Investing Money While In College

By: rigrim
Investing Money can be very hard to do, if you are not equipped with the right information, and the right tools. There are many ways that you can invest your money! Some of those that may be simple to do is simply putting your money into the savings account and watching it grow. Most people already have savings accounts that earn about a 1-3% interest rate. You can invest into real estate but chances are that you don't have enough capital because you are a college student. Many students work part time while they are in college. If you are smart then you would go to school during the day, work at night, and invest your money into a place where that money will build into a nice amount of income all on its own.

So how can you find a good place to invest this money? Well you can invest your money into a business, real estate, stocks, bonds, commodities, options, network marketing companies, and many more. I found that while I was in college I was bombarded with many ways to invest my money by building a business. While this vehicle to make money is very easy to do, most students just don't have the time that it takes to make a business successful. So I found that a great way to investing money while in college is with the foreign exchange.

Well what is the forex, and how can I get started? Well the forex is simply buying one countries currency vs. another countries currency simultaneously. Why the forex for college students? Because it is very low start up costs to get involved with, but it has an unlimited potential to increase your cash flow. You can start an account with as low as $250. Now for most college students, this is simply 2 weeks working
at their part time job. With the forex you can earn an extra $5 to $50 a day when you first get started! If you don't understand the forex yet, then you don't want to miss out on this great opportunity. The forex market is a 1.5 trillion dollar industry every day! This is the largest market in the world! All you have to do is learn what you need to know as far as the basics, and find just one strategy that will be profitable for whichever type of trader you are.

The forex is traded in currency pairs such as GBP/USD. This is the British Pound vs. the United States Dollar. The great thing with forex is that you can profit from a currency, whether it is going up or down. The only thing is that you need to be going the right direction. If you think a currency will head upwards, then you would buy the currency pair. If you think the currency pair would go down, then you would sell the currency pair. It is just that simple!

So how can I make money from the forex, well I can't possibly put it all in this article, but what I can tell you is that by the use of leverage you can make a lot of money. Leverage means using a small portion of your money to control a larger amount of money. Even if your leverage is only 2:1 or 200:1! What does this mean; well if you use $100 with 2:1 leverage you can control $200. With the forex you can use $100 to control $20,000. Now which one do you think is better, to control $200 or $20,000. It doesn't take a genius to figure this out! Well now that you know a little bit about the forex and the power of leverage, you can start investing money while in college.
