From Wall Street to commodities, from derivatives to mutual funds, from currency to precious metals and minerals, from picking stocks to collecting baseball cards. The topic of investing is vast and widely applicable.
The concepts behind investing apply all areas of financial planning. A solid understanding of investing pays dividends. Remember that the same principle that applies to saving for retirement and education applies to all other kinds of investing: it’s the “time in” not the timing that is important.
The sooner you begin, the less you will have to ultimately contribute in to achieve your goals. The longer that compounding is able to work for you, the more you’ll have down the road per dollar invested. Gains become exponential.
