I have opened a share trading account with my bank but now I have no idea what to do. There seems to be a lot of doom and gloom, I am 90% retired so I have a bit of time to read up. Seem that ETFs are best to start with as the fund manager does the heavy lifting. Does the old saying to "Buy, buy, buy when everyone says sell, sell, sell" still apply? A family member has SWTZ (Switzer) shares and he is reasonably happy with them, any opinions or first hand experiences with similar funds? Remember that I'm a noob so not too many short hand notations please.
