I've always had an interest in the stock market and investing but have only given it a small amount of attention. I was recently trying to come up with ideas for a hobby and realized that (a) investing is something I have had a long standing interest in and (b) it's something that people can do as a hobby! What are some resources/guides/books for learning as much as possible about this? [more inside]

Are there any online fantasy stock market simulations that let you invest in international stocks? Or, if not, Asian stocks? I currently use Vritual Stock Exchange, which is limited to NYSE stocks.

Can anyone recommend an online discount brokerage that can execute trades internationally? All the online brokerages I've looked at that do international trades at all do them over the phone and charge a lot for these trades.

I was wondering if now would be a good time to buy stock in, say, a bank. The theory being buy low and then some years from now, it would be high. I'm talking maybe $1000, such that if I lost it all, while I wouldn't be very happy about it, but it wouldn't break me. I realize you are not a lawyer, or financial analyst, or whatever. I'm looking for any opinion, for or against.

Is there anyone (especially online) who's collected reasonably well-informed stock picks from, say, 2, 5, or 15 years ago and explained why the recommendations did or did not work out? [more inside]

How can I invest in low-cost medical clinics like RediClinic, CheckUps and Take Care? These are clinics that are inside drugstores and Wal-Mart and Target. I've visited their websites and searched in Google but they do not seem to be listed on any stock exchanges.
