Apply your Stops and stick to it

For traders who have used short-selling, stop loss reduces loss in case the price rises beyond their expectations.

Once you know what you are losing before taking the trade and you are comfortable with it, you are not prone to emotions and the probability of success as a day trader specifically increases dramatically.

Book profits and Trail stops

Traders usually get obsessed with greed and few and are prone to do mistakes. So its is advised to book profits near price projection or target objectives or trail your stop loss levels higher to protect from reversal and being objective.

Trade with the trend not against it

Because being a contrarian and to succeed as a trader is very tough. Therefore, never act against the trend if you want to become a successful trader.

Choose liquid stocks and indices
