Invest or save it? I am looking to park some spare cash every month into one of the avenue.?

I am below 26 and well aware of the SCB Jumpstart account. At the same time, I also interested to go into ETF. So far I've only been doing trading. Any advice?

Before your start investing, it will always be helpful to go back to the basics - understand your cashflow. Here is some basic information: https://www.blog.pzl.sg/understanding-your-personal-cash-flow/

Next, ensure that you are properly insured especially in terms of healthcare insurance. While we chase after our financial goals, do not forget the engine of this race - which is you! Thereupon, ensure that you are adequately covered in case of any health changes. Everyone wants to be healthy, but life is unpredictable.

Thereafter, keep what you need in the bank, which is usually about 3 to 6 months your monthly expenses (as explained in the link above on understanding your cash flow). For the money that you can 'afford to lose', this money can be invested. This is simply because investment returns are non-guaranteed.
