At what age do you think financial training and education should begin with children? – http://ow.ly/9cUsD

 

It should begin as soon as children can do basic arithmetic. When I was in first grade, my class took a trip to the bank across the street, and all through elementary school, we had “banking”, where each week we brought in an envelope with a little change in it for our own savings accounts. It was a great way to get used to thinking about savings and personal finances from a very early age.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
