The Day Trading Lifestyle – Life After Day Trading Academy

Time and effort are required to lay the foundation for success.  Every story of an “overnight success” involved years of preparation and struggle. But do not be intimidated; Day-trading may seem intimidating at first, but it really isn’t. Just take a deep breath.

We at The Day Trading Academy coach students from all walks of life to success. Our in-house traders strive to support and develop your trading skills. Our core values at The Day Trading Academy’s core values are: Success, Wealth, and Freedom.   We recognize that these words are powerful represent different things to different people. It is our commitment to assist students and our DTA family in attaining their goals, whatever their interpretation of each value may be.

Learning how to day trade is a decision that many people make to live their dream of having complete freedom in terms of time, money, and location.

The mantra we have is:“Let’s Create Your Lifestyle”.   Over the last few years, we have helped hundreds of our students and members become consistently profitable traders; achieving their goals and creating their lifestyles.

You don’t rely on anyone except yourself when you day trade.  For some, it’s the freedom to spend time with their family while for others, it is more about having to answer to anyone but yourself, or working 12 hours a day doing something they don’t truly enjoy.  Trading not only offers a flexible job, but a flexible lifestyle as well. You just need a few hours, an internet connection and some knowledge. All of which The Day Trading Academy can help you with.

When we say flexible, we not only refer to traveling and the ability to take time off work; it is being able to stay flexible with the fast changing global world. Many people trade a couple of hours a day, and earn a great income. Remember, you only need an internet connection to make a living day trading.  It is one of the reasons we say day trading is a lifestyle, not a profession.

Day Trading one of the Cheapest Businesses That YOU Can Start

Day trading is exponentially cheaper when compared to starting a conventional business.   How many companies offer the potential of making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in the first full year of business and costs less than $10,000 to start?

Whenever anyone asks us how much money a trader can make with the E-mini S&P 500, we always say an average of roughly two points a day.  Points are trading term used in the futures market describing the movement of price during the trading session. This is what a beginner can make without any risk management and without maximizing profit on any trades.  By leveraging contracts behind these two points, we can make between $100 – $1,000, and more, for the same time in the market.

“Day Trading in Venice with one of our Graduate Master Traders Manny”

Manny on the left, aka The Trading Connoisseur is a very conservative trader that only looks for an average of 2-3 points per day.  He normally finishes within 15-20 minutes, taking only 1-2 trades and loves to spend his extra time on the beach with his family.

By leveraging your position with increased contracts,  you can make the same profit with two points at ten contracts or twenty points with one.

You can decide how much time you want to spend trading, or more importantly, how much time you want away from the market.   This year, Manny took five weeks off from trading to bring his entire family to Italy, solely on his day trading income.

The picture above shows a few of the Day Trading Academy Master Traders. These are the people who have risen through the ranks to become some of the best. They all have different styles, personalities, and consistency in day trading in different ways.  Part of the original group of students to convince Marcello to begin teaching again, they have stayed with the Day Trading Academy to assist with coaching and advanced trade concepts, helping develop the next generation of Master Traders.

Nikolai on the left, aka Hit Man:  His style is adaptive to the changes in buying and selling pressure and he decides how aggressive he will be based on how well the market moving.  Nikolai loves to run our live and review classes to teach others the techniques he uses for analysis. A very aggressive trader and prefers to capitalize on quick market fluctuations.

Second from Left: Marcello Arrambide, aka The Wandering Trader.

Jim is the second from the right, aka Super Man:  Loves to trade all day–He watches the markets 9.30am to 4.00 pm (New York time).  For Jim, the idea is to see how well he is able to handle himself in the market the entire day, often amassing over twenty points.  He is a rules based trader and many of his concepts and ideas have been incorporated into The Day Trading Academy’s strategy.

Manny,  was one of the first to attend DTA’s Military Training and has recently returned from London, where he trained a new student who opted for one-on-one development to begin their career.  His market psychology classes are a must-see at the annual seminar.
