The Ultimate Guide to Investing
What is Investing?
Investing involves purchasing an asset at a lower price than you intend to sell it for. Once you sell the asset for more than you paid for, you would have made a profit. This simple explanation is the foundation on which the entire world of investments rests. The complicated part is making present decisions to determine if it will increase in value in the future.
When it comes to what you can invest in, there is a wide range of assets to choose from.
Investing makes use of the power of compounding and the risk-return tradeoff to achieve monetary growth.
