Thanks to feedback from a comment I received on YouTube, we have a talking point that is extremely important for those of you who are new to the stock market and trading and just getting started.

I believe day trading is one of the most freeing and powerful ways to make money. But, there is also some "painful" truths that need to be understood when you start. As unpleasant as it may be, stating your trading journey with realistic expectations will ultimately make the journey easier. Let's talk about why and how this is the case.
