All the forums on futures.io (formerly BMT) are real-time. As for trading Canadian exchange stocks, there are no doubt some here that do, but more that trade NASDAQ and NYSE.

You are free to post about Canadian traded stocks so long as they are not penny stocks.

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'm a Canuck and mainly have my long term trades on the TSX but do most of my short term trades on US exchanges.
US markets are more liquid, have more choices and have more information easily accessable than Canadian markets. Depending on what size you trade commissions are less expensive.

Hi Mike

I am Canadian though I have traded American stocks from time to time.

I do like to trade pennies but not scam sub-pennies of course.

Most define a penny stock as under $5 but Canadian exchanges are a bit different than American ones in the Oil and Gas sector as well as the Mining sector. The TSX and TSE Venture exchanges have the highest listings of these sectors in the world

http://www.tmx.com/en/pdf/Mining_Sector_Sheet.pdf

http://www.tmx.com/en/pdf/OilGas_Sector_Profile.pdf

Unlike American mining and energy listings that seem to rocket to the moon on little or no earnings, Canadian start-up often start in the neighbourhood of $0.50 - $1.00 and then climb slowly over the months/years as their production and revenues increase. There are many viable mines and oil junior companies in the $1 to $5 range.

BTW...you do know that a Canadian mining and O&G company must list American exchange to exposure to the American market. One way to spot a potential scam company in this group is to find a Canadian O&G or mining company that lists in the USA and not Canada.

a good example of that was Oilsands Quest Inc [OBQI]

Stock Market Quotes | Stock Market Charts and Graphs

this company has moose pasture in Northern Saskatchewan and touted itself to America as being part of the Alberta Oilsands...American investors bought the stock hook line and sinker in 2006-2008 but finally they realized the scam......this is a one of my "sniff tests" for an american listing. Anmerican stock does not have to list in Canada because we have unfettered access to American stocks through our brokers here but the reverse is not true for Canadian stocks.

The upshot of this post is ....when you refer to "penny stocks" is it less than $1 or less than $5...I hope it is less than $1 because a gold company like B2Gold could not be discussed

Stock Market Quotes | Company Financials, Financial Information

this is a gold mine that has a solid net revenue quarter after quarter....despite the fall in the price of its commodity (gold) and with the rise of the gold price (fingers crossed :> ) this stock will rise too and could be a takeover target in future.

I am primarily a chartist but I am learning fundamentals as well as basic knowledge of fundamentals helps weed out the Good from the bad and butt ugly.

My definition of a penny stock is one under $1....but if that is too low I will restrict my discussions to $5+ thought many good opportunities for Canadian stocks would be missed.

I have just arrived at your site and must say that being "impressed" is an understatement for me.

What are you looking at right now? I'm currently watching trading TC on the US side.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

I am not sure if you are asking me this question or someone else.

Right now I am looking a precious metals. Mostly gold as it seems to be breaking through resistances though very slowly and currently this chart looks like Gold is ready to break out to me.

$GOLD - SharpCharts Workbench - StockCharts.com

I don't invest in physical gold or funds that "claim" to back their offerings with real gold...What I like is gold mining companies (not explorers)

My style is long swing and long term investing. I do some basic fundamentals to weed out bad guys then TA to make decisions to buy/sell.

As with any commodity based company it is important to monitor their commodity since their revenues are directly related to the commodity's value.

I am in the process of setting up a spreadsheet to record transactions and such so I can open a Trading journal. I wish Big Mike would clarify what is the upper limit of a penny stock on this site. Typically of course it is $5 but in Canada many many start up mines that have real production and revenue (including profits) are in the $1 - $5 range and worth looking at.

Perhaps he will answer my question in the next while as I have a few mines to consider and I want to show how I evaluate the choices in a journal...this would be the first purchase and I would diversify into others

I'm sure a well thought out journal about trading even penny stocks is acceptable. There is money to be made trading the pennies using TA and price action.

Yeah I have some good ideas about picking junior mines and oil companies using some fundamentals first then TA to time purchases...I avoid explorers for both like the plague as they are selling nothing but dreams unless they really have something and sometimes that is hard to tell.

I am new here so I don't want to put a foot wrong as I like this site... I wish Big Mike would comment on that post I made....but I think you might agree Junior O&G and mines on Canadian exchanges in the $1-$5 range are better than most $1 - $5 of their counterparts on American exchanges...(when you get the good ones anyway.)...and yes I have a method for finding them

So if I understand what I've heard elsewhere, it's legal for Canadian residents to trade stocks on US exchanges. But it's illegal for US residents to trade stocks on Canadian exchanges?
