Rule #1: Don't lose money. Rule #2: Make money. Rule #3: At the height of your excitement Sell. Rule #4: At the low of your misery Buy. I'm letting God lead me and I'm just here for the ride.
I'm going to warn you right from the get go - I have NO earthly idea what I'm doing. None. No, really. Quit my day job and been F/T trading since June 2013. Have more money than I started with. Substantially more. Better lucky than good? Guess so.
I started trading only last year but i took stock trading courses as well as spend over 13 hours a day researching trends and companies financials, charts, etc. Trading stocks is most addictive yet rewarding job i have ever done!
