Top Free Websites to Learn Basics of Financial Investments. Best sites and courses to learn Stock Trading and finance
American Association of Individual Investors (AAII)
I have a strong interest to learn how to invest my money. Initially I thought of going to some courses on finance. When I checked the tuition fees, I couldn't afford it. Finance books in Amazon are also expensive. Hence, I decided to research the internet where I can get free website resources to learn the basics of financial investing and trading stocks. Here are the free websites for studying that I found:
AAII is a nonprofit organization that provides individual investors with the education and tools they need to make money. From stock investing to financial planning and retirement funding, AAII covers all your needs.
One interesting thing that I found in this website are the asset allocation models that teach how to allocate assets as we get older (as our risk-tolerance level changes). There are lots of relevant informations and surveys. For instance, Sentiment Survey measures the percentage of individual investors who are bullish, bearish, and neutral on the stock market in short run. It also has several basic articles on financial investing, financial planning, stock screens and also an interesting virtual classroom. Check the website yourself and let me know which of these resources you liked the most.
Investing for Dummies
Financial Web (FW)
This is an independent resource for personal finance information. There are thousands of articles written to help individuals, families and small businesses to manage their money better.
Financial Web covers a broad range of topics like: Mortgage, Loans, Banking and Credit, Investing, Retirement, Insurance, Taxes, Financial Planning and Real Estate. Whether you're buying your first home, rebuilding your credit, formulating an investment strategy, or simply opening a checking account, you will get all the information you need from this website.
Yahoo Directory is a resource pool on several topics of finance and banking. However, Yahoo does not publish own articles but it gives you very interesting links to websites on a particular topic. For instance, if you go to the title 'Real Estate', you have an option to choose from several other sub categories like 'Real Estate investment opportunities' or 'Real Estate Agencies'. If you choose 'Real Estate investment opportunities', you will get links to some interesting websites that cover this topic eg. "how-to" resource for anyone who wants to make money in real estate. Visit the yahoo directory and check yourself.
