Not sure if this will make a difference, but I'm based in Australia. I've worked a casual job in retail alongside University studies and I've saved up about $25K so far. I'm not sure if this is a good amount to start investing (I'll save up more if need be, I don't want to use any of my family's money for this).
I've read the FAQ but I don't think it mentions on "where" I could invest (the platform used). I'm literally clueless in this area (I've only learnt a bit of finance in university).
How would I be able to start out (assuming after I've read the recommended books)? What platform am I supposed to use? Is it some online stock website where I manage my portfolios through a web browser or do I do this at a bank or something?
Note: None of the $25K I've accumulated will be needed in "the near future".
