I don't deserve any respect from you but you have dissed on a few people who do. I'm no guru but you have disrespected a few gurus. When you are asking someone for help or advice, don't tell people that they don't know what they are talking about when they offer it.

Why, in an age where information is so easy to get, cant we find information on one man.
Experience is something you dont get until just after you need it.

Hektik1n, I ran into the same thing with my Ameritrade account last week. If you call them they will place a trade for you over the phone as a courtesy, at least the first time anyway, earlier than the 5 day waiting period. He did mention they were working on speeding up the process in the future for what it's worth.

USFBRIAN - QBID all the way. lol.

People on this board are awesome and know TONS of info Brian. Try to show a little humility and you'll be OK. Don't start feeling too dejected. If you ask a sincere question you will get very educational answers. Just remember that you are the student when you are asking for direction.

no you were looking to make a quick buck on others knowledge, chatting had nothing to do with it. Which one can admire your audacity, but at the sametime laugh at the stupidity of it by not taking in account your audience. *Learning arguement in English class, breaking out the big words* Had you not started to belittle people here you might have gotten a more receptive response. I still content that you find a job with tuition reinbursement or get a student loan, which i am doing both. Investing in penneis with a need on the money you got is stupid.

SUPER SUPREME MEGA RULE NUMBER 1
DONT INVEST WITH MONEY YOU CANT AFFORD TO LOSE!!!!!!!!!

that being said i hope you listened to the advice and not do the stupid thing like so many people in the pre/post 20 years of age kids do.

LOL Rags.......
Brian, Stockcharts is a good place for charts.
Microcap is great for streaming news and filters.
Alphatrade has L2's for penny's and pinks.
prophet. net has great intraday charting.

I like all price ranges, the key is VOLUME....and VOLUME with not too high O/S or float...Other wise, you can have all the volume in the world and it AIN'T GOIN' NO WHERE!

Gotta' have the Mo for it to go!!!!!

Heres one from another great veteran.

By: realityinc21

PRICE IS CONTROLED BY THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAPPINGS OF THE MARKET.

Stage 1 - Accumulation. Stock is quiet, trading sideways and without a lot of volatility. Most everyone ignores the stock because it has no sizzle. Insiders hold large blocks of stock and quietly gear up for the distribution.

Stage 2 - Breakout. Volume jumps up, psychological barriers are broken. Insiders begin to tell their friends of upcoming significant fundamental change. Pros take notice and buy the stock on the coat tails of the well informed. The public ignores it because they have not read about the company in the paper yet. It must be a scam.

Stage 3 - Uptrend. As a larger audience learns of the company and its promise, more buying comes in to the stock and it begins to climb. Pros begin to sell, but slowly. Average investor begins to buy.

Stage 4 - Pullback. The stock has gone up too fast, and some profit taking arrives. The jumpy investor who got the entry timing right but lacks confidence in his or her decision sells the stock with a small profit, and smiles in the mirror. The Pro holds on, Average Investor looks through the newspaper to find justification for ownership of the shares.

Stage 5 - Resumption of the Uptrend. The pull back is short lived, and the stock bounces and continues higher. The wannabe regrets the sell, but provides self counsel on the merit of making a profit, albeit a small one. The Pro might sell a little bit more, but still holds the majority of the original position. The Average Investor is getting excited now, and thinks about what could have been if only he had bought when he first noticed the stock.

Stage 6 - Exhaustion of the Uptrend. The media takes notice, and communicates the company's merits to the masses. The masses buy the stock, and it goes up sharply with strong volume. The Pros sell with enthusiasm. The Average Investor owns it now, and is telling everyone who will listen. The wannabe Pro jumps back on, after all, he was smart enough to buy it when the trend started, so he knows the stock well. Will hope make it go higher?

Stage 7 - Gravity Works. Pro selling begins to weigh on the uptrend, and the stock fails to go higher despite high volumes. The stock starts to go down instead of up, and the Pro is almost sold out. The Average Investor continues to cheer lead, hoping to rally support. The wannabe ignores what the market is telling him, taking a loss is too painful to consider. The company is featured on the cover of a magazine.

Stage 8 - The Second Guess. The stock bounces and starts to go back up. The wannabe Pro averages down while the Average Investor gets back to advising friends of his stock picking acumen. Pros sell their remaining holdings and begin to look for another deal to play, or perhaps start short selling the stock.

