I have been lurking, reading information about personal finances for a few months (if not years) now, but I didn't get the chance to start because I don't know where to start.
Here is the thing: I am French, young (19), and have a little bit of money saved, and I'd like to start setting up a portfolio with, say, 1000€. I'd also like to be able to add some money to it on a regular basis.
I know I should look for a broker, but the information I found is for U.S. people. I think that from France I would have to pay currency conversion stuff, and that doesn't seem good.
If anyone here is French, or simply knows or has advice on how to start a portfolio when you're French, that would be awesome.
I am looking for mostly moderate-risk investments for now. I don't know if this is realistic as a beginner, but 5% profit seems a fine start to me.
p.s. I know there are already some questions about starting, but my question is more about the specific point of being French (European) and what it implies.
