The way to overcome investing fear is to understand your risk tolerance and to only invest in companies that you truly understand. That's the best way to limit or to eliminate the investing fear that you will have. Buy what you know. Only invest if you actually have a knowledge of what you're investing in. Don't get caught up in all the crazies that are going on. Invest in what you know. In the long run, you'll do quite well. First and largest, compare you recent return objectives. For example, do you have any short term, mid term, long term goals. And then what is the core cap you need to reach those kinds of goals. Second, always measure your capabilities. Together there's a willingness to take the risk. My piece of advice on overcoming your investment fear is to remember that investing money is always better than spending money. Any money you spend, you'll never see again. If you do your homework, pick companies that you believe in and you invest in them. Over the longterm, you're bound to see good results. Not fear the information that's out there. With the Internet, there is a ton of information out there that you can use to help you understand more what a company does and what the true fundamentals of that company encompass. So from that point of view, you can learn a lot about a company before investing in it.
