This is a list of resources I personally use and recommend or that I think that some of my readers might get value from. I will add to this page whenever I come across useful things that might be helpful in making you a better stock investor.
1) TD Ameritrade – It is the broker I use for the portfolio associated with this website. I have used them since 201f3 and have been very happy with the platform and customer service (the couple of times I needed it). TD Ameritrade always scores highly in Barron’s annual rankings of online discount brokers and came in 3rd place in 2017. Trading fees are $6.95 fees for stock trades plus no minimums to open an account which makes this great for any investor of all experience level.
2) eToro boasts over 5,000,000 investors from 170 different countries. I get lots of questions about what broker to use if you don’t live in The United States. I don’t personally have any experience with eToro but it might be an option worth checking out as it is meant for international investors.
3) Wall Street Survivor – Are you new to stock investing and find it confusing? Do you wonder what it is like to buy and sell stocks online? Wall Street Survivor is the place to get started with one of the leading stock market simulators (free to sign up and use) where you can trade $100,000 in virtual currency just like you would with real money at a real online broker. Additionally, there are are dozens of courses and videos (for a fee) that will concisely answer many of your questions about the stock market and help demystify the process of investing.
4) Yahoo Finance – This is where I get all my stock quotes and information about the stocks I own. Each companies stock quote is followed by the most recent news stories where you can keep up to date about the latest news. Charts and other information are all available for free, making Yahoo Finance the place on the Web were I spend the most time researching anything and everything about the companies I own and may want to buy.
