Day Trading - 5 Important Factors You Should Know About Before Venturing Into Day Trading

Dec 25, 2007
Winning is not something that comes by fluke. Whatever the business that you are in, planning, patience and diligence is what gets you there, and day trading is no exception to this.

Day trading definitely is risky business, and that is why many traders fear getting into it. There are chances you will lose a huge amount of money in a second, just as there are chances you will make big profits as well. As an indication of profits you have made in the day, a green circle appears on your card, and that's what one loves to see! If you've made losses, they are indicated on your card by the appearance of a red circle, and that means bad news. If you often see these red circles, you need a new plan of action quickly.

Here are some ideas for you if you often see those reds:

Get yourself a mentor

Its great having a guru, someone who has experience in the business of the day trading. It must be someone who knows the ups and downs of the trade . He should be ready to let you in on his secrets. In addition,he needs to be an enthusiastic guide as he puts you on track..

Look for the following factors when you are getting into the business of day trading:

1. Monetary Resources. This doesn't mean you must be an extremely rich individual. You simply need an adequate capital to see you through your initial struggle. In addition, you must also have other means of income. A back up is always good when you are venturing into new territory.

2. Experience. You need a guru who can pass on some of his experience on to you. But it is unwise to rely solely on the judgments on another. Start applying what you learn to make your own decisions.

3. Personality. You must be a go getter and be bold when you enter this competitive business. It is not for the shy and the lazy for sure.

4. Knowledge Gather all possible information and useful on the subject. Get some good books and journals on the trading business. In your time off, look on the internet to get updates on the market. From the information gathered, it is important to select what applies to the stocks you have in hand.

An overload of information is way better than having limited information. Ensure that the information that you receive is applied in your trading.

5. Willingness To Take Risks If you are over cautious it may well work against you. Take a chance here and there, but remember not to go past your personal limit. The best knowledge that one can get is through first hand experience, even if it is a trial and error method.

Try your hand at different strategies to pinpoint what suits you the most.

There is a solution to every problem. If you begin trading with an attitude of positivity and have been properly prepared then you can avoid noticed red circles on the chart.
