Hey expert gurus and veterans in sajhas. I am pretty new to this site and was very happy to discover this thread. I am currently in student visa f1. I want to learn to invest money in stocks and want to start with little money. 


I was wondering could you buy stock when you are in student visa?


And my second question is where and how could I get started on this one? Are there any particular sites? I basically don’t know anything about stock investment and  so eager to know about this.


Appreciate your time.

Yes you can invest as f1. Familiarize yourself with the stock jargons. Www.Investopedia.com can be of great use to get started.
Here you can learn the basics. Meanwhile, there's this website called www.smartstocks.com, which gives you a virtual million dollar which you can invest on the realtime stocks of your choice, when you create am accout. This is a very good way to learn without losing your money.

Paul Mladjenovic. This book will simplify the basics so that you will get the concept easily. Visit yahoo finance, business insider and other business journals and try to understand what they are talking about when they talk about stocks ,bonds, intrest rates, economy, unemployment rates etc etc.

Nobody can fully understand and predict the movement of stocks..all you are doing is guessing it right with some facts that u have at your disposal. So just get started on it.. U will know what u need to learn.

If you're asking which stock to invest in these forums, you should stay away from market. Never invest in someone else's idea.. Do your own DD.

As far as investing while a student, Im sure that is allowed as you are in legal status.

For learning about stocks I would keep half in simple/boring investments... and other half you can gamble..

-Simple: Invest in SPY and learn about basics of investment from yahoo finance or read books.. and follow people like Warren Buffett, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Peter Schiff, Doug Kass, George Soros etc etc
-Gamble: People like Jim Cramer or buy whatever you feel like.

If you want to create a brokerage account, one good broker is TradeKing, I have my account there also..Open TradeKing account. or goto tradeking.com

Why are people investing in risky single company stocks? Why not ride the wave and invest on a stock portfolio instead?

Buy and Read "How to Make Money in Stocks", and do some extensive research. Sites like money.cnn.com and finance.yahoo.com will help you enhance your knowledge, and also give you an insight to current market.

 Thank you so much everyone for contributing your knowledge about it. I am getting started by learning it in different sites that you guys have provided. I wouldn't start right away but try my best to learn all these things before I put my money down.

All those sites were kind of helpful as you learn different things is each sites. 

I believe not only me but there are hundreds of people in sajhas who were curious about this as we lack proper information until and unless we get in touch with it.

Appreciate all the information you guys have put down.

Just know one main mantra: DIVERSIFY DIVERSIFY DIVERSIFY.

You don't want a single-company portfolio, because it may seriously impact your return; not to mention it is extremely risky.

Best thing to do is meet with a financial adviser and get more information on it.
