Some OF THE ANSWERS
you'll find here
Do you feel like you should start investing? Do you feel that you don't know enough about it, and that even the more your read about it, the less you seem to know? Do you feel lost in the jungle of complicated financial terms?
I have made my first steps into the universe of investments a couple of years ago and I still remember I was lost. Nonetheless I find it astonishing how much people are reluctant, or don't find their way to investing, that while there are so many tools available.
It is true, even I, with a financial degree, have found it very difficult to find one central point of comprehensive information with everything I needed before feeling comfortable enough to start putting my money at work. I found it particularily hard to do so without stumbling into numerous sites of self-proclaimed investment gurus, promising astonishing returns, without any type of explanation or background information. That kind of harassing bullshit rather pushed me further away of investing rather than attracting me.
I want to take those barriers away, share my knowledge and show that anyone -even without a financial degree- with a little bit of cash surplus can, and should, take advantage of numerous existing and accessible systems to put his or her money at work, and by such let that money earn more money.
Simultaneously I want to explain the journey on how to become active on one specific platform: eToro. Not that there are no alternatives, nor that other options shouldn't be considered. I just find the social-trading aspect of it an extremely useful and accessible feature either if you want to make your first steps into investments, either deepen your knowledge about investing, by simply talking to other investors. I know it has helped me a great deal with that.
With this site I want to stick to the basics and explain them as simple as possible, so that if you were reluctant before, now you would feel comfortable enough in making your first steps into putting your money at work. This website does most certainly not give a complete overview, nor all details regarding the investment world. It has the sole purpose of giving a basic framework, explaining the basic principles and by using the basic terms to anyone who might be slightly interested. It sheds a light from my perspective upon the most important knowledge that is required to move ahead, but also counters the obstacles I have faced myself during the process. For more advanced information, I refer you to either financial courses, or to websites containing more advanced topics such as Investopedia.
