What is the Best Stock Market Book For Beginners?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

* Hi, I am 17 years old and want to start researching and understanding the stock market.

* I have no idea at all how the stock market works and need to know everything from the basics.

* But, I am extremely smart (33 on the ACT, 4.0 GPA) so I believe I can catch on quick and want to know some more complex methods as well.

* I decided I should start reading up on the stock market and get a head start. I hope to be able to make a lot of money off the stock market throughout the rest of my life.

* What book would be the best book for me to start off reading? Also, any other helpful information would be appreciated.

Start off with some of the videos here http://www.hotstockmarket.com/forum/thread/81513/learn-stock-market-investing-how-to-get-started-in-the-stock-market


Then read the education section, the stick threads have everything new investors need to start off on the right foot.

Welcome to HSM! IMHO, I believe all the information you need to be a successful trader/investor can be found online. Do some searching and save some money!


Good luck!

Welcome! I agree! This place has taught me things about the Stock Market that I probably wouldn't find elsewhere. I personally like some of the people here. They have helped me along the way. I am learning about Technical Analysis, or TA. And, I have had great people assist me here on this forum.


Good Luck and hope you learn from the Best!

Chinese Small Stocks Wake Up With A Fury



After months of a deep freeze, Chinese small cap stocks are showing signs of major life. These plays have surged dramatically today, with many gains topping 10%.


Renren Inc(NYSE:RENN) $3.17, +0.38 (13.62%), E Commerce China Dangdang Inc (ADR) (NYSE:DANG) $4.17, +0.30 (7.75%), China New Borun Corp (NYSE:BORN) $1.50, +0.19 (14.50%).


Chinese small caps have been hated for years at this point. This is due to the constant stream of fraudulent companies being discovered in China. Investors do not truly know if the Chinese company they are looking at has revenues and earnings as stated, or if it is all made up.


With the market trading at all time highs, that seems to be a thought fading from view. Reality has little meaning when investors are running after yield and momentum. Now the search is on for anything that could advance and is still near lows. For the Chinese stocks, multi year lows. Spec money is chasing anything that has a pulse and these are no different.
