I would suggest getting a free account at TD or any other broker and going through a few tutorial vids to get the start of it. Check out youtube for terms etc.
You will need an L2 to become a serious trader as well as real time streaming quotes for NYSE, Nasdaq, and OTC: PINK/QX/QB.
These all have tiers and standards as to their ranking on the markets.
Anything OTC is RISKY. I thik the only real company to do anything out of that set was True Religion jeans a long while back.
TD Ameritrade offers all of this for free as well as some tutorial material that will help you out a ton more then I can over the intraweb
Great thanks

Essentials of Investments by The McGraw-Hill/Irwin Series is a good start. It's a textbook, but very helpful with the terminology. Hope this helps.

Actually if the OP does get an Ameritrade account, he can type terms into the search window on the site and everything is explained quite well...

It looks like I can browse the site and search terms w/o an account. Not everything shows up with a definition most do

I just found this Glossary of Investment Terms - LOM - should be pretty helpful

Ok guys, I think I'm good to start now. I appreciate all the input! Feel free to post more but I think it's up to me now.

Good. If you have questions, you know where to post

Tyler has vanished from these forums, but he was always good with advice on hot picks.

I would recommend looking into KMP or Kinder Morgan Energy Partners which is a Master Limited Partnership or MLP. Basically meaning they are like a REIT(Real Estate Investment Trust) for pipelines. They are the biggest pipeline in the United States have growth in some Of the best properties in the USA. Also their MLP status means they distribute 90% of Cash Flow each quarter. If your time table is almost a decade I could see their distributation on each Unit not share because of MLP status, being in the 8.50 - $9.00 each year. Maybe higher if the environmental studies on the Canadian pipeline cums back in that timeframe.


Diversify your stock so always look to own more then one stock and choose different sectors. Ie tech, banking, maybe a income producing stock, another sector, then maybe one more risky stock like speculate in one stock to keep it interesting.

Also "Best time to buy is when their is Blood on the streets"

If your really into it look into options as well, another great way to make money on stock if you use them right. But you have to research them, call and put. Good luck
