Do you want to make your own investment decisions or should you let a professional manage your IRA and bank accounts? This course will help you decide. Using the internet, you will evaluate the variety of products available including stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds, foreign currency, gold and even futures in corn, soybeans or orange juice. You will also discover what makes the stock market tick and what high frequency trading and volatility mean. Perhaps most importantly, you will learn the psychology of investing and risk management and ultimately when to buy and when to sell.
Importantly, this is not just a class for people with a “trust fund.” Pretty much anyone who works for a living should take advantage of opening an IRA – even with as little as $500. We want this class to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to build that account into a significant amount for the future -- while concentrating on minimizing risk.
