    Hello everyone.

    I dont know if this is the right forums to post this on so first of all let me say that im sorry if it is not. Im a freshmen in college, and am looking to stat investing. I took a econ class my senior year in hs and loved the stock market game we played. I came in first in the school with noone near to the amount of money i made. I know there A HUGE DIFFERENCE between "play" money and realy money.

    My question is i really enjoy the whole stock market idea and want to invest here soon with some real money. Im wanting o know where to start, what are some good books to read about active trading, and some good online resources. Sorry if this is the wrong forum again, but someone please point me in the right direction as im willing to learn.

  3. Keep your nose clean and your pants pulled up, and you'll do just fine.

    When you start playing with real money, keep your trade size small. After several months of successful trades, THEN increase the size of your trades. Most people blow out their first account because they bet too large.

    Good luck-
