Trade recap for October 5th: Yawn

The likely program would be Parachat (used by InvestorsUnderground and TimAlerts). I would charge $9.99/month to cover the cost of hosting …

ONCY's lesson: Don't sell a stock if it is banging the offer

I messed up an easy trade on ONCY today. Lesson: if a stock keeps trading only at the offer (ask) and not at the bid, and the bid keeps rising, it is probably going to continue to go up. +    BOT    1,300    ONCY    false    Stock (SCM)    3.220    USD    SMART    09:32:08        6.50 +    SLD    1,300   …

How I messed up an easy trade of Opexa Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:OPXA)

In medicine they talk of “never events” or things that should never happen, such as leaving a surgical instrument inside a patient. Failing to buy OPXA on strong drug news today as it broke above its recent high of $2.85 was a “never event” for me … I messed up a trade with an almost …

Trade recap for August 26th: Scalping Vonage (VG)
