Default how to earn money at this age?

Im 21 this year, just got my diploma and waiting to be enlist. I would like know how can i invest to start earning at my age with very little capital to start with.

I've been reading up about investing, and still couldnt quite figure out how it works and how should i start with. Can someone experienced guide me on how do i go about investing? For example which stocks should i start looking at? and how do i determine whether that stock is a good buy or not?

Or is there any other good investment opportunities for students like me?

i really appreciate any help given thanksss in advance!

It's always good to think big and start small, esp when you're young. Check out Fundsupermart.com | Mutual Fund, Unit Trust, Fixed Income, Bond, Investment where you can start small at 1K.

That is the worst way to get rich. By the time you finish paying all the management fee, platform fee, sales charge etc, nothing left.

The best way to get rich quick in SG is to get a high paying job in a MNC / bank and bet on properties. Fantasizing on how to get maximum returns on a few thousand bucks is a complete waste of time.

I agree. Or you can choose your parents wisely, or marry a rich spouse.

The first most important thing to invest in is the attitude.

Never think that money will come easily.

Invest in yourself - Upgrade your academic foundation by studying (formal and informal), do small projects or business ventures for friends and acquaintances, save some capital to start a business.

Hi all

I am interested in doing some investments, but dont really want to do the usual put in banks, buy stocks, unit trust or property.

Anyone knows any lobang for alternative investments or private funds with good track record that can put money in?

TIA
