I just turned 22 and feel I am at that age where i should really be thinking of my future. Currently I am still studying at university and working part time.
Recently the Stock Market just perked my interest and I am looking to jump on board but really I don't know where to start or where to go about it. The thing is since I am new to well.. everything. I am looking for advice as to where I should start, what i should be looking out for.
I like the idea of penny stocks and the whole "pump and dump" mentality, with that said I guess with a small start of about 2k-3k.. what should I be doing? I don't want to start and loose everything in one go. There is no point jumping on shares that offer dividends with such a small capital is there? At this current stage I am just dumping everything I can into a uBank savings account but I am sure there is much more potential.
In terms of what I have done already... I just missed the board on the current ASX Stock Market game, will jump on the next one (5 July)...although right now I am on stockwatch.com.au one and giving that go. Also, I am working through the whole ASX Shares education A grabbed a book "A beginner's guide to Charting" to give me a better grasp of what I am looking at but can someone suggest additional material to read?
I am looking to make some money in the short term but also I see myself in the long haul also.
Where should I begin?
