Yesterday I began to ask the question that I receive more than any other in emails, pm's, on forums, etc. "How do I begin in the markets?" So, I began with my story. How I started off, and the many lessons that can be learned from that experience. Today, I continue that story in the video below.

This is not an investment or trading recommendation. The losses in trading can be very real, and depending on the investment vehicle, can exceed your initial investment. I am not a licensed trading or investment adviser, or financial planner. But I do have 12 years of experience in trading and investing in these markets. The Challenge accounts are run for the education of other traders who should make their own decisions based off their own research.
