What’s the best short term, lowest risk way for a 17 year old to invest, say $100?

Stocks? Bonds? Mutal funds?

I’m not looking to have a million or so by retirement, just some cash to buy a car (or something) sometime next year. Although, a million would be nice… :smiley:

Your financial advice is greatly appreciated.


Simple answer: There is no short term low risk way to invest $100 and get back a car next year. (In fact, the only high risk way I can think of is lottery tickets.)

This is a matter of opinion, not fact, so I’ll close this thread. Feel free to repost in the In My Humble Opinion forum.
