The Most Useful and Important Thing to Do Before Tradingby Mark Louie
Researching is the most useful and important thing to do when trading in anything. Pay attention to market trends. The best way to beat the market is to know the market. Great research is the key to consistent success in the market. Outside sources like your broker, news, TV etc. are great sources of information, but it all comes down to you. Your own personal information is more valuable than any other resource.
