Career In Day Trading
I started my trading career in Day Trading on Wall Street – trading stocks for clients. I had a mentor who would question me and want to know what goals I had in life. I then realized, I had goals but they were too general. I thought that was not important - making money was. However, I am telling you the truth, without goals – you are lost. You need to have goals in order to get bigger and better things in life. That is the first step towards a Career in Day Trading.
In the late 1990's There was a shift in the trading scene. Many new traders evolved overnight because you did not have to be at a 'Firm' to have a Career in Day Trading. The internet was just booming, AOL came out with “You Got Mail” and stocks started to be traded online. This was a whole new ball game and it caught my interest. The UPS delivery guy was trading stocks from the back of his truck! And this is where we are today – all over the world people are Trading Futures, Commodities, Stocks and Forex....you get my point, all in the comfort of their homes, offices, car, etc.
As a day trader on Wall Street I learned early on, to be successful, you have to earn it. I learned to get there, one truly has to know oneself. You have to know your personality and match that with a trading style that fits you. That is the second step. The third step is - have a realistic trading goal. I aim for 100+ pips for the week – broken down over the 5 days of forex day trading, that is about 20 pips per day. Finally, if you choose a Career in Day Trading you must understand that success is a slow process.
