Day Trading Checklist

Daily Day Trading Checklist

  • Basic Day Trading Course – if you’re new to day trading, we recommend you take our basic day trading course first. Our basics course gives you the basics on how to start day trading. 
  • Advanced Day Trading Course will teach you the skill sets needed to become a profitable day trader. We teach you about float, how to scan for momentum plays, the most popular patterns to trade, shorting, and so much more…
  • Practice making hundreds of trades in a virtual account before trading with real money.

Watchlists - Step #2

  • Day Trade Watch List – We post our day trade watch list each morning before 9 am EST on our website and in Discord. Make sure to bookmark this page and check it each morning. It’s important to have your watch list uploaded into your brokerage account each morning before 9:15 am. Having a watch list is an essential component of our day trading checklist.
  • *Please read our trade alerts page and Disclaimer in full detail before taking any trades. Do NOT trade with real money until you are comfortable trading and have accepted full responsibility for your trading risk management.
  • Trade Ideas – Trade Ideas is our favorite stock scanner of choice. Look at the top 3 – 5 moving gappers, add them to your watch list, and map out support and resistance levels. This is a daily routine of our day trading checklist.

Live Streaming - Step #3

  • Trade Room – we start our live streams each morning by 9:15 am and stream until around 11:00 am. Our live streams are jam-packed daily with real-time charting, analysis, mentoring, coaching, and showing trades. This is the best way to learn how to day trade stocks.

Process - Step #4

  • Once the bell opens, focus on your targeted watch list, what’s popping up on Trade Ideas, and what people are talking about in our day trade room. (Never take a trade based on anything anyone else is saying!)
  • If the set up looks good, you’ve mapped out support and resistance, have pre-determined entries and exits, and you’re feeling confident, then make the decision to enter into a trade.
  • As a reminder, we are not stock pumpers, so we don’t call out entries and exits to our members. We call out support and resistance levels real-time, however, we will not tell you when to enter and exit trades. You can use our real-time analysis to help you learn how to day trade stocks.
  • On your off-time, study until you feel comfortable following the steps above. Take our free stock market courses, read our recommended stock market books, and do research using sites like, Investopedia and Benzinga.
  • Ask questions and participate in our Discord.
  • Discipline yourself to follow these steps every single day until you are a consistent and profitable trader.
  • It’s really important to make sure to practice in a paper trading account first before trading with real money (at least 200-300 practice trades with a 60-65% win rate).
  • When you think that you’ve arrived as a trader; stay disciplined, never get too cocky, keep studying, keep practicing, and keep a laser focus. Remember…anything can happen at any moment in the stock market friends!
  • If you’re brand new, it takes many traders at least 6 months to 1 year to become comfortable trading, so go easy on yourself if it takes you awhile to absorb trading. Don’t get stressed. Stick to the plan, take breaks, exercise, and eat healthy. Your health is number one! Take our free stock courses if you haven’t already.
  • And…always remember that you have a community of support in the Bullish Bears to help you along your trading journey.
