Paul Samuelson once said, “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.”
What Paul Samuelson means is that time is an important factor in investments.
The more money you invest for a longer period of time, the higher your return.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to understand how I can start investing in the stock market or shares.
I started reading books on shares and share trading in high school but it just seemed so expensive to start investing.
And when I did try to invest on my own, I was always too impatient and withdrew the money after a year so I ended up losing money.
So how can you start investing in shares?
How do your emotions impact your investment behaviour?
