Try and find a unit trust or mutual fund that will not try and trade the markets. Fidelity Magellan thought it would be clever and trade out of the stock market into high yielding fixed interest when its managers felt that technology growth would pause. They lost their position in a rising market.
In the short term, this sort of trading can improve performance. In the long term (which is what we are looking at) sooner or later a disaster will occur.

Don't we all wish we could identify that next big, breakout stock and jump in before everyone else? Investment professional Tobin Smith believes he's developed a solid means to that end, and he lays it out with contagious confidence in ChangeWave Investing. His intriguing approach begins with a detailed system for identifying the most promising of future highfliers--employing protocols that, Smith writes, "delivered more than 150 percent annualized gains since 1995 and more than 430 percent gain per stock pick in 1999 alone." Smith then turbocharges this approach with what he calls "open-source investing," using the same free-flowing method of information exchange that's proven so successful in the Linux software community. Much in the way ever-tweaking programmers have continually improved Linux, Smith contends, investors can enhance his own aggressive growth-stock model.
Will it work? Investors who support Smith's contention and play along, combining his advice with their own collective expertise, should be able to upgrade the financial "source code" of New Economy, making it available to all participants.Click here for more details and online purchase opportunity.

If you are interested in extending your healthy lifespan, by whatever means, you need money to pay for it. Fortunately the enormous growth in technology provides the means for you as long as you have a little money to start with. If you are young, you probably don't need much in the way of supplements and barring accidents or freak infectious diseases, you won't have more than an intellectual curiosity in cryopreservation. Unless you have tens of thousands of dollars right away, the best way to take part in the rising tide of technology is to invest in a mutual fund or unit trust, which can even be done by a monthly savings plan.
But for those of you wishing to invest in stocks right away, or for that matter just to read about what is going on, here is a list of stocks with web links to their home pages. This list is far from exhaustive. You can set up your own email feed of news and daily quotations entirely free from a service run by Sony called Infobeat. Even if you have nothing to invest at the moment, this is a good education into the stock market, and the news reports will interest you as a life extensionist.
If you are young and you think that you may want cryopreservation if you die, then now is the time to start investing in technology, even if you are not sure whether you will sign up or not. Once you have $3000 invested in technology, ten years later you should be able to afford a revocable trust with the Cryonics Institute. If at that time you decide that cryonics is not for you, then you have this lump sum for something else - a deposit on a house, a new car or whatever you fancy, or just let it grow into your retirement fund. Of course in another ten years time, it may well have grown into $300,000 and so on. The very rough rule for technology is ten times growth every decade. The stock markets do go down as well as up, but in the long term (decades) the technology sector must go up or civilisation itself will fail, so you won't be there to worry about it. As a species we are totally hooked on technology - imagine what would happen if things like communication, electrical power, or transport were to fail. There are many problems, but they get solved by advances in technology. If these advances cease, we would be overwhelmed by the problems.
Please advise if any of the links are faulty, or if there is a link I have not found to the companies unlinked. I am looking for links to the company's own web page, not news pages run by other people. I am not that familiar with unit trusts and mutual funds - any suggestions would be appreciated, but do see my note at the end. Email me by clicking here.
