Here is good suggestion BUY good books on investment and read lot of online material available learn basic. Also charts with explanation posted on this groups are also very good learning tools.
Learn to invest in stock market and then enter the market. Make an informed investment decision. Why do you invest in a particular stock should be very clear to you, don’t go by tips but ask for reason why someone is giving such tips.
Also keep this in mind:
“WHEN YOU LOSE DO NOT LOSE THE LESSON”
Hence loss made in stock market is the BEST INVESTMENT you can ever make as it can teach you something which no-one will be able to teach you. Then its up to you to learn that lesson and persist on investing in the stock market.
There are cases of people staying away from stock market as they made loss the first time.
You need to invest lot of time in this market to really get ready and make a killing and keep doing it.
Since last 1998 I am in this market and 2008 I did not make more than 15% of my investment in Stocks. I am just happy that I did not make any loss in a fall for first time in these 12yrs. This is very small example of persistence. Mr Jhunjhunwala (The big bull of this run-up) is in this market since sensex was in 3 digits.
May luck bless you with good learning losses (lessons) in your first investments and May god give you intellect and strength to learn them.
So start small so that you make small losses which you would absorb without getting desperate.
