Investing your money is an excellent way to grow your wealth. Especially when you do so wisely. But getting started can be daunting and novices are likely to make costly mistakes. Here are some tips on the stock market to help you avoid these mistakes.

1. Understand the basics of investing.

The stock market is where securities are traded, including stocks, corporate or government bonds, and exchange-traded funds. Essentially, it’s an auction where a publicly traded company sells shares to investors in exchange for capital. Investors purchase and sell shares when they think the value of the company will go up or down. The price of a stock is determined by a variety of factors which include the state of the economy, environmental disasters or war, and many more.

2. Stick to long-term investment goals.

Most financial experts recommend that you stay invested in the market for a long time at least five years or more. This allows you to build your investment portfolio and lets you weather the inevitable losses that can result from markets that are volatile. Many new investors are swayed by the promise of quick gains, or lose patience during inevitable market declines and decide to sell their shares too quickly.

3. Diversify your portfolio.

Diversifying your portfolio can reduce its risk. This includes diversifying your portfolio according to particular asset class, industry and geographic region. Avoid investing too much money in a single business. This is known as “concentration risk” and can cause serious harm if the company faces issues, like regulatory issues or public relations problems.
