Getting Your Feet Wet - Start Investing

By Scarlett Embs

If you're anxious to get your investments started, you can start right away without having a lot of knowledge concerning the stock market. Start by being a conservative investor with a low risk tolerance. This can offer you a approach to making your cash grow whereas you will learn a lot of about investing.

Begin with an interest bearing savings account. You may already have one. If you don't, you should. A savings account will be opened at your usual bank where you have your checking account - or at any different bank. A savings account may pay two - four% on the money that you've got in the account.

It's not a large sum of money - unless you have 1,000,000 dollars in that account - however it is a start, and it is money creating money.

Next, invest in money market funds. This will typically be done through your bank. These funds have higher interest payouts than typical savings accounts, however they work much the same way. These are short term investments, thus your money won't be occupied for a protracted period of time - but again, it is cash creating money.

Certificates of Deposit also are sound investments with no risk. The interest rates on CD's are sometimes much higher than those of savings accounts or Cash Market Funds.

You'll select the length of your investment, and interest is paid frequently until the CD reaches maturity. CD's will be purchased at your bank, and your bank can insure them against loss. When the CD reaches maturity, you receive your original investment, and the interest that the CD has earned.

If you're just beginning, one or all of these three types of investments is the best starting point. Once more, this will enable your money to start out creating cash for you while you learn a lot about investing in other places. - 23208
