What is Investing?

Investing is when a person uses their money to make more money. Investors allocate money to an investment with the anticipation or expectation of making a profit. The goal of an investor is to make money, but it's possible to lose money, too.

One of the most popular assets to invest in is stocks. Investors usually make money by buying low and selling high. For example, if an investor buys a stock for $100, and later sells it for $110, then they made $10 profit.

Investing is for the Long-Term

Most investors are long-term investors, in which they will hold their position or stocks for more than one year. Investing is a mostly passive activity; meaning, once an investor buys some stocks, they sit on the position for the long-term and passively manage the position as needed.

Historically, investing has been used to generate long-term wealth and help people reach their financial goals. Granted, it is possible for investors to lose money or even their entire investment.

It is important to understand your risk, invest within your risk tolerance, and don't risk more money than you can afford to lose.
