You are young - so I guess you have a riskier trading profile than older people - And please don't call it "playing".

I am a 17 year old teenager and i want some tips on how to get started in playing the stock market?

You are young - so I guess you have a riskier trading profile than older people. You have the time to earn back money you lose - so perhaps most of your "playing" would be high risk high return ventures / trading. Have a look at CFDs (http://www.mysharetrading.com/trading-topics/derivatives-cfds) and other derivatives for a little leverage.

And please don't call it "playing". It is either - trading or investing. Trading is a serious endeavour and you can lose your hat. Have a plan - a plan to enter and exit the market. And don't ever gamble or let your emotions play you.
