Monday 1/16: Completed 'How to Make Millions' DVD Tuesday 1/17: Completed funding of Interactive Brokers account
Funded Interactive Brokers account today with $10,000 starting account. It is a multi-day process: application, ID verification, ACH amounts sent to bank and confirmed, completion of pending application. But online secure funding process better than writing a check and sending in the mail.....
Testing ideas, reading charts, assembling watch lists, learning Interactive Brokers TWS platform.... $OPK loss of almost 20% 12/30 following news of failed drug result "no statistical difference vs placebo" - now in long channel / dip. Testing resistance at 9.40 but ended red on increasing volume late Friday. Breakout at 9.40 = long opportunity? Or short if breakthrough 9.00? QTNT gap up forming possible dip buy at 6.21 if it holds support. Breakout resistance at 6.65...
Even though free, I think that the Robinhood broker path is a 'knife at a gun fight'. My first broker choice is going to be Interactive Brokers using both their Trader Workstation for iMac desktop and the iOS app for iPhone. This setup will allow me mobility without having to lug around a laptop and also a desktop application for times when I can sit down for longer periods of studying charts, developing watch lists, reviewing news.... I have played with their TWS for Mac on my desktop and is easily configurable as I develop an approach. Downloaded app on iPhone today as well.
[TimAlerts] IDXG Which brokers have shares to short this right now? Interactive Brokers?
People using Interactive Brokers for trading, what paid market data have you subscribed to there? Every time I try to trade there I get a pop-up mentioning that I'm not using market data. If you don't subscribe to market data, is there a workaround for this?
Tim, today you shorted IDXG with Etrade, why is the reason that Etrade has the stock to trade and Interactive Broker doesn't, how you do you know or how you make the decision? the price of the stock are different in Etrade from Interactive Brokers? I'm still practicing with @timothysykes
Just found out I shorted 1,500 NVCN at 2.30 via Interactive Brokers at 10:11am EST, very nice, I just covered at 2.12 when I realized I had the position and to teach Kenny a good lesson about taking solid profits, don't be greedy, thanks Interactive Brokers!
