    Advice for a Begginer Programmer

    Hello.:-) I want to learn how to program so I can analyze stock market data. I want to do things such as find the average daily volume of the stock for the past "X" days...What languages do I need to learn in order to do stuff like this? Is this possible in to do in Microsoft Excel or is some other language better?

    Regards,

    Excel is very bad at handling large amounts of data. You may want to try some statistical packages or statistical scripting languages, such as R.

    I recommend using Mysql in a simple blog to show up the points and the stock rise and drop just simple statistical skills.
