So, looking at the markets it doesn’t seem like a bad time to buy. Thoughts? Is it as easy as just buying “1 share of S&P” where would you put money today?

There are ETFs that track the S&P 500 and other indexes. VTI is the Vanguard S&P tracker. Your returns will generally follow the market. Over the course of a 40 year period, you can expect an average return of 7% a year.

OP - open up an account on Robin Hood or M1. These are both investment platforms that allow you to invest small amounts with little or no fees. Start with index funds – VOO is one of the ETFs that tracks the S&P 500 and VTI is one of the ETFs the tracks the broader market. Both are a great places to start. Invest when you feel like you’re ready. Don’t feel like you have to time the market exactly. In a couple of years when the S&P hits 4000, you won’t remember whether you got in at 1900 or 2200.

The fact that people think this is a good time to buy the dip makes me think we are going to go a lot lower. To put it in perspective - we are currently around the same level we were at in December 2018 while the economic outlook is significantly worse.

I don’t think the market will go up when vaccine came up. That just the hope. The market will build confidence when spread slows with government funding

Robinhood crashes too often. Fidelity is my choice. This is definitely an opportunity. Much like in ‘08/‘09 during the great financial recession.

Can’t believe they went to $99 per share a few days ago. Short term they have to get through many hurdles but nonetheless, good long term move
