What are my favorite kinds of stocks to trade online? Instead of try and explain this concept to you, I will just show it to you. You will see that my trading day gets off to a very quick start which allows me to bank a good amount of profit in a very quick amount of time. This is the part of being a day trader that is extremely enjoyable and well worth the time and effort. However, the next day I make turns a bit… well, I don’t want to ruin what happens, but as a hint… the trade does not go nearly as “smooth” as the opening trades. From an educational standpoint though, there is a great learning lesson here as it demonstrates just how fast a trader can experience “smooth” to “bumpy”.
