im getting intersted in business and wanting to do more in stocks. Could someone explain how to buy stocks and sell stocks.
Zyzz's quotes:

When asked about death:
"Everybody, one day will die, and be forgetton. Act and behave in a way that will make life interesting and fun, **** a mundane predictable life working monday to friday with something you derive no pleasure from; just living life out till you grow old and wither away. Find a passion, form relationships, dont be afraid to get out there and **** what everyone else thinks, trust me its alot more fun that way.

Dont ever pay people out or put people down. Instead just put yourself up and let the haters do their thing. Id rather be a person thats hated on, than a person that does the hating. A wise man one said...

Haters gonna hate!"

I do the day trading from time to time and have made about 20% return in last six years or so. With anything it's a gamble when I started I had 5k and lost 4500 in less than a year. With my last 500 I purchased Siri stock at 0.25 a share and sold it a year later at 3.25 a share. Honestly I have tried multiple online brokers and so far I like scottrade the most. Pm if you want more information

Find a good broker like Ameritrade or Fidelity. Read up about stock trading, and start investing money, at least 1-5 thousand.

Tdameritrade works well for me. It's pretty simple to use and you get some cool research stuff to use.

To start off with I'd buy stock in a reputable company that pays a reasonable dividend like GE or something. It should be relatively hard to lose money unless you buy something weird or the economy tanks.

On a side note, I like to buy at least in increments of $500, that minimizes the percentage of money lost to fees.

I agree with TDAmeritrade and Fidelity. Both are great in customer service.
Google your question instead of asking here, there is so much to learn before you should invest even a dollar that we couldn't type it out here.

There are web sites out there that let you play with virtual money, many times on their own real money platform. You might try using those first.

Invest fake/play money, see returns < 20%

Invest real hard earned money, lose it all.

TDAmeritrade has been nothing but quality so far, ToS is a savings grace. Fib. charts for days.

...they also have the best mobile applications for tablets and phones.

Not everything is a gamble. Also doesnt have to be play money. Set aside money for bills, food, and hobbies. Next make an account that would cover everything for 3-6 months if you had a medical problem/ accident/lost your job. Then start an investment acct. And start contributimg what you can afford monthly. Anything is better than nothing.

THEN... you can start purchasing mutual funds/ETF, Stock, bonds, and life insurance.

build a portfolio that has diversity. Low fees & low volatility.
