    I’d say achieving consistent profitability is one of the most challenging aspects of day trading. It requires not only a solid strategy, but also the ability to execute it under varying market conditions. Even experienced traders can struggle with consistency due to the ever-changing nature of markets.

    Next up i’d say is handling financial risk. Every trade carries the risk of loss, and day traders must be adept at managing this risk. This involves setting appropriate stop-loss orders, determining position sizes based on risk tolerance, and not risking too much capital on a single trade. The constant potential for financial loss can be stressful, and the pressure to recover from a losing streak without becoming overly aggressive can be intense‚ÄĒespecially if you trade for a living.
