could you explain the reason why you bought at 3.11? I usually hesitate buying into solid green candles into the open bc i feel like im chasing and its gonna pullback right as i enter. PULM looked like a chase at 3.11. your insight is much appreciated

Market opened at 2.80 and within a few minutes 4-5 minutes it reached over 3.20ish. I wouldn't say it was a chase since I was in on the early spike. When I first started trading, I was always chasing and as soon as I jumped in there was always a huge pullback and I would be down as soon as my order was executed. Day by day i have adjusted my entry/exit and following TIM on his strategy of locking in small profits and getting out quick. Now ofcourse there are days where I feel better and hold on

@kenjiii16 3.11 was previous resistance so if it breaks through then its considered a "breakout" and has a high probability of spiking more

I want to learn how to actually use E Trade to invest my money. I am literally clueless.

everyone has their personal opinions/recommendations. I like Interactive Brokers very much but occasionally doesnt have shares to short. You can start buy looking on your dashboard in the left hand side. there are drop down videos there. If you want to see a basic video look at Premium, Getting Started video

Good luck. focus on finding one winning strategy that suits your risks. Some people short some people long. I personally hunt for earnings winners and watch for a morning spike and enter during the pull back or I watch for a morning panic and enter on the first green candle.

@kgarcia Thanks man. So far I seem to be long biased. However, I want to learn to short.
