How To Invest In The Stock Market For Beginners In 2018 [GUEST POST]


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!

  1. One of the best financial decisions I've ever made was learning how to invest in the stock market and actually investing my money into it. I highly recommend everyone learn about the stock market and give it a shot!

  2. Really solid advice on beginning to invest in the stock market. I do the same kinds of videos on my channel as well.

  3. it feels even blue chips will leave you bag holding for a month before you see profit. the markets been going sideways and hasn't come close to January highs and the S&P is being held up by a small concentration of companies. OPEC's deal is probably the only reason we aren't red today again in my opinion.
