What if you don’t have 2 years? Do you need proof?

No you just have to "satisfy" them that you have. When you're filling out the form just tell them what they want/need to hear.

Tried to connect my Interactive Brokers account to verify all my trades but Profit.ly says it doesn't support IBKR. I tried submitting login credentials as the instructions said and I got an error. My first trades since signing up have screen shots, but it was just getting so tedious doing that for every trade so I gave it up. So, basically this is my disclaimer that all of my trades are legit and accurate, as you may believe looking at my stats haha! But this journey on Profit.ly began in September 2020 and tons of studying is beginning to halp my consistency and knowledge. Good luck trading to everyone, I hope to start chatting with the community more, connect, learn, laugh! Cheers!

Tim, I earned 17.6% in 13 minutes on WIMI just before close. Thanks for the tip! I was not able to get in on GAXY because Merrill has that on a restricted list. I'm not real happy with them and am thinking of switching to Interactive Brokers. Comments?

Accountability post 04/13/2020-04/28/2020 I watched and took notes on all 13 Challenge Orientation Videos in the student portal. I watched and took notes on 3 of the DVD's on profit.ly: "Penny Stocking Part Deux," "Penny Stocking Framework Part Deux," and "Spikability." I signed up for E*Trade, Interactive Brokers, and TDAmeritrade (to get access to Think or Swim paper trading). I already had a brokerage account with Charles Schwab, but I only have used that account for traveling since they don't charge ATM or foreign transaction fees on a high yeild investor checking account. I have never traded before. I will probably use E*Trade, and I have already moved my trading money into that account even though I don't plan on trading for real for at least a month. I signed up for the Stocks to Trade trial a few days ago, and I went through all of Tim Bohen's Getting Started lessons in STT University. I really like this stock scanner, but I am hesitant to subscribe. The fee is daunting to me since my only income at the moment is coming from unemployment. That might be something I can get when I start profiting. Meanwhile I'll have to learn a more affordable platform. I watched all three live webinars last week (Tim Lento, Tim Sykes, and Mark Croock). I watched Tim Lento's live webinar today, and I plan on catching Tim Grittani's webinar later this afternoon. I have reminders set for the webinars scheduled for tomorrow and Thursday as well. This week I have made it a point to open chat at market open, and I have been following the other traders in the room as they discuss their trades. I have been paper trading some of these trades to learn the mechanics. I have been making a lot of mistakes, but I'm learning from them and it's not a disaster since I'm trading with fake money. I've played with E*Trade, Think or Swim, and Stocks to Trade. Stocks to Trade has been the easiest one for me figure out, probably because of the tutorial I watched. I have been living and breathing the material these past two weeks, but I know I am only scratching the surface of things that I need to know to succeed at this endeavor. I understand the basics of trading and the stock market, but there is definitely a lot of room to build on top of that knowledge. I'm looking forward to the journey!

I'm in the same place you are I haven't really started any accounts yet this is just my second week. I get the concept and my next step is to begin checking out the paper trading.

@hpac912 Hi! There's so much to learn. I have the basic concept too, but when I trade it flies out of my head. I think that's why Sykes emphasizes watching the videos over and over. I don't think I will really get it when I'm in the heat of the moment until the patterns become automatic. I have been struggling with the emotional side od trading the most lately. Watching "Trading Tickers" right now. So far it's my favorite DVD. Grittani organized his info very well.

Hi, I do understand what you mean about the emotional side of trading. I'm struggling in that area also. I will check out Trading Tickers. I'm about to check out Candlesticks by Steve Nielson. Grasping the terminology is challenging. It's learning a whole other language.

The secret is in shorting. Just evaluate dux's past trades and you'll see it for yourself. Other than that it's simple resistance and momentum trading. The hardest part is finding a broker that has shares to short on the daily running stock that's up 100%. @dux where do you find most of your shares to short? I'm using Interactive Brokers and they never have shorts available on the daily running penny stock.

There is no secret - the longer you think there is a secret the longer you'll implode your account

Hi! I saw your question in the chatroom about CMEG. I've been using them since last August. Here's my review: Takes a little longer than a week to get setup with them. They are state certified in Trinidad and considered a partner of Interactive Brokers. They abide by NASDAQ rules and are in my opinion doing everything right. They have two platforms. I use DAS Pro Trader. It's more versatile than Trade Station. They are dirt cheap when it comes to commissions. $5.90 for a complete trade plus ECN fees of a few pennies. Trades are instantaneous. Customer Service used to be spot on. I mean I could call or text and get an immediate response. That now lags to more than a day. This is because they've grown exponentially. Of course, if you need trade help, the desk will pick up on first ring. You do have unlimited trades (No PDT rule) and they offer staggered margins up to 6:1. Use of margin trading is up to you. Just remember it's risky. The downside is they only accept wires for funding. That means your first couple of funding wires will take 2-3 business days before your account reflects it. Once you build history with them (no margin calls, pay your fees, etc.) they will auto-credit your account within an hour of you notifying them of the wire with proof. Send them a copy of the wire receipt for instance. Bottom-line is I use them every day and have no troubles. Not to mention, the Turks and Caicos make a great vacation...errrrr...business destination to check on your trading activities.

The Interactive Brokers is not supported to verify trades any more on the profit.ly website and Its been over 5 months this issue has been remaining. So i decided to upload all my trades on https://www.tradervue.com/.

@MichaelGoode Hi Michael. You mention on your blog that you do not use TWS anymore, but you are still using Interactive Brokers. I was just wondering if you are using DAS connected with IB or a different broker for the charts and L2 but use IB to execute orders. Thank you.

I don't know where I would have said that -- I still use TWS. I do use DAS Pro with Centerpoint for level 2 and charts

Oh sorry, I didn't read that carefully. You replied to someone on your blog that you still use TWS but not time and sales and L2. Do you think DAS level 2 and time and sales is more accurate than IB's?

MichaelGoode
MichaelGoode Sep 27, 18 9:44 AM

TWS L2 & time and sales is just as good but I have always considered TWS charts ugly. I have used them in the past but I just find it easier to use DAS Pro and I have to pay for those charts / L2 anyway whereas I don't have to pay for the IB L2 if I don't want it
