After using StocksToTrade for a couple months and then trying ThinkOrSwim and ETrade Pro, I appreciate StocksToTrade MUCH more... The others kinda seem terrible in comparison... You really have to appreciate what StocksToTrade has been able to build with limited resources. Imagine if they had the multi-million dollar budgets that these mega-brokerages have had to build and maintain their software.

Hi @Arussell125 I was chatting with ThinkOrSwim support and they told me that it's not possible to short penny stocks (OTC stocks can't be shorted). I was wondering how did you deal with this?

Just spoke to the Etrade support chat and told me the same "Unfortunately, you can not short penny stocks (any stock trading on any of the the OTC markets)"

Like any other broker they classify stocks as ETB, HTB and NTB, which means, Easy to Borrow, Hard To Borrow and Not To Borrow respectively. For you to short on the HTB stocks you will need to maintain an account balance of more than $100,000 with TD Ameritrade. Thats what they told me

@Arussell125 Hi Arick, I could see in your YouTube channel that you are using TDA Ameritrade with ThinkOrSwim. Is the ThinkOrSwim platform for free? Thanks

@alealvarez you can paper trade with real time quotes, you have to call and ask them.

Hi @GreTa Thanks for that, today's morning I realised that my PaperMoney account at ThinkOrSwim was very delayed. I will give them a call and ask for real time quotes as you suggested. Thanks for your information Guys :)

I think if you have a balance of more than $25,000 with TD Ameritrade they give you the Thinkorswim platform for free.

[TimAlerts] if any of yall are with IB and using TWS, before there was not $Level2 for OTC stocks. but now there is. It comes with NASDAQ Totalview, as NDQ now runs the OTC data sector. Shows NITE, CSTI, etc etc. a bunch of them. more so than $ThinkOrSwim

[TimAlerts] $DAKT o/n. In at 8.28 out at 8.62. Accidentally clicked "Sell Mkt" while autosend was on using ThinkOrSwim. Left an additional 15 cents on the table. Great trade still.

[TimAlerts] ThinkOrSwim has great tools to form trendlines and see where entry and exits should be, especially on stocks like CLTX today, your lower indicator uptrending should be MAX entry (for a long) and upper should be where you start taking profits if it goes in your favor

[TimAlerts] My first real trade today on $FORD, in 200 shares at 1.45 out at 1.56, I about broke even after commissions using ThinkOrSwim but I learned a thing or two. off to analyze the trade in my "diary".
