Stock Trading

Some live off of trading.  Some don't believe the market exists.  And yet our club owes its existence almost entirely to a 700% gain in stocks from investing its initial ASUC funding.

One of the club founders has written a trading guide as well as a virtual trading system free to use here: pftq.com/stocks/

The Berkeley Investment Group contest is so easy to win... I gave myself an intentional 50% loss to start and still came out on top. -_-

Recently picked up a new screener program called EquityFeed.  It lets me see breakouts the very second they occur (instead of 15-min delay like w/ TDA).

Really exciting stuff but there's now so much data I can't actually look through it all.  If anyone wants to help at 6:30 each morning, please let me know.  The nice part is all the stocks that come up now have very good charts - just gotta pick the best one. Grin
