With ECYT you bought the first green candle to make a new high but not the true breakout. Or just buy when its proven to hold support not when it reached it.

@IceMan14 it wasn't the true breakout but 10.30 was still a resistance break pm. It was still a 2.5:1 r/r but I wanted more. The true breakout was 10.40 which should've the first breakout at the open not 10.20 which was too much of a drop.

@IceMan14 Hi man. They v'been charging me around £24 commissions (2tickets/£12each)thats like $30 both ways +the fills are pretty slow, but hey they maybe changed (i doubt, unless they experiment with options now). also the software was pretty expensive then. now been with suretrader for some time and they even lowered my commission to $3.80 2tickets 1.90 each way, so I'm literally not going back to TD-UK now

Sorry, I was away last week. But too thin for me to trade

I generally find shorts by just looking at a lot of charts.... Also stocks making new lows.

This is hugely helpful, I was using USAA up until I realized the same thing. I was getting shellacked!

So how do I trade with an ECN, any websites and do they accept UK customers?

@IceMan14 I'm sorry, I guess I should've been clearer. When you trade on Nasdaq for example, the exchange is essentially an ECN. So when you trade through it ECN fees apply + your broker fees. I hope this clarifies things a bit!

Bob whats your view on PIRS ?? After hours down but chart looks very bllish and on an uptrend

jigark123 Feb 13, 18 6:06 PM

Forgot to mention uptrend with volume

Yes, they announced a $40 million financing in the low $8.00 range. So the market will have to digest that before heading higher.

Sometimes the calculation down by the different websites are not the same. It is frustrating sometimes for sure. I would go with the 6 days.

Hello Bob, when you talk about what industries are up and down where do you get this data from?

Turbobob
Turbobob Jan 31, 18 10:31 AM

I look at the ETFs for that sector

@Kody Yes just get the $150 one. DAS actually has a decent scanner for listed stocks too. It doesn’t catch them all but it does a decent job.

finviz pro and thinkorswim. STT is not for everyone even though on here there is propaganda everywhere for STT.

Thanks Bob for your watchlists. I think i get how to trade more or less. But i dont get how anyone can watch 300 stocks. Do you have a 10 monitor with all tickers with charts. If not charts what do you watch for to alert you to dig deeper for potential trades?? Maybe you can direct me to a webinar or such. I am a challange student.

Turbobob
Turbobob Jan 15, 18 12:17 AM

I don't watch them, I just have them alerted. When the alert goes off, I look at the chart and either get ready to trade or reset the alert. Every week or so I go through them and eliminate failed charts.

Well for the first time that makes since. Superman for example sends me a watch list of over 30 stocks. I was so frustrated trying to figure out how anyone watches so many. Thnx for taking for time to explain. Now when you have some time, can you go through your research how to find those tickers to put on that list every day. and congrats on your stats - 68.7% W/L is steller for sure.

The stocks on my watchlist are generally large % gainers or stocks hitting news highs that day. (So I write about them that night for the next day's watch list).

Thanks a lot! I'm 16 years old and I really want to build on my future already... How long have you been studying the market? (You're like my second mentor besides Tim Sykes)

lucas_jr2411
lucas_jr2411 Jan 10, 18 4:21 PM

It's just because I can only study the stock market 2 hours a day...
