I know most financial sites provide news, but can anyone recommend a site which specializes in, or, is particularily good, and has an edge in providing late breaking news.
Thanks


General Discussion · Day Trading Question

Does anyone know the answer to the following:
I own 1,000 shares of a particular company. On a given day, I buy 500 additional shares. Later the SAME day, I sell 500 shares. Is this regarded as a day trade considering I already owned 1,000 shares. Could the 500 sold be from this 1,000 lot?
Thanks

rrrbbbggguo,

Thanks for the tips.
But I would add, in addition to checking the general market trend, it's also good to check the industry & sector trend. Market maybe down but the industry/sector of the stock may be up which would influence how you play it.

General Discussion · Day Trading Rules

Thanks for the replies, but I understand the general rules of day trading. Four trades in a rolling five day period. My question was on the segments of a trade. Again, the quoation reads:

"Each executed segment of a sweep order qualifies as a trade for purposes of day trading rules. For example, if your buy market or limit sweep order gets executed in 4 segments, that order actually counts as 4 trades, and will subject you to "pattern day trader" status if you subsequentely sell some or all of the shares the same day."

As I understand it, if you buy 1,000 shares of a stock, and it's executed in four segments, for example, 250 shares each, you have now reached your limit and cannot sell that day without breaking the rules.
Anybody know if this is correct?
Thanks again.

rrrbbbggguo,

Interesting take on trading. Is this true? If so, please give some details. How long have you been doing it for? How successful is it and do you also do "normal" trading or just shorting (stocks you think will go up) only.

I'd appreciate if someone could clarify the situation regarding day trading. Specifically, what is "a trade". I've read different definitions. My understanding is the purchase of a stock was one trade, and the sale was one trade. But I copied the item in quotes below from a website which suggests the partial purchase or sale equals a trade.
Thanks in advance.

RumpledOne,

Good explaination of the filter.
It would be a great help to all of us non-progrmming types if you could do this for all the other ones you publish.
Thanks.

Koronbock,

I think his question is:
if the filter returns more than one stock, is $10,000 divided between the number of stocks, (2 stocks, $5,000 each) or, is $10,000 worth of each stock bought (2 stocks, $10,000 each).
My question is, what is the purpose of the chart?
While I think it's great people are willing to write programs to analyse filters, this doesn't make sense to me.
I ran two filters through it.
1. Win/Loss: 52/43. ROI: 222.6%. Trades: 137
From 1/3/05 to 8/5/05. Beginning balance: $20,000 Ending balance: $520,000
2. Win/Loss: 55/43. ROI: 199.35%. Trades: 52
From 1/3/05 to 8/5/05. Beginning balance: $9,500 Ending balance: $35,000
What is the practical application of the chart?
