Same here, wasn't sure if I could buy/sell in pre market, but now I know, next time we'll do better.

Quick tip for the trades on the open: I put in a GTC order at about 9:25 a.m. on HTGM. I can't trade premarket but as soon as the market opened I got filled. You dont have to wait until it opens to put on your order.

Also I got out at $12 a share on the open. You just have to be proactive about it. Good luck.

People are going a bit overboard with this. You would think Jesus has returned for us and the world is done with these reactions to Trump. It ain't the end of the world and things in the market will probably even out after a day or 2.

@Tunde1306 Hey pal how do you like options house? Do you feel like you get good executions on your trades? I've been with Schwab forever but it seems their commission rates are double options house..

Um I mean I started with these guys and I don't have too many complaints yet. I will say that executions seem alright for me and the low commissions $10 round trip certainly drew me in to begin with.

I'm sure you will bounce back buddy. I like you, trade options too and lol I know the struggle of options trading on paper accounts. Not being able to buy in at a middle price and being forced to buy the ask price is overwhelming. Keep your head up and I believe there will be lots of moves to be made this last half of the year. You might also want to make an Amazon play this ending of the month as popular earnings are coming out. Good luck.

Hey man im new here and im not trying to be rude but how have you gone down $2,153? did you lose it all at once? sorry im just trying to learn about everything as much as i can.

@Mikel70 Welcome and yea man no offense taken. Basically majority of my losses were lost over the course of a year. I rarely trade penny stocks I instead trade "options". They contain a lot more risk and are prety hard to get a hang of but the profit payout is massive when done correctly. It's definitely not a good starter for beginners though.

The downtime sucks though. Watching all these opportunities from the sidelines and not having the chips to participate in them.

I'm trading in my retirement accounts currently.. I've been playing DWTI and a few of the penny stock obviously since I can't short in an IRA. It's a grind for sure especially working full time and trying to trade! Keep on grinding man!

Hey Chris, I can relate to your situation. I considered taking out a loan as well, but decided there must be a better way. I ended up raising 5k from different investors on the internet to join the trading challenge in 2013, and started with $500 in my suretrader account. I blew that account many many times trading on leverage until I got control of my emotions and started taking smaller size while letting small gains add up. I now have several brokerage accounts totaling about $40k ( I only

trade part time, so I don't use all of it for trading.. I invest in other businesses as well as my own). Ultimately you have to find your own path, but starting out in the negative is only going to make a difficult journey even harder

@thealextrader it's tim's strategy, but mostly yes. I tried a few different strategies before locking in on earnings. i also add some money i get from other income streams to help it along.

Not just about quantity, its quality, how quickly are you actually understanding concepts/patterns?

@timothysykes Well for me I realize I can only find up to 7 quality trades a week. Some days there are no trades. I stay in the $1-4 range so I will not be running all over the place forcing trades

@timothysykes thats the reason why I havent made a trade in almost 1 month. Using the day to focus in identify everything I learn before getting back to trade normally.

@timothysykes also praticing short sell in papertrade, so far I am right in 4 out of 10 trades, and I think this is time to learn short selling due to market conditions.
