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]

Investing on (Great) Wall Street

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.

Should I buy some stock now?

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.

Investing in low cost medical clinics

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.
