What is DIY Investing?

Do-it-yourself (DIY) investing is a style of investing where you build and manage your own investment portfolio. You decide what products (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, options etc.) are suitable for you based on your unique investment objectives. This is a great option for an investor who's comfortable in making their own decisions without advice — you're in control.
