I am new to this Trading business. But i have enrolled in stock trading courses at college so by end of March i should be a lot more educated. I couldn't wait for the courses to end so i started trading a month ago. I have been reading a lot of books and watching a lot of videos as well as doing extensive research on everything there is to know about trading. Although many people tell me it's better to just trade on long term growth stocks which payout high dividends. I believe trading on a daily basis is just so much more fun. I jump out of bed before the stock bell rings and watch the ticker symbols, fresh news articles and research charts, graphs, company owners etc. the idea of having money work for you so fast is amazing! I also realize how fast you can lose money which is why researching everything about a company including their history (this goes for the previous owners companies) is so important! So far i am doing well though. I have followed many of Warren Buffet's principles on how he chooses his stocks. I value family most. i love nice exotic cars and fine dining...but i love fast food and old beaters. I am a stickler when it comes to spending money. I love to spend but i don't do it often...when i do spend....i have to carefully think it over and i have to find a way to replace the money spent right away or it will eat away at me. There is nothing better than not having to worry about money when you decide to splurge. I have been in that place for many years where i have to count my change before going through the grocery check out or even having to part with a basic need like milk or bread because i didn't have enough. I will never have this happen again! I am sure that in 6 months or a year i will have different outlook or take on stock trading since i am a newbie!
