Starting

First one might be a little obvious, simply start working towards becoming a day trader. Far to often new traders over analyze what they want to do and it turns into a paralyzing event. Where they make no progress and the dream quickly dies. Now it should go without saying not to do anything risky or risk your lively hood on making this dream happen but you first need to start!


This can be done in many different forms, by watching YouTube videos on what day trading is, downloading a free trail from NinjaTrader, reading blogs anything you can get a hold of to figure out what day trading is about.


Word of caution, many social media pages and YouTube videos do not show the realities or what day trading really is, be very cautious not to get sucked into this type of thinking.
