welcome .. before getting in technical and related stuff decide what ur exactly intended ..
1) Buy good stocks and hold for years - Investor
2) Buy any instrument ( stocks / futures etc ) and sell same day (day trader ) and hold for few days and sell( swing trader )
in the second case you must know what is mean by money management.
as new comers find out monthly how much u can loose so that it will not give any impact to you. some thing like money spent on cinema / drinking etc per month . and never bring more more for that month .All the best
Learning that the simplest of strategies work the best is the hardest to learn. You can read basics of technical analysis. The basic knowledge will help understand that technical indicators are not the best for trading LOL!
Please read decision point trading (niftynirvana) once you have learnt the basics.
The more money you have the less efforts you need to make to turn them into even more money. Recall that Buffett hated tech stocks because "he doesn't understand their business". Clearly it was wrong decision. Somewhere along the line he realised his mistake, increasing his stake in Apple. Judging from this perspective he definitely missed good part of the tech rally in 2000-2010.
