What is the best site for charting stocks
I use a combination of StockCharts.com, Schwab, Yahoo Finance, Raging Bull, Investor Village, and Kitco. nm
what is safer and what will male you more money, stocks
or sock options?
You might take a look at http://www.optionsclearing.com/publicati…
I would suggest you stay away from options until you've been trading stocks for a while (preferably successfully)
will show you the various candlestick patterns and what they mean. I think however, that when they said to use candlestick charting, they probably meant to display your charts with candlestics because they provide immediate understanding of how your stock performed over the selected time period (minute, hour, day, week, etc.)
a good way to pick stocks
Occasionally the charts are correct. Occasionally they are not. When they are not it is call a whip saw. I tend to use charts but I do not rely on them completely. I have been whip sawed more than once. If the stock if fundamentally sound and the chart appears good, then I am apt to invest in it. I have frequently regretted it.
Which is the best charting
software for indian stocks
We have got vantagetrade.
This is the only site where you get best charts with historical prices of 1 year and more. The best part of the site is , it is free and gives buy and sell signals on the live charts of all the stocks on BSE and NSE.
So, go on.
There are other sites too,
You can check these sites too.
What is a good place for a beginner to learn about investing in stocks
If I were young, I would be investing in small cap growth mutual funds
or stocks. Go here for excellent low cost advice (http://www.aaii.com/aaiiportfolios/comme…
Don't be alarmed at the low cost - it has some of the best financial advice on the Web.
You have lots of time before retirement which means the magic of compound interest will just keep building and building. It really works and if you keep investing every year, in 10 or 15 years you will be surprised at how it mounts up. In 30 years you could be a millionaire which probably won't amount to much in 30 year owing the the ravages of inflation.
And that's the primary reason to keep investing in small cap growth stocks - they will flog inflation to death.
When investing in mutual funds, select the no-load funds only. Do not invest in mutual funds with a "load", an up front commission that you have to pay before when they sell you the mutual fund. Some charge as much as 10% which is a rrip-off. Many studies have shown that the no-load funds do as well as the load funds and sometimes a lot better.
Look at the AAI Shadow Stock Portfolio. I would try and emulate that portfolio if you want to invest in stocks. It was up 25% as of November 2006. The Vanguard Index fund is only up 14%.
AAII has some of the best financial advisers and the cost is very low. They have excellent guides and advice.
You may need a broker so go to e-Trade or Scottsdale who have low commission rates.
Do your own due diligence. Your own ideas are the best. Do not depend on someone else to select investments for you. Learn about investing so you don't have to ask what stocks to invest in.
Be self reliant.
Remember what Emerson said: A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.
Find stocks that have steadily rising net profits (earnings), low debt, and good P/Es, lots of cash, companies buying back their stock..
What interests you? Find stocks that pique your interest and passion.
You need fast growing good stocks with good earnings and in good sectors. You need to learn more about the stock market
before you even think about investing in it.
The stocks world is divided into 12 sectors such as energy which chevron belongs to. It is next to last in the sectors list today.
Technology is numero uno, but things can change in a new york minute, but within the sector, the fastest growing are computer services, not Microsoft. Then, Electronic Instruments and controls. Next is computer storage devices.
The next hot sector is Healthcare, but heed the warning below. Go here for sectors: (http://clearstation.etrade.com/cgi-bin/I…
The best software is Vector Vest if you can afford it. It has sector investing.
Here is a free Web site for charting stocks: (http://www.incrediblecharts.com/).
First of all, stay away from "professional brokers" and tips coming to you via e-mail or friends and acquaintances. And tips at Yahoo! Answers. And e-mail tips. Do your own due diligence - don't rely on someone else. Read Emerson's essay "Self Reliance.
Hey! They will say anything to get you to buy their junk. If it's too good to be true, it is.
Remember this, they are just sales people trying to sell you what their firm is pushing. They are not security analysts or financial planners, not even financial advisers. Trust me, I know from experience that they cannot be trusted especially with a million dollars. You risk losing it all. A million dollar account is known as a "whale" and they would love to get their greedy little paws on it and suck it dry. They just want to make commissions on what they buy and sell for the suckers, err...clients..
Risk avoidance is the name of the game.
Remember, the harder I work, the luckier I get.
are highly speculative. I would avoid the ones under a dollar a share. For example, Best Buy started at less than $5. So there are some good companies, but it takes a lot of digging to find the good ones. You are looking for companies with good earnings, little debt, low capitalization, and good P/Es. For stocks under $5, very few will meet these requirements.
Stay away from the pharms unless they have patented drugs - do not invest in generic pharms, no growth there.
Check out which business sectors are the most popular and invest in the companies in those sectors. The number one, two and three are: technology, health care, and cyclicals (retail). These change periodically so keep current.

