Here are the 2 recommendations:
Re: Investing info
I would recommend:
Jason Kelly - The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing, Jason Kelly is the author of nine books including "The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing." Available on Amazon.com
Also, recommending Robert Lichello - How to Make $1 Million in the Stock Market Automatically. Available on Amazon.com
Moreover, recommending Praveen Puri - 1) Stock Trading Riches, and 2) Constant Value Investing. Available on Amazon.com
Lichello and Puri are worth reading because they explain how to automatically buy low and sell high, removing the human tendency to trade emotionally.
These books would make for an excellent start, whether you invest in individual stocks or ETFs.
Re: Strategy for transcations in Mutual Funds..Pls Help!
You may want to consider the AIM trading system (automatic investment management) developed by Rbt. Lichello back in the 70's.
Another system is the Simple Trading System, by Praveen Puri based on Constant Value Investing, which is similar to the above.
Both systems are discussed in detail at different web sites. As well you can purchase
books on ebay and amazon. Lichello book is How to make $100000 automatically. Praveen Puri book is Simple Trading System
Hope this helps you
