(CNN) — You don’t have to be a financial know-it-all on Wall Street to start investing. You don’t even have to have that much money. Here are three easy ways to get started and they’re as easy as downloading an app.
If you follow certain companies and have done your research Robinhood is an app that lets you easily buy and sell shares – for free! You can start with as little or as much money as you want and it directly links to your bank account so you can always add more.
If you just want to leave your money on autopilot, then consider putting it in Wealthfront. This is like leaving a broker in charge of your money but instead, you’re leaving it to a computer algorithm. The app invests based on market trends and your own risk tolerance. Best part: No fees to manage up to 10-thousand dollars.
If nothing else, consider using acorns to get started. Acorns is similar to all of those keep the change programs. Only it takes that change and invests it in the market. So your investment grows without you even noticing.
Seriously, you don’t have to do anything! But remember the market goes up and definitely goes down. One thing is certain, the biggest winners are usually the ones in it for the long-haul.
