I do data entry so nobody's really watching over my shoulder. I keep my phone right next to me and every 15ish minutes I'll look at the markets and look at stocks I've been watching and if I'm in a trade then I'll straight up ignore what I'm doing at work lol but it depends how serious your job is.

if you work later int he day you can trade in the morning, I get to work at 9am Colorado time, the market opens at 7:30 and I trade until 8:40am before I have to get ready for work and drive there. Most days I am in and out of a trade before work.

I'm assuming you are checking your charts in multiple time frames and using some kind of indicator and checking for any cat. or SEC filings and stuff like that

@kobayashimaru I am using live data. I have Finviz Elite. That's how I see all percent gainers and losers throughout the day. For Filings and news...I have an RSS News Reader for my macbook, Leaf. I have an RSS Feed from the SEC website for various Filings. I get a notification when a various filing comes out. I also have an RSS Feed set up for Business Wire, Market Wired, OTC Markets..etc

failed for 5 years and lost a lot. I have spent the last year reading tons of trading strategy books and watched hundreds of hours of You tube videos. I have since combined multiple strategies and now have the confidence I am on the right track. I constantly tweak my strategies and follow the same pattern over and over. Practice, practice, practice, over and over. Find winning patterns and study them. Make a set of rules and follow them no matter what! Learn from losses.

Hello, I wanted to lend a hand on @chadw trade for $AMDA, I think you might be mistaken on what is an ABCD pattern. I only trade ABCD patterns and have excellent results I don't know if its ok for me to offer this to you but I have an excel sheet for sell it's only $50.00 if you are interested in it let me know. Let's break down the Chart. The ABCD pattern that you saw on the 1min chart was not an ABCD pattern; it was bad choppy charting. The ABCD pattern did not form on $AMDA until about 20min before market close it finished strong all the way up to $4.44 before coming back to $3.88 at 6:00 Pm Colorado time. Look at the pattern in the 5min chart there is no ABCD pattern. I supplied a perfect ABCD pattern that I traded while ago. I don't know if you are using TD Ameritrade Think or Swim if you are using the on-demand feature to look at ticker $HMNY on 4/16/2018 there are 3 ABCD patterns on that chart. Remember to use more than just the one minute chart to see the ABCD pattern if you can confirm the pattern on more than one time from it give more to the patter and have a greater chance of moving. Also, let's say that they ABCD patter that was an ABCD pattern you bought to wait soon for the trade to run into you order and prove itself before you get into it. Attached is a chart for ECYT back on 2/28/2018, the level that the stock must get over is $5.60. I would place my STOP order in at $5.60 or $5.61 and wait for the trade to come to me if it never reached that price I am not in the trade and I don't lose money or day trade. Also, watch the time of day I started to track in the excels sheet the time of when the ABCD pattern form and most of the time it's about 8am-8: 45 AM Colorado time of the last few minutes of the trading day I mean like the last 10min or so before market close. I bought $AMDA about 10min before market close at $2.81. I hope this helps.

Dunno about your account size, but watch out for PTD rule. Never revenge trade either. Lick your wounds, study, and get back in the game tomorrow. =)

It look like you are using Etrade, I use them to I was recommend creating an account with TOS I don't use them for trading just for the on demand and the charting. True what daber360 stated if you have a small account watch you day trades in Etrade it under the balance section.
