    I love this podcast because it crushes your dreams and getting rich quick. They actually got me into reading stats for anything you’re tuned in to the Investing for Beginners podcast led by Andrew Sather and Dave Ahern with a step-by-step premium investing guide for beginners. Your path to financial freedom starts now.











    [DAVE] All right, folks, welcome to Investing for Beginners. Tonight we have episode 212. And tonight, we’re going to answer some great listener questions we got recently. So without any further ado, I will go ahead and read the first question. And Andrew and I will do our usual give and take.











    So, Good morning, guys. Great podcast; I have a question about how much to invest in the stock market. Well, the more I learn about the stock market, the more confident I become in it. However, I still have a majority of my savings in a money market account, 80% in savings account 20% in the stock market; I am slowly starting to divert more of a percentage to stocks and bonds. However, I want to put more of my savings into working in the stock market. And our investment vehicle has a yield of at least 3%. As currently, most of my savings are sitting in a savings account that is losing value in real terms. I am not just confident enough to dump most of my savings in the stock market. If you were to advise someone how to invest 80% of your savings, where would you recommend putting that cash to work in the market and or bond market if you are willing to incur a low amount of risk with a yield between three to 5%? Thanks in advance, Jay.











    So Andrew, what are your thoughts on Jay’s great question.











    [ANDREW] A lot to unpack. So I guess first off, I’ll start by saying I invest 100% of my savings into stocks. And that’s because I have a very long time horizon. I think anybody with a time horizon longer than 20 years or so should. I don’t see why anybody shouldn’t do that. That’s what I do. And it’s simply because over the long term, the stocks do well,

And it’s a way for investors to get exposure to real estate without having to go out and buy the real estate themselves.

    [0:33] DAVE:  All right, welcome to Investing for Beginners podcast. Tonight we have episode 211. We’re going to go back to the well in terms of requests for questions that we got recently. So, without further ado, I will go ahead and read the first question, and then Andrew and I will do our usual give and take.











    So here we go. Hi, Andrew, I just started listening to the investing for beginners podcast, and I didn’t know where else to get in contact with you. My wife and I have a TD Ameritrade and were wondering, the recommendation is Different for every trade and is that the same across all brokerages. Thank you, Christian. So Andrew, what are your thoughts on Christians questions. 











    [00:39] ANDREW: The brokerages I use or do not charge me to make trades. So you know, obviously, you want to open a brokerage account if you want to buy stocks, you want to invest in the stock market, buy ETFs, anything of that sort. And so, the ones that I use personally are Fidelity. I use Merrill Edge; I use ally invest. One more than something like Schwab. So they all work pretty well, but none of them charge. Are you getting charged to charge?
