Online Stock Research

Bears make money, Bulls make money, but............ Pigs get slaughtered ... (Unknown)

With all the hype about online trading.... and the subsequent 'crash' in the tech sector, it is time to tread cautiously, take stock (pun intended) and perhaps consider some bargain hunting.

It is a fact that with a good "buy and hold" strategy, you could beat the averages over a period of time. Do you want to do that? Online research has come as a boon to the small investor, but at a cost. One needs to be able to cut through the clutter and look for best places where one can find good, reliable information. We have been sifting through the maze and bring you some of the best resources you could use.

Caveat Emptor.... and happy investing. One of the best one-stop sites for all the basic information on stocks and finance

Trading Online

Online trading can make you feel that you are control. However, always use caution. Some of the golden rules to remember are:

Use Market order with caution: Don't place "market orders on opening" These are overnight orders to buy or sell at the price prevailing when the market opens. They are unpredictable and often out of line with later prices.

Limit Orders: In volatile markets, setting your own price can prevent nasty surprises.

Lean on your broker. Brokers have a legal duty to get the best execution for customers. You can demand an audit trail to see prices around trade. Monitor limit orders with extra care.

Switch brokers: Look for ones that rout your limit orders to ECNs (Electronic communications networks), where buyers and sellers are matched automatically with no dealer spread.
