Ok, Squilly I know I've given you some grief in the past, but I'd like to share with you some ideas about investing. I have been pretty successful using a particular strategy that someone shared with me about 10 years ago. For the most part, it has worked well for me. I starting using this in my IRA in 2006 and since that time my account is up 142%. So, to get started, I want to ask you a few questions: 1. How old are you? 2. Do you have an online brokerage account, ie. TDameritrade, Scottrade, E-Trade, etc. 3. How much do you have to initially invest? 4. What are your goals for this money?
