How To Become A Stock Trader

A guide to successful stock trading

By Matthew Berger

In a vast world of finance, there is one job that truly stands out—stock trading. Not only does it earn you money and clout, but it is the backbone of strong economies. You have wanted to get into trading for quite some time, but where do you start? Here are the first five steps you can take to following your stock trading dreams:

  1. Learn the Basics

Like every trade, you must first learn the fundamentals of stock trading before you dive right in. Learn the terminology, different types of stocks, market history, and so on. The fundamentals will be a solid foundation from which to build a career.

  1. Self-assessment

Stock trading is not necessarily easy, but then again, if it were, everyone would be doing it. You must look at your schedule and figure out how much time you can spend pursuing it. You will sometimes work long days, so you must evaluate your emotional capacity. You would be surprised at how many people cannot make it over that hurdle. But have faith in yourself, you can do it!

  1. Learn from the Masters

The greatest minds in history always learned from a master—this is the same idea. Perpetual learning is one of the keys to becoming successful at stock trading. It will take time, but in the end, it will be worth it. Rome was not built in a day, nor was Warren Buffett or Geraldine Weiss. Some websites help you get started immediately, like James Bond picks, offering packages that are loaded with steps, information, and techniques.

  1. Research, Research, Research

Research goes hand-to-hand with perpetual learning—research the current and historical markets. Research trends and different types of stocks. Learn as much as possible to make trading simpler.

  1. Set Realistic Expectations

If you are expecting to become a millionaire overnight, you might be disappointed. Like every business, stock trading takes time and experience. If you are looking for a quick fix, you came to the wrong place. Try to remain patient because it will take time to accumulate wealth. That does not mean that you will not hit it big someday—but make sure your expectations are not too high. People often say stock trading is like watching paint dry, but it is worthwhile.

  1. Set Goals

How much money do you want to make in the first year? How much money do you want to make in ten years? Are you saving for retirement? Setting goals will help you evaluate what is realistic, and it will also keep you on track. When you hit milestones, you will take a deep breath of triumph.

Quick Tip:

Time management is just as important as money management. The most successful traders follow a calendar, create a schedule, and log their time. Try to create checklists and to-do lists and be sure to save time for relaxation. In this field, we too often forget the most important thing: ourselves.
