Hello Jordan,

Day trader refers to a person who deals in securities, and trades them in order to turn a quick profit.

In order to become a day trader it is necessary to invest a certain amount of time and money. A good trader also conducts a thorough research of markets and securities. 

In the end it is necessary to utilize all of these resources and knowledge and come up with a trading plan and strategy. It also involves keeping mind on finances, looking to invest smart, and to search for safe revenue in the beginning and then expand slowly.

Hi Jordan,

 

In order to become a good day trader, you are going to need a lot of patience, education and discipline. As with any other trading technique, you will have to make decisions on which markets you plan to trade, with how much capital and define your risk management strategy. 

 

In essence, the process of day trading involves a process of buying and selling securities in a single trading day. This technique can be applied in any market as it's not tied to a particular asset class. As all trades are opened and closed in a single trading session, day traders usually focus on smaller market moves and tend to open a higher number of trades with bigger positions. 

 

Due to its design, day traders focus on events or news that move the market on a daily basis. Therefore, scheduled news releases on economic statistics, CPI, GDPs, unemployment rate, etc., have the ability to move the market. Hence, day traders try and anticipate in which market direction will the price action travel and then hoping to capitalize on that anticipation.
