It is surprising just how many people keep asking expert traders what the key to succeeding with trading for a living is. As a matter of fact, people that are sick of their jobs and having to answer to bosses are the ones that are the most in need of help with learning how to earn money from trading.
This is understandable because if you are serious about making a lot of money then working at a regular job represents the worst option and in addition it is also a very inefficient way of making money.
When you trade to make a living you will not be constrained by factors such as time because you can spend as much or as little time in trading as you desire. What’s more, the return on your time and effort is quantifiable and you will also get good value for your efforts. And, by trading you are also helping to inject liquidity in the markets which is a valuable thing as well.
People that earn a living from trading can expect to be paid for what they really are worth and in addition it means that they can earn enough money to become wealthy which is not possible if you hold a regular job. In addition, you can put limits on how much money you wish to earn and you are also a freer person. Best, of all by choosing to trade for a living you are also assured that there will be no need for you to work to earn your money.
All you need to do is place a trade and type in a stop-loss order and then spend some time doing what you like. As long as the trade moves in a desirable direction you will always succeed in making money from your trade. Another benefit to trading in stocks for a living is that you can put in a one-time effort that will then help you earn money over and over again.
You can, for example, purchase a stock on a Monday and then when the stock moves in an anticipated direction, over the next few days, you will start to earn money for as long as you hold on to the stock. This shows that for a single act (buying the stock) you will make money over and over again (for each day that you hold on to the stock).
Before getting involved in trading for a living you must first get rid of all your personal debts, have enough capital, be in possession of a trading system that is proven and systematic and logical and finally you must also follow all the rules of good money management.
The only trouble is that there are also drawdowns which are unavoidable. The smart traders are aware of this and so will, instead of actually indulging in trading will offer to teach people how to trade and earn money out of a living.
This is how the smart people make money. They know that when people don’t know enough about making money from trading it allows a smart and knowledgeable person to sell knowledge to others and in this way without risking their money earn a decent living.
