Investing or trading stocks can be an intimidating thing especially for beginners.

While the idea of making a profit by merely clicking a few buttons is definitely alluring, but the idea losing money after clicking a few buttons can make even the most experienced traders think more than twice, let alone beginners.

What essentially makes investing different from gambling is the rigorous stock analysis that happens behind the scenes.

According to Investopedia:

Stock analysis is a term that refers to the evaluation of a particular trading instrument, an investment sector or the market as a whole. Stock analysts attempt to determine the future activity of an instrument, sector or market. There are two basic types of stock analysis: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. Fundamental analysis concentrates on data from sources including financial records, economic reports, company assets and market share. Technical analysis focuses on the study of past market action to predict future price movement.

As the definition suggests, there are two ways to analyse a stock. In simple terms, those who look at the historical price trends and movements to determine market entry, are using technical analysis. Those who look at the valuations of a company via its financials and assess general market sentiments are using fundamental analysis.

Regardless of whether you’re into fundamental or technical analysis, access to stock data is essential.

If you do a google of Singapore stocks analysis, you will likely get results of financial information portals like ShareInvestor, and research advisory like TheMotleyFool, a wide variety of blogs and forums.

We understand that time is of the essence, especially for investors and traders. So here’s the list to break down the top 5 sites for beginners to start their investing journey.
