Hey I haven’t posted on here much if any, but I enjoy reading on market talk from time to time. This is probably too wide of a question, but if you were getting out of college soon and getting a job, where would you put your money? I’m single and want to keep as much money as possible. I am anxious about the state of the economy and country. One thing I’m interested in is buying physical metals along with some stocks, but really not sure. Thank you.
If your company matches 401k, invest in that up to the company match, into probably a lifecycle fund (because they tend to be popular options in company 401k elections and generally are one of the better options they offer).
Then invest the rest into a Roth ira, invest money into a vanguard global stock market index, every year.
Set and forget, revisit your portfolio around age 45 to 50 depending on your other assets at that time.
