Wow, that's quite good an investment for your Fiance. Totally agree with that house is different from a apartment. My GF & me are going to buy a new house in year 2009 before we get married, there is still a long way to go. I hope I could also get some money for the down payment for the house then. Regarding to the education investment, it is the best investment of all in my view, what do you think of it? Andy

Well the college education investment is a very good investment since now days in order to get a well paying job you have to have some type of college education, and I'm sure in the future it will most likely be more needed than now. I have $1,000 saved up so far for his education, he is only one but you have to start early with these type of things. Also every year when I get a tax return I am going to put that money in the bank or stocks. I too am going to get married after getting a house, we are planning to have a big wedding too so thats more saving up we have to do. Now if I won the lottery or something I would be good with my money, lol....but thats a long shot! :)

Stock investments is a good option but you should also consider forex investments. I do both stock and forex trading so if you want any tips just ask me. Take Care.

It is good toinvest in fixed assets as well as the more volatile ones..Property is always a good medium to long term investment and even though there may be a slump in the market, if you hold on long enough to the property..It will always gain value long term..I learned that from my dad as he was in the property game.Now I bought one third of an partment in London..I want to follow his fotsteps..I also run my own private investment club and give my investors 2.55 weekly return on their investment and sometimes bonuses and they are very happy. I also moderate on a private investment forum and I have a good reputation two years or more online now. I have worked and still am working hard but there are too many scams out there and I want to provide an honeset service to my friends.. These are my business blogs..Also one Canadian friend is my business partner in many things too..His name is Dale..also has great reputation.. http://jeminvest.blogspot.com/ http://unityblog1.blogspot.com/ http://unityberrytree.blogspot.com/

I believe, if I have earned enough money one day, I would invest in the fixed asset. Nice to hear that you are follwing with your dad's footsteps. Good luck to you for that. Regarding to business blogs, I would spend some time on them once I've got the time during the weekend. Thanks for sharing. Andy

I do have an investment but my money is in a personal business. I am into computer rentals. I also do desktop publishing and graphic designing. Now I have invested my time on freelance writing where I am earning more. I love doing this kind of job and it was really rewarding if you could do the job well.

Every Dad is proud of their children, and Andy is u have now made point to earn from Investing in stock market. I think both the Shanghai Composite and BSE/ Sensex (I am from India) are now in the Jittery phase, and you can still wait for some more months, may be upto the end of this year. Also the Subprime Crisis, ripple created by US, has temporarily subsided and may rise its head, at the end of the, which is what the experts feel.

stock market - studying and playing the stock market can be a profitable venture
I'm a full-time stock trader. It has its ups and downs, literally. Sometimes you gain, sometimes you lose. The bottom line is you study it, learn the game, and play it wisely. Do that and you can make decent returns on your investments. You'll need the virtues of patience, discipline, and financial intelligence. Good luck!

I have not started investing in any stocks, fund and realty. I had spend substantial part of the savings on the house which my parents left it for me to repair it, bring it to some reasonable shape where it is now habitable. I am undergoing training in mutul fund sub-brokership and once that is over, not only I will invest, I will get others to invest in mutual fund.

As of now I have no investments yet. I've heard about this stocks investment a lot of time and I also know that it needed a large amount of money. I don't really know if its safe but I do hope to have one someday.
