I asked in the trader thread, but it seems that's a bit different than what I'm looking for. Also, this seems to be the latest thread on the subject. I'm looking for low-moderate risk investments (that i can continually add more cash to), dividends not required, and I can wait 4-5 years for it to mature. I have done my best to do some reading (but I am still noob) and I think I should invest in index funds. However, I have a few concerns, namely:
1. Everyone says to not trust anyone. Don't trust your bank, don't trust mutual fund managers, don't trust brokers. Don't trust TL advice. So, who exactly do I trust? I have no idea where to begin.
2. Index funds basically ride the market, amirite? So if the euro and/or the dollar crashes the market I'm going to be in deep shit?
