    Mostly for rich people not for those who earn less than $2k.
    Attend a free stock seminar last week. Course fees $6500 no nets pay by credit card. Starting investment $2000. Total needed $8500. Mostly full-seated after hearing the money part all disappeared. I interested but no capital.

    if you're wise enough.. it is better to invest your money SAFELY than to let it sit in your bank. Inflation will over take the interest earn from your account.. meaning you'll loose money every year as you leave it in the bank.

    Of course, there's no such thing as 100% safe investments, so there's always a possibility of losing money.

    Instead of putting my money in the bank , ( savings acc - less than 1 percent PA) , i would put it in a Fixed D. acc which earns up to 15 % PA provided i leave it there for a long time with no withdrawal...or buy Government bonds which has abt 6% return PA....

    So no one buys stocks here?!

    there's a local funds forums at http://sgfunds.com/ covers everything from insurance to investments.. information overload for me anyway. Good thing is that it's a local forum, so the topics are also very local.

    Made some money during those CLOB days where, during the bull run, virtually any CLOB stock you buy would make money. Everybody jumped into the bandwagon - housewives, old folks, small retail investors, men in the street, etc. Many ppl made money this way thru these highly speculative CLOB stocks. Well, when it took a nose dive, just as many ppl got themselves burnt. I, for one, am still hanging on to some My shares. Enough for me. Have not dabble in stocks since then.
