I started investing when I was 16 and and very responsible with money but life took some loops and turns and now I find myself starting again at 36! I feel a sense of urgency to start making money but I don't want to blow all that I have again. I think I might open up a trading account but I don't really know what I should be doing: buying and selling everyday or holding for a long time? dividend? blue chip? s&p 500? EFT? reading financials???
Can someone just tell me what has worked for them?
Basically I can maybe gather $15K for investments and maybe just leave it somewhere without having to check it everyday. Although, if I knew how to trade it would be fun to be more interactive as well.
My goal is to at minimum make some money for retirement. My dream would be to start trading for REAL profit to live on.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks
