Day Trading Education

Ever wish you could find a guide to day trading for beginners? Now you can. Day trading involves the buying and selling of stocks in a relatively short period — sometimes as little as a few hours. 

Gorilla Trades offers a day trading education course that covers topics ranging from beginning steps to advanced trading strategies. Below are some of the topics covered in these day trading education courses.

How to Day Trade

Beginners get access to a basic overview of the day-trading process. This will include some basic steps to get started, as well as tips and tricks to maximize returns while minimizing risk. Users will also become familiar with order types used in day trading, such as stop-loss orders that can be used to mitigate potential losses.

How to Manage Risk

Day trading is often associated with risk. Gorilla Trades ensures that investors understand the pitfalls of day trading and learn to navigate risks responsibly. Investors will learn how day trading fits into a broader investment strategy, as well as tips that investors use to protect themselves from risky investments. 

How much should investors really put into an individual trade? Learn more through the day trading course.

How to Use Technical Indicators to Identify Entry and Exit Points

Day trading requires a perfect balance of precision and quick thinking. Traders achieve this by using technical indicators to identify entry and exit points for short-term trading positions. These technical indicators rely on market data and mathematical calculations to forecast stock performance. Gorilla Trades can introduce you to indicators such as:

  • Relative strength index (RSI)
  • Bollinger Bands
  • Moving averages
  • Moving average convergence/divergence (MACD)
  • Stochastic oscillator
  • Average directional index (ADX)

Traders will also learn more about how to use multiple indicators at once to reinforce stock decisions and make the most of every trade.

Options Trading

Day traders commonly rely on stock options to speculate on short-term price movements of stocks. An option gives traders the right (but not obligation) to buy/sell the stock at the price set by the options contract.

Options trading can be complex — especially for beginners. Gorilla Trades can take the guesswork out of options trading, providing the resources you need to navigate put and call options and how to use this strategy to mitigate risk and maximize rewards. 

Leverage and Margins Trading

Some day traders practice margin trading, which basically allows investors to borrow money from a broker to complete a trade they couldn’t make otherwise. But how much margin can you use? How do you manage the risk?

Gorilla Trades members will learn how to calculate margin/leverage. You’ll also learn how to perform margin trades responsibly to avoid unnecessary risk and a devastating “margin call.”

Gorilla Trades System Tutorial

Gorilla Trades also uses a unique system to sift through more than 6,000 stocks every night. These stocks are measured against 14 different technical parameters that indicate the potential for explosive growth. 

Members will learn how this system works and how to use Gorilla Trades to make both short and long-term trading decisions that can see a dramatic return on their investments.

Long-Term Trading Education

Day traders aren’t the only ones who benefit from Gorilla Trades educational platform. In addition to learning how to day trade, Gorilla Trades members get exclusive access to other educational materials that aid in the selection of long-term investments. If your aim is to build a retirement fund or save for a future financial goal, Gorilla Trades can bring you up to speed on the best investment strategies.

What Is a Fund?

Beginner investors can learn more about the difference between an individual stock and a “fund,” which is a collection of stocks usually pulled together from a variety of market sectors. Investors can learn about the differences and advantages between: 

  • Mutual funds
  • Index funds
  • Exchange-traded funds

Funds offer the advantage of built-in diversification — but which option is right for you? Gorilla Trades educational resources will help you learn about the differences and benefits of these fund types so you can make the right choice for your future.

Diversification and Risk

Every investor should understand the basic principles of diversification and the need to balance your portfolio. Through Gorilla Trades’ educational materials, investors can learn the importance of diversification within an asset class, as well as diversification across asset classes

Do some sectors carry higher risk than others? What is the best way to balance your portfolio? Learn more through Gorilla Trades educational tools.

Selecting Growth Stocks

Selecting the right stock demands careful planning and research. Gorilla Trades offers educational content to help investors research things like:

  • Price to earnings ratio (P/E ratio)
  • Earnings per share
  • Price to sales ratio (P/S ratio)
  • Debt to equity ratio (D/E ratio)

These quantitative figures can supplement questions relating to a company’s leadership structure, industry trends, and more. Gorilla Trades members will learn how to make these sorts of decisions when evaluating individual stocks to add to their investment portfolios.
