While being a day trader and day trading online can be an awesome and convenient way to make money as a side hustle or full time job, to be transparent, the task certainly requires many skills. This is where many beginner day traders and those who are just getting started stumble. It’s not because they are not able to gain the required skills, it’s because they are mislead into thinking day trading is much easier than it actually is.
