Answers To Last Week’s Questions

Hey guys, if you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subjects…

Anyways… So last blog I talked about the questions you guys most likely have, which were: What in the world am I investing in that is allowing me to get these 40% returns in a day, am I rich, is this a scam, and how long have I been learning how to trade. So I am going to answer these but I am also going to tell you guys what App or Platform I use to invest or trade. There are a lot of platforms these days and some are for sure better than others. Today I will talk about Robinhood, Acorns, and MetaTrader 4. So let me answer your questions and then we will hop into the trading apps.

I am investing in commodities such as silver and Gold, Stocks like Facebook and Amazon, and crypto currencies such as XRP and Bitcoin. Now I have made probably 95% of my major profits from Gold and I have had about 95% of my significant losses come from cryptocurrencies as of September 6th. I will not stop investing in cryptocurrencies however, as we are in an abusive relationship right now because I know that once I tame that beast like I have tamed Gold and blue chip stocks I am going to be unstoppable. I digress… Now I would like to let you know that I do not simply buy and sell these. That would take me years to make the profits I am looking for. Instead I trade using leverage, meaning every one dollar I invest gets matched by a broker with 100 dollars. This means I reap the rewards of 100 dollars invested but I also can lose as if I had 100 dollars invested. If you are confused. That’s normal… I learned the financial industry takes pride in confusing people so the average person does not learn how to do what I am doing. So do yourself a favor and just look up “what is leveraged trading,” after you finish today’s blog and read until you understand it. Or just check out this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PeJoJKGNP4 . You may also be wondering if I am rich.

What leverage looks like in a picture.

If you are wondering if I am rich I will let you know now, I am far from it. I have been trading stocks and commodities for some time but I just discovered this 100 to 1 leverage a few months ago so I have been slowly refining my skills as a trader over that time. Will I be well off a year from now? Most likely considering right now I am making enough to cover my rent, my car note, and all extracurricular activities without asking my parents for any type of assistance and I just started trading a few months ago. Let’s now answer your next main question, ‘Is it a scam?’

How I look going to school when I know i’m going to be an entrepreneur

Obviously if I am creating a blog, instagram, and youtube channel with my face all over all of them, I am not interested in running a scam. Well either that, or I am really bad at concealing my identity. What I am doing is simply leveraging my money to make large amounts of profit. The income you make from trading is taxed as if it you had you own small business. I do want to put a message out here though. I am not a part of ANY trading group that does MLM. These companies typically charge you $100-$200/month to teach you how to trade and be a part of their group chats. A popular one is iMarketsLive which is frequently called a pyramid scheme. I would consider myself financially literate, however, I have done little to no research on that company so I can not say whether they are or they are not running a pyramid scheme. If you want me to dig and find out I can but that’s that on that. Lastly, all the tools I use to trade are free and cost $0 per month to use and $0 to set up.


These are some of the main questions I feel as though people would have. If you have anymore questions send me a DM on instagram. I will be posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Also in case you are confused about what this blog is. It’s a blog about getting started as a trader. I am still just starting to experience all the beautiful benefits of being a day trader, but it’s changing my life already so I plan on sharing what I have learned so hopefully other people can experience this lifestyle as well, or pursue their passions without having to worry about where their next meal is coming from. I see this as a place where a family is built. A place where everyone belongs no matter what your background is or what you look life. Follow me on instagram @TheeDailyTrader to join the family and see extra visuals that go with every blog post.  Ok now let’s get to the part a lot of you guys have been waiting for… what app or platform should you use to trade?

Trading Apps and Which One is For You

I am not just a college student who makes money trading. I have also interned with big financial companies like Fidelity Investments, who control over 7 trillion dollars in assets, and PNC Bank, who control 380 billion dollars worth of assets. So I did research on different investment apps. What I learned is that when considering which app to use you have to ask yourself these three questions.

  1. Do you want to have a passive investment app or active investment app. (Passive is where you put money into an account and it slowly grows over the year with you doing little to nothing. Active is where you buy and sell on a frequent basis, which is what I do.)
  2. Do you want to trade with leverage? (Do you want to speed up your results. This means you may win bigger but you can also lose bigger, either way you get your results faster.) 
  3. Are you disciplined enough to invest more money every month without someone reminding you.

