Surprising Myself

I would not have predicted it but I’ve really gotten more interested in finance and investing, which is not something I was attracted to for the first 30+ years of my life. I’ve always been a news junkie but never really connected that in a way that would be a benefit to a potential trade or investment. I’ve made that connection now and it’s paying off.

I’ve been trying to teach myself a lot of new skills and pick up new tools to use beyond just the daily news churn. I’ve been studying how to analyze the data behind why some companies might be due for rise or fall. I’ve become super interested in how it all works. I’m interested in options, how foreign exchanges are impacted by news, what patterns tend to make stocks move in certain directions. It’s definitely a passion I seemed to have picked up late in life and I’m grateful for it.

I’m hoping to write more about what I learn and share it here and potentially elsewhere, but for now, I wanted to simply share how excited I am about a whole new world opening up to me.

I know a lot of you out there have been doing this a lot longer than I have so any tips or resources you’ve found helpful are appreciated. Leave them in the comments.
