Background: In 2018 I began studying the stock market fulltime after being introduced to day trading and seeing with my own eyes the mind boggling moves a stock can make percentage wise in a single day.

I personally seen a stock quadruple in value in less than 1 hour! That’s a 400% gain on your investment if you got in at the right time. Educating yourself to be a great day trader is all about learning when to get in at the right time.TIS day trade buying resistance break

Why I Got Into This Break of Resistance Trade?

On Monday the 13th of August 2018 I thought I was going to take the day off, but once you become a fulltime day trader you soon realize that it’s pretty hard to not watch the market, especially if you have some free time in your day.

Well at 1pm I fired up my whole gauntlet of stock trading software and for me that includes: Etrade Pro, Trade Ideas Pro, Benzinga Pro, and the Dekmar Trades chatroom. For the first 2 hours I followed $TIS but wasn’t 100% confident in it.


At 3pm however, TIS sparked my interest, and the video below explains why. 

BTW: This particular trading lesson is in 4k, so I suggest you enable the full-screen option and select the highest quality. In the future I'm going to record the trades in 1080p.


The reason I’m sharing my trading video lessons and tips is simply to help other stock traders out. If you’re new to stock trading you may already know that you have to constantly study and one of the best tools to take advantage of is live trading videos.
