I have been spending the last few months reading and studying everything I can get my hands on with regards to trading. I have never done any trading, only some investing. My question is in regards to what time frame people would recommend that I start in. My thinking is that I would like to start with scalping because that seems like it might be the best fit to my personality, but I have heard a few people say that this is not the best way to start because of the difficulty. After I get a good feel for scalping (hopefully before I am out of money :eek: ), I would increase the time frame I was trading in to try that out and see if I liked it better or it was more profitable for me. Did anyone else start this way? Would you recommend it? Is it more typical to start by swing trading or longer term day trading? I realize that this may be a tough row to hoe, but I think it will be better for me long term.
