toba,

Money is almost never the limiting factor in learning to invest in stocks. Given that there's a half dozen brokers these days who offer free commish and the ability to buy in fractional shares, you could buy hundreds if you chose to, simultaneously or serially.

What's going to kill your account, though, isn't getting into those positions, but knowing when to get out. So focus on learning 'risk management' before you get yourself into trouble. Working your way some of the investing classics would be a good way to begin. For sure, you need to read Ben Graham's, The Intelligent Investor. But I add Wm O'Neil's stuff and that by Justin Mamis.
