Stocks for beginners - what do I have to consider as a newcomer to the stock market?

What is actually important when trading stocks? Do I need a strategy and if so, which one?

The stock world often seems like a great mystery. Still, you shouldn't be afraid to invest your money. But you can only make a profit if you pay attention to a few important points!

The first thing to ask yourself is what the profits will be used for. Are you saving for retirement or for the next car that you plan to buy in a few months? This question is very important. As a rule, one does not make quick money with stocks, they are more for long-term investors. You should therefore plan at least five years, if not ten years, so that your capital can grow. During this time you should not need the money under any circumstances, it should only be "play money". Always keep in mind that you could suffer a total loss.
