Starting and Getting Confident in Stock Trading

Stock trading can help you build wealth, but for many, it’s can be intimidating. If you haven’t been taught a trader skillset, where do you start, and what are the mistakes to avoid?

Jason has over a decade of stocks and options trading experience and is a graduate of Wayne State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. At the age of 23, Jason took a $10,000 student loan and turned it into a six-figure trading account as a result, his passion for teaching others how to unlock the financial power of the stock market began. Jason has since created his own online stock market education company “Power Trades University” which houses his courses, live trading, coaching. and community, which has helped thousands of students around the world to start investing and learn the strategies to survive in both up and down markets.
