Customer Question

i'm 60, want to work 10 more years
I have money in my checking account and I feel like I can get a better return than the bank, something I know everyone would agree with.
I have $78,000 in my account. What's a low risk way to invest in cases similar to mine?
Thanks!

very helpful. If I want to say invest in a mutual fund or any of the things on the list, where do I go? Ameritrade? Do they sell stocks and bonds?
Lost on this issue and I know how critical it is. Thanks!!

Expert:  bkb1956 replied 4 months ago.

You most certainly can use Ameritrade or eTrade or you can use a conventional broker such as Fidelity, Charles Schwab, etc.

Doing your own research before investing will also help.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.
