I have been in the options trading over the last 4-5 years. Mainly trading over events. Trading earnings reports, insider buying etc.I am wanting to to switch to a little different style. I want to be liquid at the end of the day. I opened up a options xpress acount and ordered Medved quote tracker. Have been trading (stock only) whatever is active for the day in nickels and dimes. Today made 20 trades on AMD ended up in the plus. I am feeling pretty naked right now, since I am in new territory. I'm needing any info on protection should I be covering with an index I have $50k in my trading acct. I want to make 1% a day. Am I even being reasonable? I am in and out of trade no longer than 10 minutes. If you are doing this kind of trading I need a buddy please. Thank you for any words of wisdom.
