aquarian1,

Who is your broker? Your commission seem awful high.

I guess with your style of trading it's not as big of a deal as it would be if you were an active daytrader. But when IB charges 50 cents per 100 share, your $9.99 commissions really stand out.


Hi Ross,

The amount is rather arbitrary, though it is the actual commission rate at one place I know of. I choose a rather high(=conservative) commission so that I wouldn't get into a commission discussion "well sure it works at $0.99 a trade but try this at $xx per trade and ...".

The key of the thread is a buying the breakout strategy and if it is good then commissions shouldn't break it.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

I was just making the observation that generally people tend to sell their strongest performer, because of the $$ signs, and keep their weakest performers because of attachment to a bad trade, not wanting to take a loss, or greed wanting more profit.

Opposite is what works in reality, in my experience.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I've sold 1/2 of PETM to raise cash.

Then I bought about $5,000 each of the ones we didn't have - same rule as before at the opening price of the day following the barchart report. So GOOG was Wed evening 28 Dec and I bought it at open on Thurs morning of the 29 Dec, etc.

(GOOG was $641.49 so I could only by 8 shares - ah the insanity of it all!!)

I've got $4,500 of cash left and BIP was this evening report so I'll buy it at open tomorrow.

Whatever's at a high profit tomorrow evening I'll sell 1/2 at the closing price and then buy about $5,000 of the next day report.

Here's the trades to bring us up-to-date:
