Hi everyone ! Great to see the wealth of experience I hope to tap into from these forums. I support myself and my partner on an income of $80,000 (no kids yet) but we do have a rental property that we own (we are currently renting elsewhere for cheaper). I was thinking that since the economy is so turbulent, it would be a good time to pick up some shares for cheap and keep them as a long-term strategy (3 years+). I have created a watchlist and just watching mainly staples and business that have grown to asian regions as well. Is stocks the way to go at the moment ? Should I be looking at anything else ? We have no other debt except for our mortgage and study debt of about 80k for my partner that will only kick in a couple of years, he has gone back to law school.
