also, if you are going to invest in the stock market, try and invest in something you understand, if you know nothing about biochemistry (like me) dont invest. I have done a little investing on my own, (without my wife) and have tried to stick to things I can underatand. But for the most part, she is the wise one.
Exactly. Don't dump money on thigns just because your buddy says it would be good, or because you read it somewhere. Stick to industries you know. Study them, their history, their executives, etc. You need to be able to forsee things while investing in the stock market in order to actually achieve significant gains. Good luck to all.
