Not sure if this is in the correct section, if not Mods please move it as you see fit. I've been trying to figure out how some of the serious daytraders out there trade. Since I work in the industry, I have to trade with either Schwab or Fidelity, I chose Fidelity. That said, I can seem to spot moves well but by the time I go in to my account and put in an order the stocks (or ETF's) have already moved a good amount. Besides that, I always get terrible execution if I do market orders but I don't seem to have many options. So my question is, how do you guys trade and what do you use? My thought is that ideally I would have a hotkey set up to buy/sell certain stocks/ETF's/options and maybe have different algorithems or whatever to either split the bid/ask or just hit the bid. In the meantime, I'm struggling.... Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.
