I am having that issue with Etrades at times. It could be many factors! Internet burp, personal lack of decision, or e-trade. It is very easy for me to blame E-trade for not getting in there, (or out). So, I'm too new! can't really help you:(

Thanks I will think through this.... Max $ loss / stop loss per share = # shares.

@huperauxano Yep always keep $ loss the same no matter how much money you invest per trade :)

@Chongette32 that's how i work it out too. I used to say a $200 loss was ok relative to my account size, but in reality it was too large for me mentally.

I am starting out as well. I think it is OK to start with a loss and learn from it rather than hold on to the idea of a 'perfect start' to your investing efforts. Good luck with your 1st trade on Monday!

to answer your question, yes you can on etrade, you just have to call them and set it up. there fees for trading after hours and premarket. call them and set it up.

@Centaurion Thanks for sharing!.Today is my First buy! I bought at $1.23 about 10 AM and tried to get out at 1.56-1.59. I couldnt get it done. I am still in there trying to get the fees covered (only bought 100 shares) I need to buy more shares in the future. Its been fun though!

I don't rush into a trade like that. I mean if you notice a stock literally the second it's breaking a morning HOD then I'd wait for the pullback which generally happens. Other than that I buy anticipating a breakout early. If you look at my MYOS trade today I bought at 2.60 because it was making higher lows and I was anticipating the breakout. I didn't get stopped out when it dropped to 2.40 soon after but that requires keeping emotions in check. I buy anticipating the breakout because often st

ocks double top (like today MYOS looked like it would so I sold) and it gives me room to exit with a profit even if it double tops. In the past I would often buy right as a stock is breaking out only to have it tank soon after and I'd take a loss.

If you feel the need to buy without really having the time to double check everything then try taking half of your desired position then take the other half after the breakout is confirmed
