Day trading techniques are a set of strategies that will take you to a winning trade. Once you have chosen the main strategy, you have to concentrate in analyzing the charts, momentum, history and few other indicators that will help you to make a wise decision, but remember that charts are just indicators that do not guarantee future results. Trading is far more profitable, satisfying and fun when you know what you are doing and the money is not really important to you because in your case the investment capital is money you can afford to loose.
Tips and techniques should be part of your daily review but knowledge and concentration should be part of you. Fear of entry should not be one of your problems, unfortunately there is no easy or comfortable way to overcome this obstacle, one must simply decide to take the next move on a given signal. You should have been prepared for that because here is where your training, knowledge and experience plays a big roll. I assume you have chosen few stocks to watch, you have done your home work, now is time to be aggressive, bold and courageous, entry must be quick and with confidence or the opportunity will be missed, entry must be accurate or you will not have the results you expected.
If you are a beginner day trader, be sure to manage the risk on each transaction, have ready a back up strategy, this one is as important as the main one, since it will protect your investment in case of a wrong decision by controlling the down fall of your stock. If you have developed a plan, do not hesitate to use it, do not run away from it. Each time you make a trade your chances are fifty fifty you are going to be right, so if you are wrong take a small loss and protect the rest of your capital.
