I rarely find threads(actually never) related to this topic on PF. Quite recently, my dad started investing in the stock market. With the market bullish, it is possible to make in a day's trading, what banks return in a year on fixed deposits. Now my dad laments having missed out on large returns by investing all these years in banks. There was a story of a guy who starting with little more than a 100 dollars in stock, over the years accumulated a net asset value of 10 million usd! The advertisements seen most on TV today are asset management related, even insurance related to the market. One can only hope the trend is maintained. Real estate also looks good, from where we live. So what are your investment strategies and how are your investments doing as of now?
