Any day traders out there?

There's been a lot of talk of hobbies and side hustles, but I want to know who's dabbling in day trading and the stock market?


Recommendations/people you follow/apps you use?


Most people are familiar with RobinHood, but looking to start a little deeper discussion.

Studies have shown that 80-90% of PROFESSIONAL day traders lose money. If you're looking for a good way to stress yourself out and lose money, have at it! I'd be happy to compare my returns dollar-cost averaging into low-cost Vanguard ETFs with any part-time day traders.ย

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I was going to post this as well. You also can't just compare wins/losses but actually beating the market. I think it's fine to place bets on companies you believe in or build up dividend portfolios.

Great point. The best comparison I've heard is that day trading is like sports gambling. Pretty hard to make money off it consistently, but can be fun if you don't go overboard.ย

From what I understand, day trading is not something you can do when you feel like it/as a side gig. Successful day traders WORK at day trading 8+ hours a day. That's why I never bothered looking into it.
