How Much Money Can I Make Day Trading?

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 more money when the market goes down than when it goes up. 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 that just because the market goes down 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 see the reviews of all of our traders.

These concepts we use to make a daily income, secure long term wealth, and have our financial freedom.

Whether you want day trade in the mornings and make a daily income, or have low maintenance positions that you only have to monitor weekly or monthly.

To be able to make money day trading, 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 as well. That is both the advantage and disadvantage of trading in the futures market. Most of our traders use the E-mini markets to make a full time income in one to two hours a day.

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 or even 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 winning 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 a winning system it makes things much easier.

Now you may ask…

How much money can I make day trading E-minis? We teach all of our traders on the E-mini S&P 500, which is the single highest traded market in the world. The chart above represents the cumulative points per month, since we began to track the beginner results Congressive Trading Strategy in January, 2012.

There are many traders that are more conservative and may not make $100 per day. It is important to understand it doesn’t matter how much money you actually make per day. The most important thing is the consistency. Once a trader starts making $1 per day he 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.
