Here are two suggestions:|
1) Read "Fooled by Randomness" and "The Black Swan" both by Nassim Taleb.
They will help you to never think you have a sure thing and always be careful of comments, data and statistics. Listen carefully to Genesis. You will find the down and dirty practical side of Taleb in his comments.
2) Get a good program to play Blackjack and learn the basic rules. This is similar to playing the market and you can actually win at Blackjack statistically. Play it as fast as you can. You will learn that you can make a lot of money quickly. You will also learn the sobering fact that you can lose a lot quickly. Winning has infinite possibility, losing is drastically limited by your financial holdings and your bets.
