    Fair dos and good luck! I hope you get the reward for the hard work/stress
    It must cause!
    I think everyone should invest, if you don't need money within 5 years, it should be in the stock market.

    For amateurs:

    -pick a good fund, vanguard have a lot with low charges
    -reinvest dividends
    -buy and hold

    For professionals:

    -stock pick based on fundamentals and technical analysis. Look at P/E, dividend cover etc
    - rebalance portfolio if needed
    -reinvest dividends

    Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

    Use fundamental analysis to pick securities (stocks, bonds, options etc) and use technical analysis to buy in at a right price.

    Always buy a good security at a good price, never overpay no matter how good the company is. Sometimes it's best to look at low P/E stocks and pick the best from them.

    I don't have anymore to put in. You don't really lose money in the stock market, I mean it's very hard to lose money in the long run holding good businesses.

    I want to put in more, I want to have 100k in stocks. That will provide 4/5k a year alone in dividend income.
    exactly I have £9,000 in the stock market admittedly I don't manage it and am planning to expand that at some point but am putting money in other markets mainly rental equity company (property and cars with a 10% yearly return) £20k into gold bullion, a couple of investment diamonds for £5k and today I have been buying chateau d'yquem at £5000 a case as it an older vintage
