    Does anyone out there trade just one stock day in and day out? I want to trade a highly liquid stock like GE for dimes throughout the day. Scalping I guess?? Any feedback would be appreciated.
  2. i trade strictly IBM

    Trading just one stock doesn't work for my risk management. The more the merrier I say.

    No, not just one stock but a very small group. I also trade related futures. When I first started out I did concentrate on trading a single stock, learned its market, and started learning the market for other stocks. I then branched out to other markets. This strategy has worked well for me.
  8. I usually only trade one stock in a particular day, but I don't see the advantage in never switching to another stock. How can one stock provide the best trading opportunity every single day ?

    I used to trade only one, and that had an advantage as long as I wasn't applying any kind of risk management. It only works if you really know what you are trading inside and out, then you can focus on it better but its just a bad idea if you want to manage risk.
