At 21 years old, would it be wise to invest in CDs or go straight to financial market investments?
100% of people found this answer helpful

Without all information necessary to make a definite recommendation, the obvious answer is absolutely not.

You are far too young to invest in CDs. The reweard is not nearly high enough to even warrant consideration. Say you throw $50k into a 3yr CD at 3% per year compounded monthly, you won't even make $5k on the investment. You have plenty of time ahead of you - don't waste the early years (most important years) on low risk/low reward vehicles like CDs.
