Hi Tim, I love your work and am studying by butt off! I've just joint Interactive Brokers with a small account ($1500) however they say I cannot trade US Penny Stocks unless I have over $20,000 in the account. Is this the case with all brokers?

Hi there, I'm new in here. I'm located in Australia. I'm still in the process of getting my brokerage account with Interactive Brokers set ups and funded. I look forward to a patient journey along the road to being a successful day trader. So lots of study to do

@ETrickett8 yes, there are certain criteria you have to meet when filling out the application. Two years plus trading experience stuff like that. The have live assistance which is a great help. Good luck.

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!
