First time poster, long time reader. I have been wanting to start trading for some time now, though cannot bring myself to begin, mainly because I cant justify my knowledge base broad enough to be successful... yet.
Im recently graduated with a finance degree which I find be be next to useless, and am working in an accounting role which is killing me. I need some excitement in a more finance driven environment. I have a love for the markets and have thus turned to trading.
Ive done my research and have read several books including Reminiscences of a Stock Operator and Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets by Murphy. My difficulty comes in the inability to apply this knowledge to real time. I have very little knowledge of software aplpications or how they work. I understand charts but have little knowldge of where to gain the greatest access to them. How do you go about picking which stocks to analyse?
These are my broad issues. I would appreciate any help in getting started, maybe applications that provide a platform to practice on or something along these line. Im itching to get started but cannot justify it right now before i know i can and will succeed.
