A bunch of people have given well intentioned but super vague answers to your question, such as "watch videos on khan academy" or "read newspapers."

These are Bad Answers and instead you just need to read and obey two books and two books only:

1) https://www.amazon.com/Bogleheads-Guide-Retirement-Planning/...

2)https://www.amazon.com/Bogleheads-Guide-Investing-Taylor-Lar...

If you do this, it will prevent you from being any more screwed than anyone else, regardless of market conditions. You will also not become flamboyantly rich overnight in the way that Crypto speculators do.




You might also want to check out the Bogleheads Wiki [1] first. It gives a good overview of what these books are about.
