First and foremost. If you are new to the stock market and just getting started in your day trading as a beginner and only enjoy focusing on the "social media marketing" that exists, you will not find value in this video. If you are someone who is new to day trading and wants the upfront truth about the best practices and strategies to grow an account, this video is for you! While I realize some people will probably accuse me of clickbait, if you listen to what I have to say... the title is actually 100% accurate. If you're looking for a way to grow a smaller trading account and want a potential way to trick yourself mentally into perhaps "going to work", look at it as you actually "making a trade"... because that's exactly what you are doing. We all start out as beginners to day trading and the stock market, so let's focus on the strategies and decisions that can help us find success in the quickest amount of time.

How do you get started with day trading? The stock market is a great side hustle if you are looking to make extra money online; however, the problem is people automatically think that you need to day trade stocks. This becomes an issue because of the most annoying and stupid government regulation: the pattern day trader rule (PDT rule). This rule limits the number of stock trades you can perform in a very inconvenient way, so many new traders look for ways to get around the pattern day trader rule. The only true way to get around the rule is to have $25,000 in your account, or you can move your money "off shore", but that can be extremely risky. Here's the good news and the truth, you can 100% avoid the pattern day trading rule and get started trading with as little money as $100. Let me show you another area of the financial markets that allows for great opportunity for those looking for an online side hustle to make money.

What if I had $0? What would I do if I had to start with no money? There are lots of side hustles to choose from, but thanks to a recent event in my life; it gave me a side hustle idea of what I would do to get started with building wealth. If you are looking to make some extra money so that you can begin to take control of your finances and build wealth for yourself, the idea I talk about in the video certainly does work in the real world. Not only have I paid others to do this side hustle, but I know many others who have paid for this side hustle (and they gladly pay). Let me guide you through this step-by-step list of what you will need to do in order to turn this side hustle from an idea to a legitimate money making strategy. The best part is, when you do it right, you can make well above the minimum wage, so if you are someone with lower income, this side hustle can and quickly will increase the money you make each month!

It is very normal for new traders to get overwhelmed by all the information available on the internet and in books. What actually is the best strategy to use when you are just getting started in the stock market and want to learn? I've been coaching traders since 2013 and through this time I've seen many of the most common mistakes pop up time and time again. Because of this and a newer area of the financial markets, I now recommend a strategy that truly makes the most sense for a new trader. This strategy will allow you to completely avoid the dreaded pattern day trader rule (PDT) and will allow you to risk only minimal amounts of money. Assuming you want to learn how to trade properly and not just "get rich quick", then let me show you a strategy that I would highly recommend you use when you are getting started and want to learn how to trade in a consistent and profitable way.

When you are a beginner to the stock market and just getting started in the world of day and swing trading, having tools to practice are a good thing! "Practice trading" can be referred to as numerous names: paper trading, simulator trading, demo trading and others, but please realize they are all the same thing. When you are learning how to trade stocks with a successful strategy, you don't want to be risking losing your hard earned money. This is why platforms that give you the ability to "trade without risk" are very popular and great for learning. However, there is also a big danger that these platforms present beginner traders with. Let me give you three tips designed to help you avoid these dangers and put you in a situation where you give yourself the best chance to learn how to trade stocks with success.Use The Platform Shown in this Video (and Get Free Stock) - GO HERE

If you are a beginner to the stock market and trying to figure out how to get started and learn how to trade, then you must learn this one skill. All success traders (whether that be day traders or swing traders) who are making money online through the stock market are masters at this one skill. I do realize that sometimes, like in school, the learning lessons can be too theoretical with not much real world applications, so I want to avoid that. I show you some proof from my own trading account that document exactly how and why this skill is so important to have (and know how to use). Without this skill, I could have put myself in a very rough situation; however, I actually put myself in a situation where I made $300 in 1 minute (literally). This skill is powerful and one that all beginners to the stock market need to know about!

