    Any part-time Day Traders here taking advantage of the Covid-19 volatility?



    Since I am in quarantine, I have had the time to day trade the market. I am not a professional in any way, but I have manage to hit 25% profit this week!

    Anyone else day trading? Maybe we can share data on what stocks you are watching, what gappers you find, and what you feel is about to break out.

    Just to be transparent... I did give up a a little bit of profit today but still finishing up 23% for the week. With all that's going on it feels good to win on this front and be looking forward to see what the market does on Monday.

    C'mon, I know some of you all are trading! If we share info we can trade even better...

    On this post here, I felt really good about Paypal, and said I was going to buy..... april 13th I bought 50 shares at $106, today its $177.. plus I have sold it and bought it a few times during this same time period to take profits on gaps up, then repurchasing at the bottom of a correction..

    Share some of your winners...!!!

    Currently, I am feeling BlackBerry Ltd NYSE: BB, is ripe for a buyout! It's currently at $4.85... I am purchasing 5k shares.. looking at the charts there is not a huge downside potential but , but a very big upside.. I will put my stops in place to prevent any huge losses on my part... I am willing to hold it for a few months, but I will be watching it for gapping opportunities to sell, then repurchasing at the bottom of the corrections.. Let's Go ride the wave!

    Please, help me see myself.

    I would like to follow your line of thought... I linked the post where I talked about buying PayPal a couple of months ago... How am I embarrassing myself? It kind of sounds like you are hating just a little bit.

    In case you missed the link to the post.

    Where is the spin?

    I also prefaced this thread with the fact that the trading stuff I do is only like a hobby, and due to the shutdown I have time to play with my hobby...

    Again where is the spin?

    Regarding if I did (or did not) trip over some info in 2009 that is beneficial to me or someone else what does that even matter?

    That comment makes you sound a little bitter and sound like you are hating.

    As I sit and think about your comment, what just came to mind was how the companies that received the huge bailouts in 2008, turned around and did stock buy backs with the bail out money! You remember that.... That was crazy....

    Lol. Most of what you said flew over my head. I only have played around with the basic of day trading, but I am intrigued to learn more and play around with options as well as forex... I just might trip over some info in 2020 that I can learn, then use!

    haha, all good ..definitely learn now that everyone seems to have time and picking up new hobbies...just an fyi if you use robinhood for stocks its ok since its free and cool app whatever but if you plan on getting into advanced stuff like options,forex, etc try a more robust platform like think or swim or fidelity....robinhood can also support options but its not as good as the others imo, and just don't end up like that young trader on robinhood

    I actually use the TD Ameritrade think or Swim platform. They have tons of education... I remember when I 1st learned about stop-limit orders, thats been huge for me and have saved me from getting myself into to much trouble.

    Do you do any day trading, or swing trading yourself?
