    the stock market is a lifetime learning thing..
    when I started, I had no experience and KNEW NOTHING.. I now run my own portfolio and I know what Im doing but that took about two years 🙂

  2. Whether you are trading the USA, Indian or any other stock market you have to learn how to read what price is doing and to learn to read the charts. The charts will tell you what everyone in the market is doing and what they are thinking. You learn to do that, you will know how to invest and trade. I think the greatest resource is Youtube, there are so many tutorials it will keep you busy for a long time.



  3. As a beginner in the stock market, one of the first investing concepts I learned about was the price earnings ratio or simply P/E.
    This ratio is simply a measure of how many multiples of a company’s earnings you are paying for it’s shares.
    This is useful because it provides a standard measure which we can use to compare the value of two or more companies.
    Using share price alone to compare various stocks is meaningless (I’ll explain why a little later) – we need a way of comparing apples with apples.
    Price earnings ratios provide this mechanism.

    All other things being equal, a stock with a lower PE ratio would provide better value than one with a higher PE.
    How To Calculate Price Earnings Ratio…………………….
    The price to earnings formula is as follows:—————-

    Price To Earnings Ratio = Company Share Price / Earnings Per Share
