What are the benefits of learning how to trade?

There’s a good reason why more and more people want to learn day trading right now

  1. Learning how to trade can open a lot of doors. Day Trading and scalping trading provide the potential to leverage your time and money in order to live your own lifestyle. What we are able to do as Traders, is seek to make profit from the markets, we can do this virtually when we want and where we want. There are only a few tools required in order to do this, just a trading platform, laptop, internet connection, and a live market.
  2. It develops technical and mental skills needed for Day Trading. Learning how to trade is not easy, you need to learn the technical and mental skills required. It’s important that you have a strong understanding of fundamentals, and that you practise trading on a simulated account before you trade real money.

  3. Learning to Day Trade with an academy can give you necessary support in your trading journey. It takes time to learn to day trade, and a solid support structure is crucial. At the International Day Trading Academy, we offer a day trading mentoring program, as well as local “Trading Hubs” where our members get together and learn from each other. We are proud of our support system and believe that we are one of the most hands-on trading educators in the country.

What Does a Day Trader Do?

A Trader connects to a market via an “Exchange” using their trading platform software; From here they can view graphs and charts that provide information. A Trader uses this information in predicting high probability outcomes. A Trader will make money if they successfully predict which direction the market has moved (price has gone up or down).

As Day Traders we are able to seek opportunities in markets that allow a lot of this movement. This means that we are able to get in and out of a trade very quickly, sometimes in a matter of minutes. That being the case, a typical trading day for us is about 60 to 120 minutes. This means our members have the ability to work 10 hours or fewer per week.

We cover this in our Free introductory trading web classes.

The Traders Lifestyle

Trading can be a great way to leverage your time and money. There are many markets available to trade meaning that there are many options available for when you can trade. This is particularly true for those living in Australia and New Zealand as the time zone allows you to trade outside of 9am-5pm.

Trading also provides great flexibility when it comes to how and where you can do it. Because all that is required in order to trade is a computer, trading platform, and internet connection. Trading is highly portable, as long as you have those 3 things, along with a trading account with enough funds available, you can trade anywhere.

Trading also has its downsides, it does need to be respected and taken seriously. Not all traders are able to be profitable. We concentrate much of our time in ensuring that our members have the competency and support structure in place before they start trading live.

What you need before you
start learning how to trade

At the International Day Trading Academy we believe that the best way to learn day trading isn’t just teach you the theory of trading, but also to teach you how to navigate around an actual working trading strategy.

This strategy is the same strategy that we use each day we trade in the Live Trading Room.

We also use custom build day trading indicators that compliment our strategy

A trading plan is essential to your success as a trader. Learn to trade effectively with the support of a curated plan, which will help you understand what your goals are and how much risk you are willing to apply in order to achieve those goals. It is difficult to remain consistent if you are not measuring your progress.

You need to measure your performance and whether you are following your trading plan.

The best way to do this is to use a trading journal. This is where you will keep record of your trades as well as your notes and lessons learnt.

At the International Day Trading Academy we offer several support channels. We provide mentoring/coaching, trading hubs, live trading rooms, and hands-on support.

When you learn how to trade it’s not all about trading chart patterns, and other technical skills. Mindset and trading psychology play a major role in your success. Trading is 80% mindset and 20% technical skill, so it would make sense that you concentrate a good amount of time into understanding how to control your mindset and improve your chances of being a successful trader.

It is absolutely crucial for a new trader to practice their skills and knowledge in a simulated environment. This ensures that you learn to trade comfortably by trading virtual funds rather than risking your own funds. Once (and only once) you are able to prove yourself capable of trading real money do you open a live trading account.
