How to Invest in Stocks: Strategies for Beginning and Advanced Investors

Joel Anderson |

How to invest? It’s a question so broad there couldn’t possibly be a single answer to it (and beware of anyone who would tell you otherwise). The reality is that there’s a number of different approaches, each of which could bring success or failure depending on when and how they’re applied.

However, anyone interested in becoming a self-directed investor should take a look at Equities.com’s resources on investing basics. We outline a number of different theories and approaches that were compiled by legendary investors, mathematicians, and financial professionals over the course of the last century.

None represent a silver bullet, but knowing and understanding these strategies can help anyone mold their own system for investing that best suits their portfolio, its needs, and its limitations.
