investing in the stock market

Anyone here buy and sell stocks? How did you get started?

I am recently interested in it but I am also fairly ignorant of it all. I've bought some mutual funds in the past and did ok and but I'm interested in buying and selling realtime.

I've been looking at Etrade as a vehicle to invest but even the lingo there is above my head.

"covered calls, covered puts, spreads, etc?"

Can anyone recommend a good book to learn the ropes?

Do you homework if you are just starting out and don't invest anything you wouldn't be hurt completely losing! Don't have a book recommendation, but investopedia is good for terms that you might not know. You may also be interested in practicing with fake money at a site like updown.com until you get the hang of it and the lingo. And remember that each trade costs a fee so you need to cover that fee for it to be worth it.
Thanks from arcturus88, tecoyah and Polydectes

Say what? Now you are against a private sector corporation because Obama supports it (has he explicitly said that anyway?) I am sure he supports GE, GM, and a slew of other American companies too. You against them too?
