Day Trading For Dummies, 4th Edition, is for people who are looking for a new business or who simply want to supplement their investment returns with new techniques. In this book you can find all the information you need to determine whether you’re cut out for day trading, to lay out your home office, to research and plan trades, and more. (And even if you decide day trading isn’t for you, you can still find lots of sound general advice about markets, trading, and investing strategies that you can benefit from.
Plus you’ll have saved all the money you would have otherwise invested on research and training, not to mention the trading losses!) A lot of people make a lot of money selling services to neophyte day traders, claiming to be the best thing going. And maybe so — for some people. In this book, I give a wider perspective. Instead of telling you to use a particular trading strategy, for example, I help you research and evaluate the different day trading methods available so that you can find one that works for you. And I also tell you up front that if you decide to day trade, this book shouldn’t be your only guide.
