Since I bought my combination of stocks, stock options, and eminis 9 trading days ago on the 2nd of August, my universal IB account is up 100%. My question is: My broker friend is saying that this is just the beginning. The markets will rise alot more. He hand fed me the exact stocks, options, and futures contracts to buy. Should I trust him and just hold on? He told me to "roll over" the stock options and buy next month's expiration. Or should I take half or all profits off the table? I want to become a trader, but at the same time, I see that buy and hold investors generally make more money than day traders (not floor traders). So, please take the poll and let me know your thoughts.
