Welcome friends.

I am Krystal, a freelance web developer based in Southern California, blogging about what it takes to become a professional day trader. I’ve been dabbling in trading for four years now, but all that changed June 24, 2021. This is when I made my declaration to become a professional. Throughout this time, I always wanted to watch someone start from scratch, but most bloggers, YouTubers, podcast guests, are already pros by the time you come across them. This can be quite intimidating and inundating to say the least. So here is a lo-fi blog on what it takes to become a professional day trader.
