Steps

  1. 1
    Let's talk about trends
    .
    We'll do it one step at a time, little by little, how to analyze a company, how to look at its chart, how to find its trend, and how to draw trend lines. Let's go ahead and make it official. Let's talk about buying your first stock or buying whatever number of shares you've bought before. Let's talk about how to buy your stock.

    If you plan out your trades and keep a journal or a notebook and say what you're going to do
    .
    Say, you're going to buy at a certain level, the company is good, and other reasons why you're buying. You'll probably do better than those who just do it because they heard a good stock tip.

    Don't just rush to buy your first stock

    That's how you quantify the word - LOW

    If it's too far above, it does not mean it will come back

    Believer it or not, there's a fixed number of stocks
    .
    You can't just print stock as there's a fixed number. That's why price moves up and try another reason. Breakout is another spot to buy.

    I'm showing you the different ways to buy
    .
    Google is arguably a good stock with a competitive advantage that makes money. If you are a "buy low" trader you would buy where I've labeled all these green spots on the trendline. You would just buy hoping that it does not grow under it. If it does, then sell.

    If you are more aggressive, or you just can't wait to buy the house and share
