Traditional finance would say overtrading is a problem that plagues individual investors for the following reasons:
- Overtrading generates a lot of unnecessary commissions
- Overtrading means you are not focused on getting quality trades.
Tastytrade disagrees. Commissions today are the lowest they have ever been to the point that they are insignificant to the bottom line of retail traders. “Quality” trades do not exist, but rather you can increase your odds of success by trading high probability trades as many times as possible.
