It is very complicated but I think for good reason. There's so many great things you can do. Imo if ToS had more shares to short it would be the perfect broker

It's the perfect broker imo. Amazing charts and tools at your disposal once you figure everything out. Just shitty on finding shares to short.

i will probably never short overnight and always use small ass positions for long overnights. all the stories of blowing up accounts makes me cringe

Im extremely picky when it's comes to holding a spot for a few days. I'm usually in and out within a day.

OK, so in terms of Break out technique I strongly suggest you read the grand father of the technique , Sam Weinstein, book called Stan Weinstein's Secrets For Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets 1988 . Still as relevant today as is Tim Sykes. May new gurus rise. Amen .

In terms of getting a video style education on market behaviour You could hardly do less wrong than watching Rainer Teo. Try You Tube. and maybe subscribe to his weekly videos. All Free. Excellent information. Very passionate about his trading.

Try switching from Candles (I know they are popular and I've read Steve Nison) to Bar chart. YOu will better be able to see how this chart is so illiqquid. Try comparing this chart's bar behaviour to a heavily traded stock like FB.. Only to highlight the behavioural difference. Clues to untrade-ability is gappiness in bar to bar movement and very low money flow (average close times Volume)

I learned from all the ones you mentioned, along with Cam at warriors trading, who also has free youtube content, along with steve nison for candlesticks. And lots of researching around where i see traders doing good i like to see a bit of how/why they do what they do.

Did trading on my own for a few years with my downfalls, discovered Tim in 2015. Have been making progression since learning his strategy . Learned from Underground as well.

I start by looking at the highest pre-market gappers then I look at charts in different timeframes to figure out how the stock has performed in the past. When I like what I see, I start plotting entries and exits to execute right at market open. I also look at news to determine whether or not there is a catalyst.

LivingLarge88 Nov 17, 16 11:03 AM

I would only trade stocks that have a good catalyst for now such as earnings winners, contract winners, Phase I, II, and III biotech trials

SINO spiked because of other shiping stocks, its pure moment, theres no fundamental catalyst here, its purely technical, dont mix the two things

If I need to look deeper I will look into Twitter, TheLion, Yahoo, and Seeking Alpha as needed.

I used Stockfetcher.com, Create FIlters. I have 100 filters that I have basically written using terms defined in Stockfetcher. Each day, I have some email me the lists with the returns in them

I am a complete NOOB, (and will always be a noob cause learning is never done) but yes a thousand times about this post. I am on my 2nd round of watching these vidoes and they are actually more interesting the 2nd time around after about a month or so of paper trading. It's not a scam, you don't need to watch another video (you should though) Trader Checklist is a self-contained treasure trove of useful information.

@Deshackled i agree. I subscribe to a bunch of news letters but i decided i didnt want to learn that way . I wanted the ability to search these on my own. Now that i know what look for a have to learn about reading charts for example candles resistance etc...

Oh okay i think i get u, U havent learned to distinguish trends yet or how stocks trend. so first i reccomend so u can get familiar with what u should already know is google "bullish patterns" now u should get stocks with some trendlines already drawn for u, Drawing trendlines is just connecting the last peak with recent peak, highs with highs and lows with lows. Now when ur on finviz, ur mind will by itself try to put things into a pattern which will then allow u to make ur plan, which should b

based on the next ressistance/support level. So to help u with entries on that u might want to learn how reversal patterns/candlesticks look (google that too) and u should have a much clearer idea on what ur looking for. Another great way to get used to patterns is looking this up on google images, "Fous 4 patterns". There is Force, Survival, and Revival (and "Gold" but its almost like force pattern) The Force is a Breakout play on a bullish trend. Survival is a breakout from a channel after it

consolidates (also called churning) after the initaial breakout. Revival is bearish trend that consolidated nd is now breaking out from the channel. Hope that answers ur question abit, let me know if ur still a bit confused

The best thing is to buy one of Tim's DVD s(HTMM or Pennystocking Part Deux). HTMM is probably the best bang for your buck while Part Deux gives you the old basics. The DVDs will teach you the basics and how to use free tools online. StocksToTrade is just a tool Tim created which combines everything together but should be used after you know the basics from the DVDs. Also, get a part-time job to supplement your income. Learn while you earn and save up the money.

I went back to analyze why some of these shippers took off like this yeaterday for example SINO Ii just put up a post with 3 of its charts. Now im going back to evry news article it had this year. I noticed from Nov 3rd to the 4th its volume jump from i think 30-40,000 to 150,000

@Stockaholic215 Know that traders may build or assign watchlists according to the setup of those stocks. In other words you may want to build a watchlst of only short plays, only long plays, long term holds, etc. If you get a list of stocks to watch put the short stocks in one list and dip buys in another list and you would name the list short only, longs only, etc.

Organizing your data is just as important as everything else. I personlly have an earnings winner watchlist, short sell, an current runner list along with new info stocks. We all have our own style and over time you will learn what to look for as far as a stock goes and how to categorize it as well
