How to get started as a day trader

In this webinar, day trader Shay from the Humbled Trader shares her personal journey learning how to day trade profitably over several years.

  • John Bollinger, a well-known technical trader, introduced Bollinger Bands. Bollinger Bands can be used in technical analysis to show the highs and lows in the price of a security over a period. The bands show positive and negative changes of the Simple Moving Average (SMA) of a stock's price.

  • The Volatility Index (VIX) measures the expected volatility of the stock market. It is one of the most recognized indicators of expected market volatility and is widely followed as a daily market indicator.
