Default Stock Market Volatility Keep Growing

The stock market’s fear gauge dropped on Wednesday to its lowest level since Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy in the fall of 2008, flirting with an important benchmark that signifies growing stability and confidence in stocks.
Professional options traders, however, say the day’s move might be temporary. They point to signs that suggest investors are bracing for more volatility in the stock market, not less, in the weeks and months ahead.

The Chicago Board Options Exchange’s volatility index, or VIX, fell to 20.05 in the first hour of trading, the lowest intraday point since August 2008, before Lehman filed for bankruptcy and Bank of America announced plans to buy Merrill Lynch.

The VIX then rebounded as the session wore on, closing the day at 20.48, up a fraction of 1%.

Default Put your thoughts on Where should I Invest my money

Great Tips of where to invest the money at these days

So Where should I Invest my money..... please feel free to bring your comments

Equities

Whether you’re in your 20s, 40s or 60s, your portfolio must include emerging sectors (nanotechnology, biotech, fuel cells) and mature sectors (manufacturing, pharmaceutical, energy, retail, consumer durables). Pick up a smattering of index company shares (General Electric Co., Intel, Cisco, Pfizer, Kraft Foods) and shares of midcap and small cap firms. If your capital is small, say $1,500, invest in exchange traded funds (ETF) such as those offered by Dow Jones or S&P to obtain tax benefits. Mutual funds are solid, time-trusted investment vehicles. Forbes”magazine lists Bruce Fund No. 1 in its “Honor Roll” for 2009. Next in line is Meridian Value, which selects undervalued firms with growth potential. Pick funds that include stocks in high-growth sectors in emerging economies.

Bonds

Long-term inflation indexed zero coupon bonds should be a part of your tax-deferred retirement account at any age, or if you need to put kids through college 10 years from now. Say you are about 15 years away from retirement, around 40 percent of your portfolio must consist of bonds. If you can tolerate more risk, increase your equity exposure. Fixed income investors must include both high-yield corporate bonds and short-term U.S. Treasury bonds to maximize yields and lower risk.

Foreign Currency

Hold part of your portfolio in nondollar assets such as foreign currencies by investing in a currency ETF. Be prepared to book losses if foreign currencies depreciate against the U.S. dollar. To spread risk, invest in a combination of currencies that are less interconnected macroeconomically.
