This is my first post, although I have been lurking around these forums for a few weeks. In the last 6 months I have become quite interested in share trading (for the longer term). While there is quite a deal of information available on this forum, amongst others - I wondered about the merits of several subscriptions that are available (e.g. fatprophets, Aspect Huntley, etc)?
My intended approach was to use one of these services to fine tune the shares that I should focus more attention on when doing my own research. So essentially using them as a scout. I gather everyone has their own approach - however does this sound like a fair approach to finding more prospects to potentially invest in?
Also, does anyone have recommendations on books / resources that teach the basics of charting and charting technique? The number of resources in my local bookstore is amazing so a few pointers would be appreciated.