I believe that passive income is something that all people should learn how to accomplish. As Warren Buffet said, "If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you'll work the rest of your life." This is what taking control of your money and building passive income streams is all about. It's impossible to have the freedom of time if you are not making money while sleeping. How can you get started with passive income and create a source of cash flow for yourself? Whether you want to use the stock market or the real estate market (or another available strategy), the idea of passive income is not "in theory". When you have a proper strategy in place and follow a plan that works, as you'll see here, you can take a simple $100 and turn it into over $6,000 by doing nothing. I know that sounds too good to be true, but it's not and I'm going to show you how!

Day trading stocks online to make money can give you many different results. When you are a beginner to the stock market and just getting started, sometimes it is hard to determine what are good results vs bad results. In my situation, I lost money trading stocks and could not be any happier with this result. Huh? I understand. If you are a new day trader, the logical conclusion would be that losing money should be classified as a "day day"; however, there is more to trading than meets the eye. If you want to learn how to be a successful day trader, there are certain traps that need to be avoided. What are these traps? I discuss a big trap that destroys many traders and use some real life results to show what I mean. Let's get to it!

One of the most important methods of making money as a day trader is to have a strategy that helps you find stocks to trade. If you are a day trader and find yourself struggling to make consistent money, let me show you a strategy that can quickly tilt the odds of a trade into your favor. I believe in keeping day trading strategies as simple as possible, so when it comes to how I find stocks to trade, as you will see... I keep it simple! What you will learn is something anyone can do with a basic understanding of numbers, so please stop over-complicating your trading methods and consider simplifying things by starting off with what I show you in the video. Let's work smarter, not harder and begin to "rig" trades in our favor.

If you are new to day trading and just getting started with the stock market (and want to learn how to trade profitably), the lesson I cover in the video is the true secret to success. To offer a little spoiler, this secret is nothing fancy and in all actuality, is very anti-climatic. Whether you believe me or not, all I would ask is please find a successful trader you do know and ask them if what I talk about is true. Anyone who is a successful day trader and makes money consistently online with stocks will agree that the strategy I show you is by far the most important lesson you could learn as a beginner. If you focus on what I show you and practice good habits and strategies from the start, you are giving yourself a true chance at success within the stock market.

If you want to learn how to day trade stocks and make money, one of the first skills you will need is the ability to STOP CRYING! What do I mean? Whether you are day trading stocks or swing trading, from time to time you will be wrong with a strategy you are using. In the world of the stock market, when you are wrong, you lose money. This is never a fun experience; however, you need to learn to be prepared for it in order to give yourself a chance at having success as a day trader. In this video I am going to show you some real life trading from myself which demonstrates this exact concept. The sooner you learn to stop crying, the sooner you will begin to see more profits as a day trader. Let's go!

Let's talk about day trading the stock market and the results it can produce. Many beginners are looking to get started and learn how to day trade the stock market for worthwhile reasons; however, the problem is many do not have the proper insights into the reality of being a day trader. The truth of the matter is, day trading can be very frustrating at times and then the frustrations show up, you need to understand the importance of having a true trading strategy that you are confident in. Just because you are experiencing a bad week or month with your results does not mean that anything is wrong. As I show you with my results, sometimes it's just part of the life of a day trader and you need to stick with the plan and not lose confidence. It's still pretty crazy to think of how fast results can change in the stock market. If you want to learn how to trade, the first thing you need to do is ground yourself in reality, so let's do exactly that.

The true secret to building wealth and personal financial freedom is establishing passive income strategies. When you are able to make money while you sleep and do the activities you love, this is the definition of true freedom. I will show you a passive income strategy I am using that helps me make $500 extra each month, for doing nothing. While I realize that may sound too good to be true, it is not and it's 100% possible. The first step in the strategy is simply making the decision to do the strategy! That may seem like common sense, and it is; however, way too many people fail to realize the opportunity that exists and just how freeing passive income can be. Let me show you how I make money every month without breaking a sweat. This is a money making strategy anyone can do by, like I said, simply choosing to do it! Let's make some passive income!

