The Top Three Markets to Focus Your Investing Efforts On

21-12-2015 | Anne Seymour |

For many, investing proves to be the ideal means of providing a supplementary income. Extra hours, promotions at work, or second jobs are often unfeasible, and this means that you have to search elsewhere for solutions to increase your earnings.

Your requirements are simple: flexibility, accessibility, and the opportunity to turn a profit. Investing can tick every box, but if you’ve made the decision to pursue it, you need to consider the finer details, and one of these is which sort of asset you would like to trade.

If you’re in need of some input, then here are three that we’d recommend to get you started …

#1: Currencies

There are an increasing range of options to choose from, but forex is inarguably one of the best choices for those working around other commitments, as well as those with little experience of how the investment markets work. Offering a wide variety of currency pairings to pick from, most professional companies will provide a wealth of information for their traders to use, as well as multiple different platforms and packages. With expert support and advice also available for those who feel that they need them, it’s an option that can be perfectly tailored to suit you and your trading ambitions.

#2: Precious Metals

Another possibility that you might like to consider is precious metals, and these are particularly well suited to those who are risk averse. Traditionally considered to be safe haven assets, gold, silver, platinum, and their counterparts hold their value well, even in times of uncertainty. Depreciation is rare (and usually mild), and demand for these materials seldom wanes.

In addition, many precious metals now have a secondary purpose as raw materials in industry, which is driving prices up even further. Thus, if you’re looking for an asset that you can rely on, then precious metals deserve a place in your portfolio.

#3: Shares

Thirdly and finally, consider how shares could suit your purposes. As one of the largest investment markets in existence, they offer a wide variety of choices for those with capital to burn, and this means that you can create a portfolio that’s perfectly tailored to your needs, goals, risk threshold, and personality.

What’s more, many people appreciate their familiarity with the assets being marketed, and believe that their real world experience of the stocks that they’re investing in benefits them when it comes to placing their trades.

If you’re considering investing yourself, could one of these assets be the ideal choice for you?

    This is a great piece. Thanks for sharing it. It’s true that more and more people are looking outside of their nine to five jobs for a way to get more streams of income and investing in shares and precious metals is a great place to start. I personally am in the process of learning as much as I can about that before I jump in on it.

    Precious metals sounds like an intriguing option. I have always wondered if things like that were worth looking at for investments, and when I really think back I have heard really good and really bad and from all angles, so I am still not sure, but this is useful, so thanks.
