This book wasn’t written to try and teach you how to trade the stock market but hopefully to teach you something a heck of a lot more important; how NOT to lose a truck load of money, your house, your spouse and your mind during the “learning curve”. If you will follow some really simple rules, I can shorten your learning curve a great deal.
I traded my first stock on line in 2000. I lost approximately $100,000.00 before I learned how to manage my losses. Before I go any further, I want to make you aware of one thing:
If you trade the stock market, you will have losses. If you can’t accept that reality, stop here, there’s no need for you to read any further.
Ok, you’re still with me so here we go. This book was written and laid out to be as simple and to the point as possible. It will be divided into short chapters; I’ll also use as many simple examples as possible. I’m not going to recommend you read a ton of trading books but there is one book you really need to read, I’ll mention it later.
