Trader Training - How Much Can a Day Trader Make?
How much can you make trading the stock market? This is the question I get asked the most. It is not a whole lot different to how much does a doctor or lawyer make? How much does a professional athlete make? The answers to these questions have a huge variance depending on the situation and it is no different for traders. The short answer is that it depends on market conditions, trader skill and capital available. However, I can give you some greater detail to help you understand the economics for my approach to active trading.

To give you the long answer to the question, there are a few concepts that have to be defined. First is reward for risk, the metric that I use to measure profitability.

The second most overbought market since 1980

By one measure, the Dow Industrials Index is now at its second-most ‘overbought’ level since 1980. The measure I’m referring to is the 14-day RSI (Relative Strength Index), a short-term momentum oscillator shown in the bottom section of the following Dow chart.

Dow LT 121216

Being the most something-or-other (the most overbought/oversold, optimistic/pessimistic, etc.) since a distant past time often isn’t as important as it sounds. For instance, the only time since 1980 that the Dow’s daily RSI(14) was as high as it is today was in November of 1996 (interestingly, almost exactly 20 years ago), but nothing dramatic happened during the days, weeks or months that followed the November-1996 momentum extreme.

As illustrated below, a pullback to the 50-day moving average (MA) got underway within a few days of the momentum extreme, after which the Dow resumed its long-term advance. There was a more significant short-term pullback (to the 200-day MA) a few months later and an intermediate-term correction a few months after that (more than 8 months after the momentum extreme), but the bull market continued for another 3 years.

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”

– Warren Buffett

“There is no safe store of value.”

 – Alan Greenspan

“In the short-run, the market is a voting machine – reflecting a voter-registration test that requires only money, not intelligence or emotional stability – but in the long-run, the market is a weighing machine.”

– Attributed to Benjamin Graham by Warren Buffett in a 1993 Berkshire Hathaway letter

The actual quote, from Graham’s 1934 book Security Analysis, is:

In other words, the market is not a weighing machine, in which the value of each issue is registered by an exact and impersonal mechanism, in accordance with its specific qualities. Rather we should say that the market is a voting machine, whereon countless individuals register choices which are partly the product of reason and partly the product of emotion…. Hence the prices of common stocks are not carefully thought out computations, but the resultant of a welter of human reactions. The stock market is a voting machine rather than a weighing machine. It responds to factual data not directly, but only as they affect the decisions of buyers and sellers.
