Please complete the form opposite to request your exclusive guide, ‘How To Day Trade’, written for you by professional traders.

Your ‘How To Day Trade’ guide covers:

  • Day trade strategies – your options
  • How to spot the opportunities
  • How to implement your strategy
  • How to manage your day trade risks

Please fill in your details on this page to receive your guide and learn how to day trade. Alternatively, if you’re ready to start day trading on-line, go to our on-line account application form.

For investors who want to day trade we’ll provide a complimentary trading guide to help you learn how to do it.

The day trade guide is completely free and can be used in conjunction with our complimentary day trade trial. This allows you to use our on-line trading platform on a trial basis with no risk – we’ll give you virtual money in order to help you perfect your trading skills before committing your own funds.

To day trade is to speculate in securities, buying and selling within the same trading day, so that all positions are usually closed before the market closes for that trading day. The day trade investor looks for a financial instrument that has the potential to quickly and imminently accelerate in price, either up or down. When traded well, such a stock can make a substantial profit for the shrewd trader. As with all forms of trading, there is also the risk of financial loss. It is always a good idea to make sure you understand the risks and have appropriate risk management systems in place, like stop-losses or an appropriate exit strategy for each day trade.

When placing a day trade, the trader will focus on very short-term plays; the trade may last just a few minutes. This allows day traders to buy and sell many times in a trading day. Others may, for example, choose to trade solely in the pre-market auction, or trade using the supply/demand implied by the order book. Each trader develops their own strategies that may concentrate on price momentum or on technical patterns. Your Day Trade guide will give you an overview of your day trading options, to help you decide on a new strategy or improve your current one.

Accendo Markets will provide you with a number of platform features to enable you to day trade effectively. We’ll give you level 2 data with Direct Market Access, along with a comprehensive range of index, currency and commodity contracts.

While healthy profits are attainable when you day trade, it is equally possible to make losses. The day trade investor should be sure to limit the risk of loss by following some basic rules:

  • Trade a system that is winnable, avoid the ‘loser’s game’
  • Be disciplined – stick to your day trade strategy, tactics and rules
  • Ensure adequate risk capital
  •  Practice good money management – competent execution of trades and use of stop-losses, if necessary

Your Day Trade guide will cover these rules in more detail.

Buying on margin can increase gains and losses, and a substantial rise or fall can occur in a short space of time. Because of this high risk, a day trade investor will often have to exit a losing position quickly in order to avoid an unacceptable loss.

In the past, day trades were exclusively practised by professional speculators, including banks and investment professionals. However, with the advent of electronic communication networks during the late twentieth century, along with recent developments in electronic trading accessibility, private investors now find it easy to day trade. It has become increasingly popular with non-professional speculators, with an increasingly level ‘playing field’. Accendo Markets caters for all types of day trade investor, from beginners to professionals. Whatever your experience or strategy, we’re here to help by adding the personal touch to your day trades.

Smaller day trade investing first became prevalent at the time of the ‘dot-com bubble’ between 1997 and 2000. Many smaller investors with limited market experience made healthy profits by buying technology shares in the morning and selling them in the afternoon on a margined basis. However, the phenomenon also highlighted the need for sensible risk management. In March 2000, the bubble burst and the unprotected and ill-disciplined day trade investors lost money.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

I am very happy with the service I get from Accendo Markets and in particular Jermaine Bedlow. He is very professional and pleasant to speak to and this counter for a lot. The only problem I do have is with the Accendo trading platform as the platform will not stay open for more than about two minutes on my works computer before it shuts down, but it is fine on my home laptop.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
