I was listening to Market Place Money on the radio, and here’s the tried and true still being advised: Start investing, or re-entering the market with a small amount of cash. In some cases, this could be as little as $50.00-$100.00. In other cases, you might be required to have a minimum of several hundred, on up. In addition to starting with a small amount of money, start with a small number of stocks, or funds. Diversify. Diversify. Diversify. And before you invest, pay down your debt. As always, if you have a financial advisor, talk with them before making any big investments.
