1 - Because it usually falls on the next day after going up that much in the previous one(+4.07%)
2 - My Stop would be 28.99 (+1.5 %)
3 - the position aquired is 30% of the account cash
4 - To Make minimum of 100 bucks
5 - If it hits the stop, if I need the whole cash account to do anything else
6 - After 2 days if it doens't hit 100 bucks, I would close it as long as I didn't get loss

thanks Mike

Based on your reply, I would say you have a great deal to learn. "It usually falls" is most likely completely false. Show me 5 years of evidence to back up your claim. You have done the research, yes? You should have, because you need to research it in order to have confidence in it.

It is unclear to me how much risk you are taking in terms of percentage of your account size. If you are saying a full stop represents 1.5% loss on your account, then that is acceptable.

Your reasons to enter the trade, and reasons to exit the trade, don't make any sense in terms of market context and price action.

There are something like 100 webinars in our webinar section. Most of them are roughly 2 hours long. Start watching them.

Also read this thread front-to-back, it may take a while:

I' m not a facebook user nor will I ever will be.

The reason why I have been bullish on the stock is because everyone hates it, or says its overvalued or blah blah blah

I am just watching the weekly chart

I am long term bullish with a stop loss @$18.50

Bespoke Investment Group - Think BIG - Facebook Bigger Than*Disney


Quoting 
With a gain of more than 10% after-hours, shares of Facebook (FB) are currently trading at record highs and back near their all-time highs from earlier this month. With this evening's gain in the stock, FB is moving back up the ranks of the most valuable companies in the world. With a market cap of over $130 billion, if the company was part of the S&P 500, it would currently rank as the 25th largest company in the index. It is pretty amazing to think that a company that didn't even exist ten years ago is now one of the largest in the world.

Back in 2007, Microsoft (MSFT) was practically laughed at for buying a 1.6% stake in FB for $240 million -- valuing the company at $15 billion. Today, Facebook is bigger than Disney. Look who's laughing now.

FB are an interesting one, they seem to be spending a lot on growing their business through acquisitions. A really good one for them is the announcement of the intention to purchase Oculus VR this week, I can see this being seen as a massively cheap buy for them in 5yrs time when this area becomes mainstream. Although I say that with hesitancy as it is $2B which isn't a small number (but i mean relatively).

Thanks,

Sand.
