Question: Good books on investing?Yahoo Answers
Anyone know of any Good books on investing in stocks for beginners? I've been trying to get some practice trading stocks on wallstreetsurvivor.com and I think it's helped some but mostly I've just realized that it's a bit more complicated than I originally thought. Anyways, thanks in advance for the help. -Rob
Your original question asks about "investing."
Then your explanation further says, "I've been trying to get some practice trading ..."
Which is it, trading or investing? They are two entirely different fields. The books offered here on "value investing" might be of little use to a trader.
You have to decide which before anyone can help you.
