After watching, reading and learning small snippets about the share market for a couple of years I am willing to dive in and give it a go. I really don't understand a lot of how the market works but am willing to learn as I go without over committing great amounts of money. Over time my plan is to get comfortable and get some confidence in what I am doing and hopefully make a good $ or 2.
What I would like to know is, What are some basic rules I may apply to my investing e.g. I don't buy if.... or I sell when..... or I wont buy this because..... or I prefer to buy when.....
I know everyone is different and their strategies can vary quite a bit.
I need to setup a few basic guides for myself so I dont get carried away, any help will be appreciated.
