How should I begin investing in the Share Market? This is the query which comes in the thoughts of those who are not familiar with the stock industry and who are not directly related or deal with the area of finance. But think me investing in the stock industry is not that difficult, like any other ability it can be learned with gaining enough knowledge about businesses and performing some evaluation.

For novices I advise to begin with virtual ‘demat account’ and commence trading there to get some expertise about trading and in which sector you ought to invest. You can sign up for virtual trading accounts at and When you are confident adequate of your self then you can open demat account with any of the brokers or in the bank and start off investing with small amount first and underneath someones’ guidance who has some expertise in investing.

Some of them are Oil, Banks, Telecommunication, Actual Estate, Construction, Finance, Refineries, Steel, Broking companies, Food and beverages, Metals, Jewellery, Customer Goods etc. To make a decision upon the sector to invest in you ought to see the fundamentals of the firm, turnover, volumes traded, balance sheet and so on.

A single much more deciding factor is the term of investment you can either invest for brief term or lengthy term. Brief phrase investment are these in which investor buy shares and maintain in his/her portfolio for 3-6 months and extended term investments are those in which investor purchase share and preserve those in his/her portfolio for much more than 6 months. If you want to invest for brief phrase then you should pick critical moving sectors or stocks and you should not follow any third celebration recommendation blindly.

    I read an article last night that value investors had a meeting in CA, and they were all bemoaning the fact that this market is not good for value stocks. Is this true?

    I’ve tried winning at the stock market, and so far it hadn’t worked. So I figured if I found out how to lose money then NOT do it, that might work!

    So, how do you lose everything in the stock market?

    I am interested to do my own stock analysis. Eventually I hope to sell my reports, like for a buck or two. Is there any easy channel you can go through to sell the reports to investors?

    I’ve been shooting stock for about 5 years with 3 major libraries (2 traditional, 1 online only) and sales were increasing yearly till last year (2007), when they levelled off, and this year they have declined at all 3 agencies.
    Is the stock industry in terminal decline? Are there viable alternative income streams for people who shoot nature/ wildlife/ landscapes?
    Thanks for any views or comments.

    I am an engineer living and working in USA. My family’s (brothers and father) main business is stock market and securities brokerage, they run a company outside the USA. I think of switching career to eventually work with them. I started reading books about investment and stocks.
    What do you think the right track would be to have an adequate knowledge as a start?
    Courses? (what courses I need?)
    Websites? or Books?

    I would love a job in the stock market and I am willing to study if that is what it takes. I am going to do my maths degree but what other subject should I take, or, can I train without going to uni.
    Thank you.

    I know Yahoo finance provides some, but Im not too sure about their accuracy.
    I need daily quotes for stocks, industry indexes etc.
    I need the quotes in number format to be exported to Excel, for example. So not just charts.

    I’m wondering what is the best way to become a successful stock broker…

    I’m aware that there are many different exams and qualifications that are required to be completed before you can trade and work with stock. If someone could make up like a time line or some type of plan so I can look into each step more in depth that would be great.

    I’m currently a freshmen in college, if that helps.

    Thanks all.
