    I’m wondering if any one has done or recommend a good place where to get some good education on the stock market?

    the property market is filled with sprukers of whom claim to be investment gurus & lately I’ve been noticing like in the investment space of people claiming to have made millions with 30% plus returns blah blah

    I’ve got a basic understandings of ETFs and do like them as an option but can see some benefits of some education for a better understanding of the markets?

    The ASX runs free courses - not sure what they're doing post-Covid.

    If you’re interested in trading, Chris Tate and Louise Bedford have a mentor program which is excellent.

    Jack Bogles common sense on mutual funds is probably the best book on the markets. The economist guide to investment strategy is also a good guide to understanding asset classes. Then bill Bernstein’s stuff and David Swensen unconventional success.
