Professional Day-Trading - Educating Traders since 1996!
With the rise of the internet in the late 90s a direct access of privat traders to the stock exchanges of the world was possible. Quickly several online brokerages were formed, the trading software and the execution speed was improved greatly with every release. During the .com era it was easy to make money with daytrading, almost every stock skyrocketted. But in March 2000 the party was suddenly over, the bubble exploded, stocks dropped sharply and many companies went bankrupt.
A lot of daytrading accounts were wiped out during these days and daytraders learned that it was not that easy to make money with online trading. But there were some trader who survived the bubble and a few who made much more money on the way down than on the way up. The difference between the winners and the losers were education, discipline and a sound strategy - they were professional daytraders, not gamblers.
Gamblers try to get rich quickly and don't think about risks. They ignore the need for education, while professional traders try to learn from mistakes. They see trading as a profession which can be learned and mastered.
The author of this website has started daytrading in 1995. The markets have changed since this time and there are new trends for traders, for example the trading of global currencies (Forex Trading). But the basic strategies of a professional daytrader remain the same: A good preparation of the trading day, a well tested trading plan, knowledge of all basic concepts and a lot of discipline and patience. Daytrading is not gambling, it is the art of making an intelligent bet.
