A Little Bit About Me + Day Trading 101
If you’re new to the stock market and StocksToTrade, let me introduce myself.
I’m Tim Bohen, the lead trainer of the SteadyTrade Team, StocksToTrade’s mentorship program. Here are a few things to know about me:
- I’ve been actively day trading for 15 years.
- Since I started teaching, I’ve done over 2,500 webinars on how to day trade and swing trade.
- I’ve spoken at a number of trading expos.
- In 2019, I rang the market bell at the Nasdaq.
Trading is my passion, and I love passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm to others.
Why Trade Stocks?
Why take the time to learn how to day trade?
If you ask me, one of the top reasons why it’s worth learning is because it’s so flexible.
It’s possible to day trade as a side hustle because you can learn over time and avoid taking huge risks.
That means it’s possible to maintain a day job and financial stability while you get your feet wet in the market.
Maybe at some point, you can quit your job and focus on trading, or maybe you’ll find that you prefer to be a part-time trader.
No shame in being a part-time trader — actually, I’m a part-time trader!
What Is Day Trading?
Day trading is a specific type of short-term trading that capitalizes on intraday momentum. It’s not investing. It’s not holding a stock long-term.
Day traders hold positions for minutes, hours, or maybe the length of a trading day. But traders open and close positions on the same trading day.
What Is Day Trading 101?
In the Day Trading 101 course, my goal is to help break down the basics of day trading.
Plenty of people want to run before they walk. I know it’s boring to do the responsible thing and focus on learning. But if you want to be a trader for the long haul, you have to lay a good, strong foundation before you start executing trades.
Trust me — by taking the time to form that foundation of knowledge, you’re doing your future trading self a serious solid.
That means you’ve got to start with the basics.
Day Trading 101 is a NO-COST six-lesson course. As we release it, we’ll put out two videos per week. Of course, once it’s live, you can watch at your own pace. Go as fast or slow as you need. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect…
