    I am not sure  I fully understand the question, but I would say the best thing is to educate yourself about the security you are looking at, find out what's happening in that particular sector.  And I think you should start paper trading/ Virtual trading  the stock for a short while.  and you definitely would need a charting software, hope that help.

    Do lots of research on a bunch of stocks that you might be interested in investing in!

    You will want to look at the historical prices of the stock, recent news, company projections...the stock market is tricky, risky, and stressful, but a good investment can make you tons of money!

    Do the research and maybe even hire a financial advisor!

    If it were me, I would start with ETF's. But that is me. This is a personal matter for you to discover.

    They say that buy and hold is over in these days of depression. So I guess that suggests that you must trade in and out of stocks. To me it means to be well diversified and you can change the weighting of your holdings according to the times we are in. So you can buy and hold...its how you weight your portfolio.
