Once you determine which business cycle the economy is currently in you can start researching for a trade. It is best to have some sort of a system in place that will be used before EACH trade. Here is a simple 5 Step formula to help get you started. 5 Steps to Investing Online: 1. Find a stock This is the most obvious and most difficult step in stock trading. With well over 10000 stocks to trade a good rule of thumb to consider is time of the year. For example as I write this it is the beginning of spring. It would make sense to consider stocks that traditionally make runs or slide if you are bearish during this time of year. 2. Fundamental Analysis Many short term traders may disagree with the need to do ANY Fundamental Analysis however knowing the chart patterns from the past and the news regarding the stock is relevant. An example would be earnings season. If you are planning on playing a stock to the upside that has missed its earnings target the last 3 quarters caution could be in order. 3. Technical Analysis This is the part where indicators come in. Stochastics the MACD volume moving averages RSI CCI support levels resistance levels and all the rest. The batch of indicators you choose whether lagging or leading may depend on where you get your education. Keep it simple when first starting out using too many indicators in the beginning is a ticket to the

slide 3:

land of big losses. Get very comfortable using one or two indicators first. Learn their intricacies and youll be sure to make better trades. 4. Follow your picks Once you have placed a few stock trades you should be managing them properly. If the trade is meant to be a short term trade watch it closely for your exit signal. If its a swing trade watch for the indicators that tell you the trend is shifting. If its a long term trade remember to set weekly or monthly checkups on the stock. Use this time to keep abreast of the news determine your price targets set stop losses and keep an eye on other stocks that you may want to own as well. 5. The big picture As the saying goes all ships rise and fall with the tide. Knowing which sectors are heating up stacks the chips in your favor. For example if you are long expecting price to go up on an oil stock and most of the oil sector is rising then more likely than not you are on the right side of the trade. Several trading platforms will give you access to sector-wide information so that you can get the education you need.

Day trading the stock market involves the rapid buying and selling of stocks on a day-to-day basis. This technique is used to secure quick profits from the constant changes in stock values minute to minute second to second. It is rare that a day trader will remain in a trade over the course of a night into the next day. These trades are entered and exited in a matter of minutes. The main question that most people ask when it comes to is simple: ​‘is it necessary to sit at a computer watching the markets ALL day long in order to be a successful day trader’ The answer is no. It’s not necessary to sit at a computer all day long. There are a number of factors to consider but generally the rule of day trading is to trade when everyone else is trading. In other words trade in the morning. As with all financial investments day trading is risky – in fact it’s one of the riskiest forms of trading out there. The stock prices rise or fall according to the behaviour of the market which is entirely unpredictable. Day traders buy and sell shares rapidly in the hopes of gaining profits within the minutes and seconds they own those particular stocks. Simple to do in theory harder to do in practice.

slide 5:

If you are constrained by a small amount of capital you may not be able to buy large amounts of a stock but buying only a small amount can add to the risk of a loss. And obviously it is impossible to predict with certainty which stocks will result in profits and which in losses. Even the best of traders must learn to accept both outcomes. It’s also important to know that in day trading it is the number of shares rather than the value of shares that should be the focus. If you day trade you WILL face losses but even for the more expensive stocks the loss should be marginal because prices do not usually fluctuate to an extreme degree over the course of just one day. The day trading industry deals in a large variety of stocks and shares. Here are just a few: Growth-Buying Shares ​– shares made from profit which continue to grow in value. Eventually these shares will begin to decline in price and an experienced trader can usually predict the future of this type of share. Small Caps – ​ shares of companies which are on the rise and show no signs of stopping. Although these shares are generally cheap they are a very risky investment for day traders. You’d be safer to go with large caps and/or mid-caps which are much more secure and stable thanks to a premium. Unloved Stocks ​ – company stock that has not performed well in the past. Traders buy these shares in the hopes of generating profits if and when the stock rises in value. As with small caps unloved stocks can be a risky choice for day traders. These examples are NOT your only options when it comes to day trading stocks. The best way to determine which type of stock is right for you is to invest some time for careful research a knowledge of market patterns a solid strategy and a disciplined trading plan. The key to successful day trading is to be prepared. Know as much as

slide 6:

possible about the industry before you begin actually trading. You need to learn to trade ONLY when the market gives the right signals and ONLY when the volume of activity in the market supports a successful

Anyone who knows anything about stock trading or day trading has heard the term ‘trading strategy.’ A trading strategy is a simple concept – it’s basically the roadmap that a trader follows while trading the markets. A trading strategy is governed by a set of rules that do not deviate for anything other than market action. Faithfully following a sound trading strategy will provide you with your greatest weapon against your worst enemy – your emotions. With a trading strategy you’ll know exactly when to buy and when to sell regardless of what the market does or what your emotions are telling you. About Day Trading Strategies Every profitable trader will tell you that the key to trading success is an effective reliable trading strategy. You as a trader need to identify a winning system implement it and have the discipline to stick to it. Though it would be possible for you to develop a unique trading strategy it probably wouldn’t be that practical. The best – and most efficient – approach would be to adopt an existing strategy one which has been used by other traders in the industry and which has already proven to be successful. Just remember whether the strategy you’re using is your own or someone else’s it is critical that you have a thorough understanding of it especially its entry and exit signals. Do not fall prey to the pitfalls

