Find a share that's 'guaranteed' to keep going up, such as Microsoft.    Bet that it will go up (by a small percentage).   Repeat & rinse.

 

 

(I've only been doing this for 3 days, so don't take my word for it lasting.  Lol.      But it appears to work so far).

My first share I bought 1,000 Argos shares, they rose within two weeks 100% doubled in values, that was the poison pill  , doing nothing , knowing nowt  and making £2,000  in 14 days.The story of most stock traders.

If it's actually shares not SB or CFDs you're talking about, then I made £5000 on one share in the period of a couple of weeks (in my pension).    Lost it all coz I failed to put a stop loss on.  Thought it would only last a short period going down...     It didn't, and I lost all that I had gained.   But then again, that was in the very early days;  I've learnt since then.

To become a more successful trader you will unfortunately have to experience what its like to lose money on trades.  You will then learn from your trading of what just happened and change your strategy to become better next time.  You can always practise from a virtual or demo account - but be realistic and input figures and trades you would have actually traded for real.   

 

Always only invest money you can afford to lose - assume when the trade is placed, you lose 100%.  Do not place the trade if you cannot accept that.    Anything you gain then is a bonus. 

 

Understand the fees/charges your broker charges and possibly try different platforms to see which one works best for you.  If you are trading you can end up spending a lot of time at a pc screen(s).  It would be wise to invest in a comfortable seat and take regular air breaks throughout the day - step outside for a few minutes.

 

How to make money from trading is simple BUY low, SELL high!  Through time you will learn how to get it more right than wrong.  I have my own trading strategy that works for me but everyone else has their own methods and ways of trading.  You learn and use your own then you will be dedicated to learn more.

 

good luck whatever happens

      Markets trade-off Friday overhang: Markets traded in something of a vacuum Monday. The themes driving price action were more-or-less those that had determined activity to end last week. The effects of this were pronounced in the Asian session, but much less so in Europe and North America. It stands to reason: Asian markets were still to digest Friday night’s abysmal European PMI figures. That data’s impact is still rippling through the market. Anxieties about global growth and the likelihood for a global recession is the topic of the day. But the material losses stemming from these concerns, though broad-based, have been limited overnight. Wall Street is down but bouncing; European stocks were down; while futures contracts for Asian markets are mixed.

      Risk-off generally prevails: Fear is demonstrably higher. On balance, safety was generally sought on Monday. In something of a bittersweet development, the VIX has pulled of its lows, to trade above 16, as traders reprice volatility and risk. In the broader G10 currency complex, the Yen has been led the pack, though its rally has steadied, and it is currently shuffling around the 110-handle. Investment grade credit spreads have widened notably, as speculation about slower growth has fanned-fear regarding the massive US corporate debt burden. And finally, the overnight-drop in the US Dollar, combined with the ubiquitous disappearance of safe-yielding assets the world-over, has pushed gold prices to $US1322 per ounce.