Stage 9 - Out of Gas. The bounce is a fake out, and the stock moves lower again. The public own this stock, and they have no more power to buy. The Pro are making money on the short sales now, but are despised by the masses. Calls for short selling to be made illegal are made by the Average Investor, after all, the short sellers are the demons causing the sell off.

Stage 10 - Dead Cat Bounce. The Average Investor and the wannabe Pro have no pain tolerance left, and finally sell for a big loss. The short selling Pros are the only buyers to take the share off their hands, and provide the needed liquidity. The stock bounces, and some short term traders make a quick profit. The Average Investor either swears to never buy a stock again, or tells lively stories over drinks about the one that could have been.

Stage 11 - Post Mortem. Pros have forgot about the stock and are considering carpet samples for their new home in Florida. Average Investor continues to follow the company and buys loads of cheap stock to try and overcome the regrettable loss.

The stock market is mean. You can be a good analyst, but if you can't overcome the psychological traps of trading, you will do what the crowd does. To be successful, you have be one step ahead of the crowd, and trade with unemotional discipline. There are strategies to take advantage of each stage of the market cycle that can be applied just by looking at a stock chart. They just require a bit of knowledge.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

EVERYDAY FOR THE 30 DAYS READ THIS 10 TIMES A DAY.
ASK YOURSELF 10 TIMES A DAY "WHAT KIND OF TRADER AM I GOING TO BE??"
AM I GOING TO BE A CRYING WHINNING LITTLE BITCH OR AM I GOING TO SHAKE IT OFF??
AM I GOING TO BUY TO HIGH BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO READ A CHART OR AM I GOING TO F-ING LEARN HOW TO READ A CHART??
AM I GOING TO BE THE ENTERTAINMENT FOR THIS BOARD OR AM I GOING TO GO THE LIBRARY AND CHECK OUT ALL THE BOOKS THAT I CAN READ ON DAY TRADING AND INVESTING AND STOCK CHARTING.
AM I GOING TO LEARN HOW TO DO MY OWN DUE DILLIGENCE OR AM I GOING TO BUY ON THE RECOMENDATION OF PEOPLE FROM THIS BOARD??(IT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED )THEY WERE GREAT RECOMENDATIONS BUT YOU WERE ABOUT 5 STEPS BEHIND. IT LOOKS LIKE BY THE TIME YOU WERE BUYING EVERYONE ELSE WAS SELLING.
AM I GOING TO TAKE THIS LAYING DOWN OR AM I GOING TO GET MY G--D D--M MONEY BACK.
NO ONE HERE CAN MAKE THOSE CHOICES FOR YOU!!
MAY SEEM LIKE I AM BEING A COLD HEARTED BITCH BUT THIS THE REAL WORLD BABY.
THE QUESTION YOU HAVE TO ADDRESS RIGHT THIS MINUTE IS..AM I GOING LEARN ON THE FLY OR AM I GOING TO BACK IT UP AND LEARN ABOUT WHAT THE F--K I AM DOING??
YOU DOVE IN HEAD FIRST NOW YOU HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM.
IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM--BAIL AND TAKE YOUR LOSS. DAY TRADING IS TIME CONSUMING. I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE ON THIS BOARD SPEND 5 TO 10 HOURS A DAY RESEARCHING-CHARTING-READING SEC FILINGS-GOING OVER FINANCIALS--READING NEWS RELEASES--COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER TRADERS ON STRATAGIES--THEN FINALLY BUYING--THEN THE SAME PROCESS BEGINS FOR THE EXIT.
IT MAY NOT SEEM LIKE IT RIGHT NOW BUT I AM TRYING TO HELP YOU. AS WILL OTHERS ON THE BOARD. SUGAR COATING THE FACTS WILL NOT HELP YOU. YOU NEED A GOOD DOSE OF REALITY AND I JUST GAVE IT TO YOU!! IE REALITY INCORPORATED....
THE ONLY CONSOLATION THAT I CAN GIVE YOU IS: I HAVE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES. AFTER OVER 20 YEARS OF DEALING WITH THE MARKET I STILL WAS NOT PREPARED FOR THE DEPTH OF DAY TRADING. I LEARN NEW THINGS EVERYDAY AND MAKE MISTAKES EVERYDAY. AFTER 4 YEARS OF MAKING AT LEAST 5 TRADES A DAY I AM A NEWBIE JUST LIKE YOU. IT IS A PROCESS.
WELCOME TO DAY TRADING AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR CHOICES.
REALITY INCORPORATED
ESTABLISH A SET OF TRADING RULES THAT WORK FOR YOU. THESE ARE MY RULES. YOU HAVE A ADAPT YOUR OWN. MAYBE THIS WILL GIVE YOU SOME GUIDELINES TO GO BY.


