    I'm a rank novice that has been educating myself to the world of trading and I think I'm ready to take the plunge. I have a full time job from 04:30 to 1:00 pm but I am flexible in my schedule so I can switch to another schedule if need be.

    I wish to short term/day trade stocks.

    Is there a strategy (after 1:30pm) I can use that can produce profitable results or should I just change my work schedule to begin in the afternoon (after 13:00)?

    My novice observation tells me the A.M. is where the action is. I'm I wrong?

    Plunge in straight away. Don't wait a moment. For you, its Reverse Chess. Get shot of your money as quickly as you can within a few or as many losses as it takes. When you're done, rejoice!

    One more thing: just keep back a few dollars at the end for an immediate celebration drink at your local bar.
  4. I'm a futures trader, not stocks, so I can't answer your question.

    What I can do is recommend a book to you; one that I am sure will be poo-pooed by other posters for probably the wrong reasons, and one I'm sure will cause personal attacks to myself. I don't shiv a git.

    The book is ...

    I am recommending the book to you. I think it will help you decide how to approach trading, given your contraints.

    Good luck,
