I've seen stories on the internet, people got rich from only a few thousands by trading stocks. I've seen some trading academies claim offering courses that can help you to make a living by just trading stocks and all you need is a few thousand bucks to enter the market.
I've attended one of those courses but didn't sign up because I will have to pay a few thousands to take the full course. They were showing the income statements of those who took the courses and become rich by trading stocks.
Are those stories for real? I am sure it's possible to get rich by trading stocks with only a few thousands, but what's the likelihood that you can succeed, is it just pure luck or you can certainly do it if you have the required knowledge and skills?
