Seven Logical Tips to Help You Save Money When Investing

Investments can help to ensure your financial security and your financial independence. However, there is more to it than just putting money into an account. Listed below are seven tips to help you save money when investing, and to make sure you don’t make a bad investment that costs you and your family money.

Tip 1: You don’t need a full time share broker: You are more interested in your money than anyone else. Don’t pay monthly fees to anyone. Instead research things yourself, or obtain advice from an independent financial advisor. The internet now offers some great sites and programmes for playing the share market.

Tip 2: Don’t get too greedy when investing: Warren Buffett is famous for saying “I have made a fortune from buying late and selling early”. The strategy should be to make smaller and safer profits consistently. It’s tempting to hang in there and extract the maximum profit, but slow and surely will make you get better returns in the long run.

Tip 3: Invest consistently: If you put a consistent amount into the market each month, the small ups and down shouldn’t bother you.

Tip 4: Invest wisely: Look at what is going on around you, not just what charts or brokers are saying. For example, if gold is high, look at mining companies that will make more money off gold being high.

Tip 5: Invest in Bonds: Bond owners don’t have to pay any federal tax…just make sure that the Bond you invest in looks like a good investment to begin with. Like don’t invest in Greek bonds right now.

Tip 6: Share Trading: There are hundreds of sites on the Internet that offer cheap, or in some cases free, trades. Have a look around and see if you can find one that suits your needs. We generally, use ones that are related directly to major banking institutions.

Tip 7: Invest in indexed funds: These are a relatively cheap and safe way to invest. And a good starting point if you are looking for consistent returns.
