EDIT: At the time this blog entry was posted I had a Youtube video here. That has been removed but I want the rest of my content to be remain. Nothing hidden no past mistakes ignored. All out in the open.
Investing and Trading are like any skill set to make a living. You have to put the time in to improve your skill. Learning, practicing, doing, etc. I think this is where the vast majority of traders and investors will get themselves into trouble. Not the actual investments they make with their money but the lack of investing in themselves.
Its easy to start investing and trading. Just open up an account, deposit some money in, and then start clicking the buy button. Sooner or later a big mistake happens but the blame often is not with what they bought but how and why they bought it. As I mention in the video, use the proper tool the way its intended.
