How much money can you make day trading? We have been able to see great results over the last few years with commodities, stocks, and even E-mini futures. Teaching traders and investors to understand the market and most importantly how to adapt to it, is the single most important service we provide.
At the end of the day it is important to understand that the amount of money you can make in the market is relative. Everyone understand that there is a tremendous opportunity to make money in the stock market. What most don’t share is the tremendous opportunity to lose money as well. This is why we have to take this as a serious business. It can be the best thing that you have done with your life but it can also be the worst thing that one can do in their lives.
If you want to know more about day trading, have a look at this very interesting and insightful guide to day trading.
Being able to adapt to the market quickly is extremely important in these trying economic times.
Many beginners may not realize that we are able to make money when the market goes up and when it goes down. With increased movement and volatility this is one the best periods in history to learn how to day trade.
Now in full disclosure this isn’t guaranteed, just because the ability exists to make money when the market goes up or down does not mean you will become a profitable trader.
It is important to realize that in order to learn how to trade it takes time, patience, and discipline. One shouldn’t expect to buy a course and make a million dollars next week because that isn’t how this works.
Feel free to watch reviews from students and traders we have worked with.
Whether you want day trade in the mornings, or have low maintenance positions that you only have to monitor weekly or monthly.
In order to trade, a certain amount of capital is required. The E-mini Futures markets provides some of the highest volume markets in the world, and some of the lowest requirements to get started. There is a great amount of movement and E-mini Futures markets are also higher leveraged than most other markets. Remember that while you can make more money if the market goes in your favor you can also lose more if it goes against you. That is both the advantage and disadvantage of trading in the futures market. Most of our traders trade the E-mini markets because it provides great liquidity, volume and volatility.
There is something that is significantly different in the way that Day Trading Academy (DTA) teaches our traders. Everyone always talks about the winning trades and it is easy to share a huge winning day or winning month (below).
But it is quite another things to show the losses (below)
Trading is a serious business and we it isn’t as easy as everyone thinks it may be. It is very real that anyone investing or trading in the stock market can lose everything, very similar to how our Founder lost $25,000 in one month.
That is why its important that you know that you can lose money trading. At DTA we are all about transparency and we admit that traders do lose money. While most of the industry is only going to show you “winning trades” and never show losing trades we also are going to share losing trades. Here is a live screenshot showing open positions netting a $48,000+ Loss at the moment.
This is why it is so important to have someone that is going to show you a system and strategy to minimize losses and maximize gains. While we believe everyone can learn how to day trade not everyone is willing to sacrifice to be able to learn. Learning how to trade doesn’t happen overnight but when you have an edge it makes things much easier.
Now you may ask….How much money can I make?
It is important to understand it doesn’t matter how much money you actually make per day. The most important thing is the consistency. One of the great things about trading is that if you are able to get consistency, you are able to scale up. Meaning once you are making $1 per day you can move up and start making $2 per day. Then $4 per day and so on.
This is what we teach our traders to ensure that what we focus on are the right decisions and not making money. This is part of the reason why we believe the way we focus on the market is the best way to learn how to trade. We try to remove emotions and try to focus on psychology instead of just focusing on making XX amount of dollars per day.
