At what age did you learn about the stock market versus what age were you when you actually started investing?
I learned about it as a senior in high school in 1963 in Mama Nathe's social class. I made a dummy investment in "Heinz Foods" mostly because I liked their ketchup! Four years later, after self-funding my bachelors degree in chemistry, I purchased $1000 worth of stocks and mutual funds with the money I had saved from my first 6 months of a job, as I enlisted in the USNavy during VietNam conflict. I continued to add small amounts on my $400/month income then, and have continued to add for the last 50 years! Life is good, no financial worries!!! When did you start and get in to the "habit"?
