visual teaching tool for investing?
« on: August 13, 2014, 02:24:22 AM »
I get confused (and have significant learning disabilities, etc).
I have been struggling to understand investment things for almost one year -little luck.
My brain keeps trying to translate words into pictures, looking for images of what "goes into" what.
i.e. Does an ETF go inside an RDSP? Or does an RDSP go inside an ETF? Which is the container, and which is the food? And so on.

So, is there a visual teaching aid for understanding investing?
Not financial/market charts.
Rather, a visual "investing for dummies".
Something cartoonish, maybe animated...
like this: http://visual.ly/beginners-guide-investing (except that I got lost at Step 3)
or the investing equivalent of this:

A book heavy on visual analogies, or else something very "Dick and Jane", might also do the trick.

Thanks!!
