FAQs Day Trading and Futures

Day Trading is the act of buying and selling an asset on a financial market. Unlike longer forms of trading, Day Trading involves entering and exiting trades within the same trading day. One of the major benefits of doing this is avoiding overnight risk.

Futures are a trading product that allows traders to buy and sell futures contracts that have a value of an underlying asset. The reason why we choose futures trading over any other form of trading is that it is heavily regulated and we can trade directly to the exchange. This means that we do not need a broker and that we trade the true price rather than a manipulated one.
Trading Futures allows you to start day trading with a smaller account compared to share trading. The bare minimum in order to trade the micro markets is $500. The amount that you choose to trade should reflect your risk profile and objectives set out in your trading plan.

FAQs About Learning to Trade

No, not at all. It’s a common myth that learning to day trade takes high intelligence, and it’s been around for a long time. Our members are just like you, they come from all levels of education. As long as you have a reasonable grasp of English and intend to study the materials and practise, your intellect won’t be a factor when you learn how to day trade.

Learning to trade provides you with essential knowledge and skills, but it doesn’t guarantee profits. Successful trading requires continuous practice, disciplined execution of strategies, and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions. Even experienced traders face risks, so it’s crucial to manage your investments wisely.

FAQs About Learning to Trade With IDTA

The key benefit to learning to trade with an academy is the strong support system. We have a strict focus on creating confident and competent traders and do our best to set you up for success.

While learning to day trade is something you can do yourself, the addition of trading mentoring and support channels make learning how to day trade much easier.

In a trading course, you’ll learn everything from understanding market trends and analysis to mastering different trading strategies. This includes honing your skills in risk management and technical analysis which are key components to learning to day trade.

A good trading course offers a well-structured curriculum, interactive learning materials, real-time trading simulations, and access to experienced instructors. Look for courses that provide personalized feedback and support, ensuring you understand the concepts thoroughly.

All of our courses include private coaching sessions with a trading mentor and added group coaching.

Absolutely! Our trading courses are designed for beginners with no prior experience. They start with the basics and gradually progress to advanced topics. With dedication and the right guidance, almost anyone can learn to trade and potentially become a successful trader.

The time it takes to learn trading varies based on individual dedication. Typically, beginners can grasp the basics within a few weeks. However, mastering advanced techniques and becoming a consistently profitable trader might take several months of continuous learning and practice.

If you choose to learn to day trade, it’s important to go at your own pace, and prepare yourself for trading.

Not necessarily, you don’t need to invest a lot of money to learn trading. However, learning to trade is the same as learning any other skill. You could choose to take an online short-course and then ‘learn on the job’ however mistakes can be costly.

We suggest a more powerful method to learning what is essentially a new profession, is to not skimp on the education. Ensure that you learn in a similar way to a university where you have a support structure and take learning to trade more seriously.

It’s often the case that learning how to trade on your own can be far more costly than any education you can find. This is because, if you aren’t skilled enough you can lose a lot of money to the market and not have anything to show for it.
