you can toggle the pre/post market by clicking the little crosshair icon on the botttom left next to the pin icon. It's slightly above "Basics" on your screenshot. The white prints are for trades that took place between the bid and the ask.

No problem. Enjoy your trading journey!

The white prints are sales that took place at the same price as the previous sale. It wasn't higher (green) or lower (red) than the previous sale.

What broker were you not liking the results with? I've had most of them honestly, I liked Etrade for awhile then recently moved to mostly TradeStation, with Etrade and Fidelity on the side.

@TimeSucks I've been paper trading with thinkorswim from ameritrade. I don't know if its ameritrade or if its just the fact that I'm using the paper trading, but my orders never get put through very fast

I never really liked TOS, I keep trying to like it but nope, even the programming language is too quirky (Thinkscript)

@TimeSucks Yea I've gotten used to it, but the execution is just bad and everything else isn't what I like. It's the only free paper trading I could find, so that's why I use it.

@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.

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.

@SArtAndPlay thats actually a good tip,but i think that the biggest problem is that i put to much pressure to suceed, i dont even care that much about 20/30$ , its a small price to play for an opportunity, i think its the tought of only getting in when its 110% perfect that is holding me back

No trade is ever going to be 110% perfect, and in fact, I would even dare to say that you're setting yourself up for failure because you're not getting in any experience from trades that don't go your way. If you get into a trade that doesn't go the way you anticipated it would, you won't build any skills on how to either get out of such a trade fast enough, or how to work yourself out of a bad trade in a way that makes it less bad.

"you won't build any skills" should read "you won't have any skills"

@SArtAndPlay thanks for the advice but i have been in 2 losing trades (one one losing) and one thing i can really trust myself is to cut losses, i can really do it without slacking

This is why Tim stays away from oil and similar types of companies, because they are too affected by the price of oil and that is not something that is predictable. You might be better off not looking to make your money back on UGAZ and instead start looking at winning on a different company that isn't going to have prices drop more as you go deeper into winter.

Welcome ! In the beginning everything is really overwelming and thats perfectly normal. Over time you will start adapting more and more . Take really small sizes in the beginning to get a "feel" for the market - and soon you will be more and more comfortable. Study study study - Sign up for stocks to trade wich is a real good software.

I would say that BTSC is strictly a sympathy stock to what Bitcoin is doing. So, if Bitcoin is up, BTSC will most likely be up, too. In contrast, low float stocks like HMNY, DCIX, KBSF, KONE, etc, on the same page of their stock profile on finance.yahoo.com, you'll see that their float is very low.

MiladyMystique Nov 24, 17 4:51 PM

The float is determined by 1. how many shares are outstanding, 2. how many of those outstanding shares are not held by insiders, and I think 3. how many of those shares are not held by institutions (but I'm not sure of #3, so take that one with a pinch of salt).

If you go to finviz website and type in a ticker it pulls up shares outstanding and shares float.

That's what I learned to do, and am having a break even month. I just don't like the stress of holding o/n anymore. Every night I know exactly what I'm going to wake up to, and I'm seeing that although we have long WLs, the really good setups only happen about 3 per week.

@SFKrystal Congrats on your break even month. It's not so much stress that gets to me from holding, but the fact that I can't devote the right type of attention to my trading at pre-market open. I'm working during that time, so I can't get in fast enough to stop the bleeding if necessary.
