1. What is a stock?
A stock is a symbol of a company traded in an exchange. Each company is given a symbol to identify it. Facebook Inc symbol for example is FB. If you want to know any company symbol just google it.
2. What is trading stocks?
Trading stocks is a business activity of traders who buy and sell stocks ( shares of of a given company).
3. Why do people trade stocks?
People trade stocks to make money. Let say you buy 100 shares of Facebook Inc at $100 a share. If Facebook stock goes up to $110. So you will make $10 for each share you bought. So your profit is $1000 (100 shares x $10 )= $1000 profits.
4. Where can I buy shares of a given company?
In order to buy any company shares, you should open an account at a brokerage firm.
5. What is a brokerage firm?
A brokerage firm is a company that lets you buy stocks/shares from the exchange. So its role is to help you own shares of a company after paying a commission.
6. What is a commission?
A commission is the amount of money that you always pay when you buy or sell your stock/shares.Your broker will cut this commission automatically when buy or sell.
7. What else a broker can cut from my account?
A broker can cut other fees than a commission. For example if you have a margin account he will charge you interest rate on this borrowed money.
8. How many kinds of accounts exist?
Mainly there are two major accounts. One is called cash account. The second one is called margin account.
9. What is a cash account?
A cash account is simply your money that you put into your account. Let say you open an account then transfer $5000 to your account. This money is yours. So they call it cash account?
10. What is a margin account?
We said before that a cash account is your money only. let say it is $5000. Now if you need more money, you can ask your broker to lend you money. In general he will double your money. So your margin account would be $10,000. $5000 is your own money, the other $5000 is your broker money. You can use it, but you need to pay interest rate for that broker's money.
11. Why traders use margin account?
There are two major reasons. First is to double your money in order to buy more stocks.
The second reason is to be able to sell short stocks.
12. What is selling short?
To understand what is selling short, lets explain what does it mean to go long. Going long is to buy a stock thinking that this stock will go up in the future.
On the contrary, selling short is when you think the stock will go down. So you sell the stocks that your broker lend you. Then when the stock goes down and you are right. You buy them back. Therefore you make a profit on the down side.
13. How to apply for a broker?
First you should compare brokers and see which one has the best and cheapest commissions and fees. Check this link on how to select the best broker .
14. Is trading stocks like gambling?
No, trading stocks is a well known business activity.Professional traders make money. Beginners gamble.
15. How to be professional trader?
To be a professional trader you need to learn how to trade. This process can take from one year to 3 years. You need to have money to trade well. You need discipline and patience.

17. Is trading stocks risky?
Yes, trading stocks is a risky business. So you need to learn before you commit your money in the market. If you can't afford to lose money, trading is not for you.
18. If I take your training, can I be a professional trader?
To be a professional trader depends on you. To make it easier for you to understand. Let us ask this question. Are all the students in the same classroom succeed to be PHDs? you will say:"Noway all the students will be PHds." we will ask:"Why" You will say:"Each student is different. Some students work harder than others. So the best ones succeed, other no."
We think that you answered your question by yourself.
19. Is there a way not to lose any money in any trade?
No. Any money you put in the market, you are risking it.
20. Is there a way to minimize the risk in trading stocks?
Yes of course. You can use a stop loss.
21. What is a stop loss?
A stop loss is an order that you put after you buy a stock where you want to exit the trade and sell at a given price. Let us give you an example. You bought 200 shares of facebook Inc symbol FB at $100. Then you put a stop loss order to exit the trade at $99. Now if the stock goes down to $99 you sell facebook shares. Your loss is $100.
22. What if I dont use a stop loss. What will happen?
If you dont use a stop loss, your loss can be big. Let say we take the example above. After buying facebook at $100. You think that facebook will go up, unfortunately facebook goes down to $99 the next day. sicne you did not put a stop loss, you still think that facebook will go back to $100.
Unfortunately, facebook after few days goes down to $90. So your loss is $1000. So $1000 is a big loss. If you continue having big losses, your account will be wiped out.
Thats why professional traders use stop loss when they are wrong in the direction of the stock. Beginners are not disciplined thats why they are always losers.

