There are no investments that are as secure as a CD or mutual fund. That is because these types of investments are insured by the government.
So do you have any suggestions that you may take a littler more risk but not as risky as the bullish stock market
Well you could invest in mutual funds that follow the S&P 500
The S&P 500 is full of solid companies
and where would I go to invest this a bank? or a stock broker or can you do this on etrade
You could do it on eTrade
or any of the major brokerage firms
Here's an example:
it seems like etrade is 9.99 In and out and the broker takes a percentage of interest on your investment. putting 100,000 in something like that with a broker seems crazy when they take 4% right away
Yes, I know....You can open up your own Vanguard account too and invest in that fund I just linked to
ok thx...I will look at that!
Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
not for now...just not a good investor and don't want to regret putting in something that is a loser.
If you would, please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
