I started investing in 2015 with the influence of HWZ stock and indices forummer regarding investing in shares. I started small and at one time I invest around 25k in singapore shares and manage to earn some profit in just a few months. But after going through some loss due to some shares (M1 and CCT), i sold all and rethink my portfolio. Although I still earn some profit in overall result but it make me think about investing in shares that I am confident in (blue chips).
Many people says that young people should invest mid risk shares so that they can earn more profits but also be mindful that the higher the risk, the higher chance of losing money.
