How to daytrade

What do daytraders look for first thing of a morning, is there a set of filters, ie volume, percentage gain ,buys, sells etc? Also is there a way to pick certain criteria for your filters?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

John

Hi John,

At the risk of sounding horrible and negative I'd say please don't try daytrading until you've got some experience with longer term trading and know what tools you personally feel comfortable with. You'll end up losing money and not learning much. For me when I was very short term trading the times of news/announcements were the first things I looked for every day.
