Trading is not gambling or something you can do just for a hobby. Traders are free, flexible, and have the potential to earn a lot, but trading is a profession, in every sense of the word, and to be successful in the long-term, it requires professionalism, planning,  and self-discipline. How to Day Trade for a Living describes the fundamentals of day trading and explains the differences between day trading and other trading styles and investments. It also explains how to approach this profession from scratch, what you can reasonably expect, and which strategies can be applied from the very start.
