Who does your taxes, please?
@Dragonrider Super noob question here. When buying should you put in a price that meets the seller to get your trade executed quickly (versus trying to put up your own price)? And for selling, should you immediately go to a buyer's ask to get your shares sold quickly? Anyone's response would be helpful, thanks!
@Dragonrider Hey, I see that you are a short seller, and I'd like that option as well, but I don't have a margin account. My account is big enough, but I have poor (improving, slowly, but still...) credit. And Im assuming that a credit check is standard practice for opening a margin account?
@kroyrunner HI Tim I am trying to start again with some initial loss and a break. Which broker would you recommend for starting with $1k?
@Dragonrider what's Dragonrider. I am brand new, when I open a Etrade account. Do I open a broker account?
