If so, I was just wondering if there are any books or steps (classes, etc) you took or recommend to really learn it. And for what you recommend, what exactly do you do? (long term, short, daytrade, calls, sell high buy low, buy low sell high, etc)
I'm looking to get into doing daytrading a few hours a week and some safe long term.
I can easily google stock trading and stock books on amazon, but I like to hear from people actually doing it.
Also related, how do you monitor and decide when to buy/sell? For example if you have stock in yahoo, do you each day look out for news on yahoo, or are you also looking at news for internet industry, and the markets in general? It seems like so many layers of information one must keep track of to know if the company itself, the industry, or the stock market in general may cause the price to rise or drop and I wonder how people can keep up with that.
