    Haven't started yet. We have three right now. Anyone one else want in? I am thinking we give it until next week. We can start early next week if that is good with you all.

    I could have set them lower but it recommended this as default. We can change that later but it is something to keep in mind. Takes $40 to cover a full buy/sell trade.

    Haha Jmay, that is how we all learn. Share your successes and failures. I have been playing around with day trading for about a month now. The first week was terrible. I crammed and crammed that weekend. The second week was still bad but not as bad. I found a few new strategies and tools to work with and the last two weeks have been in the green. Last Friday I made $700 on a $10,000 investment in about 15 seconds. Of coarse this is all play money as I definitely am not where I need to be to wager real money.

    So the start trading date is tomorrow? If I do buy anything I won't be holding it overnight. Need to see how the election goes.
