Welcome to Invest Safely
This site is a collection of my thoughts on the process called "investing", or how we all hope to fund our retirement years.
The content is written by me, but greatly influenced by historical figures, professional investors, hedge fund managers, media personalities, entrepreneurial geniuses, my closest friends, and YOU!.
It was designed for the individual investor, but really applies to anyone interested in making money. And that is where I focus my approach; making money.
The origin of the site is actually the trading journal I started in 2000.
Side note: Beginning to invest during a bear market will teach you many good lessons, and quickly point out bad habits. It also means you're going to lose money, which can be a bit discouraging.
As I continued to study the markets, I realized a few things:
- There is no substitute for personal experience.
- There is no "right" way to invest, or single method that's always profitable.
- We, as individual investors, are just along for the ride.
After some gentle encouragement, Invest-Safely.com became my way to share my interest in investing and helping people to see how to craft their own process. For more of my background, visit my bio page (J.Wenger)
The blog contains general thoughts, current events, and other various thoughts of the day. Each Saturday, I post articles of interest related to personal finance, money management, income and growth investing, as well as odds and ends that caught my eye during the week. Each Sunday, I post some market commentary for the new week, based on the price and volume action of the major exchanges during the previous week.
The main site contains all of the evergreen content related to the process of safe investing. The left hand column breaks out the 5 steps in an attempt to help you walk through the process;
- Stabilizing your personal finances
- Planning your trades
- Trading your money for assets (shares of stock, etc.)
- Monitoring the value of your assets and cashflows
- Adjusting your positions and portfolios
