Learn about shares and save for your retirement, or new house, or holiday.

Turning your money into shares and grow a nice nest egg. In this economy we are all searching for smart investments for our hard earned money. Investment in the stock market can be an instrument that can play a tune, that your savings account can dance in the right direction to. Many have let the myths, media and seemingly volatile state of the market cloud the profitable opportunity involved with smart investment in the stock market. I am sure that all of our savings account can stand to see increase and this article can educate you on how to acquire shares, that are a smart, profitable and safe investments.

Let us go in to a step by step process of growing your money with investment in the stock market.

1. Determine how much you are willing to invest.

You have to keep in mind that  in order for your money to grow, it has to be invested long-term in the stock market. Once you have figured how much money you are able to invest then you are ready to choose a stock broker. If you think you can not afford to invest, then you can not afford not to. Unless you wish to live a whole life of poverty. See where you can be more thrifty and put away the difference in shares.

2. Choose a comparable share broker.

There are so many online stock brokers to choose from and this is honestly to your advantage, because all of them are competing for your business. A stock broker that I would recommend for what you are trying to accomplish is share builder, because though they do have a higher trading price, their current promotions can make it worth the investment. Make sure that regardless of what stock broker that you go with that your goal coincide with what the broker has to offer you. Be sure to do your research before you commit to it because this decision can make a major difference in how much you profit from your shares. 

3. Choose a company that you believe will grow over the next 3-5 years.

Smart investors (Even you a beginner can be one) , take the time to research a company thoroughly before purchasing their shares. With the internet constantly pouring out vast amounts of info you can not believe everything you hear, you just have to do your homework. If you desire your shares to turn your savings account into a nice nest egg, then you have to do the ground work. Making sure that the stock broker that you choose has a comprehensive share analysis platform can be very beneficial to you.

4. Invest your savings into the shares of the company you choose

This step can be the most anxious because there are so many different thoughts running through your mind but if you have done your homework, there is nothing to be worried about. It is all mental here and you just have to trust that the invest you are about to make is a smart one. No one has ever profited where they did not invest so put your money to work for you and stop working about it.
Tip: As a beginner understand that mutual funds are safer investments because they are balanced through out many different sectors of the stock market.

Good luck with your new investments and just watch your retirement fund build up.

I would add, if you're not ready to invest your savings, start small with maybe $1000 and just play around with low priced stocks and get a feel for trading. Experience is the best teacher.

I've always been intimidated with trading and shares and stocks, I don't know what I'm even talking about. But I can tell you that this winter I'm going to take an adult education class to learn the basics. It's been on my mind for a couple of years and finally going to sit down to do it.
Thanks for the article.

Kris, I like your idea of small, can I come live with you if you are that rich? I will do laundry he he.

HomeBaseIncome, yes I understand that feeling fully, but us moms are going to have to be even savvier with our budget, to survive.

Ha! I see your point, however, I will mention I am not investing at this point because I don't have the $1,000 either :)
