I make roughly $35,000 a year.
I have a few direct questions:
1). How much money should I invest into an index fund? (Please do not give a game of semantics on the word 'should'; I simply mean what is the most feasible investment into an index fund with my salary.)
2). Do I need to pay attention to the stocks whatever, or simply let it sit?
3). What is the return investment, or 'likely', 'plausible' investment, based on the money that you suggest I should be in the market for?
