Hi ,

With respect Hamza , why is it your dream to work(trade) the stock market when you say you dont know anything about it? This is an important question to answer truthfully as most people say its the dream of just making money and the freedom etc. Please dont enter trading if you are chasing the money otherwise more times than not you will end up blowing your account(s).

Others have mentioned good starting point for you with regards to reading material. It is also important to understand your personality as that will dictate your style of trading. Once you have a good understanding it is also important to find yourself a mentor (someone who actual trades for a living)

I wish you all the best

I know your question is not for me so hope you dont mind me contributing :-

I be honest and say 99% of books out there are rubbish and two most important steps are :-

(1)Mindset -Humans are not wired to be successful traders so you may need to reprogram yourself (easier said than done)  - This will be a personal journey but I do like lot of material written by Brett Steenbarger

(2)Get yourself a 'successful', experienced and proven trading mentor

Even then there is no guarantee of success but above all do NOT take up trading to make money  instead to be successfull in executing  your edge (when you find it) and money will come to you

All the best

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
