Where must I put my money? Where can I invest now?

These two crucial questions are faced by every investor today.

The best returns from the stock market would have been made if one had invested when the Sensex was at 6000 levels or less. Now, with it so volatile chances of making a big buck have faded.

What about real estate? Property seems to be booming, making one wonder if the bubble will burst in the near future.

Gold, too, has touched great highs.

With interest rates are on the rise, bank fixed deposits do appear more appealing.
