Hey guys figured I'd start here and then take my questions to a professional. I have about $7K i've been thinking about investing. However I've never invested before (being a grad student extra money to invest is really hard to come by). Anyone have any advice? Is now a decent time since the economy is going nuts? I'd assume if i bought now and held stocks for a long time they would have to go up if stock selections were wise. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
