btw did anyone ever hear anything from that new RobinHood broker with $0 commissions? I entered my email on their site like last year and haven't heard anything since
Nothing. Their Twitter has been ghost for over a month now. They claim they are giving beta codes out but my place hasn't moved a bit.

For options too?

I may have to open up one if they're giving that many away.

They put out a new one? Or that one from June?

They email it to you? Didn't know they had an email list.

edit: just signed up for it

I gotta read the fine print today. I thought about opening an account just to use the free trades then going back to my regular brokerage account once i use the trades up

It's a new letter revealing a dirty secret behind the zillow/trulia marriage.

The one in June was titled big problems at $Z. I have yet to read it

I gotta find new firms that send out free letters talking about investments. Has anyone heard of Muddy Waters? Muddy and Citron are both free and advise which stocks are good and not so good

I read that one they put out in June. The stock had a pretty good pullback from then too up until the last 2 days.

Yeah I follow Citron and Muddy Waters. Gotham City Research is a big one too, but I'm not a fan of theirs. From what I've seen Citron is by far the best. They've nailed damn near everything long and short since I've been following them.

BID.. another long I'm in. Monthly downtrend broken through with a reversal pattern as well. Bullish options activity in October and January (from April) pricing for a move up to $50.

Same deal for VIX .. reversal pattern being put in on the monthly plus a lot of October calls being bought up. That's why I think markets are going to correct over the next couple of months. But I'm still holding longs at the same time. Using VIX as a hedge.

I'm with vanguard and they're charging me $7 a trade unless I'd have $500k which would make it $2 a trade. I know their mutual funds are free as long as they're vanguards.

I'm long with MMM, ADP, SYY, BAC, NKE, MSFT, and SAH. Might get out the game with SAH but I'm holding the others.

Not sure if you got SAH off my play or not but it looks good if it finishes around these prices by end of month.

Would also recommend you look into covered call writing if you're not doing it already.

$7 is a good price. I pay $7.99 per trade at Etrade and that's only because I make 150+ trades per quarter. Otherwise it's $9.99.

I like buying vol at these levels. Cheap protection in case of sudden sell off or something

If you're looking for reading material is a great site with tons of info.

Need to open up a brokerage account first before you can start investing though. Here's a comparison of some of the more popular brokerages

Came across ACAD going over monthly charts. Has a nice setup here, looks like it's heading back to $30. But has a 21% short float which has been increasing.

Biotech with data on their Parkinson's drug due by end of year. Haven't seen much options activity on it but will be watching for some. Lots of OI in the Jan '15 call side though.

I have that and OPK on my list still waiting for a good entry point.

OPK
AEGR
ACAD

All should be up big by Jan

Phase 3 dates always spark my interest now
