    Believe me its not a tough game as portrayed by many its actually simple.

    It just needs you to learn a lot
    Have a model
    Understand the business
    and pick the stock

    If you are looking for becoming over night or over 2-3 year big returns you sure will be disappointed

    There are books as menioned by ramesh and there are sites like which helps…it just helps but you have to do

    You will make loss in some or all of it in beginning you should be ready to pay the tution fee to market.But make sure you learn from the mistakes

  5. What you asking is the subject matter of tons of books and years of experience. If any experienced value investor can give buy recommendations to this query I will be happy to follow it!

    The first step would be invest in mutual funds to understand the movement of the stock market and read about value investing: which is to pick a strong stock when it is undervalued.

    It takes practice with several mistakes to do it.
    If you are willing to pay a free try
    they have nice free resources and a game to play and learn

    Simple things to do:

    1. Read some of the recommended books like
    – The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham
    – Peter Lynch’s books.
    – Four Pillars of Investing by Bernstein
    – The only 3 questions that count – ken fisher.

    2. Understand these books. Read up even more stuff from blogs, internet forums, etc.

    3. Invest through some virtual money for 2-3 years.

    4. Then see, if you really want to do all that on a consistent basis for all of your money, and does it really benefit you, as compared to any alternative.
