First Day Trading Tips
As a day trader, one wants to profit from the swing and position traders. Indeed day traders want to know what swing and position traders are up to so they may profit from their trading activities.
For example a day trader must know when and where those traders are entering or exiting their trades. Above all one will try to understand how they trade.
Similarly, scalpers will monitor day and swing traders. At the same time, swing traders will check on both position traders and investors to time the best swing trading opportunities.
Truly, swing and position traders provide the fuel for the best day trading signals. Consequently, it is fair to
say that day traders depend on those traders.
Furthermore, the best day trading signals occur where either swing traders or positions traders are exiting or entering their trade.
