I was looking through Reddit in some of the finance subreddits I follow.
I came across an app called FreeTrade, an app based in the UK which acted very similar to Robinhood. Free comission trading! I got myself in I signed up and placed £3,000 in.
I am not going to lie, I didn't really know much about ETFs or what they were at this point. I just knew it would give me good coverage as a decent risk level.
That was that. I was invested in the stock market.
