Learning to trade can be a great way to make some money, learn a new skill, change your lifestyle, discover risk management techniques, take charge of your financial future, manage your own investments, set up your own self-managed super fund, and possibly even give up your day job or achieve an early retirement! Think it’s too good to be true? Think again! Here are 10 GREAT reasons why you should learn to trade, whilst also learning to manage your downside risks. And…10 GREAT reasons why once you have learned to trade you may be able to access greater financial freedom and choices in life.
GREAT REASON #1 Trading is Totally Portable
Once you learn to trade, you can do it no matter where you are in the world. All you need is to have access to a computer and the internet and you can take trading the stock market anywhere with you around the world. Imagine trading on a ski field in Switzerland, or on a tropical Island in the Pacific, or while taking your family to Italy in the summer! In addition to trading being portable, you should be able to monitor your trades anywhere you are on the planet, via a smart phone, iPad or android tablet, or a laptop.
GREAT REASON #2 No Staff
Learning to trade means you are learning a business that has no staff to manage, and no one else to answer to. When you learn to trade, and take that step into being an active trader you’ll only have yourself to answer to. You’ll need to learn how to have a sound trading plan, and risk management techniques to follow.
GREAT REASON #3 No Boss
Having no boss to answer to is - to most people - a great incentive to learn to trade. Enough said!
GREAT REASON #4 No customers
I know a lot people who say they’d like to make money without having to deal with customers, but in many cases they have no choice because most conventional businesses, in order to make money, require customers. Thankfully trading the stock market means no customers, and once you learn to trade you’ll quickly see how trading means you can choose your hours, unlike a full time job.
GREAT REASON #5 Regular Income Potential
Depending on the trading strategies you choose to implement in your trading plan, trading the stock market can mean you can produce a regular income. A lot of people don’t know that you can earn a regular income from the stock market, they only know about capital gains (buy low, sell high) or capital losses (buy high, sell low). Learn to trade and you can find out how it’s possible to earn a regular income from the stock market in as little as one hour per month.
GREAT REASON #6 You Can Choose the Amount of Risk You are Willing to Take
You can limit risk with lots of techniques, like using stop losses, and having profit targets as a part of your trading plan. And, wouldn’t it be great if you could come across a trading strategy that could make you regular monthly income, and at the same time allow you to manage risk? Well, there is. Learn to trade and find out how.
GREAT REASON #7 Doesn’t Take Too Much Time to Operate
Trading the stock market doesn’t have to require a huge amount of time, and can be very flexible in terms of when you spend that time. Our Income Generation Strategy takes as little as an hour per month to implement. That’s PER MONTH, not per day.
GREAT REASON # 8 Low Start Up Costs
Trading the stock market can require very little money to get started. The best part about learning to trade is that you can put in as little or as much money as you want to get started, and there’s no limit to how much money you can make or take out of your trading experience.
GREAT REASON # 9 Easy to Learn
Learning to trade doesn’t mean you have to put in the kind of effort one would to achieve a university degree. And you can practice your skills using a demo account without actually having to risk any real funds. It’s entirely up to you how much time and money you invest in your trading education. If you focus on learning not earning when you first start out, and on mastering the fundamentals of risk management, it won’t be long before you feel confident enough to begin trading with real money.
GREAT REASON # 10 Excellent Training
Besides having lots of free information at your fingertips, there is also an excellent standard of training available to you if you’re serious about learning to trade.
