Where do you Invest?

Spain
July 9, 2018 5:24pm CST
When it comes to investing there are quite a few option out there in the market. Those who require you to have at least $10,000.00 in your bank ready to invest and those who I call "start up" companies that you can start with as little as $5.00. I currently have a very large diversified portfolio. I am not rich by any means but I must admit that Im doing a good job in managing my own portfolio. My question to this discussion is divided in three. Do you believe investing is an important part of your future retirement? Where would/are investing in? What is your goal in investing?

Yes! I have an investment with AXA, its a life insurance + investment. I wanna try investing in Retail Treasury Bonds ( RTB) its government bonds and security, so it's safe.

life insurance investing is also a good idea. I personally dont like investing with the government as the returns are very minimal. however they are a bit more secure

@beatrizguiselle yup minimal but sure. I haven't tried the stock market, Im scared to take risks, though a lot of my officemates are doing it

Stock Market is always a good investment. By learning new knowledge is good too. Crypto is good too.

On my personal opinion crypto is too volatile, I rather invest in well known and established companies who are also backed by the government.

@beatrizguiselle when you say "i rather invest in well known and established companies who are also backed by the government." could you give some example?

I only invest in government funds cause the yearly dividends are guaranteed. I don't have to worry about checking it every time. I don't really have any goals. I just follow what others do.

thats not a bad investing idea. Having a back up plan is always good.

I am a self taught. I have made mistakes and lost money, I have also learned from those mistakes and corrected them. watching the market fluctuation and reading the news on a daily basis has improved my investment moves. I can advise on where to start, but it must be understood that all investment have a risk. this is why it is very important to know when to enter and exit the market.

@beatrizguiselle it is very important to know when to enter and exit the market Out of curiosity, isn't the market based on each individual's country's market? Sorry but I don't know much about share markets.
