We believe that every novice trader learning how to trade should get their basics right. Some techniques work in the market, and then there are methods and techniques that might look good on paper but fail in almost all markets where you apply them. Instead of asking “how to trade?” we think traders who are beginning their journey would be better off asking, “How do I come up with an edge?”, “Can I develop a profitable system?”. Everyone is looking for financial freedom in this world, and trading can lead you there if you start asking the right questions. Stock trading for beginners should start with reading and learning. Read as much as you can, and to nudge you in the direction, here is a series of videos we have recorded on trading strategies for beginners that can also come in handy for advanced traders:
