There is no limit to how much you can learn...just start investing little by little..you will learn something new everyday :).

my father is in this stock market line and he has been doing it for years... but he always says that one should know abt the company's background and prospects and without that on one should even enter into stock investing. one more thing is, to have good returns u should opt for long term traded shares like the BLUE CHIP COS.....

@gbk: i guess that's one way of putting it.

My folks at home are bankers but they havnt traded in the stocks although they do hold a couple of thousand of shares of the banks they work for. Im slowly learning about the stocks. Long term is surely more safer and profitable than short terms which can prove to be profitable and risky as well.

Well well a very general but vague question. Yes, investing in stock market should start with knowledge gaining. Do not speculate at all. We are investors not traders. You can find a good comparison between speculators and investors in book Intelligent Investor written by Benjamin Graham - investment hero of all times. There is a way to make gentle profit in stock market, you should learn how to technically analyze a stock and then you should proceed with your decisions. Yes market sentiment drives the market - but just for short term. So learn technical analysis of any security you are buying. Hope this helps.

i like the idea of trading after a system, but NOT be the one making the decisions....the human mind to weak to be objective.

So, I would like to have secretary who would carry out buying and selling after trading signals from a system...that would be ideal....

I know that there are automatic trading systems out there...but these can be very dangerous and dependent of so many factors (internet connection, downloading service of proved works, etc...)

the little I know of stock market is to invest your funds in diversified stocks and not in a single stock-correct me if I am wrong. :).