Some of the most popular stocks to trade and make money from are those trading below $5. When traders have smaller accounts and are just getting started in the stock market, it makes sense for those traders to want to trade stocks online in this price range. Some people call them penny stocks, others refer to them as microcap stocks; however, the price range is what matters most. If you want to make money from these kinds of stocks, then you need to learn to focus on certain strategies and behaviors that will put you in the best position possible to succeed. If you are someone who learns the best from events that took place in real life (in other words, NO "theory"), then you will benefit from this lesson. Let me show you how to trade stocks below $5 by explaining what details you need to pay attention to while also using strategies and trade management techniques that will help you make money.

I want you to build wealth and take full control of your life. Making money and building wealth is something anyone can do, assuming you have the right mindset. Unfortunately, some people have a mindset that is holding them back from accomplishing their goals and taking control of their own life. One note, when I say "making money" and "building wealth", I do not mean in a greedy manner at all. The best medicine for having peace of mind and being able to sleep like a baby at night is to have control over your personal finances. The best and most effective way to learn how to build wealth and grow your money is to ensure you have the right mindset. In many situations, poor people are poor because they are not viewing the world through an all encompassing mindset. What is this mindset that needs to be avoided? Let me show you!

The sooner beginners in the world of day trading acknowledge the warning that trading is a massively psychological business, the sooner they will begin to see better results. When I was a new trader and just getting started as a day trader, I truly had no idea just how mental of a challenge making money online is. It's one thing to read books on trading psychology, but in the real world of trading and learning how to trade, "reading" can only add minimal value. If you were able to witness a day trader grow more and more frustrated and see them in a sense, "lose their mind", there would be immense value in it. That's what I want to do with this video. Sure, it's quite embarrassing for me to post publicly my slow mental decline into outright frustration/anger, but for those beginners looking to day trade, it's a prime example of how crazy the human mind can be. Even if you are not a beginner day trader, my mental decline serves up a good reminder of what all day traders need to be on guard against when it comes to the mental challenges that stand in the way of us making consistent money online. Brace yourself, things are about to get a bit bumpy!

Having a day trader strategy that makes sense and actually works is a huge key to finding consistent success in the world of day trading. If you want to learn how to make money online via day trading stocks, you need to first and foremost learn about risk management. Instead of explaining what I mean through "theory", I want to use some real life trading results to explain how I minimize my trade risk while, at the same time, maximizing the amount of money I can make within a trade. For many beginner day traders who are just getting started, they think the most important parts of trading are finding the trade and knowing "when to buy". In all actuality, the most challenging part of trading and the area that will make the post profitable difference is how you manage the trade. Trade management is a big driver in ensuring you are staying profitable in your day trading strategies and growing your account. Let me show you how this all works.

If you want to make money trading stocks, you need to be sure you are trading them at the right time. What most beginning stock traders are not aware of is the fact that "not all times are created equal". Our main job as stock traders is to obviously make money; however, in order to do that we need to be placing ourselves in the best position possible to make it happen. A huge part of any stock trading strategy is to ensure you are using it during the proper time of day. So when is the best time to trade? When will you have the best opportunity to be consistent and make money? If you want to be a successful stock trader, you need to learn how to trade stocks in the smartest way possible. A great first step in "working smarter and not harder" is via the time you are choosing to trade. Let me show you how it all works.

If you want to have success as a stock trader and give yourself the best chance at making consistent money online, you need to open up as many opportunities as possible. In order to open up opportunities, you need to operate at maximum flexibility as a stock trader, which means giving yourself the ability to make money when a stock price goes down in value. If you are a beginner to the stock market and trading, this probably sounds like a very strange concept... and all in actuality, it is! But yes, when it comes to the stock market it is totally possible to make money even if a stock is dropping in value! This is known as "going short", "shorting", and any other variation. Knowing this, the next logical question in terms of learning how to short a stock is... well, "when" should you look to short a stock? I want to show you step one in this process of when you should be most interested in shorting a stock so you can make money when the price of that stock goes down. Let me show you what I mean.

In this video I want to give you a starting point guide of how to setup your trading platform to ensure you are paying attention to the information that matters most to us as day traders.

