To choose the best day trading school, students should look for a training program that employs former traders and brokers and allows one-on-one interaction in a live classroom setting, with courses that can be retaken at any time. Students can benefit in this type of school from the real life experience of professionals who have retired from trading in the marketplace, instead of learning financial theory from academicians. Programs that allow students the opportunity to sit in on future lectures after they have completed their training at no additional charge offer them the ability to refresh their knowledge of trading strategies and receive professional input in their ongoing careers.

Day trading is the practice of buying and selling stocks on an hourly basis and using the momentum of the market to create capital gain. A Bachelor's Degree, Master's, and Doctorate are not required for this career field. Anyone can day trade as long as they have capital available to invest, an internet connection through which they can watch the markets, and a brokerage firm that allows them to interface with the markets. It is possible to obtain an education in this field through a traditional four year university program, or through online training programs.

Students will benefit from receiving advice and critiques from individuals who have relevant day trading experience. The best day trading school is one that staffs their faculty with former traders and brokers, and offers one-on-one interaction between professors and students. Professors and brokers can view the paper trading simulations of students and advise them on selling and buying strategies. They can point out flaws in their tactical approach from the vantage point of their years of experience before students begin investing real money.

Day trading can be performed in the marketplaces of any country in the world, so students may wish to look for a day trading school which addresses these international options. Classes should also be available that teach selling strategies based on different currencies. This type of trading, which creates capital based on foreign currency exchanges, is known as Forex, and can be beneficial for those who wish to buy and sell in multiple marketplaces. As they progress in their education, students can narrow down which countries they wish to focus on.

Many day trading school programs are available through online seminars, and the best of these programs offer on-location classes in which students can interact with their professors in person. This allows potential day traders the opportunity to interact with their peers and receive feed back on their trades in small groups. Students can network with each other and other experienced brokers in person to gain valuable insight on selecting their brokerage firms, establishing a capital base, and strategy pitfalls to avoid.

Individuals who are entering the stock trading profession permanently should consider a day trading school that allows them to re-take any seminars or on-location classes in the future for no additional charge. In this type of program, students pay for classes for a lifetime, as opposed to one lecture at a time. They can then remain current in new trading practices and refresh their skills throughout the tenure of their careers. Students are also enrolled in these training schools permanently and can sign up for additional course materials in new areas without paying the program entrance fee for a second time.
