Inpact Media: Have young people suddenly discovered the stock market?
Corona has given an additional boost to the youth trend that Deutsches Aktieninstitut has been observing in stock investing since 2014, states Dr Franz-Josef Leven. Corona lockdown, more free time, social media and financial influencers have played their part in getting more young people excited about the stock market. However, GameStop & Co. have shown that gambling with speculative stocks is not a good guide. A successful, broadly diversified stock investment is a marathon, not a sprint.