MY PENNY STOCK RULES:

1. I never buy on impulse or get emotionally attached to a penny stock--think LOGIC--I buy it, I sell it, I make money and I rarely look back.

2. I never buy a stock JUST because I like it or worse someone else likes it.

3. I rarely buy a micro penny stock trading under a volume of 50,000 mil--80 to 100 mil is better (always remember there has to be buyer for every stock you buy)..

4. I rarely hold a micro penny stock over night...My definition of micro penny is under .10 cents ..Rarely over a weekend..NOTICE I SAID RARELY. THERE ARE SOME STOCKS THAT HAVE A BUILD UP AND IF THE VOLUME IS GOOD AND I FEEL CONFIDENT ABOUT MY DD I WILL HOLD IT FOR THE RUN. At $7.00 to $10.00 a trade I can buy and sell it every day on news or hype or earning whatever. .(THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED DAYTRADING)

5. I never buy a penny stock on the way up. IE CHASING I watch the pre market trading and set a buy price and a sell price and stick to it (missed out on NEOM by sticking to my rules--I noticed it at .11 and refused to buy to high) UPSIDE IS I DO NOT HOLD 500,000 SHARES OF NEOM AT.43 CENTS---DOWNSIDE I DID NOT MAKE 50,000 DOLLARS. I DID MAKE A COUPLE OF GRAND BY PLAYING THE GAP AFTER THE RUN. IF YOU MISS THE RUN PLAY THE GAP. LIKE THE MAN SAID--THERE IS ANOTHER STOCK JUST WAITING TO BE BOUGHT.

6. I never think about GETTING RICH OR RETIRING on penny stocks..My goal is to make $200.00 a day and not lose my original investment. Most often I exceed my goal. (When I lose money it is usually because I have not followed my own rules)

7. I never ride a stock down--I will sell it and re-buy it. EXAMPLE: BOUGHT CTKH AT .002 AND .0022. SOLD HALF AT .0046. SOLD HALF OF THAT HALF AT .0069. IT STARTED GOING DOWN AND I BAILED OUT AT .006. BOUGHT AGAIN TODAY AT .0032. LOGIC-DO YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE MUTUAL FUND MANAGERS WOULD HAVE HELD ONTO IBM IF IT DROPPED 50%?????--(WELL SOME WOULD) LOL I THINK NOT..RIDING A STOCK DOWN IS LIKE THROWING 50% OF YOUR MONEY OUT OF A CAR WINDOW AT 75 MILES AN HOUR AND HOPING IT FLIES BACK TO YOU. OR BETTER YET "IF YOU LOVE IT LET IT GO--IF IT LOVES YOU IT WILL COME BACK TO YOU". THATS BULL****--IF IT LOVED YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE IT NEVER WOULD HAVE LEFT.....I have actually bought and sold the same stock 3 times in one day. ATNG WAS A RECENT 3 TIME BUY AND SELL. BOUGHT AND SOLD IBZT 3 TIMES ONE DAY. (not usually but it does happen).

8. I never insult or bash another fellow trader..I respect other people's trading methods. I LEARN FROM THEM. What the hell--It's not my money.....( It's not like they are setting on third base at a black jack table and take a hit on 15 and the dealer has a 6 showing and I have $500.00 dollars riding on that hand). I DO LISTEN AND LEARN AND BENIFIT FROM THEM.

9. I never trade with MONEY that I am not willing to lose.

10. I follow the market and market trends (not just the stocks)

11. I never buy a stock without reviewing, analyzing and understanding the charts. I learned how to read charts and believe in them...They do not lie..I MAY NOT KNOW WHAT THEY MAKE OR PRODUCE OR SELL WHEN I BUY IT BUT I DO REVIEW THE CHARTS ON THE FLY AND PUT IN A BUY ORDER FOR SMALL AMOUNT TO GET IN THE DOOR. MOST TRADERS KNOW WHEN A RUN IS COMING AND HAVE ALREADY DONE THE DUE.

