Investing Masterclass: Stock Markets and Index Funds - Learn to Invest! S&P 500 | Diversification

via Skillshare


It's March/April 2020 and we're going through a global recession. Watch a course about the recession here.

We will invest $25 together into a mix of stocks and bonds. You can invest as little as $10 into this diversified portfolio that includes over 500 companies' stocks and 500 companies' bonds. How amazing is that?

You should only invest what you can lose. Never invest money you will need. The stock market is volatile and unpredictable. 

This course provides all the information you need to buy a diversified portfolio in the real world. 

We will learn the investing vernacular and prep you to buy a diversified portfolio. 

We will finally learn how to buy a stock or index fund using Betterment. 

This is for students who are beginners in the stock market and need a strong foundation.
