I decided to write this article because trading and investing seem so easy when we first encounter it. Surely it is just a matter of putting into practice what we have known all along. Buy a share, or shares, wait for it or them to go up, and when that is done sell them to someone else and sit back and relax.
Feeding that belief of course are images and tales from Wall Street, The Wolf of Wall Street and Money Never Sleeps. These men and women never lose money and they know exactly when to buy and when to sell, and then it is off to swallow loads of champagne and caviar.
