Poll: What are peoples experiences with day trading?

I am aware that the general sentiment is that day trading is way too risky and will cause one to lose money, and I am not inclined to do it myself.

I personally think day trading would be too time consuming for me, and feels too risky given the unpredictability of the market.

But still, out of curiosity, I would like to know what people’s experience with day trading actually is.

Did you lose money? Did you gain money? Did you use AI to do it, and if so did that help/hurt the outcome. How time consuming was it? Would you personally recommend it?

I have made a poll below to try to sum up peoples experience, but obviously I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences in the comments.

  1. I tried both AI to day trade and then a little bit of my own money. I gained like 1% and then lost 10% on AI and for some reason thought it was “just bad luck” and would then be a good idea to use my own money.

    I then proceeded to lose about 20% of what I invested of my own money (not much, but I was overly emotionally invested), so I got scared and pulled out.

    But I don’t regret a thing honestly. I learned a lot, and now I understand many more things thanks to those losses. I also think all the people who are successful now at day trading also started off bad. So I’m happy with where I’m at 🙂

  2. Tried it – made some – lost some – generally ahead – and then Boom! Wiped out big time.

    My takeaway since then has been “never invest more than you can afford to lose”.
