Have you ever come across someone who is not familiar with the stock market at all? I mean, not knowing it as a viable investment option. I met someone at work recently who knew all about CD and savings accounts, but not the stock market. He didn’t have a retirement saving plan and never bought a mutual fund or an index fund.
I am going to write about some very basic topics of stock investing, like what kind of market is a stock market and why it’s a very good investment option for the long term.
