where do they teach stock investment?
I’m a college student with a few thousand dollars in the bank. I realized that i really don’t want to keep working for super markets anymore. I want to be able to double my money and be smart with it. Instead of saving them dollar by dollar. So if you know, can you please tell me where i can learn to do stock trading? or other investment classes?
