How To Invest In The Stock Market For Beginners In 2018! 💸

How to invest in 2018 for COMPLETE BEGINNERS!

Hello everybody and welcome to the video. Today we’ll be going over how to start investing in 2018 starting from SCRATCH! If you’re someone that’s looking to learn how to invest, this should be a great beginner video for you!

I first need to give the BIGGEST of thanks to Ryan Scribner. An absolute privilege to be featured on his channel… My appreciation truly cannot be expressed in words.

This video will be broken down into 3 main sections:

– What to expect when investing
– Getting your financial in order (We will touch on setting up an emergency fund and paying down any high-interest debt)
– Choosing your broker
– Choosing your investment account

– Establishing your asset allocation
– Choosing your investments
– Pros and cons of Stocks v Index Funds

– Rebalancing your portfolio
– Monthly contributions (PAC)

The video is on the lengthy side, so allocate some time where you can sit down and really focus on the content at hand.

Investing is one of the most powerful wealth generating tools available to us as human beings. Every single person who is generating a source of income should be taking advantage of this opportunity and learn how to invest!

Figure out a reasonable time horizon, then buy the target date retirement fund. If you want to go a little more complicated add some small cap value ETFs. Done.

Stingsz123 says:

Hey Ryan I got a question. Should index funds like S& P 500 (VOO) be treated the same as an Individual Stock in terms of purchasing?
For example, you know how people buy low and sell high on an individual stock? Does the same apply to long term investments like the S&P 500?
Should I buy an index fund regardless at what price it currently is if i plan on holding onto it for the long run? 10+ years

Musique Du Monde-MDM says:
