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

Trading is a skill just like any other.  Nobody knew how to type first time they sat down at a computer, so why would you think you could just open an account and start making money in the stock market?  But people do.

Trading has 3 critical components to it:

1)  Options:  You need to understand how they make money, how they lose money, and exactly what they are

2)  Strategy:  You don't just throw on a trade without having a reason.  Even if you have a reason, do you know what strategy gives you the best chance to make your reason profitable if it actually happens?

3)  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 Options 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 Options trading a reliable second income for life.
