I find that the only way to turn a small account into a healthy account say, 25,000, is by trading large gaps or buying or selling into momentum. In the past 5 months I'm up over 200% BUT after commisions, cut that in half. Basic strategy is: All Nasdaq stocks. Stock gaps up 15-30%, if there is heavy volume sell or buy into it. If trade goes against you, get out with a max 2% loss. If trade goes in your favor, hang in there for the ride. Anybody else trade this way? Anybody have any better ideas for trading small accounts?