Acorns is best for someone who wants to have a passive investment app without leverage. This is also good for the person who does not want to think about putting money in investments. Acorns is an app that will automatically pick what your money goes into based on a short survey. They also round up all of your purchases so you can have money automatically getting invested throughout the month, which allows a person  to invest without thinking about it. This may be an attractive option for someone just getting into investing but there are two main downsides to choosing Acorns. Number one is acorn charges anywhere from $1 to $3 depending on what features you want. If you want all the features they have to offer then you will pay $3 a month but you will also get a checking account with them and a debit card. The fees may not seem like a lot but if you are investing small amounts of money (Less than $250/month) then this is probably not the best option for you because the fees will eat up a significant amount of your profit (and add a significant amount to your loss if you lose money). This does not apply to college students however, as Acorns has a program that allows college students to use the $1/month option for free. The second problem is you are choosing to stay uninformed on how to maximize your money. This is convenient but it pushes you further away from taking the necessary steps to learn about stocks and commodities. So overall, this is not my personal favorite but if you think this is for you then more power to you.

Acorns Trading App

Robinhood. Robinhood is an investing app that allows you to buy and sell stock without any fees. That fact that there are no fees warms my heart because I hate paying fees of all sorts. Robinhood is good for a person who wants a mixture between passive and active. With robinhood some people buy different stocks and let them sit and grow while others use robinhood to buy and sell stocks on a daily basis. Robinhood also allows you to choose if you want leverage via their program called ‘Robinhood Gold’ (the leverage trading on robinhood unfortunately comes with a fee). Robinhood also gives you the option of automatically investing money on a monthly basis, so you don’t have to remember to deposit money. Overall robinhood is in the middle ground of every question, making it a very hybrid app. I would consider robinhood easy to use and an overall good app. There are some cons for robinhood though of course. Number one is if you want to buy and sell stocks in the same day (which arguably allows you to make the most profit out of any other trading style) you can only make 3 day trades a week unless you have over $25,000 in your instant or gold account. A day trade is where you buy a stock and sell it the same day. Another flaw is even if you use their leverage it’s only for stocks that are not very volatile (stocks that fluctuate in price very sporadically). This meant that you can not use leverage when trying to buy weed stocks. My personal opinion is that robinhood is a great app if you want to make a little money here and there. 

Lastly we have MetaTrader 4. This app is for the person who wants to have an active with the ability to trade with high leverage to maximize profits. The money that you make from this app should be significant enough to where you only have to make an investment if you want to start trading with a bigger amount of money. This app is for sure more confusing when getting started but once you get the hang of it you will understand that it’s set up in the most simple way possible while also allowing you to do so much. This app overall is my favorite (but I am bias considering I am making more money on this app then the other two combined). This app allows you to put in money and take out your profits every day/week/month while still having money to trade with. This app is just an app but to trade you need a broker. So after getting the app you have to find a broker online, using your computer. You then make an account on the brokers website and then you go back into the app, select your broker and input your login information into the app. Then you are ready to either trade with real money or practice with a demo account which is just fake money but real stock and commodities. Now I understand this seems confusing but this has the highest potential for profit out of all these apps in my opinion so the next blog post will be specifically on how to set up the metatrader app, what broker I use, and how to actually get started trading with fake money so you guys can practice. I will be including a youtube video with that blog because I know it may help to also get a video visual. Now let’s talk about the cons of this app. Number one is it’s harder to use in the beginning but as I said I will be walking you through that in two days. The other con is, because you are using leverage you have the possibility of losing money faster, but that comes from not knowing what you are doing and I will teach you how to know what you are doing. So overall I like this app because it gives people the opportunity to make as much as our hearts desire and skill sets let us acquire.

MetaTrader 4 App

Reminder of What You Guys Learned

You guys now know more about me because of the questions I answered early in this blog. You guys now know that Acorns is an app that helps you automatically invests but charges a fee, that Robinhood is a user friendly, good place to make a little money trading stocks, and that metatrader 4 is what I use to trade and that it is a trading app that allows you to trade with high leverage. You guys are going to be gurus of the finance industry in no time.

