I've only been an active investor for about 2 weeks now... and index funds are the route I have taken. After alot of research (much of it on this site) I came to the conclusion that for someone who isn't a saavy investor type (thats me) this was a good strategy. Basically I took a decent amount of cash that was sitting in my "high interest savings account" (a joke) and went with a 25% bonds, 25% int'l equity, 25% US equity, and 25% Cdn equity allocation. Recently I've beefed up my Cdn. and U.S position a bit.

I know things can go south quickly, but I am really quite surprised at how successful I have been with this simple investment. I really feel like a fool for having so much cash sitting in a savings account for so long, not working for me. My appetite for learning about investing seems to know no bounds these days.
