    There are countless ways to make money in the market, yet most people can't make money - a cure fact!
    I think any investor or trader need to make an effort to honestly learn about themselves first (like what kind of risk level comfortable, return expectation, holding period, time for doing research...), then study about suitable investing or trading methodologies (or system, or setup, or whatever one call it), do demo trades, then trade with little real money, till consistently profitable.....analyse losing trades....a life long journey!

    Investing in dividend stocks is also a good option, I would suggest going through these do's and dont's before investing:
    Don’t Chase the Highest Dividend
    Do Understand the Company You’re Investing In
    Do Study a Company’s Cash Flow Statement
    Do Look for Companies with a History of Increasing Their Dividends
