Look up a man named Mo Ansari. He is a very knowledgeable investor and financial planner. Don't get swallowed up in the "hand wringing", "chicken
little" sky is falling down crap. www.moeezansari.com
Study the financial markets and read some informed economists and investors. You said you are college educated, so do some reading.
If you start flopping around and buying guns and gold and all that other craziness your headaches will just get worse. If you buy gold now you are
buying at the top of the market and you're just going to get screwed, besides, when was the last time you ate a gold sandwich.
Solid, diversified investing handled by a stable and professional money market manager is the kind of place to park your hard earned money, that's
where I park my money. Personally, I'm involved with Franklin Templeton Funds, my rate of return has averaged over 12% over a 15 + yr. history. The
news mongers are really Fear Mongers. Greed and Fear are the triggers, they play on peoples ignorance and emotions, don't fall for it.
Don't get caught up in trying to time markets or gamble on individual stocks either, it never works. You're better off going to the Indian Casino
playing the slots or pitching quarters behind the local liquor store for crying out loud. Trust your gut and the information you read, ask questions
of tried and true financial professionals. The message boards on abovetopsecret are not the place to get financial information. For crying out loud,
you're listening to a bunch of anonymous nuts who do not have your best interest at heart. They mean well, but trust me, the most successful guys on
the planet are not usually posting on these forums, if you know what I mean. No offense to the rest of you, but some of the garbage I read hear hurts
my freaking head.
