  3. Sorry, I'm confused. Are you asking if someone knows what the payout is at the company you're working for? Shouldn't that have been settled prior to accepting an offer? Maybe check with your manager or HR.
     
  4. draggleking:

    From your PnL graph, you seem to have a lot of stocks where you traded 100 shares and with a profit of $1 to $10 (or loss $1 to $10). Are you for real? I don't know what kind of commission rate you are paying. But the commissions can eat you alive (e.g. if you pay $7 a trade, $14 round trip). Unless you pay $0.01 per share.

    My question is: Why do you feel you need to trade 20 different stocks everyday? Most of them are non-factors, with gain/loss of $1 to $10.

    I would say focus on only a few that have the best reward opportunities and save yourself from being too distracted.
     
  5. I have been trading the same few stocks for years. I know em well, its like being married for 30 years :)

    I guess I am a defacto Market Maker for them including related options :)

    OP,

    Everything these gentlemen have stated and I would add….

    You are literally all over the radar screen with regard to volatility – different stocks (especially ones with higher ATR’s/ the more volatile ones) require more experience to trade successfully - imho

    Find one stock with a .50 to .85 cent ATR, and > 1M shares traded per day – and stick with it – till you’re consistent at winning and losing (you will always do both)...

    Then add another stock – wash, rinse, repeat – and slowly build up you repertoire of tradable stocks.

    Regards

    I guess he's asking what the commissions/payouts are outside of where he trades from.

    China has very low payout. I think in the US you get at least 30% to start minus some costs such as seating charge, you can get higher payout rates if you make more profits.

    He's with a prop company so doesn't pay commissions, gets rebates actually.

    learn some basic math dude LOL
    .01 a share is MORE than $7 a trade lol

     
  10. Excuse me? 100 shares for $0.01 a share is $1.00. Is this more than $7 a trade?

    Did I get my math wrong?

    Please double check the post before you laugh.
