  1. Hi Clay, super video it does make novices like myself see clearly what it is like in real life trading. your live trading vids are very rare if any out there of this quality. Hats off to you.

    Clay…. you seem to be trading without setting up any stop/loss or profit targets. I noticed that your method is a freestyle money management. correct me if I am wrong though pls. you seem to be gliding and when you see or sense danger you are out. is this method better than any other? Mike

  4. Clay, I am going to start Day-Trading . However I am very confused about “pattern day trading”. I understand that if I trade without using the margin account, then in most cases, I could trade as many times as I want. But how about futures , options, etc. could you explain that.
