Stock Market For Beginners 📈 TRADING AND INVESTING 101
MY EBOOK! http://www.ryanoscribner.com/stock-trading
Stock market for beginners advice! Here are some of the things I wish I was aware of when I first started trading stocks on the stock market. As a beginner, you want to learn as much as possible before beginning to trade stocks. I spent the first 9 months of my trading career without making a profit on one single trade, and in doing this, I learned many valuable lessons. Here are the six things I wish I knew as a beginner trading stocks for the first time:
1. Get over your emotional attachment to money!
This is something I learned from the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. If you make investments and let your emotions get involved with your trading, you will not be making the best trading decisions. You want to trade stocks solely based on technical data in front of you and nothing else. Getting emotional over losing money will make for a short lived trading career. The stock market is no place to be airing out your feelings.
2. Invest in something you actually care about!
If you like video games, buy stock in a video game company. If you have never taken interest in the company you are looking into, don’t invest in it! You will have a much easier time riding out the storms if you invest in a company you care about and are proud to represent with your money.
3. Buy low, sell high!
You want to be boarding the ship when everyone else is getting off. Often times people, including my former self, buy a stock because it is way up on a trading chart. People like good news and generally look at a stock that is down in price as a sick stock. This is the opposite of what you want to do. You want to be going against the prevailing trading trend. When everyone else is selling, you are buying! This is a mistake I see many beginners making when trading stocks for the first time.
4. Invest no less than 00!
You need to have enough skin in the game to offset commission and slippage associated with a trade. If you don’t have enough to invest yet, start trading on paper for practice!
5. Don’t buy the news!
You don’t want to trade stocks based on what you read or see in the news. This is known as the herd mentality. You want to have confidence in your trading ability and make decisions based on your own research. You want to buy the rumor and sell the news!
6. Only check your stocks a few times a day!
A mistake many people make is obsessively checking the price of the stock during the trading day. If you do this, you will likely get shaken out of a position too early and leave profits on the table. Even worse, you could get your emotions involved and sell out of fear and panic in a downtrend! If we are keeping track, that violates three of these beginner stock trading rules.
I hope this helps you out with your own stock trading! As a beginner, you really want to spend as much time as possible learning. If you are interested in learning about my stock market trading strategy, I just released my ebook I have been working on for the last three months! A link to that is above and I greatly appreciate your support.

My name is Ryan Scribner. I am a nutrition and fitness crusader and I consider myself to be a life student of personal development. I am also an investor. I went from being an overweight college student to living at 8% body fat. About two years ago when I started weight lifting, I was completely clueless. I never played sports in high school and I had no base level of fitness established. I made many mistakes, but over time I developed an understanding. I want to help others develop the body, spirit and mind they deserve. In making mistakes along the way and learning from scratch, I have a lot of value to bring to the table. I recommend my content to those interested in the accumulation of wealth, fitness and nutrition as well as personal growth and development. Recently, I made my own happiness a priority after living with depression for over a year. I want to share with you exactly what I did to get to a state of perpetual lasting happiness. I have also spent a great deal of time learning about investment and wealth accumulation. While money alone doesn’t bring happiness, it allows you to experience many things which do bring happiness.
