So I am a 2.5 months into daytrading, down about $2500. Not too bad, but the discouragement sets in everyday around this time. No one has shown me a thing. I ask, they spout something about time and "have to be fast" and off they go. It's getting old. I am noticing somethings. So that is good. The way I am learning is a "look for the shorts" and that's it. Having 500 stocks up and scanning for shorts. That's it. There has got to be more. Whenever I get stuck I go back to charts, but I was fighting the trend. I fixed that (got some good charts, ours were crap and I was an idiot) My main issue is scanning stocks. The only thing I can really scan for is size on the bid/offer. So I scurry around all day looking for size. Then I pray it steps or gets eaten. Some one please tell me there is more. Any suggestions on how/where to learn a bit more? Thanks all.
