1 week Investment help Reddit     

I just started looking into investing before the election and made a small profit and quickly realized I’m way over my head.

I have ~60k in savings. 40K of which will be required for a house downpayment in April. I’m currently invested in DKNG, PLUG, SE, ENPH, and FSR with a total of ~6k invested. Through work, I have a 401k (Thrift Savings Plan) and a separate retirement plan from a previous job.

I’m curious how I can best manage my portfolio before I put that 40k down into a house. As of now, I plan on just leaving the required downpayment in savings and investing some of that extra cash. Is this wise? Would it be better to invest heavier but in something low-yield and relatively safe? I feel like a four-month investment plan is not nearly enough time to have decent returns but stay safe, no?

I work as a wildland firefighter so my paychecks are a lot smaller this time of year and I would like to supplement them.

Any advice is much appreciated.
