    How about stocks like goog bidu aapl?
  3. RIMM options make sense for day-trading options, but they are risky. goodluck.
  4. The bid-ask spread may be the most important thing to watch.

    Even a moderate movement in the direction you expected may not be enough to overcome the spread when daytrading.

    So, make your choice: either swing-trade options, or daytrade futures.
  5. I use a limit order and go in between the bid and ask. I aim for half way in between and this usually works.
