Some things to consider - are you looking to trade or invest? Sounds silly but that can mean two very different things. Your risk tolerance also needs to be considered. Lastly, do you have the time and energy to put in the work to make your own decisions or are you looking to put your trust into someone else to do that for you? Check out sites like The Motley Fool or Investopedia for more information on a variety of related topics.
It depends on your investment strategy. Are you looking to invest for the long term or trade stocks. Investing for the long term I would recommend mutual funds. Use Vanguard, they offer no-load mutual funds, look into some of their index funds - can't go wrong with that. If you wish to learn how to trade stocks, I suggest Online Trading Academy.
