Your mixing everything up. There are mainly 3 investment
categories, stocks, bonds and cash with many variations and
combinations of each. There are growth stocks, mid cap stocks
and small cap stocks. There are short bonds, intermediate
bonds and long term bonds. All of these stocks and bonds carry
various kinds of risks. Then there are international stocks and
bonds. there are sector funds and single stock investments.
There are many ways to invest your money, such as forex
mutual funds and etf’s.You can use a broker to make your
investments or a financial planner. Best if you take the time
to learn all these things before investing.
Oil and gold fall under single stock or commodity sectors.
