Aggressive style is suitable for those who put profit higher than potential risk. You should think about the timing of the return on investment. For the long term, the acquisition of real estate is considered the most profitable. If you want to make a profit in a couple of years, you can consider stocks and bonds.
About starting capital.
Immediately starting with an investment of several million is not necessary and not necessary. 5 thousand rubles are enough to buy a mutual fund, and one thousand rubles is enough to buy a share.
A large starting capital for investing is not a prerequisite. However, the larger the investment amount, the higher the return. It is better to start with 50-100 thousand. This amount is enough to deal with the market fundamentals and get a good profit. At the start, you do not need to immediately invest all the money.

Rules for a successful investor.
There is no magic algorithm by which you can earn income without the risk of losing money. Mistakes are made even by experienced traders, while the amount of loss can be very large.
However, there are 5 basic rules that will improve the likelihood of success with an investment.
1. Diversification of risks. You should not use only one tool, since the risks in this case will be very large. Using multiple tools will minimize risks.
If there are several assets in the portfolio, the fall in the value of one of them will not be so critical. Diversification should be carried out correctly. For example, investing in bonds and shares of one company will lead to a decrease in your income and will not allow you to satisfy their profitability. Pick industries that are not related to each other.
2. Setting clear goals. It is not worth making contributions for some kind of income. You should initially determine the amount of profit and attach it to a certain period. In this case, it is worth assessing whether it is possible to achieve the goal.
Given the understanding and purpose of the aspiration, steps should be taken to achieve the goal. Actual results should be compared with the planned ones. If the data diverges, adjustments should be made. This will provide an opportunity to see the current situation.
3. Search for like-minded people. Many still believe that investing is the activity of one person. However, when dealing with the same investors, you can gain experience and avoid problems. Meeting with colleagues is not necessary in person, today there are many thematic groups and forums that contain useful information.
Only the consumption of knowledge in this case is not necessary. If you can help someone and know the answer to a question, share your knowledge. However, disclosing all the secrets is still not worth it.
4. Do not stop if you fail.
Inevitably, the appearance of transactions that will be unprofitable for you. However, their correct analysis will avoid further errors and give you an indispensable experience.
Even if you have lost money, you should not stop investing. It is necessary to draw the right conclusions and move on.
5. Continuous training.
The best investment is investing in one’s own knowledge. You should constantly expand your capabilities and learn something new. With the right approach, you will quickly return the money spent.
Do not forget that many trainings are created by people who do not have the appropriate qualifications and experience, therefore the information may be incorrect and lead to errors. An analysis should be made of all information received.
The main mistakes of investors.
Among the newcomers to investing, 4 main mistakes can be distinguished, which are rather difficult to avoid, but with the right approach, it is possible. The selection of these errors is made from our own experience, so it has a certain value.
Lack of start-up capital. To get the necessary experience you will need from 50 thousand rubles. It should be immediately understood that it will not be possible to earn a million from these investments. Finding the right tool requires higher capital. At this point, it is necessary to ensure its availability. Otherwise, the market situation may change and your knowledge will lose relevance.
The pursuit of quick income. The faster the tool offers income, the higher the risk of loss of funds. It is worth remembering that these properties are proportional. Do not strive for quick money. It is better to prepare a strategy that can provide a small but regular income in the long run.
Lack of sufficient knowledge. If you do not fully understand how the tool works, then investing in it is not worth it. Otherwise, in critical situations, you will not be able to make the right decision. In most cases, such investments will be unprofitable. Do not rush, and better deal with a new way to generate income. Only with a full understanding of the degree of income can one invest money.
Use of credit funds for investment.
If you want to start earning money on investments, then you should use only available funds. In case of loss or critical situations, you can avoid the loss of financial stability. In this situation, you will be left without income and still become a hostage to debt obligations.
