Expose yourself to not only what you know now, but to the entire world!
With the single click of a button, you are now connected to the entire globe! You now have full, complete map awareness of what is going on. This is simply what all the other ETFs look like. Yes, I've emphasized the importance and ease of use with Vanguard but there are others competing on the market as well. Long story short, you can see what's doing good and what to stay away from. Is Vanguard the best out there with the greatest gains ever! Of course not, but it comes close with low fees and good returns. The good news is you can actually see who's doing the best out there! No, you're not going to be overwhelmed with boring information and hard math problems. Finviz makes it very easy to follow with it's color coordinated charts. No more complicated pieces of garbage.
Long story short, you only have one tool under your belt that actually works: Buy low, sell high. What the hell does that mean! What you need is foresight. You need to have the guts to invest what the market will be 5 years down the road. This is not a get rich quick scheme. By reading and carefully analyzing what will be the next Apple, you have to select the right company and put your pennies into it. For most of us, we have absolutely no idea and obviously need help from gurus. You might miss a lot of the winners, but don't miss all of them. This is why ETFs and mutual funds are so important, because they track a laundry list of different assets. This leads us to international stocks! Not only international stocks have been doing quite well lately; but they're pretty much half the price of American stocks. Yes, people are seeing value in investing in other countries because it's much cheaper than USA. Are we not off shoring our jobs to other countries? People like cheap! Yes, they kill each other and are at each other throats all the time in the name of being cheap and stingy! To capitalize on this global activity all you have to do is invest in international ETFs and mutual funds. VEA, VWO, and VGK are all great places to start. You'll have a wide range of exposure of Asia, Europe, and even Canada at unbeatable low prices. According to the data, things have definitely been growing and building up momentum! Yes, buying on momentum and when things are going up is an actual strategy some of the pros use.
This is not a get rich quick scheme, but at least now you have a greater awareness of what is going on in the world and a bigger pool of diversification for investments. I feel excited! I love exploring new things! You never want to be bogged down by the same, boring old stuff. The only thing that ever remains constant in the universe is change. Well, tomorrow is the start of another one of my work weeks! I know I will have to push and keep pushing until the weekend. I know business is not easy. I know what it is like to sweat. I know what it is like to work in the rain. I know what it is like to work in the snow. I know what it is like to work in the heat. I also know what it is like to be fat and lazy. Good luck everyone!
Thank you for reading. I hope you come back soon!
