you cant even daytrade with 2k... in any platform you are restricted to 3 day trades in a rolling 5 day period per SEC rules. That means you get 3 day trades a week means your chance of success is very little. Only when you have 25k in your account is when you have unlimited daytrades and thats when you can make actually money but you'll need like 12 monitors and its like a full time job, yuck. I'll stick with swing trading, soo much less stressful when you buy several months out options and take profit whenever and if it went down, it doesnt matter since the market is always at an uptrend if you trade indexes and etfs which are safer than stocks since its always at an upwards trend.I was going to do that myself and a friend threw $2k in 2 years ago and tried day trading and made it nowhere so I swore it off. I imagine it takes A LOT of time to get educated enough to even start.
I trade on RH because its fast and simple while i'm on the go but I do all my research, anaylsis, charting, probabilities/profits calculations and fundamentals on think or swim. Its a steep learning curve even with 2 months of study along with paper trading with fake money, and it took me awhile to be consistent on my trades with real money to know what works best and keep the strategy. I remember my first big loss after hitting 3k the first time and getting cocky i lost half of that and then my emotions took over and led to more bad trades was down to 500 again... then re-evaluated myself and forced myself to stick with the boring strategy and be robotic as possible playing probabilities and the rule of large numbers and things worked out. Now i'm getting around 70- 80% winrate and its supplementing my monthly income. Taking out a few hundred profit each month to pay my utilities and property taxes.
