Publisher's Summary

Are you a beginner who is looking to open a self-directing stock investing account for the first time? If so, that means Stock Market Investing for Beginners is the book you are looking for!

Running your own self-directed investing account can be exciting and empowering. 

But do you really know the ins and outs of the stock market? 

If you don’t really know what’s going on, you can end up losing a lot of money. 

But if you prepare ahead of time and do things right, then you can have a long and successful investing career. 

The good news is we're here to give you the exact information that you need to know!

First, we’ll start out by explaining the basics of stocks. We’ll tell you what parameters and metrics you need to keep an eye on to determine which stocks are a good buy and which ones aren’t. 

From there, we’ll investigate different stock portfolios, and show you how to allocate your assets for different investment goals. 

Are you looking to make aggressive gains? We’ll explain how to do it. 

Are you a value investor looking for safer, more stable investments? We’ve got you covered there, too. Are you looking for income investments? We’ll explain dividends, bonds, and even how to write covered call options.

There has never been a better time to take control of your own stock investments. Commission fees are dropping like a rock, and there are opportunities everywhere, from apps to online brokerages that make trading easy. 

In this book, we’ll cover:

  • What stocks are and the history of investments.
  • How to find a brokerage.
  • Investing in stocks and meanings of different fundamentals like PE Ratio.
  • Day trading and swing trading, for the more ambitious.

Very good introduction to investing

The information in the book was very good at explaining the different options for investing. It is informative and well explained. The examples are described using American links but if you understand their comparitoves it is easy to follow.

Good book for beginners

It was a really thorough overview for beginners to understand the stock market. I thought it was at the right level for someone who doesn’t know anything about the American Stock Market.

bird's eye view of stocks 101

I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. for me this book did nothing but cover a very high-level overview of the possibilities of investing and definitions. all of the information gained in this book can be learn for free at investopedia. add audible not provided a free credit I would be far more upset with this book than I am. even though it was free it is not what I was expecting. I had hope we would have covered more details regarding veins like buy and sell signals.

Great book!

I was skeptical of this book at first because I could not find any reviews outside of audible and there were only 5 star reviews on audible. I understand why it only has 5 star reviews after listening to the book. It was great! Very easy for a complete beginner to understand. Now I have a good knowledge of the basics

This audio book was spectacular! It was so easy to listen and comprehensive. The nature of the topic is complex but author made it enjoyable. I’m buying all of his other audio books and opening my investment account this week.
