I'm not sure what you are asking regarding safety. If you mean the money disappearing because the broker you are investing with fails, be sure your brokerage firm has Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) coverage. That coverage would return your account value on the date the firm fails if that should happen. SIPC coverage DOES NOT reimburse you for losses you experience in the markets. With SIPC coverage, you will be as safe as any investor can be up to your brokerage firms account insurance level. Do a Google search on SIPC if ytou have any additional questions or want to learn more about SIPC coverage.