If you guys have any questions or comments, send me a DM on instagram. I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post and will subscribe to get email reminders when I post. Please do me a favor, if you enjoyed this or appreciate me taking the time to educate the masses about finance then please share this blog with a friend. It would mean a lot to me. I will see you guys soon as I tell you what broker I use, answer questions about MetaTrader 4, show you how to set it up and tell you what website I use to see when I should buy and sell the stocks.

Get Ready To Learn To Trade

Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.

— Warren Buffett

My Life Is Getting Ready To Change

I went from broke and in thousands of dollars in debt to still being thousands of dollars in debt (Special thank you to Howard University) but being able to comfortably make a 5% – 40% return on my investment every day. Yes… I said every day. Yesterday I invested $1,000 and made $400 in about an hour and a half. In two weeks I will be keeping $5,000 invested so stay tuned to see how that goes. Before we get into all of that investing stuff however, I want us to go back 16 years to around 2003.

        *Pretend it’s 2003, and I live in what most consider ‘The Ghetto’*

My dad was driving my mom and I to our house after going to the store for groceries when something I will never forget happened. We were on the block we lived on… getting ready to pull into our driveway when a car skirted in front of us and three guys opened fire at our house. Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Shots from a 9mm pistol, Mac 11, and a gun I don’t know the name of cracked into the air like the fireworks of a fourth of July show. We all survived and none of us got hurt but imagine trying to sleep in the house that night as a 5 year old. Imagine walking into your home, a place you should feel safe, but instead you are walking in fear of the shooters returning. Picture seeing bullets lodged into the walls of your favorite places in the house to play with your toys. 

Just knowing that if we would have gotten home 5 minutes earlier, I could have lost either my life or the life of one of my parents was something that was just hard for me to deal with, even at 5. Now I know this is not the typical start to an investment blog but i’m not your typical investor (technically I’m not an investor at all, moreso a trader, but we will get into that later). Nor am I your typical college student. Is it because of my past experiences? Or maybe my deep feeling of gratitude? Or my lack of skepticism? I really do not know, but listen, I am saying all of this to make the point despite your background, you can learn to trade like I have. I have had a rollercoaster of experiences growing up. Some days were hard and unimaginable and others were pure bliss. So before you label me as “lucky in the stock market” or “privileged” I want you to understand that making money in the market is not determined on your upbringing. It is determined by your ability to be resilient and disciplined.

*Fast forwarding back to modern day* 

If you can be resilient and disciplined then you can learn to know exactly when to buy and sell. Just like I did in the screen shot below. Remember I am no better or worse than you and anything that I do in the market, you can learn to do as well.

Now let’s back it up. I am a numbers person so I want to break down the numbers for you guys to explain the amount I am potentially going to be making in comparison to the average investor or investment company. 

The average ROI (definition’s are down below) when someone puts their money into the stock market is 10% annually. So if they invested $100,000 they would make $10,000 a year. Pretty good right? Well what if I told you I make 10% a day? Well… let’s be conservative and use my weekly goal of 10 percent a week. This means if I were to invest $100,000, I would make $40,000 a month, and that is a conservative estimate. So in the words of an african american millennial “I might have just done something(translation located below).” Below shows how much the average person makes from investing a year vs what I am projected to make every month.

If you are like most people you are probably pretty skeptical and are wondering if this is scalable. Well I guess you have to subscribe and keep reading the blogs to find out but I am confident this is. I started with $100 and was making my goal. Then I scaled up to $500, and now $1,000. Next is $5,000, then $10,000, then $25,000, then $100,000. So as of now, it has been scalable. The next things you are probably wondering are, what in the world am I investing in that is allowing me to get these 40% returns in a day, am I rich, is this a scam, and how long have I been learning how to trade. I will answer all these questions in my next blog. So look out for my next post this Wednesday September 11, 2019.

Small Safe Investment Options

Today I just wanted to post some screenshots of a DM I got and my response. Some people want to get their feet wet with investing or saving money and want little to no risk at all. So this is a conversation I had with someone who was looking for the safest options out based on current market conditions. I hope y’all enjoy.

