Oh does it suck to be whipsawed but when you are on the right side of things and in sync and winning trades it feels so damn good.
Find the right timeframe that works for you.
I won’t day trade SPY based on lack of 25k in account due to PDT rules. I will use the 4 hour timeframe since this fits better with my schedule and I can do swing trades but not really closing trades in one day. Trading options could be a good way to increase leverage but now you are also playing volatility and timing.
Any day trading happens with the EUR/USD. No PDT but liquidity/movement is important.
