Every form of investment or trade requires that you educate yourself as far as that trade is concerned. It is very wise indeed for you to seek mastery in your craft. If your craft is stock trading, for instance, then master that craft, become the best you can be. If you can, don't even do it for the money, do it because it's what you love to do. You'll find its easier to profit from something you love to do, compared to if money is your sole motivation. Learn therefore as much as you can. Find books, videos, courses on stock trading. Take in as much information as you can and before you know it that knowledge will bring you much profit.
