First post and have never invested money into anything let alone any sort of saving account.
But now I'm going on thirty something I really need to build some sort of wealth for the future family and all that kind of stuff. So I started reading book and studying all kinds of investment strategies Shares/Stocks, Managed Funds, Bonds, CFD's, Forex, and the list goes on. Right now Forex is where my time as the adds sucked my in showing how easy its to make with an automated trading system. With drawdowns and other factors I've come to realise there's no get rich quick scheme to be found.
So has my title for those who have been there and done that and what would of you done differently. I can't focus on where to begin but my hunch tells me a managed fund since I've only got a couple of grand to invest.
Sorry for the long post but I appreciate you comments/guidance if you will.
