  • When I started this site, I thought of how I could present the information in a way that is manageable and easy for beginners to understand. There are many books and stock investing sites out there that are very good. However, from my experience, it can sometimes be very confusing for beginners if it is not presented in a systematic manner.

    At the same time I also wanted to include as broad a coverage as possible on the different markets and aspects of stock investing. What I have learned about investing is this...

    The more you know about the different aspects and areas connected to stock investing, the better you will be. A mastery of one area will help you in another area of investing. Why? Because the markets are all interconnected. Thus, I have decided to take an all round approach.

    The knowledge in this site will also enable you to invest or trade in any type of market. Whether you are interested in the stock market, options or forex this site will help you.

    How to get the most out of this site in the shortest time

    When you click on the navigation bar on the left, you will be brought to the page of one of the categories. On that page, you will see links to the articles in that categories.

    What I have done is, I have put the most important and essential articles at the above. These are the articles that you must read. They are like the pillars of a building. In order to know how the strategies in the Strategy Section works, you need to know these.

    Towards the bottom of the page, I have listed other articles on that category. After reading the essential articles at the top of the page, read these articles if you have time. You can move on to the next category, but if you want to know more about the area feel free to read those articles. They do contain some gold nuggets.

    How to go about this site

    For beginners

    If you are a beginner and are new to stock investing or trading, it is best to start by reading the Foundation, then the Basics, Intermediate and Advanced.

    Take your time. Do not rush to the strategy sections. You will need to arm yourself with enough knowledge before you start trading or investing. If you do not prepare well, you will get slaughtered.

    So take your time reading and learning before you put in your hard earned money into investing or trading.

    Those who have been investing or trading for some time

    For those who have been investing or trading for some time, I guess you would have already learn quite a lot. Feel free to browse and jump around the site. I hope you will find extra gold nuggets which will help you in your investing or trading.

    The Essential 80/20 Information you need

    To be honest, the subject of stock investing and trading is indeed very huge. To present all the information in a website or a single book is almost impossible.

    The good news is, you do not need to learn everything under the sun to start making money in stocks. Sometimes too much knowledge can be detrimental. You might end up getting analysis paralysis.

    Remember the 80/20 rule? This rule states that 80% of the results comes from 20% of the work. While 20% of the result comes from 80% of the work.

    So, what I have done is, I will give you the essential 80/20 information that you need to start profiting from the market. When I surf the net, I noticed that some sites have thousand and perhaps hundred of thousands of articles on stock investing and trading.

    Well, good to know as much as possible. But I like to keep things simple. I will only put in the essentials that you need.

    Please bear in mind that although I give you the essential 80/20 there is still a lot you might need to learn. As you go on your investing journey, you will learn new things each and every day.

    There will come a time when I will need to refer you to additional resources. These additional resources could be a website, a software, a book, a DVD or a course.

    These resources are important if you want to have a deeper knowledge and understanding about a certain area. I will point you to the right source.

    There are many materials and resources out there that are lousy. If you have been in this for some time, I'm sure you would have come across some companies selling lousy education and worthless materials for thousands of dollars.

    The resources I will introduce to you are some of the best out there. Some I have tried, and some are referred by other investors and traders. These resources are the ones that are really worth your money. So, you only get the best.
