How to Invest Money in the Stock Market

You don't need a degree in finance to learn how to invest your money. You need plain, clear explanations of the most important—and practical—concepts.

Even though finance and investing sometimes seems like maze of jargon and conflicting advice (ETFs! REITs! Index funds! Penny stocks! Inflation! Taxes!), you can learn how to invest money and build real wealth in the stock market on your own.

This is our How to Invest guide; a series of articles written in plain English for the average investor. You can start from the ground up and learn only what you need to know from creating an online brokerage account to making your first trade to picking great stocks you can hold for years.