Facing challenges and struggles is normal for those just getting started in the stock market looking to learn day trading. I've been day trading stocks now for well over 10 years and I've learned many valuable lessons along the way, including some simple tricks that can make big difference within your trading strategy (and results). We should always be striving to get better at day trading and I want to show you a little trick that I've implemented into my day trading strategy that has made a massive difference. Context is king within the world of being a day trader and you need to give yourself the opportunity at it. Without context it becomes very difficult to make rational and logical money making decisions within a strategy; however, when you take a breath and allow yourself access to context (which I'll show you in the video), it will truly begin to open up new opportunities within your stock market trading strategy.

TD Ameritrade and their ThinkOrSwim ("TOS") platform is one of the online stock brokers and trading platforms I get asked about most often. In most cases, the people asking about it are just getting started in their trading journey. As a beginner trader it is wise to be asking about the trading tools available and seeking to find the best ones to help you make money in the market. Combing this with the facts that much seems to have changed for TD Ameritrade lately, I wanted to discuss this and give you my thoughts. I will be fully transparent, these are just my thoughts and opinion, so you are more than welcome to disagree; however, as you will see in the video, I do use some actual (former) customer feedback to fortify my opinion. If you are a beginner stock trader and wondering about TD Ameritrade and their ThinkOrSwim platform, let me give you a review on it based from people who have been using the platform to trade and have noticed quite a few changes.

Day trading stocks is a great way to make money and if you have any experience on social media or the internet, then you've seen plenty of "secrets" being revealed. The problem with these secrets to making money from the stock market is they're all based in "excitement" and "glamour". If you want the honest secret to having success as a day trader and making money trading stocks, you'll have to accept the fact that the key skill you must have is very anticlimactic. My goal with this video is not to sit here and lecture you about this skill you must learn, but rather, I want to teach you through some real life trading results that happened to me. This way you can learn with real results rather than someone throwing theory at you. I can make you one promise and my promise is this: if you learn how to overcome the challenge I show you and develop the required skill, you will be giving yourself a real opportunity to have long lasting success as a day trader in the stock market!

Striving to build wealth and turn yourself rich is an admirable goal and something that everyone can do. If you want to become rich, you need to do what other rich people have done... hopefully that is common sense. In my studies of the rich and wealthy, I've constantly seen the same "thing" over and over again. While I can't say it is rocket science of some stroke of genius, I can say that given today's society and many of the problems it facts, most people are NOT doing this. I want to show you a way to begin to shift the mindset you have towards the world. I want to show you what I have done which has helped me tremendously in building wealth and taking control of my time and money. It's amazing how when you change your viewpoint on any area of life towards the positive, you just seem to all of a sudden "get lucky". What is this thing that all rich people are really good at and how can you begin to do it in your daily life? Let me show you...

Ambition is awesome and without a doubt required to have success in the world of the stock market and trading stocks online. Ambition is what drives innovation and has the power of changing someone's entire situation for the better, whether that be in the stock market or any other area of life and wealth building. With all that being said, ambition has a darker side that can take shape in some very tragic and sad ways. I am all for ambition and for people getting out there and "taking control" of their life through goals and aspirations; however, ambition must be understood and balanced in order for the desired outcomes, especially in the stock market where real money can be lost. A newly released headline tells a sad story of a younger person who was acting out of ambition within the stock market, but, got way too far ahead of themselves leading to a worse case scenario outcome. Let's walk through some of the lessons we can learn from this and how to be as wise as possible when it comes to being ambitious and navigating the awesome (but potentially dangerous) world of stock trading.

One of the most common questions I get from people just getting started in the stock market is in regards to the types of tools I am using. In order to help guide you as a beginner day trader, I want to walk you through my trading desk and computer with an explanation of what I personally use as a day trader. Are these day trading tools all required in order to make money online? Absolutely not. A big part of the day trading tools you will use to trade has to do with personal preference and what you feel most comfortable with

If you are a beginner in the world of day trading, you must learn just how important psychology is to having success. While you absolutely need to learn how to use day trading tools such as technical charts and Level 2's, there is more that is needed in order to have consistent success in making money online. The human mind can be a crazy place when your hard earned money is at risk, so learning to understand your own psychology is a requirement for success. I've been working with beginner day traders since 2013 and there are two common mistakes I see over and over again when it comes to that person's psychology. I have been day trading stocks online for over 10 years now, and I still struggle with these mind games that arise. Over the years I've learned how to identify these two common psychology mistakes, but more importantly, I've learned how to avoid them. The first step to becoming a profitable online day trader is to be self aware of your psychology. By doing this, you will give yourself the opportunity to fix any problems that may cause you problems.

