Im just finishing up highschool this semester and and going into business at university next year. I'm really interested in spending this "free" semester i have on investing in some stocks but the problem is I have no idea how to get started. Which websites are good to check out, how do i "buy" and " sell"... anyone care to help this youngster make some coin? hahaha thanks guys.

save your money. stocks dont pay off, look at martha stewart. you are better off investing your money in other ways. i lost more money on the BS stock market.

E-trade is ok, i would recomend Ameritrade(datek) over E-trade if u wanna get serious about investing, E trade charges to much for limit orders which is all the serious investor well use.
Some good books to get you started, any book on jessie livermore...Im not sure what the name of the one i read was, but thats a great book. By far the best book i have read is Profitable Cadlestick Trading by stephen W. Bigalow. If u really wanna get serious about investing and get into the market I have all kinds of info bro..
PM me and i can get u started on a good path..
oh and tell me weather
Are u trying to day trade(not for newbies), swing trade(what i would recomend) or go long.
Are you gonna to be using techs. or fundamentals.
