How to choose a company for investing .
I want to know how to choose a company to do an investment. ie knowledge to invest.
How to invest depends on what you already know. We’ll assume that you’re beginning.A good primer is How to Make Money in Stocks by William O’Neil. You can get it cheap just about anywhere. It’s widely available new or used.Another good one is one of Jim Cramer’s books.But books will only get you so far. At some point, you’ll also want to get at least a little training. There are some great education companies if you want to make the investment. Investools.com or optionetics.com are both very good companies as is tmitchell.comFor free, you can start by visiting thestreet.com. That’ll get you a pretty good primer so at least you’ll understand what the markets are and what a stock is, etc. If you get a chance, watch Mad Money on CNBC. Don’t trade any of his picks. Just use the show to get you to understand some basics and get a feel for the market itself.Next, subscribe to something like investorsbusiness daily or something like that that can help you identify good stocks.Do a quick search (at the top of the page) on ROTH IRAs. You’ll want to put some money in there.Once you understand stocks, go to 888options.com. It’s a website that’ll help you understand options (what they do, how they work, etc). You don’t need to trade them, but the more you know, the more you’ll see how options can really be the safest way to invest (once you’re educated).As you get more advanced, you might want a technical analysis book like Murphy’s Visual Investor or A Technical Analysis Course by Meyer.If it’s discipline (which is crucial to successful trading), probably Trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas or Mastering the Trade by John CarterI know that’s a LOT to absorb. Just take it one step at a time for now. Start slow, then as you figure things out, move out of mutual funds into ETFs and/or stocks.Congrats on getting started. If you have any questions, please let me know.Hope this helps!
What are some good books for stock investing BEGINNERS.
I m trying to find books on stock investing that teach how to invest in stocks from complete scratch, books that teach like this person has no idea whatsoever about the stock market, not books that brush up on your current investing skills. Any good suggestions?
Before you spend $0.01 on any investment, you must know what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and how to do it and make sure you have the money to do it. Also, you must have an understanding of the rules & regulations that govern what you’re trying to do. Before you invest in any security, the first investment you should make is in yourself, and the best investment you can make is by educating yourself.Begin your education by learning why you should invest and the importance of being able to make your own decisions or how the pro’s make theirs. Start your education by reading “Investing for Dummies” by Eric Tyson.To continue your education select some of the followingBeating the Street by Peter LynchBulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered, by GalleaFrom Riches to Rags, by I.C.

And remember, if they offer free information, get it.And when you think you want to invest/trade, try some paper trading to test your skills without spending you money http://simulatorinvestopedia.com/ http://www.moneyworks4me.com/and/or http://www.tradingsimulation.com/After you feel comfortable with what you re trying to do, visit the Web sites of some of the more popular brokerage firms. So if you feel comfortable with what you see on line and look at the cost and/or charges. When you are ready to go, just open an account with the firm using their on-line services. Please remember, the cheapest is not always the best. Even though you’re opening an account on line. you can always call the firm s “customer service” area for helpYou at least have made the right decision to start investing, this is the first big step and it won’t be your last. Keep taking those steps forward and along the way never take the advice from people that are not in the market or try to tell you not to invest.Good luck on your journey, study hard and you’ll invest well.`

does anyone know good tips on how to invest.
I am looking for information on how to properly invest, and prepare for the future. How does investing works, and what are some useful websites and tips. Thanks to all who respond
Standard investment advice is that you should invest in a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, and money market funds. If you are like most people you will invest part of your money aggressively in stocks, and part conservatively in money market funds and bond funds. However, some young people will go all stocks, and some very conservative people will go all money markets. The links below have on-line questionnaires which will give you an idea of how to do “Asset Allocation,” determining how much to put in each type of investment.You want to buy a diversified portfolio of stocks as individual stocks are too risky. Highly knowledgeable people can buy a properly balanced portfolio, but most folks have a difficult time balancing things on their own. They will misbalance their portfolio by buying all small stocks or all growth stocks, or some other misbalanced assortment of stocks. Back in 2000, Some people bought all Internet stocks; they got burnt when they all crashed together. You have to diversify across industries. Unless you know what you are doing, it is best to buy mutual funds that will diversify for you. Buy no-load, low cost funds. Mutual funds should have expense ratios of less than 0.5%.I like index funds. Because of their broad diversification, you are less likely to have a dramatic drop in value. They also have the lowest management fees. For stock funds, I like putting ~70% of one’s money in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund. and ~30% in the Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund. The Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund is good for a bond fund. The Vanguard Target Retirement funds can be a good all-in-one stock and bond funds for an IRA. (If you have less than 3,000 dollars, you can’t invest in most Vanguard funds. For such people I would suggest Schwab funds.) There are many different opinions out there on what the best mutual funds are. Read the links below and form your own opinion.Once you have stared investing, you need to keep adding money on a regular basis. Many funds allow you to set up automatic investment programs that take a set amount of money out of your bank account each month.If your company offers a 401K plan at work, try to invest the most you can. The money grows tax free, and some companies will match your contribution. Investing in a mutual fund IRA is also a good idea. If you have children, you may want to consider a 529 plan or other college savings plan that grows tax free.Buying a house instead of renting will save you a lot of money in the long run. You don’t have to pay rent and you build equity in your house instead. Buying rental property can be a good investment for some people. However, being a landlord can be hard work, and many people are not good at it. If you don’t know how to handle deadbeat renters, you can have trouble.If you have high-interest debt, like credit cards, it is best to pay this off first before trying most of the investment ideas above. You should also have 3-6 months of salary saved up as an emergency fund in a bank or money market fund before trying more risky investments.I will warn you that there is a tremendous amount of stock investing books and websites that teach stock investing strategies that don’t work. Particularly bad are people that teach “technical analysis” systems that sound impressive, but don’t work.Believing advice you get on Yahoo answers can be risky, so read these websites for further information. If you find it too confusing, contact a professional financial advisor. They will charge you significant commissions, however.
Are there any books that educate you on how to invest in the stock market, and make a profit.
Thank You for your time
there are TONS of books that tell you how to invest. None of them guarantee a profit.Schwab.com, etrade.com, yahoo.com all have excellent information and advice, as do many others. The stock market is not for the weak willed. It is an unemotional sea of money to be made, and lost.I’ve made several thousand, and lost a little less. I’m in mutual funds now and real estate and haven’t looked back. You might consider them too.Good luck.Remember, buy low, sell high and you’ll be rich before you know it.
Is there any books on how to invest using Money Flow Index.
What are some of the best books that show how to invest using Money Flow Index?
TA indices are often not much more than a calculation with a relatively simple interpretation so unless it is book that is just devoted to TA indicators, I doubt you will find one dedicated to MFIHowever, this index and most others are quite well discussed in the Chart School section of Stockcharts.comhttp://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?i…give this a read and I think most of your questions will be answered.Actually I have just been assembling a new chart using Ichimoku clouds and Stockcharts.com free charts will only allow 2 indicators with this type of main chart….I had placed ROC as one of them but I think MFI fits better…thanks for the memory jog :)Hope this helps
