Been saving in a HTB isa to buy our first property but after that will need to start putting money away elsewhere
There is no real way to open a book and start learning, in my experience, even though there are books, it just isn't the same because the knowledge works through action. Stupid question maybe but where did you all learn about this stuff? Reading this thread has made me realise I haven’t got a clue.
I am still a novice, and like anything you need to put in the hours in order to become a master at something.
I started a few years ago when Robin Hood came out. Robin Hood and cash app has changed the investment game. The difficulty was the barrier of entry before these types of apps.
Now you can use a program like that, and some of you have mentioned 212, and just invest in tried and true companies.
After you take the dive, reading threads like this and investopedia(etc), you then start the education.
I watch a few people on youtube who trade all day and soak up game through them. By me forcing myself to engage in investment research and discussion everyday, I'm learning something new each time, which is what they don't tell you. The real information isn't about which companies to invest in, but how to use your assets as leverage, and tax avoidance and reduction.
I just learned that you could use your retirement account as a one time tax-free down payment up to $10,000, as a first time home buyer. So now I am considering rolling over my retirement accounts into one, so that if I need to use that 10k, I have it as an option.
