When I see something that looks interesting, I don’t like to sit on the sidelines for too long. I prefer a more hands on approach that lets me get my hands dirty, no matter what the outcome happens to be. I wanted to become an investor in the stock market, so I set aside some money for my plans. Since I knew nothing about the market, I looked for tips on choosing the best AIM stocks, and learned that I would probably have a good return if I picked up some copper stocks.
Although the tips told me that the stocks would provide a nice return, I didn’t put too much hope on it. This was my first time in the market, and I didn’t expect to make a lot as beginner. There are people who have been dealing with the market for a long time, and they have more experience than I do with reading the market and knowing what kinds of stocks look like the best ones to invest in when the market is going a certain way. I hoped to be as good as the other investors at some time in the future, but I knew that it wouldn’t come without a lot of trial and error.
When I saw how well the stocks actually did, I was pleasantly surprised. Even for a beginner, I had done a pretty good job with my first investment. This gave me a lot of confidence and I was able to put more money into stock purchases. If I had failed with my first investment, I probably would have doubted myself and would have stayed away from making investments for a while, at least until I had a better game plan and some new stock ideas that would give me a different result.