1. " Hi Karim,
Just want to say awesome work on all your videos & subscription. Have learnt a ton of info! Have only just signed up with subscription membership. So much more to learn yet. Love it! I have bought a lot of your videos and been studying them every day ( when family all in bed ) and being practicing your methods. I have in about 5 to 6 months turned $20,000 into just over $56,000. Still need to work on my money management though I think. Final balance accurately is now $56,848.12. And just sold last stock yesterday. I am only trading stocks on the Australian market. But am in the process of getting an international account set up so I can trade the U.S Exchange. Anyway thanks again for all your hard work and sharing it. Your a good man!
2. "Hi Sir,
First, I want to thank you for the amazing content you've put together. I am a member of your weekly search subscription and have bought a few levels. I've turned 2000 Euro into 2482 Euro in 3 weeks and my only losses happened with the Brexit which I minimized thanks to the stop loss principle. Thanks again for everything, you are one of the only people I trust in this mad world of trading/affiliation/marketing/scams. If you ever start a weekly subscription for practice on managing stop losses and trailing stops I would be very interested!
Keep up to good work,
Joao de Lima
3. " Before getting Karim's 10 levels i would watch the news for 8 hours or more per day. Some days í made $100 some days i lost $200. Then i got into a guru that told me when to buy and sell. But soon lost too much too mention in 3 months. I had been watching Karim's youtube videos maybe over 50 hours at least. Slowly buying his levels till í finally got all 10. In the last month í have made over $800 and lost when í brake his rules or put a stop loss too close. I am sorry i rather not mention how much í invested. (i think its a personal thing) I can clearly see that his strategy works through experience and by looking at previous stocks continue to go up through the past years. Through trial and error like he says, by following his rules, and with quick feedback i receive by email when I email him (over 100 emails), í am confident $800 will continue to grow and im glad i have an opportunity to have this as a future career. Thank you Karim. And any body thinking of buying programs DO KARIM'S FIRST you will see results, understand clearly, and easiest maybe 30 mins- 1 hour per day when í choose. Thanks again
4. "Dear Karim,
My name is Emilio, I'm Italian but I live in Malta, a small island in the Mediterranean sea. I am an entrepreneur and I have my own Company. My initial business field was hospitality and event organization, but I have always been interested in investing, and in trading. I had no idea about stock trading so what I normally did was to invest my money for long time, typically in Government Bonds. After some years, I had a very good offer for selling my business and I decided to sell. During that process I started to search information about trading on internet and after a lot of searching I found your YouTube Channel. I remember like it was yesterday the first video I watched. At that time I did not understand anything about stocks trading and stock market. Than I began to follow you and watch all your videos on your YouTube Channel. After I bought your book and all the levels of your course. Thanks to your teaching I started slowly practicing and I began to understand more and more. After one year studying, two months ago I started trading stocks with my Company. It was not easy, I put a lot of effort to overcome my limits using the PC, the Chart, etc. I practiced a lot as you suggest and I also find very useful your monthly subscription: even if now I know how to search for stocks, thanks to your comments I learn every week something new. Every time, I have some questions, I write you an email, and you always give me precious and useful answers. And last Friday, as you know, I got $1200 profit in one trade and it was a pleasure for me to inform you immediately. I still have a lot of things to learn about stock market, but I'm sure that with your help I can do it. So thanks a lot for everything, for you teaching about trading and also about life. Dreaming is important and everyone must have a dream. But you don't sell dreams, this is the reason why I esteem you a lot. Kind Regards,
For years I tried to learn trading from other people without any real success. Anyone can make a hundred one day and lose it the next. I have a good career, but there is little time to do the things I really want to do so my goal was to quit and trade and be free. I was not getting closer to my goal and after many trading disasters I bought all of your lessons and watched each one twice. I'm going to go back to them in the future and watch them again. Essentially, everything anyone needs to become a successful trader is covered quite well in the lessons. Before I started using your strategies, I used to find stocks from articles on the yahoo financial website, but not any more. Your search criteria works excellent. I also never used a stop loss which was another big mistake. I used to sell with only a small profit or a huge loss but not any more. I see the whole market completely different now. In only 4 months, I am up over $38,000. I cannot believe it myself. Sometimes I go to my brokerage account and make sure that it's real. Thanks for putting together the excellent training class.
