I'm pretty new to the stock market, and really overwhelmed by the amount of information and conflicting ideas about investing. How did you get started learning about stocks and investments? My mother in law is in a stock club where they meet monthly to discuss their investments, is something like this a good way to get started? Where would I even go about finding such a group in my town? Are there other resources I should check first before I spend too much? I am really excited to start buying stocks with some of the money I saved in the past year, but I don't want to jump in before I know what I'm doing.
