Stock Trading Lessons for Beginners – Module 2 – Video

Stock Trading Lessons for Beginners is part of the Continuous Education element of my advocacy, Responsible Trading.  In this connection, I am pleased to share these with you. All these lessons are shared without cost to you.  All of these are free.


Happy Halloween!  How did you find my first  TRT-POV on Module 1?  Please give me your feedback by writing your comments on my website.

Actually, it was a labor of love on my part.  It was my first time to do it, and I had to contend with rehearsing my timing and turning the recording of the Powerpoint application  button on and off while I was speaking alone in front of my laptop.  Personally, I prefer speaking directly to an audience as I usually do when I am invited as speaker during public seminars.

For your proper guidance, whenever I post the video from Cloud9 Media Limited, the title of my article will end with – Video.  Whenever I post my own, my article will end with – TRT-POV.

Ok, let’s go to  Module 2.




After viewing this video, you should be able to know the following:

1. The different types of Charts – line, price bars, and candlestick
2. Why candlestick charting has become the most popular charting method
3. The importance of viewing charts on different time frames
4. What is the difference between arithmetic scale and logarithmic scale



1.  These lessons are not intended to be a substitute for the seminars offered by your broker/s but intended to serve as basic foundation to enable you to better appreciate the seminars offered once you have access to them.

2.  Just like today, I will post the videos and outline the Learning Objectives every Saturday. As a value added, I will post my TRT-POV, (The Responsible Trader’s Point of View)  every Thursday of the following week,  to annotate and explain the trading lessons in a simple and understandable way.

Based on PM’s I received (most of them are in “Taglish” a combination of Tagalog and English, ) In order to enhance better understanding of the topic discussed,  I will try to use “Taglish”  in my TRT-POV, (The Responsible Trader’s Point of View) whenever I can, to be able to better relate to my readers who are mostly Filipino.

3. After posting this video, , I expect you  to view and try to understand the topic discussed and do your own research to enhance your  learning experience.  When I post my TRT-POV, (The Responsible Trader’s Point of View)  you should then try to compare what I am sharing with what you have  learned. plus your own personal research.   We will repeat the whole process until we finish the whole course.

4.  Learning is better when done in short durations with breaks in between. The learning curve looks like this.

Rate of learning starts slowly then gradually builds up where it becomes fun and enjoyable. After reaching a certain level it  decelerates to the point of boredom.

If you divide your study periods into shorter durations with breaks in-bteween, you are going to double the point where learning is fun and enjoyable and you will be able to retain more materials in your brain.
