Become A Specialist When Trading!
When it comes to trading the markets, or any specific financial vehicle, there is a lot to learn and there is a lot to know. In all my years of trading, the best advice that I could offer a new trader is: Specialize in something! With all the different strategies that are out there, the best thing any trader can do is, pick something that makes sense and focus on becoming the BEST trader in that space. When you're a beginner there are going to be a lot of questions that you might have…
Please feel free to email me anytime…I’m here to help!. 

Something that you’ll need to do out of the gate is to decide what type of trader you are. Are you Day Trading, Short Term Swing Trading, Long Term Day Trading etc. Are you trading Stocks, Options or some other asset class??? These questions need to be answered FIRST, so you have a directional and a Framework to follow. You will also need to decide how much capital you'll be trading with…and most important of all, you must know what you Risk Allocation Objectives are! That last point in the line in the sand that will either make you or break you as a trader! NEVER DISCOUNT the importance of proper risk management! 

Here are some tips to steer you in the right direction as you start your journey.
Picking The Right Market/Asset 

All markets offer profit potential. Whether it's Stocks, Options Crytro etc…there is money to be made EVERYWHERE. In order to dominate a market though, you will need a high level of focus and specialization. With that said, Don't try to master all markets at once. This will divide your attention, and it may take longer to make money. Keep this in mind…every time you get to know a market and you switch your focus, you’re starting all over again. It’s like becoming the President of a company after years of hard work only to quit, and start a new job with a new company at the bottom…That doesn't make too much sense! Stay focused and hyper engaged! Once you understand how YOUR market works, your “ongoing, forever goal” is to fine tune what you’re doing. Your goal should be to work towards a crazy level of efficiency! Therefore, find a market, get to know it, specialize in it, and be the best possible trader in that space! 

Sidenote: Once you learn to make money in one market, it is easier to adapt to other markets. You will have to get to know the nuances of other markets…you’ll have to get to know that things that make other markets tick…but with time that becomes easier! So, be patient. You may already have a market in mind, but here's the background in a nutshell. It comes down to what you like, but also what you can afford. 

Freedom Tools You’ll Need To Invest In.
There are a few basic tools that you’ll need for your home or mobile office. This next topic really depends on personal preference and lifestyle. For the last 4 years I have personally packed up the multi-monitor “fixed” set up and have opted to use a gaming laptop. The main reason for that is: I travel and am Mobile. Although my home is in Vancouver, I do spend a lot of time moving around. Traveling with a LapTop is much easier to deal with…so trading from a laptop, for me, is more of a convenience/lifestyle choice! 

You don't need a top-of-the-line computer, but you don't want to cheap out either. Again, in my personal opinion, gaming laptops are the best and are exactly what I have been using for years! A slow computer can be costly when day trading, especially if it crashes while you are in trades or its slowness causes you to get stuck in trades. Latency is a profit and opportunity killer. Make sure you have a computer that is up to the task of streaming quotes and filling orders as fast as possible! It obviously goes without saying that a Reliable and Quick Internet Connection is also mandatory! DO NOT Day trade with a sporadic internet connection. 

A User Friendly Trading Platform is Key
There are several popular trading platforms out there. I would suggest trying a few to see which one works best for you. What you want in a Trading Platform is something that you feel is user friendly…so try a few of them out. I personally use TC2000. I have charting set-up videos and scans built for both. It’s what I have used for years and it's what my team uses

Keep in mind you may change your trading platform more than once within your career, or you may alter how it is set up to accommodate your trading progress. Bottomline is: connect with something that is user friendly and efficient. The last thing you want is to be trading and trying to figure out your platform at the same time. Also, be sure to work with a trading platform that feels organic. Your charting platform and brokerage are extremely important! Which takes sme to my next point…

A Broker
Your broker facilitates your trades, and in exchange charges you a commission or fee on your trades. Day traders want to focus on low-fee brokers since high commission costs can ruin the profitability of a day trading strategy…with THAT being said, I don’t think that “commission free” is the way to go either. Remember, commissions are a source of revenue for your brokerage. If they give you free trades they have to make that revenue up on the back end…like selling order flow…so the lowest fee broker isn't always best. You want a broker that will be there to provide support if you have an issue. A few cents extra on a commission is worth it if the company can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars when you have a computer meltdown and can't get out of your trades.
Major banks, while they offer trading accounts, typically aren't the best option for day traders. Fees are typically higher at major banks, and smaller brokers will typically offer more customizable fee and commission structures to day traders.

