This week’s selection is “How to Day Trade for a Living: A Beginner’s Guide to Trading Tools and Tactics, Money Management, Discipline and Trading Psychology” by Dr. Andrew Aziz.

Day trading? Isn’t this publication about 3D printing?

Well, it is about 3D printing, and there is a direct relationship here. It turns out that there are quite a few 3D printing companies that are publicly traded, meaning anyone — even you — can in theory invest in them. We track these companies and their values each Sunday in our weekly leaderboard.

We’ve been watching these companies rise and fall for a couple of years now, and it is pretty clear that there is usually some logic to the shifts in value. Because of those shifts, it’s possible for smart investors to actually make a bit of cash by investing in these companies — and then selling when the value rises.

Most Fabbaloo readers are probably unfamiliar with the process of buying and selling stocks, but it’s not rocket science. There are plenty of services that allow you to do so, and your expertise and familiarity with the 3D print world puts you ahead of many of the general market analysts, at least for some of these 3D print companies.

But how, exactly does one do this investing? This book explains the concepts of trading, specifically focusing on something called “Day Trading”. It’s the practice of buying and selling a stock over a short period of time, even as short as a day.

Even if you’re not doing that, and instead “holding” the stock for a longer period, the book still explains all the basics of how to trade, and in particular how to set up your investment strategy. It explains different methods, and offers strategies for selecting a brokerage service.

While many readers may not have considered using the stock market for investments, it can be quite profitable, and your knowledge of the 3D print space just might give you an edge over other investors.
