This Is Financial Literacy Month
Everyone should be investing, and anyone can. Financial literacy means being able to make sense of money yourself and chart a path toward financial freedom. It doesn’t have to be about Rolex’s and private jets, but it sure can be!
April is National Financial Literacy Month in America! However, we should all be marking this one no matter where we live. This coronavirus lockdown has forced millions out of a job. It’s emptied a great many penny banks and caused unprecedented volatility in markets. A month to master financial literacy could not have arrived at a more prime time.
If you can tell your exchange-traded funds from your small-caps, force some new habits, and learn the ropes of this trade now, then you can protect yourself and the people around you from rogue waves like coronavirus.
