Hello, my name is Diego Flores and I am a sophomore at Chico State. I am currently a business major and I’m always looking for ways to sharpen my skillsets in the business environment. I firmly believe one of the most crucial skills is knowing how to invest, which is what encouraged me to invest in the Stock Market. I have been trading since May 2020 and still consider myself an amateur trader. I began with a minimum of $500.00, which is arguably a good amount to begin with. Before I began investing my money I researched about terminology, chart patterns, etc. It is smart to research any hobby you want to dive into, so you have an idea if it is for you. Today, trading remains to be a learning experience as I continue to invest. The information is so vast, so I do my best to absorb as much information and in return make it applicable.
The purpose of this blog is to provide basic information about those who are interested in investing in the stock market. Additionally, I will be talking about my wins and losses to truly show what it is like to be in the stock market. Many people want to begin investing but are misinformed that you have to be an expert to see profit. That is not true and I’ll be establishing the foundation of what has kept me going and how to internalize profits and losses. I am a stock options trader, which I will cover more about in another post. Personally, I have seen a lot of my success as a stock options trader and has allowed me to gradually build the small account I have today. Lastly, a point that is often overlooked is that investing is about patience. Many believe that profits come immediately, but it takes time and accuracy to genuinely see improvements. Apart from learnings the technical sides of investing, I will be talking about keeping our emotions on check and preventing us from making reckless investments. In some posts I might reiterate previous topics to ensure that the information is sticking.
It is never too late or too early to invest in our future financially, it is all about our willingness to learn.
