- Martha Stokes, CMT Trading Philosophy
Martha first became interested in the stock market at the tender age of 12.
She was already an experienced entrepreneur having started her first business with her brother at the age of 9 years old.
“I remember the first time I heard the term ‘stock.' I was sitting on the floor next to my Grandfather who was studying his stock prices from a newspaper. I was curious so I asked him what a stock was. His explanation was lengthy but I was hooked from that point on.”
Martha’s Grandfather had survived the Great Depression by buying stocks when everyone else was losing money.
The favorite story she tells her students is how she convinced her very skeptical Grandfather to teach his granddaughter how to invest in the stock market. Having learned about investments from her Grandfather, his style and approach continues to influence how Martha teaches her students today.
“The first thing I always impart on my students is it is not about making money in the stock market. That’s the easy part. I always kind of chuckle when I see one of those 'testimonials' that are made right after a trader’s seminar because I know that beginner’s luck is a big part of that testimonial. But what happens a week from then, or a month later when the market changes?
The real challenge for stock traders and investors is learning how not to lose money in the market. So I begin by teaching them all the things every other stock seminar ignores.
I teach them the facts of the stock market. The nitty-gritty stuff no one else wants to mention because they dont have a solution.
If you learn early on how to avoid losses, how to trade properly, and how to protect your capital, then you will be find success in the stock market. That’s what it’s all about, making money and keeping it.”
