whatdrought Posted March 27, 2021 Share Posted March 27, 2021 So, as background- I’m in my mid-20’s, and was raised in a family that never had the resources nor desire to invest or plan for the future. That being said, I’m now getting to a point where I want to begin seeing how I can (or cannot) use the markets to set up my family for success. I have the basic retirement package from work, but I find myself in a good place to play around a bit since the gov. keeps dumping money in my lap and I don’t want to go with a basic savings account if I can find something more beneficial. All that to say, I am looking for resources to help me gain a fundamental understanding on how and why the markets work, what the moving parts are, and how we “average joes” can use the markets. Essentially I need a baseline of knowledge that can help point me in the direction of what to research more before I dive in. Make sense? Books, podcasts, YouTube channels, etc. that you have found helpful at giving you an overview of all things finance- anything you got!
