  1. From my understanding this is how it works. Your example: Account size: $50,000 Monday - buy 1000 shares for 50,000 Tuesday - sell 1000 shares for 52,000. (this transaction also has a 3 day clearing period) Wednesday - you want to buy 1000 shares @ 50.00 again for 50,000. this is fine. ( but understand that these shares you just bought are on "borrowed money" till your sell transaction from Tuesday clears in 3 days on Friday. meaning you can't sell these 1000 shares till Friday. If you sell before Friday you will then get a free riding ticket. Second example: Account size $50,000 Monday - Buy 500 shares of a 50.00 stock for 25,000 Tuesday - sell 500 shares at 52 each for 26,000 ( 3 day clearing period) Wednesday - buy 500 shares back at 50.00 for 25,000 (now even though your shares from Tuesdays transaction have not cleared you are able to sell these shares with out getting a free ride ticket because you have the capital in your account to back it up.) Hope that helps!

  6. Hi Andrew Paper trading is a great place to start and honestly a must for beginners. Unfortunately paper trading tends to be incredibly easier than real trading for a couple of reasons 1. There's no emotional connection to paper like there is with real money. It's very easy to hold losing positions with out having much worry. And decisions tend to be non stressful unlike when your losing real $$ 2. Depending on what paper trading program your using it may not incorporate realistic prices during purchases and is much easier to get filled. There are no worries about bid / ask spread and available volume if shares are actually being traded. Just remember to start small and manage risk when starting with real $$
  7. Hi Jordy Might I recommend a Twitter account if you do not currently have one. It is a great place to connect with tons of traders and people are always sharing their ideas. I myself use Twitter to not only see other traders ideas but also to share my own in real time. You can add me @eatsleeptrade7 Twitter has surprisingly become one of my greatest tools. I look forward to sharing ideas with you.

  9. A larger BETA is going to provide stocks that typically have larger swings and larger range. Small cap stocks have been known to provide those larger swings in a shorter time frame.
  10. I use Yahoo Finance app to look up any fundamentals I want to see. It shows analyst grades, revenue, return on equity, operating cash flow, along with recent news catalyst and a lot more things. For watching a socks price action during the day I've been using Stockmaster app. I can add the stocks from my watchlist to this app and see their price action through out the day as well as see multiple time frame candle stick charts. This app does a lot more and does have a payed upgrade option but I just use the free version to have live updated prices to my phone as well as charts. Both of these apps I have downloaded from the apple store and both were free. I use both of them on a daily basis.
  11. Follow me on Social Media to see live updates on my trades.

  14. Getting the proper entry is a major part of becoming a successful trader. Big loss's lead to emotional trading, which in term leads to more loss's. With the proper entry that offers you a good risk vs reward ratio you can minimize your risk while allowing the best possible reward.You should never lose more than 2% of your total capital on any single trade.Following these two simple rules will allow you to define your risk as a trader and allow you to remove the emotional stress that trading can force on to you. Every chart has to be read differently and I don't think there is just one strategy that works for every stock. But I base my entries off good risk to reward. 1:3 or higher. So when I find a chart that offers me at least 1:3 risk to reward ratio. I make sure that my stop can be placed low enough that the stock has room to move, so I don't end up stopping out early. But not risking more that 2% total capital. Example would be $COWN My Idea on this stock was to take advantage of a major sell off or large dip. There was strong support in the 5.45 area as well as the 50day sma that was holding up. The yellow circle represents the day I started my swing at 5.50. The Red circle represent our previous low of 5.39 an area we could place our stop to define our risk. The green circle is our target at 5.95, our previous high as well a strong resistance area. so in term we are risking .11cents with a possible .45cent reward to giving us a 1:4 risk:reward ratio. Once my risk is defined I figure out how large of a position size I can do based off only risking 2% of my total capital. If a chart can not offer me these two things together then for me it is not a good entry point.
