    You can contact just about any of the investment groups out there and ask to speak with a investment professional, they will tell you anything you want to know about investing and how to do it and why you should do it. I highly recommend that you call at least three different company's to find out what they all agree on and move from there. If you are ex military Go to They will take great care of you. I personally do almost all my investing through them. good luck!

    I think the best way to start investing is to first see what the best traders are buying and selling. This is the idea behind the site - this is a free site that lets you create a portfolio of stocks with $100,000 in "play" money. Each day the site ranks the best performing portfolios, so you can see how your picks perform compared to other investors. You can also read posts on investing from the best traders, as well as share your own investing ideas.

    Here are this month's best traders:

    Good luck!

    There is a recomended reading list on there that has a VERY good list of books to get started.

    Start with Common Sense On Mutual Funds by John Boogle and Wall Street Words from A to Z.

    Both of these are very good reads.

    before you begin to invest in stock, consider 4 components

    FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSIS(economic data, company financial strenghth, management style) tell you what company is a good value to buy

    TECHNICAL ANALYSIS (charts+ technical indicators) tell you WHEN to sell when the company show sign going bad

    SENTIMENTAL ANALYSIS (investor mood is very importtant) check out bull/bear ratio, put/call ratio, VIX index( fear index)

    MARKET CYCLES ( SEASONAL CYCLE will effect market) check out the book STOCK TRADER ALMANAC by JEFF HIRSCH

    when you combine all these components to make your decision on any invest ment will be the powerful tool for the rest of your life and you come out the winner at the end
