Hey everyone. So i have decided to open an account with IB starting next month after i get all my college Courses set! Im going to open an account with IB of $5000. Im just opening it to get my feet wet before i start to day trade (25k) But i need to make a little more money from my 2 jobs!. Im kinda stuck between 2 options right now, here they are Number 1---With my only 3 trades Per week with only a 5k account should i Go long on a couple stock, like lets say BRCM is SO LOW right not, like last month it was going up to 21.00 a share, now its at 10.00. It dropped so much. SO i was thinking going long on that stock and wait for it to go back up to 20.00 or whatever. DOes that sound good? and the same with other Stocks! Number 2---Just make 3 good Day Trades and just wait untill next week to start trading again because i would of run out of trades that week because of the 5k only 3 trades a week deal? Im liking Number 1. Because i have been watching BRCM and BRCD for a while now, and they have been basically at 18.00 to 20.00$ a share, and now they both are hitting the 10.00$ a share line. So if i lets say bought 200 shares of BRCM right now and waited till it went back up to 18.00 to 20.00$ a share i would do pretty good. Might take a while but still. What do you all think? Thank you for your time everyone!!!!!
