One of the most difficult aspects of finding sound investment advice is talking to people that aren’t trying to sell you something. So where can you go and who can you talk to without getting caught in a hidden agenda? Well here’s a list of a few resources I’ve uncovered through the years that have helped in my financial understanding.
For starters, if you’re looking for basic information on stocks and bonds, you’ll find it hard to get a better resource than Investopedia.com. This site has a wealth of information that’s all free and available to the public. Since the site is very robust, it’s likely it can answer almost any financial investing questions you might have.
Having been an investor for the better part of a decade now, I believe that I have finally seen the light.
The only problem is, the light wasn’t that bright, it was actually kind of dark and murky and not as illuminating as one would hope.
In the world of investing and financials, the light given off is also murky and a bit on the faint side.
Why is this?
Well that’s a simple question and here is the simple answer: money is involved.
Every time you earn a dollar via any form of “investing” or “trading”, you do so at the expense of your fellow man or woman.
What’s that? You earned that money you say? Actually, no…in truth, you siphoned that money from a fellow human being.
If you lost money in a market, one of your fellow human beings siphoned that money away from you.
