Developed by a popular stock trading instructor, The Stock Market Course quizzes readers on their knowledge of the concepts presented in Fontanills’s Course.This book has three goals. The first is to make stock investing relevant to your particular situation. The second goal of this book is to make the case for stocks over any other investment. The third goal is to teach you how to filter out unnecessary information so that you can focus on what’s really important.
Why read this book? One answer: specialized knowledge. We are laying the groundwork to help you understand that trading the markets is not like any other corporate career. Specialized knowledge is the best thing you can receive before taking on any venture. This is where a good education in the markets will save you thousands of dollars in mistakes.
It amazes me how many people will try to save a few dollars trying to figure this market out on their own, and in the process spend thousands of dollars in losses to learn the markets. Bottom line: You will pay to learn this business one way or another. The biggest problem with learning it the hard way is that it will kill your ego (and your account) very quickly.
This book is designed to satisfy the needs of the novice trader. It provides a comprehensive beginner’s education that includes as many of the important aspects of trading stocks that we could fit into one volume. Placing a trade is the easiest part. It takes a mere nanosecond to complete. It’s what you do before and after the trade is placed that will determine your outcome.
To become a successful investor or trader, you have to start with the basics, develop an understanding of the types of accounts to set up, project your goals as a trader, and accurately assess your time availability. These first steps are crucial to your success in this otherwise hectic business.
