Stock Market Beginners

Learn How to Trade

Stock Market Beginners

It is a well known fact that most stock market beginners lose money.

In almost every other aspect of life for which we are considering spending a sizable sum of money, we would research it and compare prices perhaps for some time, before we actually commit ourselves to handing over our hard earned savings.

Sometimes we will even trawl the streets in that effort to save an extra few bucks, just in case we can get our purchase slightly cheaper from the store round the next corner.....

....and yet when it comes to stock market trading and investment where the stakes can be much higher, many of us readily dive in and throw our cash in to an investment  without really knowing why we are doing it or even what we hope to gain from it.

Sure, we know we want to make a huge profit from our trade but, why did we invest in XYZ? Why did we choose to trade XYZ today? How much do we expect to gain for our investment and do we know when it is time to sell?

A few simple questions that may seem obvious to consider once you have had your fingers burned a few times in some trades that went badly wrong, but perhaps not quite as obvious for stock market beginners who have cash in their pocket and are itching to start making money and become the next Warren Buffett.

It is a fact that very few stock market beginners spend some time learning about the stock market before they begin trading.

Why do Most Beginners Lose Money

We are lured by the tales of big gains and the opportunity of making money online from trading, lots of it. This is simply too big a draw for us and we can tend to lose our sense of reality for a time. We can forget that there is also a possibility that we could lose money!  

We do already know that there is always the chance that we could lose, but we see trading as an easy way of making money and  believe it is there ready for the taking. If our trade goes the wrong way we could simply sit it out until it comes good again, so it just is not a factor that needs consideration and it automatically goes to the back of our minds..... We want to start making money and we want to do it NOW!

Sadly, for most stock market beginners, the dream ends there. They can find out very quickly that making money from trading is not quite as easy as they had first thought that it would be, and most beginners will take some very costly hits.

Others may even have a bit of success and start off making money straight away. Unfortunately, this can be even worse for them in the long run, as they get over confident and escalate trades by risking more and more as time goes on.

 After all, they just "can't lose".

 In actual fact it is not that they cant lose, it is just that they have not lost yet.

This can lead the stock market beginners into a false sense of security. When they do have a losing trade, they don't have the knowledge or experience of how to deal with it. By this stage it is likely that these can't lose traders are risking large sums of money and are doomed to failure.

What they have not yet learned about the stock market is that all traders will lose on some investments, it is learning how to manage those losses that makes the difference between being a successful trader or becoming part of the statistics.

Money can disappear at an incredible rate if markets turn against us.

Learn How to Trade - Learning About the Stock Market for Beginners

The two most important things we need in order to make money from trading and investment, are knowledge and experience.

Practice trading before risking any cash for real can help to avoid incurring heavy losses initially. We already know that most new traders lose money so whilst we learn to trade, it is far better that those losses should be on paper rather than draining our account for real.
