MerexMarkets has been in the investing industry for a long time and at MerexMarkets we know that investing is not just in the hands of professional investors and traders.

MerexMarkets works with a group of professional traders, which allows MerexMarkets to make the amounts of profits we make every day for MerexMarkets clients, but that does not mean that anyone who wants to venture into investing, has to be on as high a level as MerexMarkets.

An investment can be done intentionally buy buying a product or buying into an investment with the expectation of profits, or it can be by using something which already belongs to you and reselling it for a higher price than the one it was acquired at.

For example if you have a vacation home, or a flat in the city, which you do not use often and you’d rather make some profits off of it, you can resell or rent out that property and start making money off of it.

It is an investment provided the money you make out of it is more than the money you originally paid for it.

The same applies to anything you own, your car, your TV set, or any object you own which you can sell for a higher price than you paid, Of course it’s not easy to sell something for higher than you paid for it, especially when time has already passed by.

In some cases you can choose to think of the objects value as what it is valued at in the current day, and if receiving that value would be higher than nothing. For example you own a car which cost 10.000 ten years ago, and is currently valued at 5000. If you no longer have any use for the car, or its services are costing you a lot of money, they you can sell the car for 5000 and make a 5000 which you would have otherwise not made at the present time. It does not cover the cost of 10.000 which you paid ten years ago, but it has changed with market value, and therefore you did make money out of it.

Investing is all about looking for opportunities and seeing where you can make money when needed. It may not officially be investing in the sense that you put in money and make profits from that money, but it is a way to be smart about what you own and what you currently have, and make sure you do not lose value, but you do make the most you can out of a current situation.
