    Hey,

    I'm a working dad of 4, three teens, one small guy.

    My wife and I have planned well with future investment through bank options and are pleased with our retirement outlook.

    I bought shares in a cheap stock prior to marriage and made a little money....we are talking a couple thousand, not bags....but had a few hundred left over and played the market to stay in the game.

    Years have past and I am sitting on these small shares in 3 companies losing my shirt, hoping they rebound.

    I have not payed attention to it, trying the let it ride attitude. But that obviously did not work.

    On here to see if I can flip my luck, make my money back and draw even, or if the advice and knowledge permits....make some small gains.

    Please feel free to message me advice or intro.

    Cheers,

    Jason from Canada

    Hey everyone, my name is Chris have been trading stocks and options for over 20 years. I use to be a professional trader one of large investment banks, but today happy enough just to be trading for myself. I love doing research, digging deep, and trying to find that one thing it’s going to impact the underlying and jump in before anybody else notices. I’m really happy to be here and looking forward to talking stocks with the group!

    Hello, I am still a relatively new trader. Been playing around in the stock market for about 3 years now. I spent 3 years prior to taking my first trade developing my own system that works pretty good for me. I am srill testing theories at this point and working on building my confidence in both my system and my ability to trade it. Started a robin hood account to play in with $100. I know that might sound pointless to most people but I am proud to say I stayed afloat in the market for 3 years and only busted my account once. And added another $100 to keep playing around. My account is now just under $1k and I feel pretty confident in my system. Joined this site to ask questions and hopefully get some answers. I currently only trade spy with options. I use technical analysis for my trades and to this date do not understand trading on fundamentals. I hope to learn from those that have way more experience in the market than I do.
    Thanks

    Hey, I'm from Canada and i'm 21 years old. Just joined couple of minutes ago. I saw about this website from r/StockMarket and thought this would be a great place to be when the market opens since this is a pretty active community. I only trade small right now with the money I have but looking to be active as soon I have more cash (lol).

    Looking to learn more from here and chat with you all

    Cheers and have a good one!

    Hi, new here. Just signed up. Wanted to know if there was a way to have the Pre-Market Thread emailed to me whenever a new thread is posted in there (basically the news sent to my inbox daily in the morning).

    If not, it's cool. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums @Luce Derek! Great to have you here. :)

    Yessir there sure is a way to get the Pre-Market thread emailed to you whenever there is a new thread posted.

    First, what you'll need to do is go to the Pre-Market Movers & News board which is located here:
    https://www.stockaholics.net/forums/pre-market-movers-news.58/

    Now see my screenshots below:

    When you've entered the Pre-Market Movers & News board you should see a "Watch Forum" link as shown below. Do you see this? Click on that!

    [​IMG]

    Then all you have to do next is simply tick "New Threads" and "Emails" option under Send notifications for and Send notifications via as shown below.

    [​IMG]

    And now you should be able to get the e-mail delivered right to your inbox whenever I have that thread created in the mornings. ;)

    Thanks so much! I was just browsing the internet for Pre-Market Watchlists that you can get emailed for free. For Day Trading mostly, but also swing.

    Hello everyone and thanks for the opportunity to share. I am Mike, I have been trading for about 3 years and generally focus on daytrading and some overnight positions. Still building up account but no longer have PDT issues (finally lol!). I don't consider myself a novice but am far from professional, maybe novice+? Always open to new opportunities and alternate perspectives. Thanks again, looking forward to learning and growing.

    Hi, I'm new to the forums and wondering where the best place is to discuss where the market is heading, investment strategies, and stock ideas. Also hoping to post my own investment and economic reports in the same place. Maybe post in my own forum to keep it all in one place? Any feedback is much appreciated.

    Welcome @MDLins223!

    The best place to keep a journal for yourself that others can view is in the Trade Journals forum. There's quite a few examples to see what others are doing, but feel free to post one of your own however you feel - https://stockaholics.net/forums/trade-journals.9/

    In the Stock Market Today forum we have a weekly thread where most of the generic current market discussion is taking place. Here's the one for this week - https://stockaholics.net/threads/stock-market-today-february-17th-21st-2020.9476/

    Finally, if you want to discuss a specific stock, you can find them all in the Stock Message Boards forum or by searching the company name/ticker. Note: the search bar requires 4 characters. If you want to find AMD for example, you are best off searching for "micro". https://stockaholics.net/forums/stock-message-boards-nyse-nasdaq-amex.3/

    Hey everyone, I am sort of new to this forum, read it for a long time but just subscribed to it. I can see that there is an active online community, this is good to know. Some forums are really dead by today. I hope to find the informations I need here and create connections with other traders.
