I want to invest in equities, but I don't have much money. Is there a minimum number of shares I must buy?

I suggest opening an account with Charles Schwab and start a monthly investment plan with the amount that you can afford. They have proprietary Schwab One exchange traded funds that have zero transaction costs. I believe they also waive the $1,000 minimum account size if you set up an automatic investment program. They have 200 low cost investment options. The most important thing is to take action and get it set up. It will be fun to watch it grow and you can increase your contributions as your income rises.
