    The people who end up screwed in the stock market are those who think they have a "system".

    Har har.

    If you're under 40, and you don't want an advisor, here's your "strategy":

    75% - VTI
    25% - VXUS

    The average "active investor" has realized a 3.98% return over the last 30 years (DALBAR study). Why? Because people think they're smarter than the market.

    Har har.

    Pile as much as you can into that "portfolio" until you're about 55 or so. Then go see an advisor for some retirement planning.

    Sheesh.

    There are many ways to invest in the market. For instance there is a big difference in risk between penny stocks and buying shares in the S&P500 index. If you do a little homework you should certainly be able to outperform CDs or Treasuries with limited risk.
