lol I love calling ETrade. They’re fast-talking customer service guys are straight to the point. They sound like cocky wallstreet bros. “Congratulations, you’re the first person to ever ask me that question.” I was trying to see where I could get a “Day Trades Left” count on ETrade Pro a week or so ago. It was maybe the third time I’ve called them and I love it, feels like I’m talking to a regular person. We found the solution a minute or so later and he even chatted afterwards about my trading strategy and PDT. Maybe it’s just the “Elite Member Support” guys. Interactive Brokers’ people sound stressed and annoyed. Starting to really enjoy ThinkorSwim as well.

Damn.... FCEL is off of the table. Had ETrade given me my damn 10k shares, I'd be up about $900 right now.... It's too close to long-term resistance for me now. Anything this far from ideal entry at 0.38 is gambling, and even if it does pullback to ideal entry, usually the first rip is the biggest, because of the huge buildup of market confidence. All others after that are usually smaller and sketchy. Still watching though. --- 10:25AM: Nice pullback on FCEL. Not good enough for me though. I've already wasted one day trade today. Even with Thursday closed, I don't want to waste another.

In and out for an exact scratch on BPMX with the MDR. Tried to reenter at 1.01 but it ran without me. Just gonna watch and see how this one pans out. Very clean dips down to key pricepoint 1.00. I really wanted it at consolidated support around 0.95, but at the same time if it breaks below a key pricepoint of 1.00, it may never be able to break back above it; so that's why 1.00 is a better entry. This theory proved correct as it truly bounced from there, but the bounce isn't nearly as explosive (price or volume) as I'd like, so it's not the best position to hold for very long at all. With 5k shares, just 0.15 cents would have profited $750. Great trade, as I got a little experience getting a partial 2600 and then 3100 share total fill with ETrade, having to cancel the remaining of my total 5000 share order. So now I know how to do that =) . Sharpening the knife!!! Better every day!!!

I've been averaging trading only three days per week for a month or so (given my schedule and quite simply there not being perfect setups every single day). This seems to confirm that six day trades should be enough, even for *potentially* sizing-in (blegh). Interactive Brokers seems cool and there are certain aspects that I've come to like in my limited time using Trader Workstation; but ThinkorSwim has grown on me and I am IN LOVE with ETrade Pro... I'll stick to just two accounts and after getting over PDT, I will GLADLY combine everything under ETrade =) =) =) --- Round of applause for StocksToTrade, as it hasn't crashed in nearly two months (it definitely crashed multiple times per day before that). Could be the updates, but I largely suspect that it just isn't ready for broker integration. As soon as I removed my brokerage accounts (and you have to click remove AGAIN after they disappear to remove them from the background), it began to move at lightning speed, with not even one error message, started loading much faster and yeah; it's not crashed even once. So I'm pleased =) ... My trading tools are fitting like a glove!!!
