I've wanted to get involved in stocks and investing for years now, but have never really known where to start. I'm currently about halfway through college and beginning to consider what I plan on doing with the rest of my life and the flexibility of day trading is something that appeals to me. I've looked into sites like Share Builder that have a low-entry point, but I'm not sure if that's the right route to go. So, my question is - if I want to get involved in day trading, what's the first thing I should do? I'll be starting with at most about $1k, which I know is not very much at all, but I figure it's a start and because I'm still in school and mostly supported by my parents, I can afford to make mistakes and learn from them. Thank you in advanced for any help!
