Something new that we plan on introducing into the training program where we offer one on one training in a live market environment.

Sept 3rd Recap: 8 Pts in 1 hour (potential $4,000)

Sept 3rd Recap: 8 Pts in 1 hour (potential $4,000)

The video is up and we bring you a bit of insight into market behavior and recognizing it without over complicating the process. I don’t always recommend getting up late but when you do, you should make 8 points. That’s what it seemed like today anyway. It seems as though anytime we have biggest developments or changes with the Day Trading Academy there is always Ethiopian coffee or sushi involved. Last night was no different as we had six new traders sign […]

How Master Traders Start Their Day On Friday's

French Beach on Vancouver Island"French Beach on Vancouver Island."

Day Trading in Vancouver, Canada never felt so good. When a trader is able to make consistent returns in the markets Friday’s are officially considered (whisper voice) “vacation days”.  This of course is the reason why we consider only 200 trading days a year instead of the official 245.  This is a picture from our Master Trader Brice (Mr. Millionaire – read more on the Great Master Trader Tour post) who took some time off to enjoy a wedding in addition to […]

The Great Graduate Master Trader Tour

Graduate Master Trader Tour"The Itinerary for Our Graduate Master Trader Tour"

The Day Trading Academy Blog presents the Great Graduate Master Trader Tour! A few years ago if someone would have told us that we would be teaching traders again we would not have believed it. Living in Ethiopia at the time with limited Internet the only goal was to connect to the markets to day trade and continue traveling around the world. A new master plan was envisioned and a new route was taken. We have always believed that if we are […]

Aug 23rd Recap: 5.5 Points (Possible $2750)

After returning from what seems like an eternity I was able to day trade today and make just over five points in under 90 minutes. There have been quite a few comings and goings since I last posted a recap. We have had some of our graduate master traders share some of their trades via our market recaps page. There are many advantages to having an effective day trading system. A long time ago we decided to start training in-house traders to see […]

Student Trader Jared Reviews The Day Trading Academy (Talks About First Few Days Live)

This Day Trading Academy review is brought to you by Jared! Really excited to share our successful student trader story from Jared.  If there is one thing that is important to understand about becoming a professional day trader is that technical analysis is only part of the game. When we started the Day Trading Academy it was because of the demand of traders and we take that responsibility very seriously. We always want to make sure that we are there for all of our traders […]

Master Trader Recap: Aug 19th Ice Man Makes 3pts in 90 minutes

Master Trader Recap: Aug 19th Ice Man Makes 3pts in 90 minutes

Ice man makes some Norwegian Kroner! Hey everyone! Today I got held up at hockey practice but by the time I came home, I was able to pick up some nice clues from the first hour of the market. As you can see from my first chart I entered the first trade at the midband because the market expectation was still to the upside. I was expecting a pullback to the midband and the trend to continue to the upside. If you […]

How To Trade Around News Releases. Methods Every Trader Should Know

How To Trade Around News Releases. Methods Every Trader Should Know Trading around news releases is extremely important due to the risk involved in market movement responses. The reactions to news are often unexpected and can be extremely erratic.  This alone is the primary reason why we want to avoid trading around news releases altogether. Let me share a story, an insight from a trader: There was a time roughly 7 or 8 years ago when there was an extremely successful trader. This […]

Meeting With DTA Student Trader Manny Cabrera

Day Trading in Venice"Day Trading in Venice with one of our Graduate Master Traders Manny"

We frankly didn’t do much day trading in Venice.  But the view as you can see was quite impressive.  We met up with one of our student traders recently when he took his entire family to Italy.  As I happen to be known as the WanderingTrader I couldn’t pass up the chance to be there for this special event.  This was the view from the hotel room in Venice right on the Grand Canal. We plan on sharing our tour here on […]

Master Trader August 14th/15th Recap: Ice Man Loses 4.5 Pts!!

What to do and what not to do! So I’m going to be honest with you and myself that Wednesday was my worst day in a long, long time. I got caught up in the chop when the market was moving very poorly and I ended up losing 4.25 points! Im having fewer and fewer losing days but I think its important to document them because it keeps you honest with yourself. Here is my horrible chart! First trade was a good one and […]
