Hi guys, I am new to all of this and at the moment I am taking part in an inter-university FREE scheme that has real prizes based on performance from virtual trading. At the moment it is only UK based so only trading in UK equities but I was wondering in simple terms what's the best way to find out if something is projected to rise or fall in relation to their stock prices. Is there like a timetable of announcements that I could then "bet" on whether it's good news or bad news. I realise that I am not going to turn into a city trader overnight but I was wondering if there are any good starter guides or resources that would help me figure out what to invest in. Cheers!
