Since Ive been getting a lot of requests on learning to day trade Ive set up this page to lay out all of the tools and resources that I have used to become a successful day trader. I will keep adding resoucces to this page over time so keep checking back.

Audio Books

The first place you should start is by educating yourself. A great book that is a MUST listen to is How to day trade for a living, by Andrew Aziz. This book explains the business of day trading, and how when you trade you basically become a portfolio manager. If you do not have an audible account you can sign up for free for 30 days then cancel. You get to keep the book for free.

Mastering your own negative thoughts is the most important factor in trading. A good book to listen to is Trading for a living. This book goes over the pshchological factors traders have to cope with.

Another good book is the Risk of Trading.

And of course the classic book that all traders should listen to is trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas. Cant find the link on audible. But this is a MUST read/listen to.

Trading Chat Room

getting into a chat room with seasoned traders is another vital tool in your bag of tricks. An awesome free chat room is offered at Trade Ideas. You can register for Trade Ideas Chat here.

Another free resource is the Benzinga Squark Chat. This chat room is accessible via the TD Ameritrade trade platform ThinkOrSwim (tos). All traders should download this platform as the charting capabilities are amazing.

If youre going to be focused on options trading, then options millionaires are a great option only chat.

Another chat room i use is Ascend Trading. I am mostly active at Ascend. They have a discord based chat platform, available 24/7. Multiple rooms and very experienced traders.
