My foray into investing has been interesting to say the least. I fully funded my 2015 Roth IRA in April of this month. I was up approximately $36 at one point and now I'm in the red. Wow! What a bumpy ride. I can handle the ups and downs, but going into the red made me lose my breath a little.
I know that a week from now, things could be totally different. This investing thing is not for the light hearted. I have read quite a bit about investing and I understand that despite the ups and downs you are supposed to keep shoveling money in, but it's so hard to do when it keeps disappearing. :(
I ended April in the red, but I am excited to see what the end of May will bring. Keep your fingers crossed!
