Lots of good nuggs of wisdom here. I'm almost 2 months into the challenge now and glad to come across a post like this. It's refreshing to see some long bias, everywhere I turn it seems that people want to drop the hammer on stocks-ha! I can see where you are coming from with understanding the mindset of a short seller to help with long setups--Spikeability and Short Stocking have given me some perspective on this, as well as SEC filings and the book the art of short selling by kathryn staley se

trust me when I say be patient, I learn that I was overtrading just to trade, I was making charts to look like I wanted them to look and not allow the truth to be told. I spent about 100hrs just watch the tim video's and just stop trading. I also sold all my stock at a neg or maybe a small gain, but mostly at a neg. Hard to see that money go down the drain. Study and find your style. most of all do not follow or chase the chat rooms picks. 99.9% of the time they ae in the stock that they mentio

@Hoplite99, this is a real trade...NSPR did 1 for 35 reverse stock split on Feb 07, thus the difference in price...

Hoplite99 Feb 27, 18 1:01 AM

Ahh I see but you dont make anything when it splits if your long right?

Hoplite99 Jun 21, 2:13 PM

Just say whatever is necessary to pass the application. The system tells when you don't qualify and then just change your answer to make it work. All that application is doing is trying to make sure you arent a professional trader that trades other peoples money for a living and you are trying to pay non-professional fees and rates and slide by all of the rest of the stuff that the professional traders have to go through. It isn't meant to weed out novice traders.

Thanks all for sharing your experiences. I'm a little bit OCD so was probably over thinking things too much.

Postscript: Looks like my concerns were 100% accurate. IB have only given me a 'Trading' (cash) account I can't short and I can't change the account type in the configuration. There was NOTHING in the application where I could choose this. Waiting to hear if they will change the account type for me. Seem like they randomly fuck people over.

Tone Jul 24, 18 10:27 PM

Post Postscript: So IB customer support tell me I CAN short. .......'We can see that you have a trading account with IB-AU entity. In trading account, shorting is allowed. You can place an order to short on any of our trading platforms'.......how confusing

For IB’s data I recommend (all are listed under North America) for level 1: OTC Markets ($3/month), Nasdaq (Network C) $1.50/month, NYSE (Network A) $1.50/month, Amex (Network B) $1.50/month, OPRA (if you want to trade options) (fee waived if you do over $20/month in commissions). If you also want level 2 I recommend Nasdaq Totalview-Openview ($15/month) and OTC level 2 ($15/month) Source: https://www.goodetrades.com/faq/
