Welcome to Fooldom Gary247. Well, I can only speak from my experience and I would have to say that the vast majority of these claims can be filtered out as junk marketing. I've done a lot of reading and investigating and I can tell you that I've followed the Motley Fool site for eight years and if you want to learn about investing the right way, then you've come to the right place.

No one can tell you accurately when exactly to buy and certainly to sell stocks. I think the Motley Fool newsletters get as close as possible though. More importantly, the community especially provides a tremendous opportunity to learn about how to make these decisions on your own and with the help of many others who have done research, as well.

My two cents would be to start with a couple of great books - Peter Lynch's "One Up On Wall Street" and then perhaps "The Millionaire Next Door". Then I would go over to the Fool School and read the 13 steps there or maybe do that first.

The curiosity you've already displayed by thinking about these things puts you way ahead of the vast majority of the public and the way to realizing financial independence.
