I day trade for a living. I live with my adopted 16 year old son.
I like 1 or 2 day trades on set ups that are pretty clear. When the short term chart stops working I take profits.
I love the stock market and I look forward to it daily.
(1) Emotion has no place here. (2) If a trader is attempting to sell you how good they are at picking; they aren't good at picking or else the entity would have no need for such small revenues. (3) Do not trust anyone that has no skin in the game.
