most people require a minimum investment of 1k, so you'd have to do it via a broker.

It's risky, unless you keep up with what's happening, you could get hurt by any major downturn, because you'd be one of the last to sell.

Be careful if you're really thinking about gambling in the stock market...lots of good critical thinkers expect the markets to crash in the short to medium term. Of course, lots of people also expect the markets to keep going up--this is why it's important for you to be careful and learn enough to make smart decisions for yourself!

bogger makes an excellent point; the stock markets are ruled by big investors who know how to play the game at the expense of the little guys...which would be you! So only put money into the market if you don't mind losing it.

Good luck,

Well if its your first time and you have neither experience neither knowledge of working of Stock exchange, you are going to loose your money. Even if you invest millions and become a biggest invester of the day, your investment is still insecure gamblers never let other live with peace.

The stock market is a wonderful place to invest money. You make it sound like you're gambling. I would say, only go to a casino and gamble your money if you don't mind losing it. If you invest wisely and buy stocks in companies with values and competent CEOs and a good business model, your money is quite safe. The market always has ups and downs, but they key to always coming out on top is to keep track of your investments and plan on holding onto them for the long term. Day trading is much more like gambling than truly investing. Smart investing will always yield returns in the long term
