Re: I want to learn what you guys are doin' :-)

Thanks I also have TD Ameritrade, and the ThinkorSwim platform but haven't figured out how to use it yet. I am being cautious and in the Pit most of the day trying to figure out what people are doing. It looks like most stocks peak out by the time a post is made about it.

When you say papertrading is this just practice without using real money? I'll need to check that out. Thinkorswim seems very complicated but I'll have to figure it out.

Re: I want to learn what you guys are doin' :-)

Try paper trading first, that way you won't lose money as you learn what works vs what doesn't. Keep in mind that not all people in the pit have the same trading style. Some I really like, and some I flat our avoid. You'll have to see which works best for you.

I have TD Ameritrade, and use their ThinkorSwim platform. It allows you to chose to paper trade when you sign in, instead of using real money. Might be worth checking out, or something with similar features.
