The way to look at it is this - what do you think the bank does with your savings? Hold it in a vault for you? No, they invest it and loan it out to others for a far higher APR than they give you for saving with them. In this market saving cash is pointless for the purposes of wealth creation. If you are looking long term then investing makes more sense.
If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.
Saving money vs investing? Both can be helpful if you can first clearly state your goals. If you want to grow your wealth over a period of time, do you then invest in everything to get there? The answer is that that may not be very responsible. Do you have risk management in place? Do you desire to see your investment grow over time and then sell later? Or do you simply like the idea of having your money backed by something valuable?
Do you desire to 'earn' income on your investment, and then reinvest these dividends? Such a practice may take a couple of years before break-even, and you should do your due diligence on the company paying the dividends. But as soon as you reach that break-even point, reinvesting them by buying more stock at the right price points will trigger a compound effect that will grow quite quickly indeed from that point onwards.
Banks and insurance companies both invest in income-producing assets, but are still required by law to have cash reserves always at hand to remain solvent in order to live up to their responsibilities. Of course, an individual is not a company, but you CAN mimic the strategies of these companies by deciding on a percentage of 'minimum cash reserves' to save up and leave alone and then devote a percentage of your income towards investing and trading (both of which come with their own risk management and strategies). Perhaps you are courageous enough to start up a side business to generate extra income for investing and/or saving. Think about this and visualize in your mind how you would want your finances to look, and then make a recording of it on a paper or an excel page in order to see how it may be set up to work as intended.
The world of investing is exciting and can yield incredible returns to those who prepare before they execute.
Both have their pros and cons and have their importance. If you invest regularly and with the right tactic, you can grow your balance. On the other hand, saving your funds will not grow them. So, everyone should invest. But saving is also important because life is unpredictable. Hence, before investing, save some money for your personal needs.
In my opinion, a certain amount should be saved for safety purposes and the rest should be invested to grow your funds. Only investment might not turn out to give positive output always and saving always won’t let you grow your funds.
It all depends on the individual. That is how much risk you are willing to take with your money. If you are not a risk taker, saving money is your only option; however, if you are willing to risk your money, the possibility of growing your savings money increases. But only if you have properly analyzed the market.
hendrickscock posted: You can do both, invest and save your money. The idea is to secure funds, however you wish to go ahead with it, is entirely up to you. Those interested in investing should create a budget outline so they don’t waste the majority of their capital while understanding the market functionality. That’s right, preparation is necessary when dealing with the financial world. As long as individuals are prepared, earning those profit returns don't sound all that difficult.
If you want to increase the value of your money, investing is a good option. with good investment strategies, you can multiply your money. However, the saving will only provide you with some interest, which in my opinion is not a good way to increase your wealth.

Scalping as short-term trading where traders take a profit of only five or ten pips in every single trade, low spread broker is more appropriate for using scalping, sometimes I work scalping in my broker FXOpen.