Follow me @TheeDailyTrader on Instagram. Lastly, don’t forget to Get In, Get Out, and Get You a Bag.

Developing Your Mini Trading Plan

Today I want to help you guys develop a mini trading plan. You should always have a trading plan or foundation so your actions, results, and goals are in constant alignment. Ok, let’s hop into it.

Before you start trading, It is important to establish your goals. So what are you trading for? When you have an end goal in mind, it will give you the drive to achieve what you have set before you. Once you’ve done this, you can institute a timeframe in which you plan on meeting your goals and jump in to trading. 

Now it’s time to choose what you want to trade. When choosing a stock or commodity you want to trade, list out what type of trades are you looking for. Are you looking for something with small movements but is pretty steady and predictable? If so you may want to trade Gold. Are you looking for something less predictable but has opportunities for big gains? If so you may want to trade either bitcoin. So it just depends on what you are looking to do. 

Because it can be so easy to get emotionally attached to your trades and your money, you want to start out by investing only what you are prepared to lose and by setting parameters before you start trading. Prepare for the worst but expect the best. With this mindset and preparation, trading will be easier. What I mean by this is set a price you want to enter/buy a stock, what price you plan on selling it for if you make a profit, and what price you will sell it for if it starts going down. Stick to this plan.

When you are ready to start you should use an app or platform that fits what you want to do. Are you trading long term or short term? To find out which app or platform you should be using, check out my other blog “What app should I invest with.” This is a mini trading plan that you can implement when you are just getting started. If you have any questions, send me a DM on instagram @TheeDailyTrader. Remember to Get In, Get Out, and Get You a Bag! I’ll see y’all soon.

I Love Slingshots

I love slingshots. As a kid I had a slingshot… it was super dangerous now that I think about it.  That not the point however. I love slingshots and the reason why is because they represent the life cycle of traders so well. Most people don’t have a trading problem, they have a slingshot problem.

Before I get into this I want to introduce myself to any new people. My name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subject.

Ok think about a slingshot. Before you can go forward, you have to go backwards. So many people want to hop into trading and start making money and going forward on day one but they didn’t take the time to really learn how to trade and learn how to emotionally handle those losses, so they can’t go forward. Another problem is too many people quit when pulling the slingshot backwards because they feel like they will never go forwards when in reality, the further back you go, the more you learn and the more you earn.

 This is why I say trading is like a slingshot. You must learn to go back before you can go forward BUT once you finish going back, you can shoot forwards crazy fast. So many people go from not being profitable traders to being super profitable trading in a few weeks. The part that’s hard, however, is not giving up before you reach that point. So daily traders, let’s remember to pull that slingshot back and learn from our mistakes so we can shoot forward into making profit! I will see you guys next time. Let’s Get In, Get Out, Get us a bag!

Get In, Get Out, and Get You a Bag

Hey guys. I just wanted to send an update out. I have decided that as a group we should start saying “Get In, Get Out, and Get You A Bag.” The reason why we are saying this is because it represents trading and our future trading course.

It pertains to trading because when you are getting into a trade, the goal is to get in the trade, make you profit and then get out before the market starts going against you. Once you are out, the goal is that you have made a profit and therefore secured/got the bag! I like this so I am going to be saying this at the beginning and end of all my videos.

This also relates to our future training course because when I have a course I don’t want anyone to waste time. Everyone should Get In and learn how to become profitable traders, Get Out in the real world by trading and Secure/Get the bag by making a good side/full-time income trading.

Alright y’all. I just wanted to make this announcement and say Get In, Get Out, and Get You a Bag.

My Favorite Trading Book

So books are amazing and anyone who reads can tell you that. Choosing the right book to read is a struggle however and it’s something I struggle to do. Why? Because I do not inherently like reading. It’s something I’m trying to get into because I see how much value there is. So I am going to tell you guys which book I recommend. 

This book is both interesting and helpful when it comes to trading. Now I was not expecting to hear all this mumbo jumbo he was talking about and I didn’t want to do what he was saying as he described it but I mimicked other things to get the same end result. I know that’s really confusing haha but just check out the book and it will help you to control your emotions better ok?

