I think someone on www.StockFetcher.com posted the TOS code for milking the cows in the NEVER LOSE AGAIN thread.

TS has the MATRIX for trading which is great for MILKING THE COWS.

If your account is large enough, $25k or more, then you can daytrade. Start with 100 shares. Increase shares after you have mastered the method.

TOS Buy Zone from www.stockfetcher.com

input m_open = 930;
input m_close = 1555;

input time = 5;

rec t_open = if(secondsTillTime(m_open) == 0, open, t_open[1]);

rec p_high = if(secondsTillTime(m_close) == 0, Highest(high, ((390 / time))), p_high[1]);

rec p_low = if(secondsTillTime(m_close) == 0, Lowest(low, ((390 / time))), p_low[1]);

rec p_close = if(secondsTillTime(m_close) == 0, close, p_close[1]);

def long_b = (t_open + 0.10);
def long_t = (t_open + 0.20);
def short_t = (t_open - 0.10);
def short_b = (t_open - 0.20);

plot highest = if(p_high == 0, double.nan, p_high);
highest.SetDefaultColor(color.pink);
plot lowest = if(p_low == 0, double.nan, p_low);
lowest.SetDefaultColor(color.light_red);
plot y_close = if(p_close == 0, double.nan, p_close);
y_close.SetDefaultColor(color.dark_gray);
plot td_open = if(t_open == 0, double.nan, t_open);
td_open.SetDefaultColor(color.white);

plot long1 = long_b;
long1.SetDefaultColor(color.blue);
plot long2 = long_t;
long2.SetDefaultColor(color.blue);
plot short1 = short_t;
short1.SetDefaultColor(color.red);
plot short2 = short_b;
short2.SetDefaultColor(color.red);

Tman! Thank you (and, of course, TRO for the initial foray into this world!) for the TOS info. ONLY took about 30 hours of reading to find this post! :)

Any other studies for TOS? :)

OMG! Any and all of them. :) I'm so overwhelmed with all this new info. As I mentioned to TRO, it seems pretty overwhelming. BUT, I am getting it! :)

I only trade with TOS right now as I have less than $25k and fall under the PDT rule; however, I've got over $40k purchasing power...so, I'm working on it.

What I want to do is this. PDT my 3 trades each week with ONE stock (gonna do this for at least three months). Make an effort for EACH trade to be profitable, or no more than a .10 loss.

Also, I want to set aside $2-5k into a Forex account and start learning how to trade FX (seems that is where there the money is and will enable me to grow my equity that much quicker).

ANY suggestion, indicators, etc. you have will be amazingly helpful.

And, if it'd be easier, I'm macsgreen on Skype. You talk, I'll write down the info. :)

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Are you trading the buy zone? If so which cow? Where's Stockbridge? I'm in Ringgold. Walmart's calling, back later.

I'm looking at which cow to trade ($100+ cows are not going to make enough for me if I can only buy 400 shares or so (esp. when considering roundturn costs).

Stockbridge is just south of ATL...I'm 2 hours from you (maybe you want to do some tutoring?).

Milpower,
Some of the Cows are actually Penny-Increment Options. No Pattern Day Trader regulations apply to options. If you don't understand what I'm getting at:
  1. [highlight=lightgray]Holding options are exponentially cheaper than the actual stock[/highlight]
  2. [highlight=lightgray]Penny-Increment means they are extremely liquid and so their value changes almost penny-by-penny with the actual stock movement[/highlight]
  3. [highlight=lightgray]You get your money back next day, not after a three-day clearing period[/highlight]
  4. [highlight=lightgray]You gain the ability to short stocks and ETFs without having a $25,000 account[/highlight]
This could be a possible route if $100+ per share is too hefty for you.

But it sounds like you have a margin account, so I guess #3 doesn't apply to you, and you already get your money back as soon as you close out your trades...

You could consider stock index futures also.

https://www.thinkorswim.com/tos/display ... rmat=hide#

click futures, stock index Check out the market cast chatroom on TOS, click the listen box for the S&P pit squawk. Some talented traders here if you can overlook the BS. The Elliot room has some talented traders in it too. Beware of indicatoritis.
