How to Have More Fun Investing

Jan 4, 2008
Investing in the stock market can be both fun and exciting. If approached with the right attitude you can create a new hobby that will serve to occupy your time in a very useful and profitable way for years to come. Some people are scare of the stock market but they simply dont know what they are missing.

Of course investing is more fun when you are making money but if done correctly then you are always making money in one or more of your investments. Im talking diversification here both in different stocks and different industries within the stock market. Its no fun being fully invested in one stock and then the bottom falling out. Sounds funny but people do it all the time because they trust one stock so much. And why would they think any different since that favorite stock has been doing so well for so long right? Not a fun way to invest, you must diversify.

You must stick to the fundamentals if you want to have more fun in the stock market. Even if you have chosen to try out penny stocks you must follow the basic ideas of profitable investment style.

You know what also makes investing more fun, online investing. You may have already been doing this but this is for those people who refuse to break away from their beloved brokers. Online trading accounts make you feel in control and it is definitely fun to watch those numbers in near real time. Heck, some people even have several online trading accounts with different companies since it is free to open. The charge only comes when you place a trade and that is usually pretty low.

Investing in penny stocks is one of the most exciting and adrenalin rush investments out there. If you choose these give these a try then study up first. They can be risky but the potential returns make it worth it if you can space in your portfolio for them. Never invest your whole portfolio in them. In fact I would say this at the top of the fun list when it comes to investing.

Investing in your favorite company or a company you actually work for can be exciting and fun since you will, for obvious reasons, be more interested in the daily business operation of that company. Its almost like following your favorite football team. Anytime any good news comes about your favorite company you will cheer right along with them and your pockets will be happy too.

There are many ways to have fun trading. Just do what works for you and keeps you interested while following time tested fundamentals. Happy investing.
