I am looking for reputable guides and books on investing.  I am starting to have a bit more cash these days and I have people I know who have been doing very well in the stock market.  I know nothing of these and would really like to learn how to trade stocks, invest, bonds, derivatives, etc.  I was looking at books on Amazon but there are so many and I want to books that take into account what has happened during the recession and such for good measure.  Any suggestions?

An introductory book like _Stock Markets for Dummies_ is a good place to start.

Investors Business Daily (IBD) is a solid daily resource (and its complement, www.investors.com ). It's a better newspaper than the Wall Street Journal and it is built around a particular approach to trading. You could read _How to Make Money in Stocks_ by William O'Neil too--he's the founder of IBD.

Search your local library for other books on stock investing. Try to absorb as much knowledge and understanding as you can. Eventually, you should open a brokerage account and paper trade for a while--this is practice (not real money), which you should do extensively before you put any real money at risk.

I have read MANY books over the past 5 years. I have lived/traded/survived the bear market and the 2 years of "recovery". My key reading suggestions would be...

A market profile book/books (so you understand the 2 way auction that drives price). I have read both the below several times each.
http://astore.amazon.com/tr0101-20/detail/0470039094
http://astore.amazon.com/tr0101-20/detail/0934380538

Trade your way to financial freedom (so you get a great overview and a feel for how important laws of probability are).
http://astore.amazon.com/tr0101-20/detail/007147871X

Trading in the zone (so you drill in the importance of YOUR psychology and the role it has in profiting)
http://astore.amazon.com/tr0101-20/detail/0735201447

New market wizards is a fun read because it's all interviews with pro traders and you get a glimpse into how quirky most traders are. Some really funny stories in terms of the markets and trading IMO.

Hope these books help you as they helped me.

Dear reader,

In stock market, companies shares are available for buying & selling.
Those shares prices keep on going up & down.
A trader tries to buy them at low & sell at top to get profits.
But when this goes wrong, he looses money.

Buying & holding stocks for long time sounds more safe, but if there is any crash in market, you can again get losses.
To sum up with, its not a safe thing. It can earn & lose big.

One of the best books to start out with explains what kinds of investments suit you - stocks, bonds, and money markets - read Investing For Dummies as an excellent primer. After that you can go into other fields that you want - Stock Investing, Mutual Funds, and so on. You can easily find the book at your local library.

First of all you should learn how to start investing in the stock market is that you do not need a full time broker.With countless and low-cost services such as E trade and Scott trade, you can do all of the investing yourself. Next you should learn how to start investing in the stock market is using a budget.
