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.

WYNN is penny increment .10 spreads. In TOS go your trade tab, all products, type in ticker. The options will populate. Be careful with these.

I'm going to trade RIMM using BZ. Am working on another option to compound my gains.

Anyone still milking the cows?

I am getting mixed results with the daily and hourly buy zone with aapl.

Daily buy zone works great, but aapl only have 1 or 2 daily buy zone opportunities. Sometimes you can let it run and take a dollar, sometimes you take 5 cents.

I get frustrated with the lack of opportunities with the daily bz lol (mostly because I feel like there are many opportunities outside the daily bz that I am missing)...so I've been trying the hourly buy zone, but with inconsistent results.

Anyone in the same boat?
