Stupid Rookie Questions ;-)
I am new here and somewhat new to trading, can someone help me get a handle on some of the lingo...
What is gapper or huge gapper?
What is "eom"?
What is float?
And what is "TROV" for example "ALQA is todays TROV $5+"
That's enough for now, I'm sure I'll have more.
Love this forum!

I'm not at all a guru but will try to help.
"gapper" refers to stock price chart. If xyz co. closing price on Monday is $2.00 and opening price on Tuesday is $2.50 then there is a "gap" on the chart from $2.00 to $2.50; that is, a price range where no trades occurred. Gaps can be in a positive or negative direction.
EOM = "End of Message"; meaning "there is no need to click this link, there is nothing further to read".
Float = freely trading shares. Total outstanding shares - restricted shares = float.
TROV = Trovagene, inc. stock. On March 8, TROV was a "huge gapper", opening at around $8 after closing at around $4 the previous day. So if you had bought TROV on the 7th you could have doubled your $$ in one day.

GAPPER - Stock that moves for more than one day - Gaps Up

EOM - Eye on Money

FLOAT - Number of Shares available

TROV is the symbol for Trovagene

These are my opinions.  Please do your own DD  :) Happy Trading

GAPPER = Stock moving for a second day.
HUGE GAPPER= Making another big move
EOM = Eye on the money
FLOAT is the amount of shares in entirety that are available to trade
$TROV is Trovagene, a pharmaceutical company
In the context of the sentence $ALQA is going to make a move like Trovagene did.

I will give you a few more:

PERK = Percolating or ON WATCH
STRONG = Strong with volume
BEAUTY = Stock has made a decent move, think about taking profits, if you are not long
PARABOLIC = No Resistance ready to Run
RUN = Above resistance and ready to make a gap move
ON FIRE = BIG volume and making non stop move
NON-STOP = Keeps Gapping up.

g/L and welcome to Wall Street
