some tips for the mutual funds investement are:

Just do it: The very first step you should take as someone trying to get into investing is set aside your fears and says just dot it.

There’s no harm in investing in what you know: Of course, you should only do this when you’re just getting your feet wet. Once you’ve gotten used to the markets another important consideration are the dangers of home bias.

Time frame is important: How long do you plan to hold an investment? Do you need the money in a year or is this for your retirement? “If it’s a short-term goal, the way you invest that money is going to be very different,” says Yamada. It’s a lot easier in my opinion, as well, to have a specific goal in mind before you jump head-first into really learning about investing anyway.
