The Next Episode Episode Episode Episode........

Well the job i had been working at for the past four and half years finally went belly up, and now i am out of a job. Not the end of the world, since it was just part time and i still am a student, but it still sucks. In addition to looking for a new part time job, i was thinking about investing and growing my personal savings (i managed to save a pretty decent chunk o' change from my old job) The only problem is, i dont know shit about doing that. Does anyone know where i could start my quest to learn how to work something like that,  have some advice, anything? Or would it be in my best interest to forget about it? i look forward to see what input everyone has.  Even general tips for building my personal wealth would be valuable.. thanks everyone!

  5. Although my expertise lies elsewhere, I invest a large portion of my money in Rogers Sugar Income Fund. It pays an awesome dividend, and the trends are pretty damn predictable. It's worth checking out.

  9. unless you have a substantial savings like $10000+ that you are willing to tie up and not spend any of for some time, dont bother. If you come up with an emergency and you need the cash......it may not be profitable.

  10. Investing is usually a good idea. The real question is, what will you invest in. I'd consider myself a small time stock trader. It's not guaranteed to make you rich, but if you play the cards right and know how stocks work it's usually a good investment. :)
    Best of luck to ya. :)

  13. Don't worry man, you will bounce back better than before. Just tough it out with less things for a while. I guess what you could do is save on food. Like cook your meals at home, and no movie nights for a couple of months. Simple stuff. There are a lot of free trial offers on the net that you can look into to save money and to pass the time with. I know Eve Online has a 14 day free trial for example.

  14. CDs from the bank won't make you rich, but they're a safe safe bet and can get you a decent investment

  16. depends on how active you are planning on being. can always invest in some government bonds or CDs with the highest interest. day trading if you're more active. i think there are some currency trading guides out there

  18. Well if your capital is larger then 10.000 euro's then you can go and invest half and save the other half, and watch your capital grow (slowly), But having less then that its better to put it on a piggybank and search for a new job...

  19. Well do you have a savings account and a checking account or just one. I would suggest having both. What I do is I deposit all of my money to my checking, and have it transfer around $300 a month to my savings, since I get paid monthly. Also ask your bank if they have any savings programs, for instance when you use your debit card and you don't end up with a whole dollar amount it will round up and put the rest into your savings. Just little things like that. Hope this is of some help to you. Good luck!

  31. You could get a brokerage account if your willing to toss in like $2,000-$10,000. You would just leave that alone for a few years and you should be able to make a good bit of money.
