How to Day Trade Like a Rocket Scientist

The day trading course here at LearnToDayTrade.com expands upon the method of day trading discussed in the instructor's book How to Day Trade Like a Rocket Scientist (paperback and Kindle editions available on Amazon; free PDF on Discord).

  • Stock Market Basics

    We start with all the basics beginner traders need to know. We cover everything from A to Z in this complete master class on day trading.

  • Technology

    Properly setting up your trade station, trading platform, and hotkeys is critical to profitability as a day trader. We are pioneers of one-button trading.

  • Binomial Distribution

    The binomial distribution is the most important piece of mathematics for traders. It shapes practically every part of the RST trading system.

  • Brokerages

    We breakdown brokerage accounts, commissions, and fees down to the penny and give you the secrets brokers don't want you to know.

  • Pre-market Prep & Scanners

    With over 5,000 ticket symbols to trade, day traders need the best scanners to quickly find Stocks in Play.

  • Trade Playbook

    Trading success is based on the elements you leave out of your system as much as the ones you leave in. Our entire mission is to make trading as simple as possible.

  • Risk Management

    Risk management is the most important element of day trading. RST's approach to risk management elegantly lends itself to simplified trading with a built-in method for improving profitability.

About Rocket Science Trading

Pioneers of "Fixed R/R Ratio" and "One Button Trading"

The goal of The RST Way of trading is to make trading as simple as possible so that a trader's performance can be easily diagnosed and improved. This is only possible after removing unnecessary elements like partials, break-evens, "easing in", countless chart indicators, and so on. With such convoluted trading, it's impossible to identify what needs to change to improve profitability.

In this course, a completely different approach to trading is taught. Under The RST Way of trading, the trader only does three things: 1) decides to go long or short, 2) selects the stop loss price, 3) presses one button to enter the trade. R/R ratio, share size, and exiting for profit or loss is all done automatically by the trading platform (DAS Trader).

Under this approach, improving profitability becomes dead simple. The trader is either doing a bad job of reading the upward/downward trend, picking stop losses that hurt win rate, or is using a bad R/R ratio for the types of stocks favored by the trader. Identifying which needs to change is part of a very straight forward process taught in this course.

"The RST Way" of trading is a unique and elegant approach to day trading that happens to be perfect for beginner day traders.

It's also an ideal trading system for experienced traders who want a more systematic approach to analyzing and improving their trading.
