"All eggs should not be put in one basket" is the key mantra for good investment. Likewise you may decide your investment strategy. Please remember that shares may provide good return, but investing in shares is risky too. Sometimes you may also loose your money. For a common investor, who has no knowledge about investment in shares, should invest money in mutual fund schemes , bank deposits and post office deposits. All the best.Answered by keshav singhal, 07 Aug '08 09:01 am
