S1M4 "Why You Should Learn to Trade"

Like it or not, we live in a capitalist society. Therefore, even if you don't intend to trade actively, understanding how financial markets work will have a positive impact on all aspects of your life.

Let's discuss the reasons why you should learn to trade and how to incorporate this knowledge into your future to gain happiness from financial security and freedom.

Why Learn to Trade?

There are not many skills you can learn, that allow you to master your own destiny. However, trading is one of them.

Have you ever felt undervalued or underpaid in the workplace? Statistically, the majority of people do.

Trading offers a solution to this problem. There's no limit to your potential earnings. the ability to earn directly correlates with the effort and time you put into trading.

It's no longer who you know, all that matters is what you know and what you do with that knowledge!

That's because you will be your own boss -- you'll be an entrepreneur running your own company.

You decide your holiday time, where to work from and your working hours.

You could be sitting by the pool on a long family holiday (paid for with cash!) while earning your income for the month. Stress free!

You can trade from anywhere in the world, providing you have internet access. You don't need any fancy equipment or office space.

"I'm not sure if I'll actually use what I've learned!"

Not everyone wants to trade full-time, for some people, that's not their ambition. If you derive pleasure from your existing job, you can carry on doing that, and trade part time using a 'set and forget' approach that will be taught in this course.

You can keep the stability of your job, whilst also enjoying the benefits of extra income to treat your, family, friends and yourself with minimal extra effort!

Having a lot of ‘start up’ money isn't a necessity - you can build your wealth gradually over time, by using an approach I call 'snowballing'.I have used this approach to trade relatively small amounts up to large amounts in as little as one day.

While you're thinking about whether to trade actively or not, remember, it doesn't hurt to learn a useful skill now, in case you need to rely on it later. "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

Even if you decide not to trade after taking this course - your new knowledge will serve you well.

As I said earlier, we live in a capitalist society and the term "money makes the world go round" has never been truer.

Understanding more about how the global financial markets work, will enhance other aspects of your life. You will be able to anticipate trends in your industry more accurately (this will help you know when to ask for a pay rise) and better understand the needs of your clients. It will also improve your understanding of political and corporate decision making which is heavily influenced by the financial markets.

As you can see, trading is more than just a big casino for the rich. It's an influencing factor in everyone’s life. This means any knowledge you gain in this area will have a tangible impact on you.
