These last few months have been very difficult for investors right around the globe. The share markets have on regular occasions both fallen and risen dramatically giving every investor a real financial and an emotional ‘roller coaster’ ride.
There is no end in sight to this irrational investment market behaviour and it’s anyone’s guess as to when it may get back to so called stability.
What can we learn from these difficult times? Put simply, what happens on the investment markets is out of our control, but spending and saving is under our control. The more we put away for our own savings means we rely less on the unreliable investment markets to achieve our financial goals.
At humble savers we aim to bring our readers practical articles in an easy to read format, to help our readers to become better savers. We do a great deal of research and at times we find some very useful personal finance websites. Below are some of our favourites:
