I bring you - the T25

I invested $50 in the stock market today, and in so doing I created what I affectionately refer to as the T25 - my own little index of shares.

It is made up of stocks available on American stock exchanges, and they are connected to me in one way or another: Norwegian, Baltimorean, products I own / consume, places I have worked, or I just have a liking for...

How would your index be made up?

After day one I am down about a percent, or $.50 (the smarter ones amongst you might have suggested I kept shush and "started" this tomorrow), but you know... the Dow was down 2%, the S&P500 down 1.13% and the Nasdaq down 0.83% today so, I suppose I did just fine (Mr Buffet lost almost 5% today, I could only afford 0.000016 of a share in Berkshire Hathaway, but at this rate I will catch up with the Sage, eventually)

So, let me introduce you to: The T25
