I'm Alyssa, I'm 30 years old, and a beginner to day trading.
I've had no success in day trading to this point. I've read a ton of books, not just on trading and technicals, but also on psychology (Trading in the zone).
My goal is to become a great momentum day trader. Right now, I have a few issues.
- Small account size..WAY below the $25k (so I am limited to three day trades in five day window). I've partially addressed this by opening two separate brokerage accounts.
- Mostly, my problem is thinking I see the entry, and then having it fail on time and time over again. Often I look for the break above the declining top line. When it happens on the one minute chart, I may enter, but it often breaks back below.
If I wait more than just the one minute chart, I tend to miss a ton of the upside, as these stocks move fairly quickly.
I'm very much focused on high, consistent volumes for stocks that I day trade.
Nice to meet everyone! I look forward to interacting with you all!
