    I said i got a fill for 200 shares, I didn't say how many shares my order was originally.

    It was my first trade busted in 6 years of trading.
    And it was a + $1000 in a 1 min trade.

    Well ok we know, you spend that amount of money just for a pair of shoes.
    Lucky you!

    whoa ,it tooks only 10 posts to understand how things work around here, wtg!

    see you in 6 years
  7. I've been trading for 5 years and I trade Size- usually 2-5K shares/ trade. how can you make money on 200 lots??
  8. I once got filled on a 4000 share buy order$82 dollars below the market. I was the MAN for 30 minutes or so.

    stupid question for 5 years of trading..

    if you trade that long, you should remember times, when stock prices was $100-1000 in average. it was not so long ago.
    you can trade something like this-

    or you can make plenty of money, if you average profit 10-15%...
    did not see any reason to ROFLMAO on people trading 200 shares. specially from 5years pro like you are)))))))))
