Unless a trader is daytrading or is a financial advisor, broker etc.,,there is no reason to quit your dayjob. What are the number one rules of daytrading and strategies. Daytrading tactics...I'ms still amazed at the bad rep that daytrading has by some people and the media. daytraders usually don't invest cause they account size is too small to invest. can't make living investing with less than $200,000 or live off your investments with less than $300,000 to quit daytrading. a good career daytraders should make at least $10,000/month anthing less find another career that has benefits and pensions cause this job doesn't and has not for long term. A good daytrader should have enough so he doesn't need to daytrade.
