I  have gained some real world experience in the stock market, as I have tried some different investing strategies that range from day trading to value investing. I learned the hard way that trading stocks is not as easy as it seems, and can take years to learn. However, through all my successes and failures I have gained some valuable knowledge along the way, and am now ready to share this knowledge with you in the course I have created.
