  • 1. How Day Traders Do 200 Trades A Day And a strategy they use
  • 2. You’re Average Day Trader
  • 3. …Profits… 200 trades x $10 = $2,000 a day
  • 4. …Because Buy & Hold May Give Zero…
  • 5. …More Control…
  • 6. …small trade sizes…$1/£1/Eur1…small risk
  • 7. …lots of experience gained in short time…
  • 8. Who? Students Full Time Mothers Full Time Plumbers Professional Traders School Teachers Retirees My Talk At Bloomberg
  • 9. What Do Winning Day Traders Do Right? Trade 5-6 products Trade about 2-3 hours a day Long and Short Shorts make profits quicker Dow, GBPUSD, FTSE Time frame – 1 minute and 5 minute charts 1 or 2 strategies max 80-90% winning trades 52% trades held under 1 hour 24% trades held 1-6 hours Hold under 10% of positions overnight max
  • 10. What Do Winning Day Traders Do Right? Have a max loss of around 5 x average winning trade Winners take lots of small wins & some large losses Account size $7,000-$20,000 = 80% of day traders Lots of small bets compared to account size
  • 11. Cleverest Thing Day Traders Do… • Bet small…0.1% of their account per point on index/currency • Eg $20,000 account. Bet $20 per point move in Dow or GBP/USD
  • 12. Why Small Trade Sizes They would have open 3-5 positions at any one time in different products If lose, lose small Feared losses
  • 13. Which Products? Dow FTSE Gold GBP/USDEUR/USD GBP/EUR Apple
  • 14. Which Time Frame? • 1 minute and 5 minute charts
  • 15. How Did They Set Up Their Screens?
  • 16. Strategy: Scalping Up to 200 trades in a day About 5 trades per product in an hour 80% of trades last 5 minutes to 2 hours 80% win
  • 17. Strategy: Scalping Win target: 3-5 pips Add to winners if price moving sharply (watch chart) Add to losers up to maximum 3 additional positions Bet size: 0.1% of account size per point ($20k account = $20 per point bet) Stop loss if 3 x winning target (ie 3 x 5 pips lost ie 15 pips) Trade in direction of trend, or of a pullback – see next Popular products: FTSE, Dow, GBP/USD/JPY/EUR, Gold
  • 18. Why – What’s The Theory? The markets moves short sharp amounts So capture many small profits with small moves When it moves fast in your favour, quickly add to your position As soon as it slows, get out If you have a loss, add to it, to reduce your average entry price and the market will come back
  • 19. Profit Maths 8 x 5 pips = 40 pip profit 2 x 15 pips = 30 pip loss Net profit 10 pips
  • 20. Profit Maths $20 bet per pip is $200 profit per 10 trades 2 trades per hour per product 5 products = 10 trades per hour 100 trades per day = $2,000
  • 21. Profit Maths - Caution • Assume 10% of that whilst you learn and make errors • Increase profits: larger account and bet size; more products observed
  • 22. When Do You Know To Enter The Trade? Method 1: Trend
  • 23. …the trend…
  • 24. Method 2: The Pullback • Draw a line to represent the average price of the past 9-12 hours • Ie a line above which as much time the market was as below it • Ie a line around which the market traded • Expect pullbacks to the line when price goes above it too far and below it too far
  • 25. How Do You Know The Trend? Look at the prices Look at the chart
  • 26. Method 3: Breakout
  • 27. Remember Shorting…
  • 28. Risks You don’t exit your losses You don’t trade with the trend, breakout or with a pull back
