Started my account with Charles Schwab, still learning alot and attempting smaller trades to see if what I am learning is applicable.... struggling with some timing and terminology, but excited to learn more.

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 "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!

Hello LibertyBelle

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.

LibertyBelle Jun 22, 2:35 PM

@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.

@GodfreyS just became a fully transparent trader today! Started to dive deep into penny stocks December 2019, when I found Tim Sykes from Steven Dux youtube. Since then Ive watched all of Tim Sykes, Tim Grittani, Steven Dux, Roland Wolf, Mike Huddie, Kyle Williamis youtube videos. The Stock to Trade youtube series "TWIST' This Week In Steady Trade is very good. I've read Sykes book American Hedge Fund I also read The Complete Penny Stock Course (6/10/2020) and a lot of his blog post on his website. I bought and watched multiple time when I first got them How to make Million (3/6/2020) Trader Checklist part Deux and PennyStocking Framework Part Deux (4/19/2020) I started tracking and posting on Profitly June 25th, 2020. Started trading with my money end of January 2020. These are dates of how much I added to which accounts. Etrade Margin 1.16.2020-$500 4.14 - $500 4.27 - $500 5.07 - $500 5.21 - $500 Charles Schwab Margin 5.5.2020 - $500 7.14 - $500 Wells Fargo Margin 7.1.2020 - $200 TDAmeritrade Cash 7.21.2020 - $500

Again held too long today. Keep making same mistakes. Out for a 36 dollar loss. WWR. Had god news, spiked to 9 dollars a little while back. Downtrending chart though. Was all over Twitter but everyone disappeared after it sank. Held too long, hoping it would rebound. Should have sold for a sub 10 dollar loss but held too long. Broke the fucking rules again. Cut losses quickly. Having trouble because when I cut losses sometimes the stocks rips up. Hard to tell, experimenting with think or swim level 2, will utilize this platform more so. Firsttrade is too limited and I'm not liking it. Hope if it merges with Schwab it won't be a disaster with the platform.

Small rebound with WWR. Should I have held after the crack? Usually when there is a big crack, there is a small rebound. But the amount that I could make back might have not been worth it.

Hi Tim , this is Harry Kafetzidis based in London. I took over your challenge in August this year. I have been watching your videos, and reading Alluch's book. I started from zero. It is a lot to catch up with , however slowly slowly I am getting there. Even still early days however I believe I have to start involving with an appropriate software Could you be able to arrange a special deal for me as I guess it will take me a number of months to be able to get on with it and start real trading? also a year ago I opened a very small investor account with schwab I haven't done much with it but I still have the account I notice you do recommend interactive brokers for non USA citizens Do you think at the beginning Schwab can work or not ? kind regards Look forward to your message Harry

@timothysykes I'm a new student on this and listened to one of your videos regarding brokers & y not to Robinhood happened. yesterday $HMNY public offering screwed my positions and I could sell off AH to cut my losses early. eventually ended with $263 loss. paying commission on Schwab is much better than this nightmare. Thanks for the chat room tips. I

@dux ... I want to pre-order your DVD but I need your quick advise. I am Bahamian live in the Bahamas, I couldn't sign up for interactive brokers or etrade because of this and they have high minimums. However I found Schwab .. min trade is $1000, they accept bahamians, and they do pennystocks. So the info in your DVD will I be able to use it on Schwab??Or is there any problems you see??
