    How do you invest?

    What do you invest in?
    With a brief explanation of your investments.

    Just a general survey and hopefully advice for those who don't know how and what to invest in.

    Roughly half in several major blue-chip stocks, the rest is in gold and silver bullion and numismatics.

    Your poll reminded me -- we lease a condo, but we're breaking even on that at the moment.

    Re: How do you invest?

    I'm pretty spread out with mine.

    My 401k is geared for aggressive earning, weekly fixed deposit into a savings account, buy or sell individual stocks using the value investment strategy, hold notes on a private p2p lending service, as well as playing lightly in the Forex market.

    I don't.

    I'm currently paying off education loans, and since the interest on some of them is higher than I would get in any investment (barring extreme luck), I probably won't for a bit.
    Education.

    Aggressive stocks, Real estate, 401k, high yield savings accounts.

    This may not be quite the answer you were looking for but I feel it's a valid one: My education is my primary investment at the moment.

    That counts, it can have a measurable rate of return.
