View Full Version : Active Daytrading
08-15-2007, 11:34 AM
I trade stocks every once and a while for myself. I am looking into potentially becoming a more active trader (day trading), yet the fees from companies like Scottrade/TD, etc make this difficult.
What is the solution that some of you have for this issue?

You should have the ability to purchase a large minimum amount of shares, say 1000 per order, IMO. I use this quantity each opening and trade the gap that are in the Nasdaq from afterhours trades that have stacked up for the opening bell. I expect 2-3% per trade and am in and out by 10am EST each day.
Others may have a much more extensive thought process, but, if I can gross $300-$600 per trading day for 1 hour of time it is okay by me.
