Why should I trade stocks?

If you are asking yourself … why should I trade? I think the real question is, why am I not trading?

If you are like me or the average person you probably thought trading was only for smart people with a lot of money. The truth is trading is for anyone who is interested. The stock market does not care what your race, age, color, or what your educational background maybe. We all have one thing in common and that is to make money.  Day/swing trading creates an opportunity to make some great money from anywhere in the world on your computer or from your smart phone on the go.  It does not get any more convenient than that.

I wish I could recoup all the money I spent on partying, buying expensive clothes, and driving nice cars.  Whenever I think about it, all I can say is what a waste it was. There was no real benefit or financial stability from it at all.  At least with day/swing trading you create an opportunity to make money and get something beneficial in return.   If you lose some money (even the pros lose money) you can file a loss up to $3,000 on your taxes as a deduction. In my book that is a win win. We spend money every day on stupid unnecessary things that have no real benefit other temporary pleasure.  In my opinion, there is nothing better than investing in yourself.  You will have a skill that will last a life time and create a solid financial foundation which is invaluable.
