So the first question I’m going to ask is: “How much are you willing to lose?”
If the answer is NOTHING, then you have to just accumulate the money in a money market account where you will earn almost nothing — but you can’t lose a penny.
Since your time horizon is so short, don’t start risking money in the stock market. Over the short term, the odds are against you!
And even more so, because the markets re going to be more volatile as the election approaches.