12. I never get gambling and investing confused. I INVEST IN REAL ESTATE...MY BUSINESS...SMALL,MEDIUM AND LARGE CAP STOCKS WITH A HISTORY-MANAGEMENT TEAM-FINANCIALS--ASSETS--CASH--ETC..30YEARS+ GROWTH AND INCOME MUTUAL FUNDS WITH 12% OVERALL GAIN IN GOOD AND BAD TIMES (THEY ARE PROFESSIONALS AND THAT IS THEIR JOB). I GAMBLE WITH PENNIES.. MY DEFINITION OF PENNIES IS ANYTHING UNDER $5.00.

13. I always take 50% of earning from each week and e-transfer into INTEREST BEARING TAX account. THEN I LEARNED HOW TO INVEST THAT MONEY IN REAL ESTATE TO MINIMIZE TAXES. INCORPORATE, PROTECT AND SHELTER.

14. I ALWAYS TAKE MY ORIGINAL INVESTMENT OUT OF THE EQUATION WHEN IT IS FEASIBLE TO MAKE ENOUGH MONEY ON THE TRADE TO MAKE IT WORTHWHILE .IE..WHEN THE STOCK IS ON A RUN UP SELL PORTIONS AT AT TIME TO RECOUP ORIGINAL INVESTMENT. IF IT IS A STOCK I PLAN TO KEEP LIKE TFSM--I BOUGHT AT 1.06. AT 2.12 I WILL SELL HALF AND RECOUP INVESTMENT AND KEEP 5000 SHARES FOR FREE. HOPEFULLY THAT WILL BE THIS WEEK.

15. I ALWAYS HAVE FUN......ACTUALLY I HAVE A BLAST....

16. I LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY...

17. I CAN'T SPELL, TYPE WELL OR USE PROPER GRAMMAR--AND I SWEAR LIKE A SAILOR..BUT IF YOU PUT A DOLLAR SIGN IN FRONT OF IT---I WILL FIGURE IT OUT.......THAT CERTAINLY DOES NOT MAKE ME STUPID..IT MAKES ME SMART BY RECOGNIZING MY LIMITATIONS. LEARN YOURS.

18. I ALWAYS MAKE MY OWN DECISIONS AND TAKE ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY ACTIONS.

19. I LAUGH EVERYDAY..MOSTLY AT MYSELF AND SOMETIMES AT OTHERS...

20. LAST AND MOST IMPORTANT--THE MARKET HAS A RHYTHM--EACH STOCK HAS A RHYTHM--LIKE GREAT SEX--A RHYTHM..FIGURE OUT YOUR OWN RHYTHM WITH THE MARKET AND DUE YOUR OWN D.D.. LEARN THE RYTHEM OF THE CHARTS. IT IS CALLED "HARD WORK". THE REST WILL FOLLOW. TAKE THE TIME TO PASS ON YOUR GOOD FORTUNE TO OTHERS. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK.

USF
Im a junior in college much like you- and I made 800% gain on my intial investment of 2,000 bucks (back in July with GRYF, and NWPO) thanks to this board & Fo2. Then I lost it due to some stupid decisions on my part (damn month of August), and im slowly creepin back up.
At first I thought it was due to the stock itself and the news, etc, etc. But then I have come to realize its not the news that moves the stock, its the volume.
Just some suggestions.
-Watch a stock before you buy, become familar with the price range it trades in.
-Volume is key.
-Anticipation is the real money maker. lol
-But don't be afraid to be down some money @ first... cause
"if you dont play it wont pay"
Just my 2 cents..

Just to clarify, you cannot make more than 3 trades on the SAME stock in a 5 day period, you can trade any amount of stocks you want, just not the same one several times in a week. If you are flagged as a daytrader, then you have to maintain a minimum of $25k in your account.

Second, to answer your question about what price to swingtrade, not to sound demeaning, but every stock has a different price, so there's no happy medium of where to "swing trade". You have to do your own research (otherwise known as DD=due diligence), see if you can maybe spot a pattern or breakout trend, and plan your own price to get in and get out. You won't find any of the vets in here telling you when to get in and get out. They might tell you when they got in or got out, but it's your money, and you decision of when to buy and sell.

Another thing Brian. Don't use that word invest in penny land.....THESE ARE NOT TO INVEST.
Investing is securing your money....there is no security here.
Play these stocks....Get in and get out.

Yes, swing trading is a great place to start. Daytrading is for the few and long term holds in this market is for those into bondage and pain, lol.
