  6. I noticed when a stock breaks through a major resistance or consolidation, and has increased volume it tends to continue to go up.

  8. Hello, I was looking at options house as a new brokerage account. I use Tradeking and Think of Swim right now I'm not to happy with TradeKing. The only think that concerns me with options house is that it is so cheap They have a saying, "The cheaper it is, the more you pay" Does anyone have any input on options house? Thanks in Advance
  9. Excellent Advice, you can read all the books in the world and go to 100 seminars, but you don't know nothing until you are actually doing it. I'm not saying don't learn, buy practice paper trading until you get good. When I say good, I mean focus on the technique, not the money. When you get the technique down the money will come. -Sequan
  10. I buy calls and puts usually out-of-the money Buying more contracts is fine, but sometimes I miss opportunities On those days I'm trying to figure out how to make money later in the day

  17. Hello Everyone, I was searching on Amazon for a trading book to read I saw this: http://www.amazon.com/Street-Smarts-Probability-Short-Term-Strategies/dp/0965046109/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1281959921&sr=8-1 I'm wondering just how good the content is for it to be this high Hopefully someone here has read the book and can tell me what they think I guess if it has content that can help change your financial future, it is worth the price Any input would be appreciated! Thanks in Advance

  21. Hello Everyone, On the Insider Transactions tab, sometimes it shows 'Option Exercise at $12.43 per share' The stock usually trades a lot more than the price being exercised. What does that mean? Thanks in Advance
  22. youngsequan, What are your goals and what do you want from the books? I could recommend you a dozen, but it would be better if you were more specific. The book by Tharp is great and covers a lot of ground. Mastering The Trade by Carter is also decent. The Market Wizards series is also good. Good luck! I'm trying to make a certain amount each day from day trades I'm trying to build up my money so I can make long term trades I trade from the news in the morning I make most of my money in the morning If I miss a stock, I'm usually stuck the rest of the day I want to learn how to notice patterns, and learn some strategies so I can make money if I don't catch something in the morning Thanks everyone for the help
