    Please do not go anywhere near a broker yet, you are clearly not ready to be risking your savings on the stock markets.

    Try virtual trading to learn everything you need to know.

    When you speak of information on stock trading, I presume you mean a place where you can learn about it. Forexpros.com is a site for those who trade in foreign exchange, not the stock market. There is a book out there, “The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Investing”, here’s a link:

    http://www.amazon.com/Neatest-Little-Guide-Market-Investing/dp/0452295823/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1294237786&sr=8-1

    It is an excellent guide for beginners in investing in the stock market. It is where I learnt the basics of the trade and hopefully where you will too. In terms of websites that speak of the subject, then look no further than the following links:

    http://www.howtotradestocks.org/
    http://www.investopedia.com/university/stocks/stocks3.asp

    Furthermore, here is a video that clearly explains the stock market to people who are unaware of how it works:

    Good Luck and Happy Trading!

    That is a very wide open question. It’s like asking “Where can I get some information about cooking?”

    Stock trading comes in a variety of styles. I would recommend starting with something like The Motley Fool. Check out some of the books and their website. It starts at a pretty basic level and takes you up.

    I would also suggest that you start watching CNBC. What “Mad Money” with Jim Cramer. Although, people seem to universally lambaste the guy, the truth is that he does a pretty good job covering the basics. (You could check out some of his books, too.)

    I always suggest that people get Investors Business Daily and read it cover to cover for a week or two. That would help you a lot. I like the IBD better than the WSJ. IBD is written at a 6th grade level. It’s not for idiots; it just doesn’t require an MBA to understand the point. (IBD promotes their own trading education – CAN SLIM. I do not suggest that you get CAN SLIM. The training never seems to end. You’ll spend $25,000 and still need more training.)

    You may want to consider some training. But, that’s another topic.

    Get those books, watch Mad Money, and check out a few of those websites.

    One other thought is that you might want to open a “paper trading” account. Most brokers offer a free, fully functional trial of their trading platform where you can practice using fake money.

    Borders books has tons of books on the subject, and Lord knows they could use the business. Stock trading and Forex are two different things.

    Newbies tend to think that the best way to play the stock market is to buy stocks then sell them a day or few months later, then repeat the process. This method of investing usually loses money. The people who buy and hold for long periods are the people who make the most money.

    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.

    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.
