VIDEO: How is Investing Like Riding a Bike?

Joel Anderson  |

Investools, an arm of TD Armitrade, put together this simple video explaining the basics of investing in stocks, including what stocks are, why they're riskier than bonds, and why we all invest in them anyway. The basic metaphor, that investing is like riding a bike, dangerous and intimidating at first but easier with knowledge and practice, is a relatively solid one. Except that old saying "it's just like riding a bike" makes one wonder what Benjamin Graham, were he alive today, would do with today's world of high-frequency traders and stratospheric valuations for social media companies. Would it be just like riding a bike?