If you want to make money in the stock market, you need a quality trading strategy. A huge part of the trading strategy is knowing when you should buy the stock. Buying a stock at the wrong time quickly puts your chances of making money on the trade in doubt. When it comes to beginner stock traders and those just getting started, they sometimes over-complicate the strategy and I want to provide a couple basic tips to help make this more clear. The tricky part about knowing when to buy a stock is that it goes against how our brains are wired. This is why so many new traders struggle with this idea and end up losing money with their stocks they buy. If you want to learn how to be a successful trader, you need to learn how to fight off the mental traps your brain will set for you. Let me show you what I mean.

For day traders, being able to use your trading strategy as efficiently as possible can make a big difference in your online money making goals. A large part of being able to day trade effectively is the trading computer you use, but more specifically, the monitors you have in place to track the varying pieces of information that are always flying around. I've been helping and guiding beginner traders since 2013 and one of the most common problems I see is people not setting up their trading computer monitors the best way. I want to offer you a guide on how to set up your trading monitors in not only the best way possible to make you money, but even more so, try to make it as cost effective as possible. The more money you can save with your trading computer setup, the more money you can use to invest into learning and fund your trading account. Be sure to use this step-by-step guide when you are ready to add multiple monitors to your day trading computer.

When you are a beginner to day trading stocks online, it is very easy to become overwhelmed at all the information that is available to you. You are not alone with this feeling. If you want to learn how to become a consistent and profitable stock day trader, you need to understand what matters most. In this video I will walk you through what I consider to be a "must use" tool that all stock day traders should use. The good news is that when you learn how to use this tool the right way, it can very quickly simplify all the noise and distractions you will encounter as a trader.

Whether you are a new trader who is a beginner to the stock market and day trading or a day trader with experience, there is one indicator that is a "game changer" when it comes to the results it will give you. If you want to learn how to be a successful day trader and make money online, you need to learn that day trading is all about placing as many odds in your favor. The more odds you have in your favor, the higher the chances are you will make money on the stock. One indicator that needs to be used will help you begin to see more consistent results within your trading. If you are struggling as a day trader to make money online, let me show you how this indicator works so you can begin putting the odds more in your favor and giving yourself a better chance to make money with the stocks you trade.

One of the most common goals I see with people involved in the stock market and looking to make money online is to eventually become a "full time day trader". This is a very ambitious goal and I have nothing but respect for people who are this ambitious. Making money online and having the ability to work from home (or anywhere you would like) is the definition of a freedom. With all that being said, if you want to become a full time day trader, you need to approach everything with a proven strategy that will give you the best chance at success. Let me show you the steps you need to take in order to become a full time day trader in a realistic way. If you think it's just matter of quitting your day job and then proclaiming "I'm a full time day trader", you are mistaken. You need to be smart about your journey to becoming a fully time day trader, so let's focus on this proven strategy to make it happen.

Let me be brutally upfront. Trading stocks online and making consistent money is a very difficult method of wealth building. Is it possible to make money trading stocks and is there a lot of upside potential? Absolutely! If you want to find success in the stock market and learn how to trade the right way, you need to "work smarter, not harder". When you surround yourself with other quality traders and join a trading team, you automatically gain an advantage over many other people. How so? Instead of you trying to scan the entire market alone, you give yourself assistance in scanning the market and making money as everyone works together.

How long will it take you to develop a money making stock trading strategy? Is it possible to start making money online trading stocks after only one week? If you want to learn how to learn to be a consistent and profitable trader, the strategy you use is a massive piece of the puzzle. With that being said, if you want to give yourself the best chance at developing a money making strategy, you need to understand context and be grounded in reality. If you get started in the stock market with false or unrealistic expectations, you are putting yourself in spot for frustration and disappointment. It is totally possible to make money trading stocks online and to have a profitable strategy, but you need to be realistic about it.
