There are several kinds of stock trading strategies, one of which is buy and hold. This refers to an investment approach in which the investor builds up a portfolio of stocks, bonds and mutual funds which are to be held for a long period of time, regardless of market fluctuations or loss of asset value. The underlying premise for this strategy to work is that the stock selections and portfolio composition are correct. However, if they are not, it could end up disastrous for the investor. In the last ten years, investors following this strategy lost about 40% to 60% of their asset values.
For those who are interested to research stocks on the Internet, these are several useful websites that provide basic financial information about the stock markets and individual stocks.

There are currently two main strategies for researching and forecasting the future growth trends of stocks - fundamental analysis and technical analysis. They are used to know how to buy stocks.
Many people tend to dabble in stocks without first deciding on a strategy for doing so. While some see the buying and selling of stocks as no different from going to the casino and leaving everything to chance, others easily succumb to their emotions and are influenced by the herd mentality. The latter phenomenon can become a financially costly exercise when you end up buying overvalued stocks or engage in panic selling.
