“Every game has rules. Life’s a game that has its respective rules; obey the rules, win the game!”– Israelmore Ayivor, shaping the dream
What is the meaning of intraday trading?
Intraday trading or day trading is the same thing. there is no difference between intraday and day trading. Intraday trading means opening and closing a trade daily.
for example, a trader opens trade after a daily candlestick opening. Now he will close his trade at the end of the day. it does not matter in loss or profit but he will close the trade. This is simple day trading.
How much does a day trader make from forex?
Well, this question has not a single answer. it depends on many factors. for example,
on average, a day trader in forex, with an account size of $10k, can make at least $200 per day by risking 2% per trade. if you will risk more money you will get more profit or loss.
The best time frame for day trading forex
5 min and 15 min time frames are the best forex day trading. because it will be easy for an intraday trader to analyze the market in a short timeframe.
Best thing a day trader should know
The major thing I’m going to tell you is that there’s no holy grail system in trading which you mostly read on different websites on the internet. You can’t become a millionaire in one night from forex. Success demands effort and sacrifice.
I teach traders with very simple and effective techniques, no holy grail system but to learn high probability setups with very simple techniques. I prefer a trading setup with a high-risk reward ratio as well as good money management. There are thousands of day trading strategies but you can’t win without proper money management. Successful traders give more time to trading psychology as well as money management. Trading Psychology and money management are two important rules of forex trading
Before we start you have to know that you cannot become a millionaire in a month or a year. When there will be consistency in your profits then you are on the way to a millionaire. you have to accept losses in the market and don’t try to take revenge from the market. losses and profits are part of a business.
