It is true that the stock market gives really high returns and beats inflation. But it is important to understand that high returns come with high risks. Recommendations may lure investors, but they have to ensure that they have a few things in place before they start investing in the stock market.
Building an emergency fund, repaying high interest debts and taking health insurance should be prioritized apart from any other important goals that an investor might have. It is important to understand at least the basics of the stock market before investing. In fact, this will help to understand recommendations in a better manner.
