What is a Day Trader?

Day trading is usually not recommended since it carries a high degree of risk. Day traders usually trade aggressively by connecting through the Internet with a broker or a terminal that is in turn connected to the office of the broker.

The major goal of day traders by making numerous trade transactions each day is to earn small profits.

To be a successful investor you'll need the right trading platform. A professional-grade, award-winning platform that offers low cost trades like OptionHouse. The low cost trades will allow you to preserve more of your wealth and save money, which you can reinvest instead of paying brokerage commissions.
Opening a OptionsHouse account to benefit from their low $3.95 stock trades (currently they offer 100 free trades) is a smart idea.