The book is called Trading Beyond The Matrix by Van Tharp. There may be a free pdf of the book so look for that first, but if not just get it off amazon or audible.com if you prefer an audiobook like me. Hope you guys enjoy the read, I will see you all soon.

I Missed A Trade (Trade Update)

I was planning on getting into a trade with expectations of a nice pay day of up to $850. This is what happened. I was waiting for Bitcoin to drop some more to the price $6,610. I set a buy limit at that price which means when the price of bitcoin go to $6,610, my phone will automatically buy it for me.

This all sounded good in my head and I knew I was buying near the bottom. So I go to sleep and wake up this morning and a notification on my phone the bitcoin shot up so I got happy but then it was time for the moment of truth. I had to check and see if the price had gone down to my entry price before it shot up and it did! I was happy and ready to see $420 profit on my screen, but it wasn’t there…

The trade did not go through. It hit my entry price but because it did go far enough below it, the app wasn’t able to enter the trade and I missed out on my payday. This is both good and bad. I will show you a screenshot below, the dotted green line that says “buy limit” is where I wanted to get in. 

Now I know I missed money but the reason why I said this is also good because I was going to get in at the bottom of this dip. That is good because I successfully saw some indication that that was near the bottom. Next time I might be able to catch the movement. Thanks guys, I will see you all soon.

Learn To Trade in 5 Minutes (Super Simple)

I am going back to the first thing I learned when I was trying to predict the future price of a stock or of cryptocurrency. This strategy I learned in about 2-5 minutes and it’s one that I want to share with you all. I will be posting a video that goes with this post explaining this strategy soon, but for now I hope you can get value out of this.

This trading strategy is simple, you are going to have two lines on your chart. One line will be red and one line will be blue. When the red line is on top, you short or sell your stocks. When the red line in below the blue line, you buy. Now we will get into what the lines are later but here is the chart pointing an arrow at where you would short (make money as the price falls in value).

The line pointing down is where you short and the line pointing up is where you take profit. Now to get these red and blue lines on your graph simply go to tradingview.com. Then add a WMA (weighted moving average on your chart). If you don’t know how to then watch a short video on youtube and you will learn how to very quickly. Next I want you to set the setting and put in “ “Close 34” and change the color to red in the style section. The other one should be “Close 13” color should be blue.

And that’s it. Now you guys have a way to predict the market! I hope that helps! I’ll see you guys tomorrow for another blog. Remember to follow my instagram @TheeDailyTrader

How To Get Better At Trading

When it comes to trading, you should be constantly improving. This helps you to continue minimizing your losses and maximizing your gains. This sounds like simple advice but if you take it it will change your trading. This however is not my secret to getting better at trading. The secret is something powerful if used right and destructive if done wrong. Before I tell you what the secret is, I am going to introduce myself to those who are new to my blog.

My name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subject.

Ok, the wait is over. I’m going to reveal a way you can get better at trading. Its joining a group chat of people who are also trading. Some groups are helpful and some are not. So I am going to describe a great type of group to be in if you are looking to improve your trading.

Your group should have a variety of skilled traders. This should include all from beginners to experts. The reason why is because when there is a group of different skill levels, you have beginners asking a lot of questions that can help you learn the foundations. You will have the decent traders asking educated questions that will help you understand the fundamentals better, and you will have expert traders that can share the trading thought process behind trading and present new trading techniques.

Along with those benefits. Being in a trading group chat helps you out because you will be surrounded by people who understand your struggles and can motivate you to push through your inevitable losses. 

Remember when I said there were also bad ones? Well this is how you know if it is a bad group chat. In a bad group chat, there will be people trying to bring each other down. Trading is very emotional as is but adding in a few jerks trying to bring you down to lift up their trading results is not ok. Friendly competition is good, bashing is not. Also, if people in your group chat are simply telling you when to get in and get out of the market without teaching you, this is not a good group chat. This may make you money if you listen to people telling you when to buy and sell, but long term you should become self sufficient because the longer you rely on someone else to bring in money for you, the less confidence you have in yourself. So even if you are making money copying trades, at least learn how to spot the trades you are taking so you can start training your eyes.

