    just want to get a feel how many positions others have on at one time....

    i use to have around 30 positions, now i typically hold around 15 positions overnight, and during the day this number tend to go up to around 20, as i use margin.

    i have a friend, he uses 1/4 of his acct value for each position he takes on, so he usually has 3 or 4 positions on at one time.
  2. 1-20 depending.

    Tell your friend to brush up his resume.
  3. I don't know if you could call me a pro swing trader but I make my living "swing trading". I just call it more of active trading. Anyhow I use Gorrila trades and Millennium traders to make the $$$. This leaves me with about 5 postions open using the millennium system and 2-3 with gorrila trades.

    Millennium offers a great swing trades service for positions being held only a few hours. Its not really swing trades but it sure the hell works. Again this leaves me with 4-5 open throughout the day.

    I also love gorilla trade but tend to use that on for my weekly holdings. The returns there are very impressive as well.
  4. Just one at a time, an index.
