3 Benefits of Starting a Career in Stocks and Shares

A career in stocks and shares offers many benefits that may perfectly fit the needs of WAHMs.

As a work-at-home mom, it can be difficult to find a career that suits you. Understandably, your kids are your pride and joy, and nothing can change that. Jobs that suit your schedule can be hard to find, but there’s one that may perfectly fit your needs: trading stocks and shares.

Low Capital Requirements

Admittedly, trading can be a risky business. However, in some forms, such as share dealing, you only require low amounts of capital, and you pay very little in fees. From share dealing to stocks and shares ISAs, you can choose the amount of capital that you’d like to inject, which effectively sets your level of risk.

Most places also do not have limits on funding, so you have the flexibility to increase or lower your stake whenever you like. It’s a form of capital injection that can move with you, regardless of your circumstances.

Learn in your Spare Time

Plus, due to the nature of the markets, particularly the forex market that’s open 24 hours a day, you can learn in a time that suits you. This is slightly different to a stocks and shares market, but is another great example of a similar type of job.

Being tied to a job that requires you to work 9 to 5 can be an incredibly unattractive proposition as a stay-at-home mom. However, with trading, there’s absolutely no need for this.

Markets are open night and day, so if you want to wait until your little one pops off to sleep to start, that’s absolutely fine. Plus, due to the nature of the work, you can dip in and out whenever, and there’s no need to stay logged into your account.

Learn at Your Own Pace

Finally, with trading, you can learn at your own pace, with many companies offering demo accounts so that you can “try before you buy” so to speak. This way, you can practice to see whether trading is right for you.

In addition, sites such as Investopedia are a great resource so that you can help to learn how to trade – and they’re completely free.

Give stocks and shares trading a try today and see if it’s right for you.
