4. Choose your order type

There are two order types that successful investors rely on all the time: market orders and limit orders.

MARKET ORDERS:  You’re indicating that you’ll buy or sell the stock at the best available current market price.

LIMIT ORDERS: A limit order gives you more control over the price at which your trade is done.

How to Invest Money

 Kids with  Masks

1. Give your money a goal

  • Long-term goals: The universal goal is often retirement, but you may have others as well: Do you want a down payment on a house or college tuition? To purchase your dream vacation home or go on an anniversary trip in 10 years?

 

  • Short-term goals: This is next year's vacation, a house you want to buy next year, an emergency fund or your Christmas piggy bank.
