TDWaterhouse quotes are free (real time). And free Streaming Live Quotes with a Presidents Account, or do 150+ trades and you get a free active trader platform with more advanced features (Otherwise $20/month).

Yup, but you need a TDWaterhouse account. I should've mentioned that I was talking about general finance websites (stockhouse, google finance, yahoo finance etc).

I use my TD account for free venture quotes as I so rarely buy something there, it's not worth paying another fee to IB. I have $0.01 in my TD account, so they don't close it.

Banks (WFC, JPM) reports tomorrow. If they go well, will buy at end of the day. If they do poorly and tanks more, will buy in the morning. April is the most bullish month due to earnings, so I will add 1/3 initially from what I'm planning to trade. Next 1/3 when it breaks below EMA(100) (SPY at $181) and remaining 1/3 e it when it breaks below $179. Close when SPY probes $174 or if PVO inverts. SPY might challenge $189 again, I doubt it will break out, so if this trade goes in the wrong direction, I'll hold and only close (for a loss) if SPY breaks out from $189.

I know. I'm buying some UVXY tomorrow. Maybe you want to buy some XIV....

With Roland holding HVU and me holding UVXY, then XIV has to skyrocket.... :)

Forgot I had a GTC FB order at $58.10, got the fill at $57.64 at the open and just flipped at $58.25 :)

It looked like it was going to head lower, so thought it was a good idea to get out while i can haha

UVXY at $63.8.

Will close if SPY breaks out $184.

Will add more if SPY hits $181.

With those numbers you must be holding a lot of shares to make any substantial sum of money. How much do you invest in a typical flip trade for a stock of that value?

Urghhh I really need to come up with a better exit strategy plan for FB...always goes a lot higher after I sell....Missed out on a $2 additional profit per share!

I'd rather not give an exact number of shares, but it's large enough to make the trades worthwhile.

Even if you only held as little as 500 shares of YHOO, that trade would net you $425 ($411 after commissions) within the first half hour of trading (both the buy and sell). That's more than I get paid at work, that's for sure :) .

Yeah $500 would be my optimal entry as well. I'm considering it between $510-$520 as well just in case we miss the boat. They announce earnings in just under 2 weeks, and feeling really optimistic that they'll have an easy beat on $10.14 vs $10.00 est same time PY (beaten by $0.09), considering this year should produce additional China Mobile profits.

My HVU position actually increased my paper gains so far - the remaining stocks have held up fairly well. Only FCU got hammered, but that's expected for such a small cap.
