Intro/Outro Music:

There’s no clear line between what counts as trading and what counts as investing, but the two are nonetheless very different practices, and most investors are best served avoiding the former. Why? We answer that question in today’s video.

Nice video I believe because through investing in Bitcoin and forex I can turn $1000 to $7500 in a week. Bitcoin and forex as a remarkable crptographic achievement.. the ability to create something which is not like what you have seen before in the digital world has a great value. A lot of people will build business on top of that. "The root problem with conventional currencies is all the trust that is required to make it work". The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency. But he history of fiat is full of preaches of that trust. Bank must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in wace of credit bubbles with barely a fraction to reserve. We have to trust them with out privacy, trust them not to make identity thieves drain our money "sincerely I won financial stability trading Bitcoin having $20,000 worth BTC trading with gregorytradingservice, all I needed to achieve my goal and I will recommend them for anyone who wants to break lose the chain of "POVERTY" WhatsApp +1 (402) 262-4917 investing right now will be on the mind of every one out there, in a month you will be ecstatic about the decision you made today what's invested now especially during this crisis determine the future.

Mark Zuckerberg says:

To be honest when I started investing into stock market, I instinctively found the balance between the two things. I just seek opportunities and profit from them, whether they're long term or short term. Sometimes time shows if my investement is short term or long term because even if I invest short term I analyze the companies individually, knowing that they will succeed in the end. I monitor these companies and as soon as they generate profit, I sell the stocks and look for another fall in value just to rebuy the stocks.

Anas Hammoudeh says:

So simple, investors invest in traders to grow their money. Investors grow their money with less to no effort, traders do the hardwork.

Amir Zarif says:

Just watched your first video. Really clear, easy to understand for a newbie invesgod, and well done. Liked & Subscribed!

On another note, trading sounds a lot of work, stress and risk. But is the satisfaction from it much more worth it than if one was to succeed well with investing?

Marlene Dietrich says:

Trading isn't gambling. No short cuts trading online. You need to learn how to read price action and purchase stock whenever there's lower risk and high profitability in play. For people that know trading understand, for the ones that dont, theres a thing called Expert Guidance. Consult an expert to guide you whilst you remain in total control of your accounts

Bryce Arnold says:

Unfortunately, many people have given Day Trading a really bad name. WIth the right training and the proper approach to managing risk and respecting leverage, you can make a good living by being a committed day trader. It's these "Kamikaze Traders" that really make it sound like a scam or a Ponzi scheme.

If you want to do this right, invest heavily in knowledge from reputable sources and give yourself as much time as you need to practice. Trade on Demo with the starting amount you would have begun with and repeat the exact same rules you will employ into your daily trading when using real money. I have been a trader for over a year now and I make a decent wage, more than other professionals in my previous field. You can do it, but at all times, be realistic, be determined, be consistent.

Good Luck
