    Currently I have about 5-10k to play with, some money left over after selling a property.

    So far my foray into the share market has been premature and rather unsuccessful in the short term, but it's been interesting so far.

    Although working full time i'm setting a goal that I wish to be able to trade shares with an initial aim of being able to earn about $100pw trading share, through learning, experience, practice and patience.

    I guess is my above goal unrealistic or not, if not then I want to find the best resources to help me reach that goal, once I can reach that I want to then set the bar higher.

    I've been experimenting a bit with paper trading with bluechip stocks which has been interesting.

    I'm both interested in technical and fundamental analysis techniques as I feel based on my university studies both methods have their advantages and uses.

    Software wise i'm already setup with metastock and amibroker.

    Really would like to know where is the best place to start for no B.S info and guidance and for me to just forget what i've learnt and start like a total amateur.
    Hussla,
    This question has been answered and contributed so many times with lots of great information, I suggest you check out the Beginner Threads and do some searches.

    Education and Knowledge will be the first step - University studies is not enough

    Practice, test, find out what works for you - technical vs. fundamentals all are valid - depends on the eye of the beholder

    Then finally jump in small etc

    I wish you the best of luck

    I'm looking for a chart that was posted about 6 months ago by one of the experienced posters. It was a chart that showed the relationship between the share price movement and the different development stages of a mining company as it moved from explorer to producer. I've spent a bit of time looking but can't seem to find it, does it jog anyones memory. Thanks!

    What about learning from HomeTrader or doing Chris Tate or Louise Bedford courses.

    I to am new so far have been reading alot of books about candlestick charting etc and how to trade. psychology would be the most important factor. Don't get greedy and take a profit if you can.

    If you make $200 in 30mins work for a day that is good!

    Could anyone recommend Hometrader as a place to begin learning how to trade and setting up as a part time business.

    Also would you set up a Trading Trust if you were trading shares for income or would you set up a normal trust and have your Hold shares in there also.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Read books and then paper trade and back test
    before committing small amounts

    You need a solid understanding of the market and the instrument you are going to trade

    Hometrader - I can't comment as I have never used it - but usually spruikers material does not really help

    I am in no way affiliated to Nick Radge, but if I were a complete noob again I would have subscribed to his service and education - check it out.

    Plus there are lots of knowledgeable traders on this forum - so work hard and trawl through the threads

    Kind of annoying me that I keep having to rehash the same answer when it is only a few posts up

    Hello Tugga.

    I'm new to the game as well. I've come across a fantastic educational website I feel would assist you. It is called babypips.com

    Thank you Hangseng for your awesome advice. I will be following it almost by the letter. I find myself in a similar situation that prompted you to do a mindset change. You are a great inspiration to the rest of us starting out.

    You are too kind Sharkey.

    Please don't take it as advice, more as information to be shared and used as may be relevant to your individual circumstances.

    For what it is worth I am currently employing the best advice I ever read.
    "Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy". I am doing the former in blue now on a regular basis, I have done very well following that simple Buffet principle. I will tell you all in 2010 if I was right to do so.

    Best wishes to all for 2009.

    Can someone please point me in the right direction.
    I have looked at Pro Trader. It would be preferable to use something that I can readily obtain assistance for and ideally attend a user group. I live in Queensland, on the Sunshine Coast (and yes it has been unusually cold this winter!!!, but coming from Canberra, I would not dare complain!).
    I did do a search on other threads but could not find something which actually educates me on where to start. I am keen to get going!!!!!!!
    Have a look at "Market Analyst" its back testing / chart stimulation is great as you can enter a date in the past and then move forward one day at a time without seeing the future. What a difference it makes to your backtesting I reckon any backtesting done where you know/ can see the future is flawed!
    "Acofe" a local company teaches share trading basics.
    I think a mixture of class room study, books and forming a private trading group is the way to go.
    Cheers

    There are many traders not making it trading forex and trying to sell "their" indicators to the newbs.

    note , this is my updated view after blog perusal.

    Default New 2

    Hi Everyone

    I am new to the game also, have done the courses, lost money and am back at square one.....well not quite!!!!! I am back to the drawing board, following suggestions here and back to the reading, having a go at the asx game and doing dismally.... but then again I guess that is all part of the process. What I was wondering is if there is anyone out there in a similar situation who would be interested in in getting together on skype or whatever, swapping notes etc, (even a group of people). I am finding it very hard at the moment to keep motivated and 2 (or more )heads are better than one. If anyone is interested pm me please. TIA
