Bulkowski on Getting Started in Trading

My book, Trading BasicsTrading Basics: Evolution of a Trader book., is the first book in the series, "Evolution of a Trader" and the three describe the four types of trading styles, from buy-and-hold to day trading. If you want to learn how to trade or invest, consider buying a copy of the series. The books are sold individually...

I received an email asking, "When should I quit my job and trade full time?"

My answer is this: When you make as much or more money trading than you do at your day job, then consider trading for a living.

You can trade part time using 1) setups that have a conditional order to enter the trade, and to exit -- use a 2) stop loss order or a 3) target order. If you have those three components, then you don't need to follow the markets full time. Evaluate the markets before and as they open, and then place your order(s). Near the close, check on how you did. If any setup triggered and the trade remains opened, close it out regardless of whether or not you show a profit.

Here are additional suggestions. Keep your day job...
