A Day in the Life of a Day Trader

If you are a Day Trader you might have found yourself stumped when people ask you 'What you do the entire day'? Its a question most day trader’s get asked because people assume we just sit around whole day! My quest to explain my day to those not well versed with day-trading brought me to this infographic, which capture’s my day accurately! So here’s sharing the same with all other day traders. Happy Weekend! P.s: Unfortunately, LinkedIn Groups allows only 1 photo per post, so I am unable to load smaller snapshots with better resolution.

Its a combination of everything, risk, analysis, price action... and I would agree to a certain extent.. gambling. However, if you know the odds.... the the house( i.e. market) does not always win.....

Daniel Steyskal nice way to put things. Sure adds a drama element to the conversation.

Because it's true, that's why every trading desk focuses on getting desks filled rather than using their amazing technical analysis to make 7 grillion dollars. Day trading allows someone to take their worthless equity and turn it into valuable trading fees.

Also why when all my friends wanted to know how to make money in the market, I said don't touch anything until you're ready to throw 5k over a bridge and be fine with it.

Daniel Steyskal you are probably right, above all about these CFD brokers who just call people to push them opening an account; hence, people with no experience believe in easy money, and they lose, of course. But there are also serious traders with years of experience, where day make profits, real profits. The big question here is: who is cheating and who is really a good trader. Unfortunately, the most are cheating.

@Daniel Prandelli - You say most are cheating - how do you define cheating? If one knows there are that many cheaters in the game then there only a few explanations for why that person would still play - maybe there is a flattering one in the mix but none come to mind.