Listen. You don't have to spend a lot of money on these books - most can be found at your library and those that your library doesn't have they can usually get from other libraries in your state.
Most of these books talk about stock and mutual fund investing, but for a good introduction to other forms of investing Gerald Appel has a great book called Opportunity Investing - How to Profit When Stock Advance, Stocks decline, Inflation Run Rampant, Prices fall, Oil Prices Hit the Roof and Every Time In Between.
First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman Not a book on investing, but it's a nice segue into the next book.
Now, Discover Your Strengths by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton

Another good book is: Opportunity Investing: How To Profit When Stocks Advance, Stocks Decline, Inflation Runs Rampant, Prices Fall, Oil Prices Hit the Roof, ... and Every Time in Between (Hardcover)
by Gerald Appel
Most mutual funds do not even keep up the the return on the S&P. That's like 99% of them.
Vanguard Index funds are a no brainer.
A CD is better than a savings account. They range from six months to several years. You cannot touch your money tho until the time limit is up.
Check out this Web site on Direct Investment Plans where you can buy shares directly from companies: (http://www.fool.com/School/DRIPs.htm).
Usually no fees and you can buy one share at a time.
Bonds are probably the safest. But they are not for the young. You might try a bond fund. They might return 5 or 6 percent. At 5% a million would return $50,000 a year - not a bad income. Remember, you have to pay taxes on the $50,000.
There are also municipal bonds
and the income from them is taxfree especially if you buy them in a state that offers them, but they only pay about 3%, but it's mostly taxfree.
Look into Fidelity sector funds. Buy the top three, then in six months look how they are doing and if not so hot, select the next three that are best. Do this for a few years and you will make lots of money.

P.S. This is a life-long learning process. Reading these books and applying the rules to analyzing stocks that may be good It takes time. Be patient and keep reading and listening. Don't be a sucker and follow someone elses advice. Be your own man or woman. Depend on no one except yourself. You can only get smarter and stronger that way.
P.P.S. Internet has lots of good stuff, for example (http://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?i…
Stockcharts.com is very good and their discussion of MACD is one of the best, barring its originator, Gerald Apple, but now we are getting into Technical Analysis and that is not for beginners. But it is an important factor in finding good stocks that are going up and growing. Remember, tiny acorns grow into mighty oaks.
When day trading stocks
how can I minimize or avoid unwanted capital gains taxes
If you have at least $25K on your brokerage account then you are classified as a pattern or full time trader and you can deduct trading commissions as regular business expense. That's the most you can do. You will always have to pay taxes whether you sell ice cream cones or trade stocks.
Also you pay less taxes if you hold stocks long term. The more time that passes the less the percentage. I don't remember the exact numbers right now but you could check on sec.gov . So traders basically pay more tax % than long term investors.

Sue Said:Why is the equity to asset ratio important when evaluating S&L/bank stocks?We Answered:It's best to explain the equity/assets ratio for banks this way...
Assume you are a bank and have no equity. That means you lend out monies you have borrowed from someone else (because you have no equity, you have no money of your own). If someone does not pay you back for your loans, you will not be able to meet your own loans - this means you close your doors. This is not safe for your other clients. This is why no banks have 100% debt.

Short term 1-5 years
Mid Term 6-14 years
Long term 15-30 years

When the Americans started to buy, Lenin directed Molotov and Rasputin to sell, fast and cheap. When all the Soviet stocks were dumped...

Jonathan Said:Should I report the inherited stocks sale to IRS?We Answered:You are required to report the stock sale. It is reported on schedule D which will also require the long form (1040)whether or not you itemize. You will be able to take the stepped-up basis, meaning that you take the starting value as of the date of death of the person you inherited the stock from. This will help to minimize the capital gains tax.
Good luck with this, hope I helped

Evelyn Said:Why should covered call options writers limit their selling to stocks with less volatility?We Answered:The theory, I suppose, is that stocks with higher volatility are more likely to reach the strike price and be called away.
I don't consider that a problem. I like getting the big premium that's available by selling options on high volatility stocks. I don't mind the thought of my stock being called away. One good strategy is to sell out-of-the-money calls (i.e., strike price above the price of the stock). That way, you not only get the call premium, but if the stock is called...

Renee Said:What is the next "big thing" for investing in tech stocks?We Answered:Of course, no one can know for sure what will be the next big thing, but I've been seeing some great profits in cellular phone stocks in the emerging markets: America Movil (AMX), TurkCell (TKC), SK Telecom (SKM), etc. You also might look into Research in Motion (RIMM), makers of the Blackberry device. A lot of people are talking about nanotechnology, but I think that's quite a few years from profitability, and by the time we reach that point, the companies operating today may no longer...
Mario Said:"Market Movers and Top 10 Stocks Question"?We Answered:It's generally not a good idea to invest in the market movers and the top ten stocks. Remember, with stocks you want to buy low and sell high. If a stock has made the top 10 list, it has run up in value. It may not yet be at its high, but it's probably closer to that than it is to its low.
If you want to get into a stock that is going to rise look around and see what is the latest "hot" thing that everybody seems to...
