How did you take the leap?
As of the topic, how did you finally purchase your first financial instruments (particularly stocks). Did you started off by reading books and then felt you're confident enough or did you get your hands dirty by just putting in a small amount of money to test the real world? Were you interested in a particular company/industry that made you decide to put some money in the world of stock market?

Curious on how everyone started their journey  Big Grin

It is all about alternatives. If putting money in the bank at 1% doesnt interest you, you start looking at stocks or properties for higher returns. But be prepared for the price fluctuations in stocks. YOu need to be educated in this area. Many good books around. Can start with the intelligent investor by the famous Benjamin Graham

Basically, the insignificant interest rate persuaded you to get started. Fair enough. Did you purchase your first stocks online yourself or through a stock broker?
