yes, i was like you. the first time i'm really don't about stock. till i buy some books. u can read nofie iman's book "Cara mengembangbiakan uang di masa sulit" to get more about IDX. I think invest in stocks is very exciting, buy the best stock u think then wait they grow up.

Nope, I don't invest in stock but my friend was. I prefer to choose to trade forex. Although I still learn in forex but I hope one day I can be a good trader. Like 2008 years, the IDX get the impact by the aboard investor pull their money out of Indonesia. One day I will try to invest in IDX, but when the price is very low again like 2008. But in honestly says that I won't hope that IDX will crash again and make Indonesia economy under pressure. I hope IDX will give the best for this country from the good company stock that will make confident for aboard investor to invest in our love country. Keep post, happy myLoting.

Hahaaha... that right, when the market fall, that is the best time to come in. I have tried to learn about forex, but don't know why it doesn't make sense for me. In Stocks, i feel safe and comportable. coz, we can choose what we want to be investor or trader. when i buy stocks, i can leave it, and check it back later after 1 month maybe. I think, in forex u must always watch the monitor along day (sorry, i dont really know about forex trading, corret please!).

You right that playing in forex, I need to watch the monitor frequently, I usually choose to watch my monitor every one hour and sometimes I miss the chance to open the position. So it little harder than stock. Stock is the way that you said, you can buy now and sell it a month later or maybe 10 years later.

yes, u can be online trader or offline trader. The first u ust to do is open an account in securitas company. If u are university student, u need Rp 3.000.000 (Ipot or e-trading security) or Rp 5.000.000 (Reliance Security) to open an account. Then u can start trading. you can getmore information in idx official webstite. Thx.
