Stock Market

The investment industry actively promotes the mantra, ‘In the long term shares always go up’.

At Markets & Money, we take that with a few grains of salt. The truth is, your returns in the stock market depend on many factors. Such as your definition of long term. Or which of the world’s stock markets you’ve invested into. And importantly, your returns depend on your stock selection and timing.

Whether the shares are a good or bad investment depends on when and what market you invest in. By this we do not mean trying to pick the top or the bottom of the market to be all in or all out.

The stock market can be an excellent investment provided you avoid the investment industry’s group think and inherent self-interest. Our aim in Markets & Money is to help you learn to do this for yourself.
