Stocks are the darlings of today's investor. Everyone today wants to make big money through stocks. Firstly, the big reason behind is that stock investment does not require big chunks of money as in the case of property investment. Secondly, there are no restrictions of timely payment or premium as in the case of Insurance. And thirdly there is no fixed time gap as in the case of bank's fixed deposits, so as to start earning from investments. Thus, we can conclude that
Investing in stocks depends on the pocket and willingness of the amount of investment.
There are no timely payment of premiums, a person can invest at any point of time when he/she feels comfortable.
There is no time gap to wait for, as the person is free to sell his/her stock whenever he/she feels that the stock price has moved enough in the positive territory to give enough profit margins.