When is the best time to Day Trade?
As a day trader, both as a beginner and a pro, your life is centered around consistency. One way to generate consistency is to trade during the same hours each day.

While some day traders trade for a whole regular session (9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, for example, for the U.S. stock market), most only trade for a portion of the day. Trading only two to three hours per day is quite common among day traders. Here are the hours you'll want to focus on: When it comes to trading stocks and options I tend to focus on a very specific time frame and that is from the Opening Bell at 9:30am and I stick around until 11:45 am at the latest (generally speaking)...so, the best time for day trading is the first one to two hours after the open, and the last hour before the close (the power hour). You want to get good at trading between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. EST because this is the most volatile time of the day,volume as well. It’s been said that 60-70% of all the volume and volatility is expressed in that window of time…which in turn offers the biggest price moves and most profit potential. Some sizable moves also occur during the last hour of the day—3 p.m. to 4 p.m. If you only want to trade for an hour or two, trade the morning session.

You Must Be A Manage of Risk
Before you go any further, you need to know how to control risk. Day traders should control risk in two ways: trade risk and daily risk.
Trade Risk
Trade risk is how much you are willing to risk on each trade. Ideally, risk 1% or less of your capital on each trade. This is accomplished by picking an entry point and then setting a stop loss, which will get you out of the trade if it starts going too much against you.
The risk is also affected by how big of a position you take, so learn how to calculate the proper position size for stocks, forex, or futures. Factoring in your position size, your entry price, and your stop-loss price, no single trade should expose you to more than a 1% loss in capital.6

Daily Risk
Just as you don't want a single trade to cause a lot of damage to your account (hence the 1% rule), you also don't want one day to ruin your week or month. Therefore, set a daily loss limit. One possibility is to set it at 3% of your capital. If you are risking 1% or less on each trade, you would need to lose three trades or more (with no winners) to lose 3%. With a sound strategy, that shouldn't happen very often. Once you hit your daily cap, stop trading for the day.
Once you are consistently profitable, set your daily loss limit equal to your average winning day. For example, if you typically make $500 on winning days, then you are allowed to lose $500 on losing days. If you lose more than that, stop trading. The logic is that we want to keep daily losses small so that the loss can be easily recouped by a typical winning day.

Learn Strategies for Day Trading 
When you start, don't try to learn everything about trading at once. As a day trader, you only need one strategy that you implement over again and again. You don't need to know it all. Find one strategy that provides you with a method for entry, for setting a stop loss, and for taking profits. Then, go to work on implementing that strategy and paper trade it. Once you have a track record of success on paper, move over into a tenth account and transition from the theory into practice! 
A day trader's job is to find a repeating pattern (or that repeats enough to make a profit) and then exploit it…
.I have over 200 hours of video content
 that focuses primarily on recurring patterns! 

No matter which market you trade, use a demo account to practice your strategy. This lets you practice all day if you want, even when the market is closed. No two days are the same in the markets, so it takes practice to be able to see the trade setups and be able to execute the trades without hesitation. Practice for at least three months before trading real capital. Only when you have at least three months in a row of profitable demo performance should you switch to live trading.
Here are my closing thoughts on what a New Trader Needs to do!
Pick a market you are interested in and can afford to trade. Then, set yourself up with the right equipment and software. Choose a time of day that you will trade and only trade during that time.
Consider your risk by looking at each trade as well as each day. Then, practice a strategy over and over again
. You don't need to know everything to trade profitability. 

You need to be able to implement one strategy that makes money.
Focus on winning with one strategy before attempting to learn others. What I want to do is help you with this process.
