    I have to repeat this because I don't want people to think your question is worth answering.

    The folks who run these sorts of establishments share that special circle of hell occupied by the proprietors bucket shops and boiler rooms.

    As a retail investor, you face innumerable structural disadvantages. Higher commissions, poor trade execution priority, network latency, trading equipment, data quality, data timeliness, information flow, and on and on. These disadvantages are amplified in proportion to the frequency of your trades. If you're considering trying, or already are day trading, you're throwing your money away.

    I'm negative on day trading, period. I am specifically negative on Trading Arcades because they profit from the false hope of day traders.
