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.

Finally, I wanted a place where beginners could talk with each other and ask questions without feeling dumb.
