Investing may seem like a daunting task. There appears to be so much we need to know.

Yes, this takes effort when we might rather be doing something else, but once the planning is complete, we’re on our way.

* Stocks flatten out. The major North American indices ended pretty much flat on the week, as the U.S. Federal Reserve Board’s Open Market Committee on Wednesday raised its benchmark federal funds rate to 1.00% from 0.75%, reflecting robust job creation and employment rates as well as a 2% inflation rate that is near the Fed’s target. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index dipped -0.1% below breakeven on the week, weighed down by declines in financial and resource stocks. U.S. blue-chip S&P 500 Composite Index edged up 0.2% on the week, while the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.7%, putting the tech-weighted gauge ahead 9.6% year to to date. Gold gained 2% on the week, as bond yields inched down, and crude oil gained 0.6% but remained below US$50/barrel on the week.
