Short-Term versus Long-Term Trading
The length of time that you are going to trade in is very important considering your time and goals. Many of us have very significant time constraints when it comes to learning how to trade due to work, family, and possibly even university. While it may be hard to focus good time management will allow any of us to be able to decide whether we want to trade short-term versus long-term trading.
Short term trading is very high profitability if one can learn how to maximize profits in the market. While it may be a bit harder to trade stocks in a short term basis due to the pattern day trading rule (need to have minimum $25,000 to day trade stocks) but with other markets like stocks, forex, or futures one can do quite well.
Many of our traders trade for only an hour or two a day since the futures market is highly leveraged. This means that you can make anywhere between $50 to $5,000 for every dollar that the market rises.
Short-term versus Long-term trading is important to understand because even though you can make much more money trading short term you may not have the time to focus on the markets. Long term trading may also signify lower profitability considering that you will be taking less positions. If you have lower capital you may want to focus more on short term trading while if you have more capital it may be better for you to trade with a long term view.
