I'm 18, I have a little cash I'd like to invest. (but seriously, not just GIC's). I'm seriously looking to learn how the stock market works, I'm starting commerce courses in January but thats for a marketing degree. I've checked around Morningstar.ca, but where should I start to learn how the market works.... Also, anyone have any stock tips, feel free to PM me, please . I was thinking after these disasters it would be good to invest in some lumber, or timbre area's but it's probably alittle late to jump on that bandwagon. Maybe solar/electrical energy would be a good place to start. But my goal here is to learn how the market works. The components involved, and how to take advantage of it.
