How do I pick up 101 of finance, stocks and investments.
I’m in IT, SWE - and I’m good at that. I feel finance is a whole new world and should be left to experts. If I want to get in to finance I will go all the way down, but I really don’t have time and passion for it, at least for now. And financial services aren’t cheap either. So I’m left out with default 401k, rsu and stocks. I barely do any other investments in stocks, bonds and commodities because I’m scared due to lack of knowledge and most importantly lack of information or trust worthy resource.
When I see people around me with same backgrounds talk about stocks and market make me wonder, from where they are getting all this - which one to buy and sell, market will go up and down, Invest in technology vs pharmaceutical vs airlines.
Do anyone feel this way, or am I the only one? What do I need to do to catch up so I can also make some extra bucks and invest with some logic behind it.
