Day Trading

From a reader today:

“I coudn’t come to terms with the “study ’till you drop to get a good job” approach so I figured in such a free society, there had to be something with an adrenaline rush most people couldn’t handle. After being forced to get a Bachelors in International Business, I started to look for such a job. I found a company called Swifttrade involved in daytrading and my adrenaline was rushing because I knew instantly it was for me…In any case, the site points out that there is a difference between trend following and short-term trading, but isn’t the quality of a great trader his ability to adapt to changing environments?”
