@Kody They have some videos on the Etrade site, it doesn't look complete yet though. I would wait a while before opening an account with them... give them time to fix the bugs.

Thanks Pennie I appreciate that. Yes, I know exactly how you feel and I am sure that once the fear factor is under control it will feel like half the battle is already won.

I agree, emotions are a huge factor in decisions making. Back in 2008 I was deployed to Iraq and a friend of my told me about trading, at first, I was skeptical, but I opened an account and deposited 3k, a week later I was up 20k. My friend told me to sell it, I got greedy and the next day the market crashed and the company filed for bankruptcy. I got scared and left the market. A year later I deposited 11k, I had my ups and downs and in six months a lost all of it. I didn't know about these too

these tools online to learn strategies. 2 weeks ago, I reopened my account and deposited 9k, I bought DRYS at $2.32 and hold it for a day, the next day the stock dropped to $1.50 and I got out. Three days later the stock sank to 53cents, I was ready to place 13k shares at 55cents, but fear from the previous lost and the lack of strategies stopped me for buying it at 53cents. The next day DRYS passed the $3.00 line. That would have been a 40k profit. So, I am here to learn, I joined profily two d
