My advice for beginning traders is to "not listen to the hype" about the quick profits to be made, and to plan on spending considerable time educating themselves about the markets.
A starting point would be books on technical analysis.
It's going to take time and effort. The worst thing in the world would be to become involved and make a whole lot of money real soon. Because then you think you’re smart. And if you get that impression, you’re going to lose everything as quickly as you made it.
Remember the "five-and-50" rule: Be prepared for to pay trading “tuition” that may include five years of learning with a cost of up to $50,000 to cover items such as education, office equipment, software and potential early losses. Some people get away with three and 30. The rare breeds will get away with two and 20.
This is not an easy game, and anybody who thinks it is will find out otherwise. Usually people stumble around for years before even finding a methodology that works, much less learn how to use it.
If you now feel intimidated, then you’re exceptionally smart. Otherwise, you’re going to lose a lot of money before you get good high-quality instructional materials.
There are a number of good people out there who can teach you about trading, but in the end, it's going to be up to you.
Start with small sums of money. When you open your account, your (initial) objective should not be to make money. Instead, your objective should be learning and training.
You should start off with insignificant amounts of money, so they're not focused on gains or losses but how to approach the game.
