Reading resources for the Basics and Jargon?
« on: April 05, 2017, 12:17:36 PM »
Title sort of says it all, I was sure if this was the right place to post it. Im specifically interested in learning about stocks and that market right now. I dont really know anything about it but I know it is my responsibility to my future to learn.
Im reading a lot online but most of what Ive gound is leading in circles and not that helpful.
Am I researching wrong, because my results say yes.
Though.. I did end up here...

What kind of basics and what jargon?

Like do you need a definition for stocks? That level I'd just google stuff and try to understand it. Or look for a 101 type explanation online.

The basics of investing? I'd read jlcollinsnh stock series.

I found that starting out Investopedia does a good job of explaining the basic terms and jargon that everyone uses.

Just need to ignore all the advice they try to peddle while reading definitions.

Bogleheads is a great learning site for investors. It focuses on low-cost investing so is a good match for MrMM.

Ill take these suggestions into my studying schedule and make time to check them out, thank you.

As far as what jargon in particular.
Lets just pretend I know absolutely zilch.
I know I know some things, but I feel like I still dont know what I know if that makes sense.
