How much money can someone make in the stock market

How much money can one make in the stock market - My name’s mark and i did trading, i had to send identification, such as my driving licence and a utility bill, and once i sent them in i could start trading i payed £250 to start it up but my trading adviser left me to it, and never helped me, i contacted him a few time to asked for help on some aspects of how to trade but he never got back to me so i took a chance and went alone but i lost all my money i put in which now as made me very weary of starting it back up. Reality, the secret to making money from buying stocks and investing in bonds was summed up by the late father of value investing benjamin graham when he wrote, "the real money in investing will have to be made – as most of it has been in the past – not out of buying and selling, but out of owning and holding securities, receiving interest and dividends, and benefiting from their long-term increase in value. Forex and futures markets can also be traded 24-hours a day, which in my opinion allows risk to be controlled more precisely–especially if you do decide to hold positions overnight–because (unlike stocks) there aren’t any gaps in the price from one day to the next (except on weekends, but that can’t be avoided in any of these markets). You listened to the financial media or investing press, you might get the mistaken impression that making money from buying stocks is a matter of "picking" the right stocks, trading rapidly, being glued to a computer screen or television set, and spending your days obsessing about what the dow jones industrial average or s&p 500 did recently.
