Daytrading: John Carter
John Carter is the author of Mastering The Trade and is the Founder of TradeTheMarkets.com, an online provider of short-term financial market commentary. John puts on intra-day trades 6-8 times per day. Here he talks about why he likes to use tick charts rather than minute charts, and why he likes mini-Dow Futures contracts for daytrading and how he uses the TICK and TRIN to help gauge market direction and mood. He also discusses why he is a better trader when he's not stuck in front of a screen all day and instead walks away after a trade is placed.
