Hi, I'm starting to get into this field more, and this important question came to me. How much time should I spend researching and learning the stock market and investing strategies before placing some money down or even finding a resource to invest with? I'm really new to investing and already plan on doing my homework first, but I was interested in hearing from more of a veteran how much time they actually put into this process before starting. I've already done some reading on this section of the forum, and some suggest reading about 5 books first, and others just one or two. Is that even enough? I plan to start small, but would really like to feel prepared before jumping into such a complex thing. Thanks for the tips!
