You can learn about the stock market in many ways. But most people cannot afford to learn the wrong wayby making expensive mistakes. The stock market is a way for anyone to own the valuable assets of a company and, as investments, stocks historically have offered a good chance for long-term gains. If you own a well-diversified portfolio of individual stocks or stock funds, your wealth tends to grow when the economy grows. But too many investors succumb to the high-risk pursuit of beating the market by trying to pick winners, predict price trends, or otherwise find opportunities that other investors have missed.
Today, millions of people in all walks of life are invested in the stock market through brokerage accounts and retirement plans such as IRAs and 401(k)s. What to buy and when to sell stocks are up to each investor, who often feels besieged by conflicting advice. The wisest approach is to understand exactly what the stock market is and how it works,
appreciating such basic facts as these:

Factors of success: Many people focus on increasing their rate of return on stocks, which is hard to do without taking substantial risks. Its much safer to focus on two other factors that affect how much money you earn.
No free lunch: You cant make much money in the stock market if you miss the handful of best trading days of each year, which are unpredictable. But if you stay invested so that you enjoy the good days, youll experience some horrible days toobecause theres no free lunch.
Above all, diversify: Diversification is the closest thing to a free lunch in investing. Just holding three different stocks instead of one decreases portfolio variation by about 40 on average. Thats a significant reduction in risk that doesnt cost anything in terms of expected returns.
