    as a daytrader I trade 2,000 shares at a time let
    it run and jump ship with a 1/2 gain I mainly trade
    in the mornings seems like the bounce is best then.
    I use no stops as I feel the market makers see them
    and stop you out.

    I :p

    Not sure if the MM's really see the stops, but I put them in and take them out all the time just to screw with them for sheets and giggles incase they do. :)

    My shares size fluctuates from 100 to 10,000

  3. Yeah and.... what's your point? 2k shares in GS is A LOT different than 2k shares in GM or INTC.

    You don't use stops ehh?? Do you take losses or do you wait for the a "1/2" gain? BTW, 1/2 of what? A tick, dollar? What?

    C'mon already, these useless posts with absolutely NO INFO are starting to annoy the f--k out of me. At least make an effort to post something with substance.

  4. if you are trading index futures - I have understood that no one can see the entire electronic order book ---- is this accurate?

    stocks, to me shares means stocks

    so I thought!:D

    you don't have to answer this.. trading is a very lonely
    profession I just like to see what other traders trade
