Investing in Stocks during COVID-19

Working from home means you can do all your work tasks online from your couch in the same pair of leggings that you wore to bed. People are still working during this pandemic, either from home or in person, so why not keep investing in stocks?

Here are three ways to keep investing in stocks, or invest for your first time, without having to change out of sweats!

  1. Acorns is an app that is geared towards first-time and frequent investors. It offers users the ability to “invest the change” by linking their credit or debit cards to the app. It then rounds up purchases and invests the difference into diversified portfolios. This app is AMAZING for those who want to “invest and forget” since it does a lot of the work for you. (https://www.acorns.com)
  2. TD Ameritrade is another investing app. This app puts emphasis on the basics of investing. They offer an abundance of information on streaming quotes, real-time balances, fund transfers, and up-to-date news and market research. This app is ideal for those who love to do ample research before making decisions. (https://www.tdameritrade.com/home.page)
  3. Robinhood is the best free investing app! While Robinhood does not give you access to a full range of investments like mutual funds, it works amazing for stocks and ETFs! If you’re not ready to invest just yet, there are options to easily place stocks on your watch list for another time. This app also allows you to compare and contrast many stocks at the same time before decision making! (https://robinhood.com/us/en/)
