[TimAlerts] I am new to IB and came over from ST. I am pretty bummed to not be able to find shorts and hear ST and ETrade has them. Now I just got a notice for a forced buy in for $ADES.


@timothysykes Have to show this so you can warn your subscribers. ETrade has COUP posted as beating earnings when in fact they missed and the stock tanked $4 a/h. look at the yellow line just above the Extended Hours quote. Such Bullshit to post bad info. The date is clear at the bottom today's date. You may use the SS if you make a lesson.

Etrade never has been nor never will be accurate with their #s, but the #s themselves don't matter, its all about the reaction to earnings

[TimChallenge] Trying to figure out if I could short stocks less than $5 on ETrade, I set up a short on $CNET and it said the borrow rate was 96%. WOW


Made a couple good trades this week....Made OK choices considering I am green...I suppose I will be green forever as there's stop sign for learning in the market. ZNGA - Bought this as a swing trade and made out with a tiny profit. I went into this trade because I identified a pretty clear support level at the time. I went in like .02 cents above support and I paid for it. I should have bought at 2.68..instead I bought at 2.70...Nonetheless, got out a little in the green. ECRY - Bought as day trade. I knew this stock was going to be pumped like crazy...Stock Tips is getting paid $5.5 million to promote this company. I tried to buy pre-market (around .13 at 7:00am), but ETrade does not allow you to buy pink sheet pre or post market so I missed the 100%+ increase...Fine by me...I still made profit, and I'll gladly take it. ETrade executed my BUY wrong and corrected it for me which made my day :)
