Could someone help me to set up. I have a TDAmeritrade account already. Is there a better recomendation? Also, what would be the best trading app for my phone?

I prefer TDAmeritrade over Etrade personally. Interactive Brokers for accounts 25k-50k+ and for more share availibility for shorting. I am liking StockstoTrade for screening and watching charts. Don't like their broker integration much.

Accountability post 06/10/2020-06/23/2020 I watched all of the live webinars and newest video lessons the last two weeks. I finished watching three more DVD's: Short Stocking, Learn Level 2, and Timdicators. I have also started watching "Trading Tickers." I finished the audiobook, "Trading for a Living" by Alexander Elder. I started listening to the audiobook, "Fooling Some of the People All of the Time" by David Einhorn. Listening to the audiobooks while I workout has been a good learning strategy to save time. I started watching "Trader Checklist Volume 1" in my Tim Sykes VIP education portal. I printed out some checklists to practice with. I started practicing today. I didn't trade, but I watched what the stocks were doing and compared that with my plan. I transferred my trading account from TDAmeritrade to E*Trade. I got hammered with OTC commissions using TDAmeritrade, and I plan on trading them a lot more. When I transferred my account from TDAmeritrade, I didn't realize they were going to close it when I did that. I was planning on still using the ToS platform, so I had to reopen my account. I called E*Trade and asked for access to E*Trade Pro while I was waiting for my funds to settle. I watched Tim Lento's turtorial webinar on E*Trade Pro, and I set up my screens as close as I could get to what I had in ToS. I like the platform, but I like ToS better. I'll keep E*Trade Pro as a back up. I made some money playing options. I've been following Mark Croock's alerts. I also had my biggest loss playing options on $APT over the weekend. I am still in the green, but it really hurt.

Put $250 in my TDAmeritrade for the first time. Feel like jumping in a trade when I saw Tim's Alert but then I see the number 3 next to Day Trades left, plus if I get into random trades and build a bad habit, it's gonna make me pay later, so I better wait for the next morning since Dips buy Morning Panic is hot recently. Patience and keep learning.

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.
