@MichaelGoode Hey Michael, maybe you can answer a question for me? I am not sure if it is the platform I am using (thinkorswim) or if its something I did wrong but I tried buying 1k/shares of $KCPC and i received a message saying "REJECTED: Clients are unable to place a Market Order on an Opening Transaction for OTCBBN securities. BUY +1000 KCPC MKT". I have never received a message like this and not sure why or what that means besides the obvious. Can you explain?

First, I recommend against ever using a market order, but if you do use them only use them for very liquid stocks that are not volatile. Your broker is protecting you from getting a horrid execution by preventing you using a market order on an OTC stock like $KCPC. Next time, just use a limit order and if you want to have a greater chance of it getting filled, place it a bit above the best offer

Hey Michael, are you ever using Stop Limits or just Limits?

When I do use stop losses I usually use trailing stops or I use stop limit orders (and set the limit far enough below the stop trigger price that I'm almost guaranteed a fill). I avoid ever using market orders

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael! I just started learning. I'm not a US citizen and I want to start with $800, is it possible? or I need more money? Thanks!

I have never used them so cannot recommend them but Tradezero.co is an option. But I really think it will be very, very unlikely for you to make money after considering commissions and fees starting with just $800

Assume instead that you will do most things wrong and will consistently lose money when you start trading. Your only good option I think would be to study free material (plenty out there are on blogs like mine and Tim Grittani's) while saving up to fund a trading account with $2,000

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael! Excuse me ,I didn't see your answer. Yes, I think this assumption will be more correct, you're right. I will do as you said. I found in the Internet (Tim Grittani Trading Tickers DVD) for free. Price of this DVD $1,700. I will study all material from you and Tim. Thanks a lot! I really appreciate your help!

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael, being a newbie who studies since months, I am very often calling on the right shares to buy or short but most of the time I am just too scared to actually pull the trigger. Then I often get into the position to really want to trade and most of the time do a stupid mistake with small losses. Any idea how to overcome this issue? Thanks!

As someone who is by nature very risk-averse I also have sometimes had the problem of not being willing to pull the trigger and make trades. I think that is better than the opposite problem because if you are overeager to trade you will likely end up losing lots of money quickly. What you need to do is increase your confidence. The way to do this is to track the setups you want to trade consistently so that you can see how reliable the pattern is. Then start trading very, very small (even a $100

position size). After trading consistently profitably (excluding commissions) for a period of time you can gradually increase your position size

The benefit of doing it this way is you will be correct in being more confident because you will have a record of trading well

@Jonk87 Hey guys, I was watching MBRX and I saw no filings mentioning public offerings previous to 2/16/2018. Then like the sketchy bio they are, the next morning they offer 9m shares. While i'm not surprised by this, I thought company's had to disclose previous to filing a 424b5, or can they file instantly and offer within 24hours? @timsykes @Huddie @RolandWolf @MichaelGoode didn't know who else to ask...thanks.

I have similar problem. I still don't know how exactly how offerings are made. More specific, I dont know what SEC file comes first out. Is it always first S-3, then they get EFECT from SEC and then company can do (whenever they want even a year later if they want to) ATM or 424b5? Where do I see is the offering is ATM? @tradescared, you should prbably know this.

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael! I have never made a penny stock trade before! I have studied patterns and charts before. My question, How do I execute the first trade? What would be the best broker to use for penny stocks. I most likely will start an account with $3000 ! Any help will be greatly appreciated!

MichaelGoode
MichaelGoode Feb 05, 18 2:22 PM

With $3k I would suggest either Etrade (better for shorting) or TDA. As to how to place the first trade, I know at least TDA has a good paper-trading system so you can practice there before you commit real money

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael! I am a brand new Challenge student - so forgive me if this isn't the place for this. I just watched your video on "Margin, position sizing, and you (how to avoid blowing up)"... Loved it! Great job! Very well put! My question is... HOW do I get a working copy of the spreadsheet you were using? I want to use it "hands on" while watching the video (probably several times). Thanks in advance :-) Lovin the program so far! You guys all do a great job!

Spreadsheet is here: https://is.gd/riskreward -- To save a copy of the spreadsheet to your Google Docs so you can edit it, click on "File" then "make a copy". To download a copy to use in Excel or OpenOffice, click on "File" then "Download as..."

@MichaelGoode Hey again Michael, just a quick question, is it a good idea to use Interactive Brokers to trade stocks under a dollar? They charge a per share fee for Canadians ( CAD 0.01 per share, Minimum order $1) and I was thinking if I was to trade tens of thousand to hundreds of thousand of shares of an OTC/NASDAQ stock would the commission fees take most of my profits? I'm kind of confused here whether I should find a broker that charges a flat fee for low priced stocks or just use IB. Thanks!

MichaelGoode
MichaelGoode Jan 19, 18 9:37 AM

I use IB for low-priced stocks because most of the time I am shorting them and no brokers that have flat fee commissions will let me short stocks under a dollar but it is true that taking decent position sizes on cheap stocks will result in large commissions at IB. At least for US clients the max commission is 1% of trade value. If you do trade a lot of lower-priced stocks I recommend getting another broker for buying the cheap stocks

I like it too because you can actually do paper trades as well for free, and you can backtest strategies

@MichaelGoode Hi Michael, happy holidays! Just a question, have you ever used thinkorswim? It is now available for Canadian residents which is quite funny if you think about it, because TD is a Canadian bank and thinkorswim has only been available for US residents until now. As a Canadian resident I cannot use TD Ameritrade (I'm with TD direct investing) but I would like to know your opinion about the software, if its better than IB or not. Thank you! I watched almost all your youtube vids!

I used TOS for a couple years 8 years ago. The TOS software is nice but not necessarily better than IB -- it is a lot easier to learn though

Tradestation is a decent broker but not at all good for short selling

I personally use Tradezero. They clear through vision who is one of the clearing firms centrpoint securities use so they nearly always have the HTB stocks. Charting is not the greatest but can get by with it. I had same problem being Australian when looking for a broker originally.

Hi- I'm from Australia and haven't even started trading as yet. I'm watching all vids as many as possible and looking to tee up with someone in Sydney. I need to know what's the best broker and bank to go through in Oz too. I want to do trade in US time to early start day trade. I'm starting there, very small to see how I go.

@MichaelGoode ... just a quick note to say THANK YOU for the teaching on SEC filings! WOW, there's a few things that I would have taken note of reading those things, but I would never have picked up how sneaky some companies are, so I really appreciate that info (and all that just from disc 1). Now, onto disc 2! I hope you have an awesome weekend.

MiladyMystique Dec 10, 17 11:46 PM

Oh, absolutely! The bit about tax paid vs tax accrued was worth the price of the set on its own, really. That would save tons of people a lot of heartache if they knew that bit of info.
