You could, BUT know that 8/10 Mutual Funds under perform their respective benchmarks and the US Market Index (S&P500). Not only that, they charge on average 2% in annual management expense fees whether they make you money or not! High finance and investment companies are unfortunately known to overcharge and under perform, leaving you with tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket.
A low-cost index fund that tracks the broader US Market is a much better alternative than most Mutual Funds. Yet buying and holding them presents it's own set of problems. By holding a passive index fund, you are essentially letting go of the wheel of your own finances and are at the mercy of the markets. If the markets drop you are left holding for years till you can hopefully break-even. After all, when did being passive in anything in life become OK? You wouldn't be passive in your relationships or business so why be passive in your investments?
To be completely clear, the investment products you buy and sell are done so in YOUR account. No one else should have access to your investment/brokerage account. This is why we provide our personal recommendations and guidance on what stocks should be held, which ones should be sold and which ones should be added. We make it extremely easy to understand and implement.

No, you do not have to constantly monitor the markets or even your portfolio. In fact, we recommend NOT looking your portfolio every day or even every week, as most market occurrences and news are only relevant in the short-term and are not even a blip on the radar when it comes to the long-term, which is what the Alpha Investment Portfolio is all about. All you need to keep an eye for on a weekly basis is for our communications and updates to you and implement any suggestions we provide.
