Buying low, selling high, building a nest egg, and everything to build a prosperous financial life.

Whether you are a novice or budding expert, there is much to consider and know when investing: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, retirement planning, and tax strategies, just for starters. It can all be difficult and confusing. The Handy Investing Answer Book explains, in plain English, the basics of investing, and it explores a variety of investments and their differences, avoiding poor returns and unnecessary risk, understanding financial markets—and how to prevent banks, mutual fund managers, and financial advisers from getting rich at your expense. It offers simple investment strategies; investigates common pitfalls; examines concepts of compounding, portfolios, and diversification; traces the history of investing; and offers much more to help everyone make wise decisions about their financial future.

More than 1,400 common questions are given easy-to-understand answers, including: Why is dollar cost averaging a beneficial strategy for investing? What is a home equity loan? What are some of the steps to establishing the right goals for investing? What is diversification? What types of risks could we see if we own individual stocks? When did mutual funds start? and What is laddering?
