Well I don't know. Good is only defined by you. What might be good for me might be disastrous for you.

What are your goals? How much do you have? These are some of the questions you need to answer. Do you have a trading plan? I might post mine here to help.

Most of all, you need to be sure of your own decisions. Asking for what trades are good is a sure way to lose your money. I could tell you what to trade then trade against you and basically just rob you.

Learn your own system to trade. Do you have good resources?

It's always good to have at least a basic foundation of fundamental investment knowledge whether you're a beginner to investing or working with a professional financial advisor. Below basic principles that you should be able to understand and apply when you are looking to potentially invest your money or evaluate an investment opportunity. You'll find that the most important points pertaining to investing are quite logical and require just good common sense. The first step is to make the decision to start investing. If you've never invested your money, you're probably not comfortable with making any investment decisions or moves in the market because you have little or no experience. It's always difficult to find somewhere to begin. Even if you find a trusted financial advisor, it is still worth your time to educate yourself, so you can participate in the process of investing your money and so that you may be able to ask good questions. The more you understand the reasons behind the advice you're getting, the more comfortable you will be with the direction you've chosen.

While there are several investment options to choose from, an investor still requires a substantial amount of capital to build a diversified portfolio. This capital need can be a special challenge for young investors, as they may have minimal savings to invest. Thus, Tamir Zoltovski (Co-founder of Moneta International UAB) says ETFs (exchange-traded funds) make it probable to have a diversified portfolio with comparatively low investment thresholds.

Every investment choice should be made based on the risk involved for the individual, their investment goals and strategies. What is right for one investor may not be for another. Keep these basic differences and similarities in mind as you research your investments.

CrazyCzdo short pablum answer - Be careful not to conflate investments with trades.  None of the options in the OP are investments.  They are all trades. A transaction is only an investment if you are  willing and able, if needed, to materially participate in the outcome .  Everything else is a trade.

A professional trader is actually managing the risks associated with their invested capital so those who does not learn and invest into the market which they does not knew anything about eventually ends up blowing entire account.

Yeah, Risks are going to be everywhere and you are going to be at brim at your initial stage, so you must learn about the Market and learn to do a proper analysis of the Market before getting involved.

If there is a risk there must be reward too, our goal is determined when probabilities are on our side so we get positive expectation of gain. It suffices to make correct predictions on average, not every time.

In debt funds, this amount is invested in fixed-income securities, including government and corporate bonds, bonds, and other long-term fixed-income securities. Debt funds may have different risk profiles depending on the types of securities held in the portfolio.

I would think about it, but without a doubt ... I think ETFs are the best option.

Apart from ETFs I also like to invest in stock using CFD contracts at Hotforex. This contract doesn't pay dividend but well you don't need US broker access to which could be quite complicated due to regulation, also transaction costs seems to be lower.
