TRO, as far as price action, are you talking just about opening or throughout the day. I've attached chart and if throughout day, I'd like to know if you took small trades all day as it went down or just .10 - .20 BZ trade?

Thanks...Rando

Tro, can I ask if "milking the cows" is this the same as fading the gap? Or is it just the buyzone of a new hour or open of the day?

Also, is this just normal share trading? You buy 300 shares, price goes up 10cents and you profit for 300 x 0.10 ??

You mentioned that day trading in stocks requires a minimum $25000. I'm not in a position to invest that sort of money at the moment, but I just wanted to know how this all works, as this seems like its really easy!

Also what broker are you with for trading stocks?

cheers.

The first MILK THE COW trade is ALWAYS a gap fade. And you only take trades that fade the gap until the gap has filled.

Yes, 300 * $0.10 = $30.

Yes, to daytrade in a MARGIN ACCOUNT you have to have $25,000.

You can daytrade in a cash account but it takes up to 3 days for the trade to settle. You can split you cash into thirds. So Monday's trade should be settled by Thursday. Tuesday by Friday and Wednesday by Monday.

It is SIMPLE. It only gets easy after practice.

Thanks for clearing that up!

I must say, american stocks are much more volatile than the stocks on the ASX. I have a stock portfolio on the ASX, so I know about the 3 day settlement, guess the same rules apply for trading the nasdaq (It would be for all the stock markets correct?)

The only thing I find with stocks is you must put up a lot of money to get any sort of decent return. Even $50,000 worth needs a decent move of a stock to get a decent return. I suppose this is just a cash account, what types of margine is allowed with stocks, does it allow as much as forex (100-400 to 1)?

4 to 1 margin for stocks.

So $25,000 let's you control $100,000 worth of stock.

Say you buy 1,000 shares of AAPL and make $400 a day.

If you trade 250 days a year, that's $100,000.

If you make $1,000 a day, that's $250,000.

That's not a bad annual return on your money.

THINK ABOUT IT!!
