Everyone would love to be able to trade and earn money in the stock market, but very few do because they don't know how to do it.

Can we fly airplanes or drive cars without knowing how to? We could certainly try, but the results would disastrous to say the least.

Why would anyone think they could just open a trading account and start making money in the stock market?

Unfortunately people do that and the results are bad: 90% of retail traders (you and I) lose money in the stock market within the first year and never recover...

Trading is a skill just like any other and it can be learned.

Trading has 3 critical components to it:

Market analysis: Understand current market condition (bull market, bear market, sideways market) and know how to position one

Strategy: Before entering any trade we need to know the risk involved (how much we are willing to risk), reasons for entering a trade (breakout...) and where to exit if price does go as predicted (where to take profit and where to place stop losses). And then we need to trade the stock (or ETF) that has the best chance to make a profitable trade (risk/reward ratio)

Management: You don't just throw on trades and hope they make money. You need to learn how to manage your trades to give you the best chance of making money.

Don't get caught unprepared and lose a bunch of money learning.

WATCH THIS COURSE to know what you're up against. Learn the challenges and the pitfalls of stock trading so you know what to expect. Once you know this, you can plan methodically, and you will be well on your way to making stock trading a reliable second income for life.


We look at many real trading examples and specific stocks to understand how we traded a specific stock, how we managed the trades and how we exit position.
