Here's a hypothetical scenario: Why don't you use all the money you're about to lose to the stock market to learn a trade. Then, you can be making consistent incomes from your 'trade' w/o all the heartaches that come from taking a big loss/blowing up your account? Why aren't more ppl doing this? It seems that trading is the hard way to make it through life. Life is too short tohave it the hard way.
