A lot of people are scared of trading the market.
They think of it like gambling or sports betting - once you lose your luck, you lose your money.
And the truth is that many people aren't successful as traders. In fact, today, I'm going to tell you about two traders that lost their life savings on a single trade.
But that's not because of bad luck.
It's because they didn't follow two simple rules.
See, trading is easy. But those that simply follow their gut and trade like they're "betting on the black" will end up losing it all sooner or later.
That's not going to be you. You can trade your way to millions of dollars, financial security, the life of your dreams...
You just need to follow these two rules. They can turn any novice trader into a successful one...
These Two Rules Will Save You from Losing All of Your Money
If you've been with me for a while, then you might remember F.S. Comeau, the Canadian trader that lost $2.25 million of his $2.5 million inheritance trading.

The man in the wolf mask was so confident that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) was about to announce poor earnings that he invested his last $250,000 on bearish option positions. Then, he waited for the announcement and his million-dollar payday.
