    A Dive Into Stock Market Investing

    A Dive Into Stock Market Investing

    It all started the summer of 2017. As many people do,while scrolling through YouTube and i came across a video about investing in the stock market. The video heavily glorified the market and overly advertised the fantasy of getting rich quick. As a recent High School graduate with no intention of attending college i immediately became interested. I began to dive more into to the YouTube universe. Watching many Stock Market "gurus'' and Virtual Mentors. A few caught my eye like Ricky Gutierrez , Jeremy From Financial Education and others. Quickly understanding the basics of investing in the stock market i wanted to know more. I decided to study from the legend Warren Buffet. In doing so, i came across The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham. With all that knowledge i consumed my clueless 17 year old self was optimistic.

    Robinhood vs. Stash

    Robinhood vs. Stash

    When it comes to long term options for accumulating financial profits, nothing is as secure as the stock market. This day and age, it is not common knowledge that even the average Joe can make a shiny penny off investing in stocks, provided they do their research and play their cards right. With the cost of living on a climb, financial security is guaranteed to no one. Therefore, the impact investing your side cash into America’s open market can have on your life should be too obvious to ignore. I like to consider it as a savings account that puts your money to work, with the potential to see profits no bank in the world could match.
