    Hi all,

    I'm Justin! I am 19 and in the 2nd year of my working life, completing a traineeship in IT Networking. I have always been interested in the idea of investing so I thought 'why not start now?'

    I don't have any real experience or anything, so any tips on where I can start with research or anything would be much appreciated. :)

    Cheers,
    Justin

    Hi Justin

    Research here, and on google, 'portfolio construction','asset allocation','ETF' and 'index fund'.




    Johny. :)

    G'day Justin,

    In addition to all of the other suggestions, I'd recommend reading a bunch of Buffet's letters. Easy to read and a great insight into long term investing. If you're looking for day-trading, look elsewhere!
