Hi there, I want to buy and sell shares during the day. I work offshore in the oil and gas industry so I have a lot of spare time when Im not working. I also have a lot of money to back myself with share trading. I would like to do this for a living. The problem is I know nothing about it (yet). I just bought my first shares last month and did well. I used Westpac to buy these shares. I would like to watch the shares more closely and buy and sell frequently by the seconds/minutes/hours during the day. From what I have gathered is Westpac doesnt allow you to do this. I was in a hotel foyer once and a guy explained how he did it for a living. His laptop had some software on it and had all kinds of different graphs and tabs for this and that and the software calculated the risks and best times to buy and sell. He would buy one minute, sell 5minutes later and make $50.
How can I do this? What company or software is best for this? Do I need to be trained for this or go to a seminar?
Please point me in the right direction to get started.
