In the stock market, day-to-day trading includes the quick buying and selling of stocks regularly. This strategy is used, minute to minute, second to second, to secure fast gains from the constant shifts in stock prices. Rarely would a day trader stay in trade during the night and into the next day. In a matter of minutes, certain trades are reached and exited.
The key question that most people ask is simple: ‘Is it essential to sit all day long at a computer watching the markets to be a good day trader?’
The answer is no. Sitting at a computer all day long is not important. There are some variables to consider, but in general, trading while everyone else is trading is the law of day trading. Trade in the morning, in other words.
Day trading is risky, as with all financial investments; it is one of the riskiest ways of trading out there. Owing to the conduct of the economy, which is entirely predictable, stock prices rise or fall. Day traders easily buy and sell shares in the hopes of making profits within minutes and seconds of owning certain same stocks. Easy in principle to do, harder in reality to do.
