I have learned that investing in the stock market is not one of my best skills. First I tried trading and lost thousands. Then I tried investing in a diversified portfolio and fared better although 2 compaines went broke and I again lost thousands. When the banks around the world started going broke I chickened out and sold. I don't like tenants so I won't be going into the housing market.
This is where I need your help. I would like to reinvest in an index this time around. Are there really safe instruments around that can be sold/purchased just as quickly as shares and have no way of collapsing ? I don't really know how they are set up, but I wouldn't want them to be organised by some company that can go broke one day and the instrument dissapears off the ASX along with my money. Nor a product that forces me to sell in years from now.
Thanks for your advice.
