As Jack Welch told us: “change before you have to.”
Beginners are attracted to day trading because, most of us when we start out, only consider one thing: risk.
With day trading we’re offered a low-risk and the beginner takes this (usually unsuccessfully) with low probability entries.
The professional counters by (mostly) taking high probability opportunities.
This often requires close attention for long periods followed by quick and decisive action.
Like all the best games, day trading is easy to learn but hard to master.
As Seth says, “if failure is not an option, neither is (the) success.”
