After purchasing the Investors Underground DVD's (on a "discount") it's back to study. Any trading this week will be strictly paper trading. I'll put up some comments on the DVD's once I've gone through them a bit. Should be a good watch and hopefully useful.

Hi @cuanellis - Optionsxpress (OX) commisions are about $15-$25 each depending on the trade. If they charge you more bug them about it as they can make errors. Only happened once to me. I can't recommend OX for shorting stocks unless above $10 shares. Suretrader or Robinhood would prob be the place to look if you're doing Pennystocks.

I've watched 95% of both IU DVD's now. My confidence has shot up a lot but there are minor issues. Searching for daily Watchlists isn't executed well. Guru's seem to never explain this properly. No point learning to trade if you can't research!!. Also involves shorting pennystocks so be sure you want to do that and you can find a broker to do so. More info on brokers who allow international clients to play Pennystocks is a must. Info is sketchy!

The IU "DVD's" (online only) overall are excellent and what I was looking for. For those in the USA they're great. Not in the USA know what you're getting yourself into first. 9\10

I started off with an account size of 10k and later got an extra 20k deposit from a friend. I tried Tim Alerts and Investors Underground, because I was not so secure with my own style at the time. I couldn't keep up with their trading style while having a full time job. When I switched back to my own style which is swing mostly with volatility plays I started killing. I don't have time to day trade, because of work so swings it is. I've f*cking killed it since switching to concentrating on volatility plays. I almost doubled up in 6 months.

Congrats, looks like we may have a lot more volatility ahead of us, hence I found your trades in UVXY. Am fairly new to trading, but have studied the market for years, so similar to your background. Good luck trading and I think you will nail the next 6 months at least. If you have brief minute, any tips for a noob are apprecitated.

One thing I would say is I got noticably better when I stopped trying to trade everything and concentrated on just a few charts. I pretty much live and breath the /ES and the /VX now rather than trading everything. But that's a much different approach then a lot of people on profit.ly. It's just worked better for me.

Thank you, I'm slowing finding myself that way too. Too many balls in the air not good for the new juggler:)

I just transferred $$$ to my new account with Interactive Brokers. My other broker was not even listed here, and they were very limiting anyway. Over the 10 months I have been reasonably successful investing in large/mega cap long positions. I'm very excited about getting started here with small/micro cap and short positions. I'm starting Pennystocking Silver, but Investors Underground looks worthwhile too. I plan on making a shit ton of $$$ here!!!

So February was the last time I wrote on my wall since then the market has kicked my ass real nicely. In the past four months I have refunded my account like twice or so. Reason why I'm writing on my wall is because my whole mentality has changed. First and foremost Suretrader is a huge piece of crap for trading OTC ...learned that the hard way ...with that being said Im only trading NASDAQ s . Also Im gonna unsubscribe from Tim Alerts and Join the Investors Underground chat room ...Those guys are on point and very humble . Overall since I stared trading about 6 months ago Im negative $2,400 ish maybe a little more lol. The market has kicked me while im down but I get back up and keep trying and that's what I will continue to do ... Today I profited $1,240 trading DRL
