1st post here, havnt had time to do much reading around so take it easy !!
I currently run my own building company and although successful ive always wondered about the stock market /share trading etc .
ive brought a few books, don't know how good good or not :
getting started in shares for dummies
stock market wizards - jack d schwager
learn more about shares - n.e. renton
starting to read the financials in paper, watch on foxtel the reports, get on to asx /commsec sites and do the courses and looking online to find share courses to gain a better understanding.
not really looking at this as a "new job" or to make a career in financial advising as such more a hobby and if I get good at it and it morphs into something bigger then one day maybe make a living for myself and my family from it maybe wishful thinking , im definitely very interested at the moment though.
id love to hear from anyone with any good advice as to what books to read , what courses to do , and any other useful information as to what I should be doing to maximise my learning
