You may be thinking “New investors? But I want tips for trading stocks like the pros!” And I get that. But the thing is, when beginners first start trading stocks, it’s best to play in the wading pool — and stay away from the sharks. And there are plenty of sharks in the stock market!
That said, if you are willing to be patient and only use money that you won’t need for a long time — and can afford to lose if things go south — then you too can start to play in the market. Gamble is probably more accurate than play, but let’s see if we can at least help you improve the odds of winning.
Stock prices can go up and they can go down.
And you can lose everything.
So be aware of the risk before you trade.
