Types Of Investments To Be Aware Of

The original version of this was due to post this morning but when I looked, it had disappeared.

    1. Stocks (Equities)

    Stocks are the thing that go up the most, most of the time.

    2. Fixed Income (Bonds)

    Fixed income can range from very simple and safe to very complex and risky. It's important to know which is which.

    3. Gold

    Usually a good diversifier for stocks but going heavy into gold out of some sort of doomsday fear, hasn't worked very often.

    4. Other commodities

    Energy, industrial metals, agriculture and other precious metals.

    5. Alternative strategies

    These are for diversifying against equity holdings. They can be very complex, many don't do what they purport to do, it takes a fair bit of study to understand these.

    6. Foreign currency

    It's difficult to make a lot of money here without leverage.

    7. Cryptocurrency

    This is probably worth learning about even if you never plan on speculating here. And I would think of it as speculation.

    8. Cash instruments

    Things like money markets and certificates of deposits.
