Beginning Stock Trader FounderA Note From Our Founder

Hello and thanks for visiting Beginning Stock Trader. I began investing in financial markets while I was a sophomore in college. At the time it was something that I did for fun. I had very little to invest, making it hard to make any meaningful amount of money.

There were thousands of online sources, classes, chatrooms, groups, and programs that promised fantastic returns and easy money. Most of the free content wasn’t taught in an order that made sense and I felt like there were large gaps in my understanding. It took nearly two years for me to feel like I had enough of a foundation to invest more than my pocket money.

I wasn’t happy with how hard I felt it was to learn and so I built Beginning Stock Trader. I wanted a platform that taught people stock market basics for free, in an order that made sense. I wanted courses that were built for beginners with no knowledge of markets as well as product reviews on products that often sucker beginners into spending a lot of money. Finally, I wanted a place where beginners could talk with each other and ask questions without feeling dumb.
