  1. Well today I opened my account with scottrade, and have no idea what I'm doing lol. I could not help myself, I was curious of getting an inside look at the markets, and while I have to re-fresh the page to get up to date info, I dont mind, its just real exciting.

    I'm just watching right now, I dont entend to trade until I get a job, can better understand candle charts, and all these numbers.

    Here were my holdings when i was paper trading:

    aapl 84.31 / 84.71 up .47

    bsx 23.76 / 23.90 up .59

    low 65.25 / 65.33 up .12

    mcd 34.75 / 34.59 down .46

    wmt 44.83 / 44.95 up .27

    because this is an online simulation, all info is delayed 15 minutes. But out of 5 stocks, only one is down... not bad..

    i'm up 3,827.40 profit ... now if I could only figure out when to sell....
  2. Keep going. I recommend you trade small in the beginning.
  3. sell the loser......
