So, what is the #1 Armchair Investing Strategy? It's a simple approach that uses just three mutual funds.

How much money is invested in each fund? That's the simplest part of the #1 Armchair Investing Strategy -- an equal portion in each! For every $1,000 that Lewis and Lynette invest in the #1 Armchair Investing Strategy, they put $333.33 in each market fund.
