Getting Started!

From personal experience, Gareth suggests starting your trading journey very slowly. You are in shark infested waters when you jump into the markets!  Institutions pay millions of dollars for algorithms to try to push you and your emotions to the extreme to get you to do the opposite of what they want to do. Then they take your money.  The first thing you need to do is get educated. Then you start by trading one share of a stock.  If, after a month, you are trading 45 out of 50 winning trades, you can move to trading five stocks.  Then prove to yourself again that your methods are right and effective.  And move slowly up from there.  What investors really need to understand is that emotions are one of your biggest issues.  Get those emotions in check right from the beginning.  By purposely moving slowly, and testing yourself, you will instill the essential habit of discipline.  

Investing vs. Trading?

Which is better is going to depend on your ability.  The average investor will make more money buying and holding stocks long-term.  If you want to make more trading, you must have the time to devote to the process of studying the charts.  Your mentality will also need to be considered.  If you are a risk-taker,  who also lacks discipline, you could end up underperforming. Sometimes taking less trades ends up making you more profit because you have learned to be selective in terms of the trades you are taking.