slide 8:

of following untested trading “advice” especially the free advice available in numerous trading forums and chat rooms. Advice that you receive in these types of venues is likely to be opinion rather than fact and in the market opinions are not worth anything. What you NEED is a proven and effective ​trading strategy ​ one that will work in any market under any market condition. Because of this need for solid strategies more and more traders are looking for trading success through technical approaches to the markets. One of these approaches is ​Welles Wilder’s RSI indicator. ​ The general idea behind using the RSI is to buy when the RSI crosses above 30 and to sell when the RSI crosses below 70. As you can see these rules are clearly defined and don’t leave much room for interpretation. This is EXACTLY what you want from a trading strategy. In trading you’ll need to make big decisions in mere seconds. There’s simply no time to rethink or try to interpret the unknown signals and information that come your way. Following a set of simple easy-to-understand rules – and having a trading strategy that regulates all of your signals and indicators efficiently – is the major key to trading success. Though the rules of trading are very important they are not the most essential element of trading success. The most essential element is YOU. The best trading strategy in the world will be useless if you lose your head in the market and panic. You need to remain calm at all times executing your trading strategy efficiently without hesitation. How to Find a Good ​Day Trading Strategy So you’re convinced that trading strategies are important. Now how do you find one that works for you Obviously day trading strategies don’t grow on trees. You’ll need to do some research and either develop a strategy yourself or find one that is easy to understand and has been proven to be successful. Take your time and do your research. Your strategy is an important step towards financial success and it’s more than worth the investment of time and energy. There are plenty of books and helpful websites to guide you along your way. Also be on the lookout for scams. There are a lot of “educational companies” out there each selling their own trading systems and strategies and each claiming that their system works better than their competitors’. Be wary of these companies. Don’t fall into the trap of believing that you can buy a solid trading strategy for 97 and then make thousands in a short period of time. This is a lie. More recently some of the “educational companies” mentioned above started offering “free local workshops” in nice hotels. These free workshops

slide 9:

which are typically advertised in late night infomercials are another danger sign. Most of them are merely a sales pitch for the company’s actual product and the learning that takes place at the “workshop” is minimal. ​You’d be better off spending that time researching ​the trading market on your own. To avoid scam artists and faulty systems and strategies you need to educate yourself. Your trading education should focus on exploring and familiarizing yourself with several different strategies these ought to teach you to take advantage of price direction. You won’t be able to get a solid education after reading only one book or watching a single 60-minute webinar on the Internet. True education takes more time and effort than that. Fortunately there are many ways to get a good trading education these days and your best source of trading information and research is online. Education and training play a vital role in the molding of a successful trader. If you want to be profitable in the trading market you shouldn’t be cheap when it comes to high-quality trading education. Find a company that has a proven track record. Check the Better Business Bureau BBB to learn about their reputation. Research the internet for company information especially handy sites like and Get Researching So You Can Get Trading Day trading ​ is a very risky venture if you have limited knowledge weak discipline and/or poor money management. However if you approach day trading correctly armed with extensive knowledge a sound strategy and the drive to succeed it can become one of the most lucrative business ventures you’ve ever embarked upon

Exchanging commodities ​ is a centuries old means of investing trading and managing money. It is believed by some historians that variances of the modern commodity exchange have been in existence for nearly 800 years. Exchanges that deal with company stocks are a much more recent development. It has been just over 200 years since the first American stock exchange opened on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia and 190 years since that exchange moved to lower Manhattan and the New York Stock Exchange rang its first opening bell on Wall Street. In the years since the fortunes of American business and American investors have been made and lost countless times on the floors of that exchange and usually with the help of stock brokers who as members of the stock exchange act as agents for buyers or sellers by facilitating transactions in accordance with the law. However recent years have seen a change in the traditional broker-client relationship and the advent of the Internet has spawned a new group of investors who eschew the help of brokers and try to make their fortunes trading stocks online. When you purchase stock you are purchasing a share of ownership in a corporation. In the past stock brokers acted as the intermediary agent

that connected the client to the market. Typically stock brokers would also be ​Certified Financial Planners ​ a qualification that allowed them to provide the client not only with market access but with financial advice and management of their account. In exchange for the service of the account and access to the markets the brokerage earned a commission in the form of a flat fee or a percentage of the trade and those commissions could be quite sizable especially if you were engaged in frequent trading.

Investors who lack those skills are not likely to be good candidates for trading stocks online. A hot tip on a new stock ​is usually not a good reason to get into trading stocks online. Experienced investors know that todays hot tips are often tomorrows trash and it takes more than some quick hits to be a successful online investor. However if you are an individual with a strong financial background and an understanding of markets then you may be equipped to successfully manage your financial future on your own. However if you are not sure of the difference between a market order and a market maker or ex-dividends and earnings per share then saving money on commissions and fees probably will not offset the trading losses you are likely to incur.
