First Months of Trading

Day traders typically suffer severe financial losses in their first months of trading, and many never graduate to profit-making status. Web sites and book stores are loaded with day trading advice.

Day trading is an investment tactic that does online daily stock trading with a relatively short investment. Investors and traders around the world are looking to the Forex market as a new speculation opportunity. Any day trader should know up front how much they need to make to cover expenses and break even.

Not all stocks are suitable for day trading. In forex day trading, you don’t need to do any marketing or selling or internet promotion to succeed. Trading successfully is by no means a simple matter.

Day-trading is not easy, but as a business, it can provide the American dream. The key to consistently profitable day trading is having lots of different trades available. Remember that “educational” seminars, classes, and books about day trading may not be objective.

It is vital that day traders have access to real time market quotes and activity because fluctuations in price can make or break a day trader if an order is delayed only seconds. Daytraders will tell you that raw cunning and nerves of steel are the key ingredients of their success. Day traders typically hold stocks anywhere from only a few seconds to several hours but they never keep stocks overnight. While day trading has become popular, the characterizing of day trading as another mode of investing may be overstated.
