    7 minutes that every trader/investor should watch before they take on the markets. I wish I had the good fortune of listening to it before I started on my journey many years ago.

    He’s so honest and correct. If you ever try to trade for a living, you know very well what he’s talking about.

    A must watch video along with Peters series on real vision. A trader who can explain complex topics in simple terms.

    This rings so true. With no experience I sat through a 60%+ draw down in bitcoin in 2014 (not really that much in actual $, I'm young) I proceeded to buy with most savings and sold advantageously last year and January. At this point I have to accept that there is a 99% chance I will never make a trade as good in my life again.
