But 85% of people who invest in the stock market eventually lose money. Every now and then, the market crashes, and those who are not very knowledgeable are usually among the first of the 85% to lose money.
Directly investing in the stock market is very exciting, and actually very easy, but if you do not understand it yet, it is also very easy to lose money.
You could indirectly invest in the stock market through mutual funds, by having a fund manager do the stock investing for you. Equity funds are mutual funds that are invested mainly in the stock market.

Basically, directly investing in the stock market is like driving your own car or jeep to a distant destination you are not very familiar with. It is much more difficult if you are not yet an experienced driver.
