Before you start investing there are some basics you need to know, and a few things you need to think about.
There are so many elements to the financial markets that you could spend your whole life learning. All the information is out there and available to you but where do you start? The beginning is probably the most over whelming part, this is probably why a lot of people do not bother or give up on the idea.
This is why I have created this site and blog, in the hope I can make it easier and help people start investing.
Below I have drawn up what I believe you need to understand first and how this information fits together. If you start with these specific areas you will get to a basic understanding and readiness much quicker.
I have tried to break everything down in to smaller, bite sized posts. Have a read through them and spend some time taking it in. The if you need more details you can google it, but at least you will know what you are searching for!
