The internet is full of free and good resources. We are lucky to be in a country where we can get lots of information we need easily online. Of course, there will always be complaints about the lack of freedom but I personally don't feel that freedom is lacking.
Anyway, the purpose of this blog post is to share useful information on investing in stocks in Singapore for beginners. Yes, you might have guessed it. I receive emails sporadically from readers regarding what to do in order to start trading in the Singapore stock market.

Which phone was that? Have tea with AK and find out: here.
As this information (and more) has been provided by the SIAS on their Q&A page, I would like to provide the link here in my blog for easy reference:
SIAS: A Beginner's Guide to Investing in Stocks.
Shan't duplicate the good work done by SIAS.
What? I am just being lazy?
OK, you saw through me. Bad AK! Bad AK!
However, I will add that before we take that step into the world of investing and trading in stocks, we should get ourselves educated in FA and/or TA first. There are lots of resources available out there and good books to help us too. To this end, have some "Food for Thought" found in my blog's right sidebar.
Also, make sure that we have our emergency fund in place and the necessary insurance coverage to help us to be financially secure first. You might want to read related post #4 by Solace, a regular guest blogger.
Happy reading and I hope you enjoy the experience.

"The book is obviously written with the beginner in mind. However, any seasoned stock market participant who is in the FA or TA camp would find this book a worthwhile read if he is willing to keep an open mind."
