10 Golden Rules for Blowing Out Your Trading Account

  1. Always use the maximum amount of leverage available.  They wouldn’t give it to you if you weren’t supposed to use it.

  2. Buy every dip, your stocks will always come back.

  3. Make sure to meet every margin call.

  4. Don’t look at the charts, that’s yesterday’s news.

  5. If you have other issues going on in your life, don’t wimp out! – KEEP TRADING!

  6. Reverse splits are a goldmine.

  7. Load up going into earnings.

  8. Follow [insert name of financial guru] cause he knows his shit!

  9. The market is your mortal enemy. Teach it that you’re the boss.

  10. Remember the trader’s motto, “it can’t go any lower.”
