Again and again, we urge people who want to be serious about stocks trading to study, study, study. Come up with your own personal trading plan, come up with your own style, your own screener, your own buy and sell rules. This is not being selfish, this is about being responsible and mature. There is a proper venue to learn, to be taught (in seminars, webinars, etc). There is a time to research and read up on your own. There are better ways to spend your time rather than posting questions in groups and reading the varied reactions (either helpful or hateful).

Ask Geri: True Cost of Borrowing (Part 2): Diminishing Balance Amortization
