    What I wanted to know was how one could invest into the stock market with as little money as possible. I stumbled across this website, http://www.sharebuilder.com. It's an online brokerage firm that allows you to start your portfolio with as little as $25.00. Then monthly, you can choose to have money withdrawn from your bank account in whatever increment you choose ($25.00 min). This is a reputable service, but still I chose send a check monthly instead through the mail, which is deposited into your account.

    I'll check it out. Thanks!

    Seems rather difficult to invest small sums, but I'm going to look at it first.

    Thanks Malik for the tip. I too am going to check them out and see what's up. If all that is needed to start is $25.00, this makes investing available to everyone. I'll report back also.

    What about gold and silver investing?

    You can take about $30 to acquire an ounce of silver.

    Lol 25 dollar investment.

    Unless you're incredibly lucky, like buying Whole Foods when it was $6, you're $25 won't do anything. You couldn't afford most stocks. What's more, the pay-out wouldn't be much.

    yeah right. look at everything the market has taken from individuals in the last 10 years. If all you have is $25, put it under your mattress where it is safe. How many times will people fall for the same thing? If you are going to put any money anywhere.. put it together with other people that you know and start something cooperative. Do not send your money to some financial witch doctor to do some magic and give you more than you had before. If the last 10 years have not made that crystal clear to folks than they need to be taken advantage of.
