At first I had no idea about how to invest in the stock market, so I read approximately 35 eBooks from Kindle on my MacBook Pro within the course of two months. I simply demolished through them, some books where great others where just a reread of what I read from other books. In order to make money in the stock market, you must have a strategic game plan and stick with it. I personally learned some simple stock patterns early on and can now see them at a glance when I look at individual stocks. I am not a financial advisor, but my personal opinion would be that the stock market is getting closer to a collapse and investors should diversify their portfolio to hold more cash on hand and wait for the blood bath to be over to jump back into the market when stock prices are cheap then sell for a big profit. This is just my opinion and not financial advice. I would recommend investors to invest in more tangible investments such as launching your own business, real estate investments, start blogging, become an affiliate marketer, do photography, or start another business while simultaneously running your other business. If you do not have at least 4 sources of income, you better start hunting.
