We've all been there (at least I am) which is to say that you never stop learning.

Try to decide how much capital you can comfortably afford to lose
Decide how much time you can or want to devote to trading
Explore the various sorts of securities you might like to trade and the risks associated with them
Decide on your trading timescale - for how long would you want to hold a position and why

Do lots of searches on this site

Do lots of searches on Google


Read some books - a lot can be bought second hand
If you only buy/read three books let them be :

Reminiscence of a Stock operator -Edwin Le Fevre - available foc for download from the net

Market Wizrds - Jack D Schwager

John J Murphy - Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets

Come back again with any questions however stupid they may seem as they occur to you

Do not be phased by some of the egos you meet on these boards - as your knowledge increases you will begin to sort out the wheat from the chaff

Best of Luck

Zow,
I've probably been around a lot longer than you think
I was working on hourly rates for a T-boy based on your charges

It's not the years, it's the mileage........

I'm no spring-chicken either but shall defer to your 'Legendary Member' status....... I can but dream of the time when I may perhaps join you in the upper eschelons of legendaryness.

I missed that thread about newbies not contributing but isn't it just a little lazy to ask such a wide ranging, general question as 'where do I start?' even for the 'First Steps' section.

But, I repeat, i was in no way being sarcastic or 'flaming' the original questioner. Just trying to find a different way of saying what has been said many a time.
