So the catalyst to go 300% is negative news from the Nasdaq people? Is there a pattern in this to look for in the future?

It's negative news, so jump on the front end if you can for a bit. I can't find any promotion, but this has to be pump manipulation. I'm waitng for a short opportunity. No telling when it will break, but its inevitable with a move like that.

Considering this is friday before a 3 day weekend, I don't think the price will survive a morning panic.

hey guys I was just browsing around and here I am. Quick question, if you have a small account and your only allowed 3 day trades in 5 days, how do you manage trading? I feel obligated to only trade and hold at end of market because I have used my day trades already. Any thoughts?

@WestSou If u have a decent account size u can do a cash account which has no PDT but does have a 3 day waiting period for ur funds to settle. Another option which isthe one i took, is to open a second broker. I have Etrade and Robinhood. I didnt make one trade today so keep that in mind. Its easy to jump in to a random play and hope it goes up. Discipline is key

@WestSou focus on earnings winners that are holding gains and are consolidating at support areas and are starting to get volume for a possible breakout...or daily runners holding gains with price and volume surge into the close for an overnight hold to close the next day.

Well depending on how you scan... if you have a scan that does PM gainers you couldnt have passed it. It closed like 3.25 yesterday and today it was almost 5 in pm

I usually check the gap, and after hours scanners in the morning and browse Yahoo Finance manually. I don't know how I missed that news item, I was looking for it.

Good day this morning! I paper traded 3 stocks, CCCR, AUPH, and still short in ANGI. My attempt at scaling in and out of the upswing of AUPH could use some work. I bought 800 shares@ $2.49, sold 400 @2.56, sold 200@ 2.62 sold 200 @ 2.85. I should have stopped here, I'm only buying into risk at this point, plus commissions if this were live trading... I bought an additional 400 shares @ 2.89, anticipating a continued move past $3, it did go to $3, but couldn't hold it and I ended up selling @

$2.82. I later Shorted 250 shares of AUPH @$7.93 and covered @7.59, continued down to 7.10ish, but better to take the move than losing it. This is my best trade of the day, one entry, one exit, minimizing commissions with a low risk trade. Overall I'm up $181 before commissions, still waiting on ANGI to crack.

I like The Complete Guide to Day Trading by Markus Heitkoetter. Talks a lot about how Important the strategy is you use to trade and has lots of good tips.

How were they? I recently read Trading in the Zone. That ones the best.

I read Ross Cameron's "How to Day Trade", it was informative and more an instuction book on his strategies than anything else. I'm just starting "The Complete Guide" I find his writing to be a lot less dry. I can't say much more about it yet.
