Should you invest in Funds, ETFs, or Individual Stocks? There really isn't a short answer to this question. Because it depends on your objective as well as your personality. Investing has a lot to do with psychological needs in addition to financial needs. So a good investor must know themselves well, or be willing to learn about their strengths as well as vulnerabilities. Here are THREE rules to help you check in with your inner investor:
#1. Invest according to how much time and effort you can dedicate to research;
#2. Know your own emotional limits and invest accordingly;
#3. Only invest money you will not need immediately.

TQQQ is a thrilling leveraged ETF to invest in. Especially during market crashes, it rides like a roller coaster! If you had invested just before the Dot Com Bubble burst, you could still be losing 95%+ of your money!

In this second video of my Leveraged ETF series, I share with you the actual performance numbers of TQQQ (QQQ3) over up to 20 years following the last three market crashes, in comparison to NASDAQ 100, S&P 500, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, as well as some stellar performance funds! So that you can use this information to help decide whether a highly volatile investment like TQQQ is worth the risk, when there are other options on the market. I hope you enjoy!
You probably have heard of many theories about the pros and cons of Dollar Cost Averaging vs Lump Sum investing strategies. Could Dollar Cost Averaging really help you learn how to manage volatility risk with leveraged ETFs like TQQQ? Personally, I really like the fact that Dollar Cost Averaging takes the guesswork out of the equation, which means that you could win regardless of whether the market is up or down. With a highly volatile investment such as TQQQ, it might be a good idea. But how do the numbers look in reality? In this video, I will walk you through the performance numbers of TQQQ in two scenarios, i.e. you investing £1000 into TQQQ per month for 2 years BEFORE the Dot Com Crash, and you doing the same for 2 years AFTER the Dot Com Crash. Teaser: there is a HUGE difference in terms of returns!
