Are any of our members into short term trading of general stocks? If so then any advice would be much appreciated. What magazines, newsletters, internet sites would be of interest for learning about short term trading? What online brokerage services are being used and offer the best information and customer service?

What's your definition of short-term?

For me, short-term is 10 minutes or less. Six hours is long-term, and very long-term is overnight. :)

Wouldn't that make you a day trader, rather than a short term trader? Is there a big difference?
