Very few careers can offer you the freedom, flexibility and income that day trading does. As a day trader, you can live and work anywhere in the world. You can decide when to work and when not to work. You only answer to yourself. That is the life of the successful day trader. Many people aspire to it, but very few succeed. Day trading is not gambling or an online poker game. To be successful at day trading you need the right tools and you need to be motivated, to work hard, and to persevere.At the beginning of my trading career, a pharmaceutical company announced some positive results for one of its drugs and its stock jumped from $1 to over $55 in just two days. Two days! I was a beginner at the time. I was the amateur. I purchased 1,000 shares at $4 and sold them at over $10. On my very first beginner trade, I made $6,000 in a matter of minutes.It was pure luck. I honestly had no idea what I was doing. Within a few weeks I had lost that entire $6,000 by making mistakes in other trades. I was lucky. My first stupid trade was my lucky one. Other people are not so lucky. For many, their first mistake is their last trade because in just a few minutes, in one simple trade, they lose all of the money they had worked so hard for. With their account at zero, they walk away from day trading.As a new day trader you should never lose sight of the fact that you are competing with professional traders on Wall Street and other experienced traders around the world who are very serious, highly equipped with advanced education and tools, and most importantly, committed to making money.Day trading is not gambling. It is not a hobby. You must approach day trading very, very seriously. As such, I wake up early, go for a run, take a shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, and fire up my trading station before the markets open in New York. I am awake. I am alert. I am motivated when I sit down and start working on the list of stocks I will watch that day. This morning routine has tremendously helped my mental preparation for coming into the market. Whatever your routine is, starting the morning in a similar fashion will pay invaluable dividends.Rolling out of bed and throwing water on your face 15 minutes before the opening bell just does not give you sufficient time to be prepared for the market's opening. Sitting at your computer in your pajamas or underwear does not put you in the right mindset to attack the market. I know. I've experienced all of these scenarios.In How to Day Trade for a Living, I will show you how you too can take control over your life and have success in day trading on the stock market. I love teaching. It's my passion. In this book, I use simple and easy to understand words to explain the strategies and concepts you need to know to launch yourself into day trading on the stock market. This book is definitely NOT a difficult, technical, hard to understand, complicated and complex guide to the stock market. It's concise. It's practical. It's written for everyone. You can learn how to beat Wall Street at its own game. And, as a purchaser of my book, you will also receive a membership in my community of day traders at www.vancouver-traders.com. You can monitor my screen in real time, watch me trade the strategies explained in his book, and ask questions of me and other traders in our private chat room.I invite you to join me in the world of day trading. I'm a real person who you can connect with. I'm not just a photograph here on the Amazon site. I love what I do. You can follow my blog post under Author Updates on my Author page on Amazon. It's honest. You'll see I lose some days. You can read the reviews of my book. I know you will learn much about day trading and the stock market from studying my book. You can join at no cost and with no obligation my community of day traders at www.vancouver-traders.com. You can ask us questions. Practical, hands-on knowledge. That's How to Day Trade for a Living.

Success as a day trader will only come to 10 percent of those who try. It’s important to understand why most traders fail so that you can avoid those mistakes. The day traders who lose money in the market are losing because of a failure to either choose the right stocks, manage risk, and find proper entries or follow the rules of a proven strategy. In this book, I will teach you trading techniques that I personally use to profit from the market. Before diving into the trading strategies, we will first build your foundation for success as a trader by discussing the two most important skills you can possess. I like to say that a day trader is two things: a hunter of volatility and a manager of risk. I’ll explain how to find predictable volatility and how to manage your risk so you can make money and be right only 50 percent of the time. We turn the tables by putting the odds for success in your favor. By picking up this book, you show dedication to improve your trading. This by itself sets you apart from the majority of beginner traders.

Learn A Powerful Day Trading Strategy In Less Than 60 Minutes A profitable trading strategy is the most important tool for a trader. This book explains a powerful trend-following day trading strategy for trading futures, stocks, ETFs and Forex. "The Simple Strategy" Is Easy To Understand And To Trade The Simple Strategy is very popular amongst traders for the following reasons: Clear Entry Rules When trading "The Simple Strategy," there's no second-guessing. As you will see, the entry rules are based on indicators - and these rules are black and white. Either the MACD is above the zero line or it isn't. And either the RSI is above 70 or it isn't. The entries are easy to identify and execute. That's why this strategy is called "The Simple Strategy" Clear Exit Rules When trading "The Simple Strategy" you'll know when to exit even before you enter the trade. So, you know exactly how much to risk on any given trade which is essential for precise position sizing and money management. Plus, you can put the trade on auto-pilot once your entry order is filled. This keeps trade management to a minimum. It's easy and simple. Taking advantage of small intraday trends These days trends are short-lived. The times when you could enter the market in the morning and exit the market in the afternoon are over. These days the markets can turn on a dime. Low trading commissions and computerized trading have destroyed the nice and long intraday trends. However, with "The Simple Strategy" you can take advantage of the small intraday trends that we are seeing in today's markets. You don't need a sophisticated trading software If you want to trade "The Simple Strategy," you only need a charting software with "basic" charting capabilities: Your charting software needs to be able to plot RANGE BARS, BOLLINGER BANDS, MACD and RSI. More than 90% of the charting software packages that are available today have these capabilities. There's no need to buy any proprietary indicators or expensive charting software! In short: "The Simple Strategy" can greatly simplify your trading. *** WARNING: This Book Is NOT For Everybody! *** Do NOT buy this book if... ... You Are Looking For The "Holy Grail" Because it doesn't exist! When trading "The Simple Strategy," there will be losses! Losses are part of our business as traders. The good news: If you follow the rules of "The Simple Strategy," then you will make more money on your profitable trades than you lose on your losing trades. In fact, the risk/reward ratio of this strategy is 1: 1.5, so you can expect to make $150 for every $100 you risk. ... You Want To Automate Your Trading Strategies "The Simple Strategy" will give you clear entry signals, but it's up to YOU to decide if you want to take the signal. As an example, I personally do NOT trade right into a major report. And I only trade the first two hours after the markets open, since most trends occur during this time. Makes sense?
