More often than not, the toughest part about a task is getting started. That especially rings true in online stock trading. You would have read the success stories, heard “hey, there is money to make” chatter from your friends, and of course, the television endorsements.

You would have been determined to start the very moment, but alas it’s like hitting a gym. Yes. You happen to start early one fine day with the adrenaline rush and then, everyday is not the same. Those six pack abs start to look like a distant dream. It’s easy to throw in the towel and go instead for a six pack of beer.

This is a business and not a treasure hunt. If you want to get rich in a day, this is not for you. Trade with caution, make mistakes, learn from them, and grow successful. Just not the stocks, it works in every walk of life.

Determination is the key and commitment should be the motto. To sit in front of your computer for hours doesn’t make you a great trader, but to dabble with the stocks, start reading. There are innumerable books from where you can source the knowledge from and of course, there is the World Wide Web.

There are 24 hour news channels that feed you information like no other. There are experts that adorn the screen who talk about anything and everything about stocks. Pick up the nuances of stock trading from these experts, gain the knowledge from the books, and trust your gut. Remember, intuition and cold logic are the attributes that makes a successful stock trader.
