Stock Market for beginners basics:
Here we will outline some of the basics to help you get started and answer the age old question. How does the Stock Market Work?
Ideally to get started you will need a computer with ADSL internet connection or better.
You will need to find a broker (listed on the right under brokers) and set up an account with them.
Once you have found your chosen method of trading you will need to make a set of rules and follow them; no matter what.
To start trading you will need to find at least a $2000 budget. You are best saving this rather than borrowing.
You will need to be able to find stocks that are worth placing a trade on. This is the hardest part in stock market trading. Initially to help you find stocks that are worth trading we recommend you hang around some good stock market forums or chat rooms. Eventually you will pick out the people who really know how to trade the stock market. The other way to find stocks to trade is by subscribing to a good stock market newsletter. The newsletters and forums are listed in the right hand column.
Before you start, and to get a feel of stock market trading we recommend you paper trade. This is the practice of writing down dummy trades and seeing how they go until you are confident enough to place your first trade.
You will also need to decide whether you want to trade real stocks or CFD'S. These are explained under CFD on the right hand side.
You can make a great career trading the stock market.
We wish you all the best of luck,

Tips For Finding Stock Picks-using a 12 month rolling high strategy
1)Using the daily 12 month rolling high is a great way to pick out stocks that might be worth dropping some money into. We have found that 7 or 8 times out of 10 if you buy into a stock that has just reached a 12 month high it goes up in value. It may have reached this new high because of investor sentiment and positive buying of the stock with good forward momentum. It may have just been a flurry of good news or director and institutional buying. Whatever the reason it is still a great way to find stocks to research further. So put them on your watch lists.
