[Big Grin] Lots of info in these threads [Big Grin]

Thought we'd start another one...feel free to add...GLTA [Smile] !

#1 RULE!
Protect your Capital

#2 Rule
Don't fall for the hype on these boards!

Some simple and Basic questions:

What do these letters mean?
DD=due diligence (Research)
MM=Market Maker (definition http://www.sec.gov/answers/mktmaker.htm )
EOD=End Of Day
EOW=End Of Week
HOD=High of Day
PPS=Price Per Share
O/S=Outstanding Shares
POS=Piece of "Poo Poo"
IMHO=In My Humble(Honest) Opinion
LMAO=laugh My A** off
L2's=Level 2's

Also look at this link

BEFORE YOU START TRADING LEARN!
Try paper trading or
This next one you can actually open an account with "play money" and see if your ideas work

How is one "flagged" a daytrader?
To avoid being flagged a daytrader, you can not sell and trade the same stock more than 3x's in a 5 day period.
Buy "XYZ" and sell it the same day=not a day trader.
Buy "XYZ" on Monday and sell it on Tuesday=not a daytrader.
Buy AND sell "XYZ" more than 3x in a 5 day period= Day trader.
You can buy and sell different stocks...just not the same one.

Also look here

Take a look at this link

What are "free" shares?
Many People will sell a stock once it has "reached" an increase where they can sell to "get back" their original investment and then continue to let the rest of the shares "ride", these are "free shares" (ones that the gain of the pps has "covered") All of these, once sold, would be complete profit.

What are "gappers"?
http://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/gap.asp

What are settled funds?
You open your account with cash, those are "settled funds",
You buy stock XYZ , you sell XYZ to purchase a different stock,
It will take 3 business days for those funds to become "settled".
Some brokers will let you purchase stocks with unsettled funds
but you can not sell that newly purchased stock for the 3 days,
The sell of a stock is what needs to "settle" not the purchase of a stock.
Think of it as a check clearing your bank after you have deposited it.

Example:
I have $200 in a cash account...I buy 200 shares of XYZ on Monday...I can sell those shares ANYTIME after my purchase...in 5 minutes or 5 months...it doesn't matter...I dont have to wait for anything...However, this is where the "settlement time" comes in, although allot of brokers will let you buy with the unsettled funds from the sale of XYZ...I CAN NOT SELL..the new stock that I purchased...(here it is) UNTIL the settlement date...usually 3 business days...

The settlement date applies to the SELL of a stock...NOT the purchase of the stock...
