    I'm going to start trading next week, for a prop firm in NY and was wondering if anyone would offer any guidance in terms of particular stocks or particular strategies for the opening...I have read about 10 books on daytrading, but they all seem to overlook the most basic element--picking the stock. I can read charts, pick breakout points, bottoms, patterns, etc., but how do I find or rather settle on my first basket of 10-20 stocks that I should watch?

    Also if anyone would like to extend any of their general trading wisdom, on the first 6 months or longer, I'll be happy to hear it.

    Go find Hitman's journal. He offers up a list of stocks he trades. He trades at Worldco. Is that where you're going?
