One of the skills needed for wealth creation is that of stock market investing. It might seem a risky proposition to invest, but it is a worthy skill to learn as you will make excellent returns on your money. You may think that it is better to let a trained financial money manager invest your money but this is not true. The problem is that you are paying for the overheads of company expenses and many tiers of financial advisers and brokers. You pay regardless of whether they make you any money or not!! This alone is an excellent reason to spend some time understanding the stock market.
