The Bullish Bears stock trading community is all about helping and giving back to each other. We like to think of ourselves as the "pay it forward" movement within the stock market.

You're going to learn multiple different trading strategies such as day trading, swing trading, and options trading within the Bullish Bears community. We have a lot of free courses on our website to help you get started on your trading journey.

You can take our stock courses to learn what the different trading strategies are and how to implement them for yourself. The more you study, the better you'll be.

Stock trading is a battle of buyers and sellers aka the bulls and the bears. This causes volatility in the market which is necessary for trading. Traders are hunters of volatility. As a result, it's important to be able to trade in all market conditions.


There are ways to make money in the stock market no matter the market conditions. If you purchase shares of a stock then the only way that you'll make money is if the stock rises. However, if you know how to trade options the proper ways then you can make money whether the market goes up or trades sideways.

If you're new to the world of stock market trading then you may have heard that options trading is risky. There's some partial truth to this. But, not in the ways that you might think.

Trading in general is risky if you don't know how to do it effectively and have the proper risk management strategies in place. In our community, we teach you how to trade both stocks and options safely and profitably in any type of market conditions.

We also have a very helpful support system in place that will help you along in your stock market trading journey because our members are always continuously helping others and giving back.

Stock Trading


If you're new to stock trading then make sure to read our how to get started in the stock market page. We give you an overview on the important steps to getting started as well as a guide on how our community and trading services works.

One of the first things you should do is find a good brokerage firm you can open an account with. This is where the money is going to be made. As a result, you're going to want to be comfortable with whatever company you choose.

TD Ameritrade and Interactive Brokers have great paper trading accounts that you can use to practice. Practicing is incredibly important as you're figuring out which style of trading you want to pursue.

With a paper trading account, you're not using your own money to practice. That way any losses you take as a new trader aren't harmful to your account; especially if you don't have a large account to start out with.


Practicing allows you to work out any stock trading kinks. Stock trading is fast paced so you need to get good at spotting patterns, support and resistance as well as entries and exits.

If that sounds like a lot, don't worry. You can take as much time as you need to study and apply that to your practice account. That's the beauty of a practice account and stock trading.

You're not forced to jump in right away. That is key. Many times new traders want to jump right in and start making money. Stock trading is hard and requires discipline, focus and time


What is stock market trading? Stock trading buying and selling stocks and/or options to grow your investment portfolio or trading account. There isn't a right or wrong strategy to trading the stock market.

In fact, focusing on one or two strategies can help you grow your wealth. Usually when people ask what is stock market trading they're looking for a way to get rich quick. If that's your main goal, you're going to be disappointed.

It requires discipline, study and time. It's almost like getting a college degree. You're going to have to study, read books and take the time necessary to learn stock training. It's our goal at the Bullish Bears to make our community members self reliant traders.

Learn how to trade the strategies for yourself. That way you're not following a guru in and out of their trades because they're going to have different trading goals than you. That tends to be a thought process not many new traders think about.

Sure it sounds like it'd be easy to follow someone in and out of trades. However, by doing that you have no control over your money because you're reliant on someone else. Make sure to read both our trading alerts and stock watchlists pages to learn more how our community works. We have a free swing trading course and options trading course available on our website too.


There are different styles of trading and day trading is one of them. Day trading is buying and selling a stock in the same day. Many times when people think of day trading, they think of rushing to get in and out of a stock as quickly as possible.

While that can be the case, sometimes you can hold a stock for a few minutes, hours or the entire day. As long as you buy and sell within one trading day, that's day trading.

Trade the setups and don't trade with FOMO. Everyone wants to get that big move. However, if it's already happening wait for a pullback. Jumping in and trying to ride the wave usually means you'll drown if you don't know support and resistance.

Using proper risk management when stock trading keeps your account safe. The goal is to make money. Not blow up your account trying to compete with other traders for the largest profit.

Take your profits. Even if they aren't huge. You never go broke taking a profit and before you know it, your account will start to grow. We have a live trading room that teaches day trading daily to our members and also share our stock scanner live.


Swing trading is a strategy you can use if you don't have to time to sit in front of a computer or are under the PDT rule. The PDT rule limits the amount of day trades a week (3) if your account is under $25,000.

When you swing trade, you're holding a stock overnight up to a couple of weeks. You can have a larger profit target because you have a longer time frame in which to trade.

However, keep in mind that you need to make sure the patterns are poised to help with any moves you're expecting. Patterns along with support and resistance are going to play a huge role in swing trading; as well as all other strategies. 

Holding overnight can be a little more risky as well. News moves markets and that can have an affect on the direction of a stock you're holding. If you're for more help on how to learn stock trading then make sure to take our courses.


Options trading is a great strategy for being able to trade in any market. There are strategies for when the market is up, down and sideways. There are many moving parts to options so it's incredibly important you study and practice before live trading them.

Options allow you to grow an account without putting up a lot of capital. Another plus to options. However, they are riskier because of the different moving parts.

If you take the time to really sit down and learn options, you'll have mastered a skill that allows you the freedom to make money no matter how the market is trading. Make sure to take our options course if you need more help trading options.


We cannot stress enough the importance of having a great community of support to help you out when you're getting started in the stock market. Our community has always been and always be our number one priority.

We have community in both our trading rooms as well as our Facebook group. Join Our Facebook Community if you're not a member yet.

Again...that "pay it forward" mentality that we always strive to promote within our trading community.
