    It is all about managing your risks. I am going to watch carefully as the market opens in 10 minutes. If I do buy, it will be only for a matter of seconds or minutes.

    I am a little disappointed in the delay. This is going to be hard to judge now. I see I might have been able to change that in the initial setup. Lesson learned.

    It looks like you if you place an order, you get the price that it was at that time. Since the data is delayed, the price is delayed. The market fill was good on one order and I'm waiting to see about a limit order.

    I learned the hard way about delayed data. I had an ING account for retirement, and started learning about options. I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting fills at the price that the shown on Yahoo Finance.... what an idiot I was, but I had no idea that there was such a thing as delayed data

    There shouldn't be any delay IMO. If we do another, I will change that if you all agree.

    It will still be fun...but 20 minutes in day trading is an eternity.

    So I found that I can edit the game. I haven't changed anything. If you all want, we can change the delay or any other setting for that matter.

    If no objections, I will change this after markets close today. The lowest it offers is 1 minute.

    Ok, changed the delay to 1 minute and fixed the outrageous commission fees. Now they are $5.99 for Market and $9.99 for Limit orders. This will work much better. Rankings are updated every morning so check in to see where you stand.

    I am taking caution in today's market. I will probably wait to see which direction things go first before I dip my toes. Even then, I do not plan on keeping the stock long as things could change at any time for just about any reason. I expect lots of turbulence today.

    The market will quickly go back to worrying about the Fed Rates, and earnings.................It may take days..........but it may have already happened
