How To Get Started In Electronic Day Trading:
David S. Nassar
Each day, more and more traders are using computers for the direct buying
and selling of stocks. Is there a difference among the myriad services
available? We went to David Nassar, author of How To Get Started In
Electronic Day Trading, to get the rundown on what is available for todayís
traders. STOCKS & COMMODITIES Editor Thom Hartle interviewed Nassar
via phone on February 23, 1999, about the difference between online
trading and electronic direct access trading, what to consider if you
seriously want to daytrade, and more.
Without a solid education, technology will only help you accelerate
your losses. Trading is about making decisions based on
doing your homework and giving yourself a statistical edge.
Many individuals start out wanting to trade and have access to
systems like electronic direct access trading, but they donít
want to invest in the education or do the work. ó David Nassar
