How is it that it's possible to make any money with all these fees? Unless you guys are moving around much bigger amounts than me. I find it difficult to "day" trade with bitcoins simply because of the commissions.
I don't know man, let's check.... hmmmm

https://www.bitcoin7.com/index.php?show=trade

Lowest ask price: 14.69 USD
Lowest ask price after 10 traded bitcoins: 15.00 USD

Highest Bid Price: 14.38 USD
Highest Bid Price after 10 traded bitcoins: 13.35 USD

Effective spread for a 20 bitcoins margin on Bitcoin7 which might be well within the ~200 daily volume: 1.65 USD (11%).

Now take out the fees from the 11% profit margin and you find out how much money you can make during a day? Is it difficult?

Wow, daytrading seems to be a super bad idea. I was just looking for a way to stop my loses during the $30 - $20 crash.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Just jump into the fire and start, that is the best way to learn. 

Deposit $100 (or whatever you can afford to lose) and try it out. 

If you like it then spend more time to become a student and eventually a master..

It looks to me like arbitrage would be workable. The exchanges seem to be pretty out of whack sometimes but I haven't looked into the costs of moving BTC between the exchanges. Besides the depth is so small on most of them that you'd be waiting to find a trade most of the time.

Has anyone explored this more fully?

Jesus H Christ Horkaborka, you have a LOT of excess time and writing power. :p

You should imo write some DIY Teen Angst Wolf-and-Vampire novels and self-publish.

I'm not even kidding; add in some of your classic sillyness displayed on the forum already and I'm fairly sure a piss-take on Teenlight and Hairy Otter would sell quite well. And even 5000 copies at 99c are already a well spent 3-4 weekends (which, at your volume and speed, I would assume to create > 250 pages).

Ho-Hum.

 Just initiated a small transfer, add that to $90 Iv mined (wowee) and should have a bit of fun playing about. Thought about making a larger transfer to make the trades more worthwhile, but a bit too risky for me at the moment given the recent mt Gox incident and Iv never done it before. Maybe if I have some success I will consider trading for more than a fun hobby
