Section 1: Essentials of Day Trading

This is an introduction video that talks about what to expect in this course and the topics that will be covered. Note the strategies are not part of this course. It is covered in the advanced section of the course.

Section 2: Strategies

In this video you will learn about the strategy that I play often called - 5 minute Power Bar Continuation Play


This is the continuation of the 5 minute Power Bar Strategy with more examples on both short and buy side


This is a slight variation of the 1st strategy that you have learnt. This is the 5 min Power Bar with Pull Back


This is another variation of the 5 min Power Bar strategy. This one is called Mid bar Continuation Play


Another variation of the 1st strategy. This one is the weak bar reversal play. This is different than the rest and when the 1st 5 min bar holds, this one works with great returns.


Though this strategy is also the 5 min play strategy that you have learnt so far, but this one is very different than the rest. This is the only strategy where you will play against the direction of the gap. A lot of this is to do with the trading psychology and it works with big risk reward ratio.


These are 2 very different strategies that has nothing to do with the above. These are more of a complementary play to the other strategy. It also works by itself and has great odds.

Section 3: Wrap UP - How one should plan their trading day

From Start till End. This section also covers the references for additional resourses and disclosures.
