    I would like to invest my savings in the stock market. But, the crux of the matter is that I don't know a single thing about stock market trends. This lack of knowledge doesn't supress my desire to try this fascinating world. Somebody please help me out as I don't to how to start.

    Welcome. A very similar question was asked a few days ago. Perhaps the answers in the message thread http://www.bullmarketboard.com/threads/6537-How-to-Start may help.

    A good reference source for looking up terms new to you is http://investopedia.com/ akin to Wikipedia.
    .
    And last September I started a message thread about how does one follow news in the market. See http://www.bullmarketboard.com/threads/5967-How-do-you-follow-the-latest-news-on-the-markets wherein there are some sources that you can begin to pick through.

    Hope this helps. Your mileage may vary. As you formulate questions, do ask.

    Yes, the other "How to start" thread will give you some great info and tips. However, if nothing else, please remember that you can't "invest in the stock market". Instead you use the stock market to invest in listed companies.

    So, the biggest tip from me is to remember that by buying shares in a company (via the stock market) that you are actually investing in a business. It makes sense then that you should treat every stock purchase decision as if you were buying the business outright. That is, even though you are buying a very small share of the business, you definitely want that business to be successful - so, it should be the best business in the sector/industry, with a large moat (protection from competitors), and with a history of outstanding performance. Thus, doing your due diligence on the business you're buying a part of is key.

    Good luck.

    Maybe I am in the negative today so I'd say sorry for this comment. For ignorants like me, I had received an advice from my nephew who used to be a stock broker that you should be careful with your money. It is not wise to invest in stocks if you don't know the ins and outs. That is why there are stock brokers who could help you in that aspect. Although I have a significant stocks of a blue chip company, I still prefer to play it safe with my money and just deposit it in the bank for future use. Time deposit interest is quite low but safe enough.

    Almost every investor look for investment advice regularly, they want to improve their profit by taking expert's tips and suggestions. But the point to be noted here is that looking investment advice by someone maybe from a financial advisor or an experienced trader is a good option but their pieces of advice should be capable to increase your profit.

    Personally I think there is nothing wrong in taking advice off the experts but you need to understand what they are telling you. Investing blind is very dangerous!

    That's really true, blind trust on stock tips provider is not totally good first, you have to analyse what they are providing and how much it is useful for your investment. Selecting a SEBI registered investment advisor for taking financial help is beneficial and safe for an investor.
