1. How do I determine my risk tolerance when choosing stocks to buy?

Ans. Assess your risk tolerance by considering factors such as your financial goals, time horizon, and comfort level with market fluctuations. This will help you select stocks that align with your risk preferences.

2. What factors should I consider when researching stocks?

Ans. Key factors to research include a company's financial health, industry trends, competitive position, and growth prospects. You should also stay informed about market conditions and economic developments.

3. Is it better to invest in individual stocks or diversified funds like mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs)?
