Hello Everyone!

I want to start off by letting everyone know that I am very very New at Day Trading actually I am in the very first stages of trying to learn how to Day Trade. I know nothing about it.

It is very hard to say if it is "worth" it for someone else. So if you were asking about become an electrical engineer then there is more of a chance to answer the question of investment to likely earnings.

I don't think there is a known path for the retail trader.
So people who are honest cannot just say "learn this and this and this."

Another important factor is the enormous govt manipulation of the markets. The distortion is so enormous no one knows what it going to happen next. Jim Rogers feels there will be a tremendous crash worse that what anyone has ever seen in their lifetime.

One person replied to a question similar to yours:
If ......(insert a complicated setup)... buy the SPY
Oh to H with it just buy the SPY

Should you decide to proceed, the best collection to free videos I have seen is here:

(FWIW - I do not care for Brooks and have seen some burn their life on him).

As many have said - Good luck.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
