The Long Run

Whatever percentage you choose to place on a single day trade, the idea is to ensure that no single trade is really going to significantly affect your day trading float, positively or negatively. You need to position yourself so that you can endure long strings of losses, and maintain your day trading system.

An experienced day trader will focus on the trade entry points, but also on the trade exit points. As long as you consistently follow the rules layed out by a well designed trading plan, you can count on steadily growing your trading account.

Every successful day trader must be flexible, alert and feisty. Many day traders make dozens of trades every market day hoping to capture profits that arise from small intraday price fluctuations. A day trader may sell a stock if it goes down only two or three cents.

Day traders aim to make small profits on a large number of ‘intra-day’ transactions. Don’t begin your day trading with money that you can not afford to lose. You can start Day Trading with as little as $750 if you decide to trade using a spreadbetting account rather than a standard broker.

Day traders, both institutional and individual, play an important role in the marketplace by keeping the markets efficient and liquid. Many day traders end up losing a lot of money because they fail to make trades that meet their own criteria. Day trading is like running any other kind of business. It requires planning and expertize.
