I am a recent grad who just began working for a 'big 4' software engineering firm. I earn a good salary and I would like to invest 75% of it efficiently so that I can retire early at age 45.
Various sites that I have read suggest that investing provides a great long term return. I don't know much about stock trading but I want to learn various methods of investing. I'm learning as much as possible from googling terms but I think I need hell lot of time for this.
I do not want to invest in mutual funds and let someone work over my money. I do not plan to invest all my money in stocks. I also plan to put some percentage in fixed deposits and government bonds which are less risky and provide a lower return.
What should investment strategy be?
TLDR : Can anyone suggest effective methods or road-map beginners should follow from where one should start learning stock trading and basic market terminologies to feel confident for trading?
