Many people get into day trading because they want to make money quickly. However, most new traders are not successful and as much as 90% of new traders suffer big losses!
There is an expensive price tag for beginner’s investment tools like forex bots, free trial accounts, and some crypto-trading apps that advertise themselves as easy ways to start investing.
These beginners’ tools may seem attractive due to their low cost, but most don’t work and can actually hurt your financial situation.
It is important to do your research and determine if this type of product is right for you.
Day trading isn’t necessarily limited to professional level investors. There are many strategies that anyone can use to reap the benefits of the time in markets.
The key is being familiar with the market and how it works.
Platforms to day trade on

Trading platforms that allow you to practice with fake money (demo account) are the best way to start learning how to day trade. This way, you don’t have to risk any of your own money,
and you will get lots of insights into the market by learning from your mistakes.
There are several good free trading apps and websites where you can experiment with buying and selling without actually spending any cash!
By experimenting with no cost, this gives you an opportunity to practise day trading strategies to see what works for you and what kind of results you can expect.
By practicing with fake money on a demo, you risk no money while figuring out if this is truly a career path for you.
Here are my top 2 broker recommendations:
Know your risk of losing everything

The term ‘day trading’ has become very popular in recent years, with many people starting their journey as a day trader. While some are able to make good money from it,
others lose all of their investments because they think they can day trade without learning from an expert.
There is an increasing amount of scam artists out there who take advantage of traders by offering easy profit opportunities that can quickly vanish.
They may even have you investing more and more money to keep the game going!
It is important to be aware of such scams so you can protect yourself and avoid getting involved in fraudulent activity. Many of my subscribers only discover my services after suffering a big loss or being scammed.
Only then do they realise they need the help of an expert mentor.
Would you drive a car, ride a motorbike, operate a machine, rewire a house, make an investment, or start any business without learning from someone with experience?
NO!!! So why do people think they can start day trading just because they open a trading account?
Owning a racing car does not make you a racing driver.
Opening a trading account does not make you a professional trader.
Sitting in a cockpit does not make you an airline pilot!!
If you do not learn from a trader with decades of experience you will eventually blow all the money in your account.
Learn how to create a trading plan

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when investing is not having a clear goal. They follow tips & trade ideas from the so called ‘gurus’ on social media, who actually have very little experience.
They may have made a profit for a few months & then try to sell their services to new traders who are impressed by the short term results. Usually the inexperienced trader is taking far too much risk.
This is a disastrous strategy & is almost guaranteed to lead to heavy losses eventually.

Day trading is not for everyone, which is why most people do not pursue it as a career, but some are successful enough to create a second revenue stream and Jason Sen has helped dozens of traders achieve that goal.
By learning simple technical analysis techniques and focusing on one or two simple strategies it is certainly possible to build a regular income without experiencing high levels of stress.
The most important thing to do is learn the basic rules & trading techniques before you risk any of your own hard earned money. Remember, you are battling against highly experienced traders & more importantly,
investment banks & hedge funds with an endless supply of billions of dollars & the latest technology. These professionals have software programs that help them find profitable trades almost automatically.
How can you expect to be a consistently profitable day trader in the market, when you have these huge organisations trying to take money from retail traders?
There systems have been developed over decades & can process more information than you know exists. With all this information, the system will tell the investment bank or hedge fund trader when it is best to enter into or exit a position
and how big of a position should be held. All of this is done quickly so that the trader does not overcommit themselves to ensure success.
That is where most beginners often run into issues.
Take the time to learn
There are many ways to day trade, not all of them work for you or can make you big money. Just because someone else is doing something does not mean it is the best way for you to go about it. By trying out different types of trading strategies,
you will know if they fit your style and what works for you. It all depends on how much you have to invest, how much time you have to trade, what times of the day are available to you & what other distractions you have during the day
There are several schools that offer courses on how to start investing or begin day trading. Some focus more on technical analysis while others emphasize fundamental analysis.
Both have their benefits and drawbacks so do some research and find one that fits you!
Many people make a good living as traders by keeping an eye on the markets and taking advantage of inefficiencies. It is definitely not easy, but there are enough successful traders who made a fortune through this method that it is possible to do it too.
Stay aware of the market
As we mentioned before, day trading isn’t for everyone. There are professionals who make good money from it, but this doesn’t mean you can’t do it well yourself!
To be successful as a trader, you have to stay informed about what is happening in the market. This includes listening to financial news programs, reading business newspapers and investing websites,
and watching stock market broadcasts or events.
