. Teens clueless on investing basics: study « JO LEE MAGAZINE

FOX – Nearly half the 13- to 17-year-olds surveyed said that investing “feels out of reach” for them, and only one in five reported that they have started investing.

“According to the study, teens’ understanding of basic financial principles are at alarmingly low rates, with more than half saying investing is too confusing,” John Boroff, vice president of youth investing at Fidelity, told FOX Business. “We know financial education in the United States is a concern for many, so perhaps there’s no surprise teens find investing confusing.”
