If you are a beginner to the stock market and looking to learn, hopefully I state the obvious when I say this: when you are new to anything, you "are" an idiot. It is especially the case when you are getting started in the stock market as a trader. Day trading or swing trading, when you are looking to learn how to trade and begin, you are an idiot! That's not something to be shameful of or take offense to. It is what it is. The key is are you able to accept that fact, not be offended by it, and then figure out how to "not be an idiot". That's how you succeed and is a critical role and step within the world of trading to find success in making money.
