Read some good books on the market, such as O'Neil's book on CANSLIM, "How to Make Money in Stocks", and some decent books on technical analysis, sich as Achelis "Technical Analysis form A to Z".

The official word from the Fools is that Technical Analysis is Voodoo, but their trading record indicates that a knowledge of technical analysis would have helped their performance. Nobody who practices TA would have watched a stock double and then fall back - finally they sold it for a loss. Really stupid, of course.


I ordered "Technical Analysis from A to Z" and will try the websites.
