The world of trading can be treacherous and practically impossible to keep up with. However, with the recent introduction of commision-free trading platforms like Robinhood, participating in the stock market on a regular basis has become realistic for more people (like me!). After getting used to the terminology and platform, I realized the potential and power services like Robinhood provide with regards to taking control of your financials. But, there was one problem. I never quite felt like I was making informed decisions. Without confidence in my trades, I felt as though I was gambling, rather than trading.
