Trading vs Investing
In this weeks episode Jonathan and Rory talk about the difference between Trading vs Investing. These terms are often used interchangeably amongst the retail community however, it’s important to distinguish their differences and to be aware that trading and investing often have different processes.
Both Jonathan and Rory have different opinions on whether you should trade before investing or invest before you trade. However, both the blokes agree that learning the fundamentals to finance & economics is a great starting point as well as learning about technical analysis and sentiment.
Jonathan and Rory also talk through their own processes for both trading and investing and highlight their key differences whether it’s in the trade idea generation process or whether it’s about risk management or psychology.
The blokes then go on to talk about how retail traders have impacted the financial markets with the influence of wall street bets & other social platforms, plus the impact influencers can have on the markets.
