The best day trading software, hands down, is E-Trade Pro. Folks, it blows away Scottrade and even TDAmeritrade in my opinion. I’ve seen more people quit their day job and trade at home for a living using E-Trade Pro than any other software platform.
Day trading is in someways, similar to swing trading but in other ways, it’s totally different. My teacher Jason Bond taught me that when a trader tries to day trade full time and swing trade full time, it often doesn’t work out because his attention is divided. So my advice to you is to try both and see which one you are better at, then totally focus on just that.
In the video below, you’ll hear from a day trader, Jason Bond (JB), who made $10,000 in a single day, day trading. This isn’t his usual take. It was an exceptional day. You see the “Jedi” works for JB in his live day trading chat room. There was over 300 traders in the chat room that day that can witness how the Jedi made $10,000 in one day. It was crazy. It’s like one person said, OMG Luke has hit 5 of his last 5 trades. Then more and more people starting paying attention and things just exploded from there. Fun stuff guys. Enjoy!