Now remember guys, let’s always use risk management and remembers to “Get in, Get Out, and Get You a Bag.”

Minor Set Back For a Major Comeback

Daily Traders. A beautiful time is coming upon us right now. A time where a lot of people who know what they are doing are going to make a lot of money and people who do not know what they are doing are going to lose a lot of money. 

We are going to be a part of the group that makes money. We are going to be investing in crypto currency. After many hours of studying and working I have come up with a possible outcome for bitcoins next couple moves. This is not financial advice and I am not suggesting you put your money in this but I want to let you know what I see.

First I want to welcome my new readers. If you are new to the blog, my name is Trav and I invest in stocks, gold, and cryptocurrency. I started this blog because I have been able to make anywhere from 5%-40% a day in profit. To put this in lame terms, I am making what the professionals make a year, every single week. I love helping people so I figured creating a financial blog and YouTube channel would help me to spread my knowledge to others in a super simple way. Sidenote: I write how I talk rather than writing grammatically correct in every instance so I can add more character to my posts and because writing and english are by far my weakest subject.

I see bitcoin selling off (going down in value) until it gets to $6,840 and then I see it shooting up to $7,700. I will keep you all updated with this trade but I want you guys to see my trades in action every once in a while. If you are looking to purchase Bitcoin, you can do so on an app called coinbase. If you have not made an account yet, you can use this link. This link will give a free $10 of bitcoin with the purchase of your first $100 of any crypto. (Side note: I am stacking up on XRP right now for the long term because that cryptocurrency has one of the most promising futures as far as returns go right now.)

“I Don’t Have Time To Trade”

Quick side note before we get into this post. I will be posting random memes that have nothin to do with what I am talking about but I thought they were funny so yeah haha…

Elon Musk, Gary Vee, Jeff Bezos, and many others are CEOs of multiple large companies that have well over 500 employees that they manage. Why did I list these people? The reason is because they spend countless hours on their business, yet they all find time to be with their family and enjoy life. If this group of CEOs can find time, I am sure you can too. A better thing for me to talk about then, is why you or someone you know may feel as though they do not have time to learn. So lets hop into it.

Many people see me trade and they say “Man I would love to trade but I just don’t have time to learn.” My response is almost always “Yeah, I feel you. Well good luck with what you are currently working on.”

See I don’t even entertain the conversation of people telling me they don’t have time. I definitely do not judge them for saying it because at one point in time, I said the same thing, but I am not going to waste my breath explaining to them how they have time. Now I am going to take you guys through the main reason why you or your friends may not feel like they have time to learn to trade.

Many of us have busy lives and there are things we want to do but feel like our current obligations are too large for us to pursue anything else. The reason this is so, is the same reason why when you have a project due in 24 hours that you were supposed to have been working on for weeks, you buckle down and get it done in 24 hours. As humans we are programmed to take up the entire time we are allotted to finish a task. For example: If we are given 1 week to finish a 5 page paper…it will probably take a week for us to finish it but if we were given that same 5 page paper due in 24 hours, we would still finish it with pretty much the same quality. Because of this, unless we are intentional about our time and value our time, we will never have an abundance of it. 

People join clubs and play sports though, so why do people feel like they have time for those but not for trading? The reason why is because we make time for what we value and most people can’t comprehend the value of trading. I personally do not know many ways of making money that give you as much of an upside as trading does in such a short amount of time. On top of that, once you become good at trading, you can make a full time income with 1-4 hours of “work” a day. People see value in joining clubs, playing sports, and going to college but they can not see the value of making money online. 

It is not their fault though. Think about it. All of our lives we have been taught the importance of looking good on paper (on our resume) and going to college, and being a part of a club, but when were you taught the value of trading and online forms of making money? Probably not until the past few years and that’s if you are lucky.

If you are a person struggling to see the value in trading, I want you to understand this. Going to college is 4 years of investment to make money only when you give an additional 8 hours of your life out a day. Trading is something you can learn, if you learn from the right person, in 3-24 month and once you master the skill, you can always use it to make money.
