An honest risk-assessment

Think about how much risk you are willing to tolerate:

  • If you are looking for quicker returns, you may prefer a more volatile portfolio of individual stocks, ETFs, or high-risk mutual funds.
  • However, if you want to build your portfolio for retirement or savings, you might desire a low-risk portfolio of CD’s, bonds, or low-risk mutual funds.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Having an effectively diversified portfolio will ensure that if one of your investments moves down, your overall investments will still keep you moving forward.

Mutual funds are a good way to diversify because they are already diversified to represent the index markets.

Decide for how long you want to invest to best evaluate your portfolio for the future.

A short term investment portfolio will likely be riskier than long term retirement portfolios.

Some key details that can really influence how well your portfolio performs:

  • Taxes. Understand how your taxes can affect your investments, and even limit how well they perform.
  • Trading fees. It can either cost or save you some money if you're paying attention to it.

Don't forget about your investments. A market crash can spell disaster for a lot of investors' retirement and savings funds.

Be aware of what you invest in and pay attention to the big stuff.

IDEA

Three essentials for successful investing: Invest in things you understand with low fees and minimal taxes.

Taxes can take a massive chunk of your investments' future earnings, so minimize their impact as much as possible. With long-term investments, first max out your 401k, Roth IRA, and SEP-IRA, since they offer a tax benefit either when you deposit or withdraw the money.

What happens to your money

Banks don’t like to give away their money. That mindset is reflected in the interest rates of checking and savings accounts of 0,5% and 0.9% avg. annual interest respectively.

When you deposit your money in the bank, the bank turns around and invests that money at 7% a year or more. After they collect their profit, they give a tiny shaving of it to you.
