I am a pattern Day Trader, trading the daily markets. Nonetheless, I have found that through commitment, daily research, common sense, and doing one`s daily due diligence, money can and will be made trading stocks. I am not one to give in to panic and fear. I trade with a high risk tolerance most of the time. As a result, I have profited nicely through my daily work. Both good days and bad days make up any Day Trader`s Life. I have had mostly good ones as a result of my daily research. For some, 4pm is the end of their day. For me, 4pm is only the start of my research day and the time for me to, get my finger on the pulse of tomorrow`s market, to devise possible trade strategies, identify hot stocks which will take me on my next ride to the Bank. Knowing that 2011 is the year for Tech and Financial stocks to explode. Through much research since I began around late Sept 2010, I identified Nvidia (NVDA) as one of my potential money makers. And make money it most certainly has done for me and many others. The first two weeks of 2011 alone has netted me realized gains of over 70K (with NVDA). Of course there are always bumps in the road,but through patience, not panicking, no selling off based on fear, within a short period of time, most any good stock will come back around and even breakout above and beyond one`s entry point position,time being of the essence of course,though nothing is ever truly guaranteed. I read a lot, and always find that many analysts,writers and pessimists will terrorize the minds of investors into a state of panic where they sometimes do cause a sell off frenzy. Well, I just ignore them and all of their cyber generated economic seeds of Terrorism which they always aim to plant into peoples minds. Don`t believe their hype is my motto.
