Get Rich Slowly is a personal finance site, not an investment site, but we'll cover useful information on investing from time-to-time. This is one of them. The Investopedia has an enormous archive of articles on investing basics.
Each week Investopedia focuses on a particular topic that will help you learn the fundamentals of investing. From stocks to bonds to asset allocation strategies, everything you read about is explained from the perspective of a new investor so you don't get bogged down with concepts and jargon you don't understand.
Sample articles include:
- Investing With a Purpose — Setting goals is the first step in determining which investment vehicles are right for you.
- Ten Books Every Investor Should Read — Want advice from some of the most successful investors of all time? Check out this reading list.
- The Power of Dividend Growth — Dividends may not seem exciting, but they can certainly be lucrative. Learn more here!
- Advantages of Mutual Funds (also: Disadvantages of Mutual Funds)
There are many articles here, and some go beyond the basics, but you're sure to find some useful topics among those available.
