Ethics of Day Trading

While day trading is neither illegal nor is it unethical, it can be highly risky. As a trader you will probably fall into two main categories, traders who like to trade the breakout and traders who like to join the trend once established. Most day traders have their favorite markets.

You don’t need to know everything about day trading to succeed as a day trader. More important for the day-trader than others is to have the proper ‘team’ in place. Keep in mind a day-trader with a computer and access to the Internet already has access to a world of information.

Some day traders might buy and sell stocks in minutes, but might also hold some overnight or longer. During the day trading, a day trader will quickly buy a large number of stocks at a time and sell it once they see the stock gain within the day. Some of the more commonly day-traded financial instruments are stocks, stock options, currencies, and a host of futures contracts such as equity index futures, interest-rate futures, and commodity futures.

An investor needs to have a system that helps him to be prepared for all scenarios of a trade.

With the unlimited potential to earn of daytrading, comes the possibility of great financial loss. The Forex market is the largest financial market in the world with average daily trading of the currencies going over US$1.6 trillion. Day trading doesn’t mean trading every day. Day trading simply means not holding any position beyond the current trading day.
