    Depends on what your goals are as an investor. If you are yenogur and can take more risk, you can invest in more risky assets. If your investment horizon is shorter, you may want to invest in more less risky assets such as bonds. Its important to find the correct mix between them. A rule of thumb is to take your age and subtract it from 100. For example, if you are 30, you should invest 70 percent in stocks and 30 percent in bonds.Mutual Funds are a good investment for beginners, every mutual fund trades like a stock at the end of the day. Stay away from Mutual Funds with load fees, there are many that are offered commission free, depending on your broker. Each Mutual Fund also gives you the mix of assets it has (bonds vs. stocks). The more bonds you have, the less risk.For a beginning investor, a S P 500 Index fund would not be a bad idea. Its a fund of assets mixed together to mimic the returns on the market. You will not see abnormal returns over the market because the risk you take with this investment is relative to the index.Also, if you want to control your own investments, you should look into an online broker such as Sharebuilder, Etrade, Scottrade, and Ameritrade. Shop around for different features that work for beginners and find the cheapest commission. Good luck!
