Frequently Asked Questions

What technology tools are needed for successful day trading?

Plus Icon

Successful day trading requires essential technology tools, including a real-time trading simulator, a reliable trading platform, a reputable broker, a stock scanner, and effective journaling tools. These tools collectively contribute to informed decision-making and efficient trade execution.

What trading platform do you recommend?

Plus Icon

We recommend DAS Trader Pro as our preferred trading platform. This direct access software offers a variety of features and advantages, including real-time market data, customizable charts, hotkey functionality for rapid order execution, Level II quotes for in-depth market insights, and a user-friendly interface designed for active traders. These features contribute to a seamless and efficient trading experience.

Is it a must to use DAS in order to join BBT?

Plus Icon

No, it is not mandatory to use DAS Trader to join BBT. BBT members are free to choose the trading platform they prefer. However, it's important to note that our education focuses on DAS Trader, and we provide limited support for other platforms. We have a close collaboration with DAS to enhance the software based on our needs as active traders. Additionally, the BBT community has developed features like the Fixed Risk hotkey for DAS, enabling traders to execute trades with a fixed dollar or percentage risk on each trade.

Do I need a funded brokerage account to join and learn from BBT?

Plus Icon

No, it is not necessary to have a funded brokerage account to join and learn from BBT. In fact, during the learning phase, it is advisable not to risk your hard-earned capital. Our education model guides you through simulated trading initially, allowing you to learn and practice without the financial risk.

What computer setup do you recommend for learning to trade, and how many monitors?

Plus Icon

For the computer, it's important to check the hardware requirements of the trading platform you plan to use. For example, DAS Trader Pro's requirements don't demand a high-end computer. Many traders find gaming computers, while powerful, to be over-specified for trading. As for monitors, it depends on a trader's skills and experience. Once you're certain about day trading, we highly recommend having four monitors. This setup allows you to monitor price action on multiple charts, keep an eye on scanners, and stay connected with our chatroom.
