My trading career was like most other peoples when they first start out - I lost money. I had to start immersing myself into traders communities in order to learn and grow. It is often said that you are the average of the 5 people that you spend most time with - in stock trading I really believe this is true. A great trader once said that 'you only learn from mistakes, but nobody said they have to be YOUR mistakes'. So try and learn from other traders mistakes! So go into as many stock trading chatrooms as possible! If you need reviews of these chatroom, visit my website that details dozens of the available stock trading chatrooms (link is in my signature).
