Five Stages of Saving and Investing
1.) A Put-and-Take Account
In this first stage you set up an account where you can save the money you are starting to make. This account holds the money that you will need to pay bills and for all the things you need. At first you don't want to start investing your money in things until you have enough to pay bills and have extra for things that come up on the spot.
2.) Beginning to Invest
When you are in a stable enough place that you have money saved up and extra for the random things that come up, you can begin to invest into small things. The first couple of investments you start you should make sure they are low risk investments that you are less likely to lose your money on. These small investments could be bonds or mutual funds. Most people start investing in their 20's or 30's.
3.) Systematic Investing
Once you have become confident enough in your investing skills, you can start to invest in higher things. You can start to invest a set dollar amount each pay period. This is usually on stocks, mutual funds or annuities. The goals for this stage are long- range, the best way to see an increase in you money is to leave it for a couple of years.
4.) Strategic Investing
After you set up your put- and - take account, you have started small investments and are stable in your higher investments and you are at a stable place you can begin to manage your portfolio. You want to make sure you balance out your gains and losses in different investments.
5.) Speculative Investing
Once everything is stable and you are ready the final step is speculative investing. This would be in penny stocks, junk bonds or collectibles for example. These are more of the high risk levels, this also has the potential to yield high returns. The greater risk you take the greater potential you have of making money.
Passive Strategy: A financial strategy where the investor invests in accordance with a per-determined strategy that doesn't entail any forecasting. The idea is used to minimize investing fees and to avoid the adverse consequences of failing to correctly anticipate the future

Active Strategies: Strategy where the manager makes specific investments with the goal of outperforming an investment benchmark index. Investors or mutual funds that do not aspire to create a return in excess of a benchmark index will often invest in an index fund that replicates as closely as possible the investment weighting and returns of that index. Increasing returns rather than transaction fees.
Buy and Hold: Buy and hold is a long-term investment strategy based on the view that in the long run financial markets give a good rate of return despite periods of volatility or decline.
