Good Afternoon,

I am interested in learning how to invest in the shares and stock market. I am a complete beginner but would like to build my knowledge before I invest. Where is the best place to begin acquiring knowledge in order for me to become a successful trader in the future.

Thank you for your time,

Tom

@tomcagsey,

Your first sentence states how you want to learn to 'invest' in the shares and stock market. You second sentence states you want to build your knowledge before you 'invest'. By the time you get to your third sentence you are stating you wish to acquire knowledge to become a successful 'trader'

First of all, investing and trading are different. For me investing is more about long term wealth creation whether that be for capital growth or for income. Trading for me would be a shorter time period and more speculative in nature betting on price movements in a certain direction. 

What you ask is a very simple question but very difficult to answer. If successful investing and trading was just about acquiring knowledge then there would be a lot of people who could merely acquire and retain knowledge and become profitable traders but it does not work like that. 

It is all about how much time, effort, dedication, discipline and capital (money) you want to put into this. 

There will be plenty of material on the Internet which you can read. There will be plenty of books you can read. Reading will be a good starting point. Acquiring knowledge is only the first step and no one can do this for you. You must read and learn yourself first.

You are not a guest member so therefore one would assume that you have an account with IG and must use them to either invest or trade. You may like to begin with material on IG's website first which could be as good a starting point as any. I would not suggest you invest or trade until you really are ready and only you will decide when this is. 

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to this. My mistake, i am interested in investing only. Creating long term wealth with  the aim of possibly retiring a few years early. I have created an account with IG to allow me to start investing once I am ready. I will start with the material on IG in the first instance on go on from there.

When you are looking at possible stocks/shares to invest in, which area of research do you focus mostly on?

Thank you

Thank you so much for your response. I really appreciate your time. I was away over Christmas, hence my delayed response. 

Your advice has given me a lot to think about and digest. Once I have begun my journey, I am sure I will have plenty more questions.

Thank you again.

Happy New Year!!!

    • ARTFI's mission to make high-value art accessible through fractional ownership and NFTs is a fascinating concept. Let's explore other projects breaking down barriers in the art world and bringing ownership to the masses. ARTFI offers some unique features beyond just fractionalization: Focus on Blue-Chip Art, their concentration on established artists attracts high-net-worth collectors and increases investment potential. Industry Endorsements, supports from prominent figures adds credibility to the platform. So, is ARTFI your one-stop shop for owning a piece of an iconic painting because they are listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not. There are other options, and the art market itself is evolving alongside NFTs. What do you think? Is ARTFI a revolutionary force in art ownership, or just a trendy gimmick? Have you explored any other fractional ownership or art-related NFT projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
    • Mystiko Network like competitors like Omni are promoting interoperability and scalability in the crypto landscape. However, Mystiko is standing out with seamless compatibility with various L1 and L2 blockchains which they have extended to cross-chain bridges, wallets, DEXs, and other dApps. By eliminating blockchain barriers, Mystiko Network allows users to transfer assets and interact with various dApps more easily. This focus on interoperability goes hand-in-hand with scalability. Plus, their ZK SDK allows developers to build secure and private dApps while reducing costs and simplifying cross-chain transactions. It has successfully raised $29.25 million and have forge backing from industry giants like Samsung Next, Coinlist, Hashkey Capital etc... emphasizes it potential and gives it a firm foothold in the interoperability niche. Mystiko is about to hit another milestone as their token XZK is about to be listed on a Tier1 CEX like Bitget further exposing it to investors! Overall, they are ticking the right boxes and I believe they are a project to watch!
