For some reason there is and i guess always has been a good amount of people wanting to know how to make money in the stock market. Sometimes i simply think other people think it is easy to make money. They say to themselves well if i don't know anything there is still a 50% chance and if I know at least something from a couple dvd's or books then i have an even better chance. The only problem these people never realize is that it is a business. Few people realize that which amazes me. You would think after countless failures among people who are not educated in the market the stock market would be known as the get poor quick instead of the get rich quick. I get asked constantly by relatives and friends, "How can i make some money in the market?" If i totally lacked any bit of politeness i would give them a furious "you think me giving you any advice in an industry or any superficial tip can actually help you make money in the market?" I want so bad to tell the entire world of greedy shallow wannabe's in the market that it is no different than any other business. It makes absolutely zero sense to ask your surgeon or lawyer friends how to make money in law or medicine so where does this idea of asking successful day traders come from? Where do people get the idea that it is so easy?
