Anyone figure out if shares held in a ROTH IRA (post tax) can be DRS'd?
Crazy seeing it go from $220 --> $255 --> 218. Most important thing... still green.
One can only hope
With TDA, you need at least $25k in your account to make this a non-issue. If you have less than that, the only real solution is to not use up all your capital in a single trade.
Correct. The less liquid the stock, the bigger the spread/slip potential. The more liquid, the smaller it should be.
Like the other guy posted - supposed you've determined a resistance line at ~$100. The previous resistance was at $80, the stock shot through and then it hit $100 and came back down. You sold at $98. $80 is the new support. And in your mind it should come back down to $80 (where you'll buy again), before it tries to run up and break through $100. BUT if it breaks through $100, you're pretty sure it'll go to $120 after that.
So, you put a buy stop limit. The basic method would be a buy stop - in that case, let's say you put that price as $101 since you've determined that if it gets to $101, it's a solid breakthrough and the uptrend will continue. The buy stop is such that when the price hits $101, your order becomes a market order.
Buy stop limit, is the same except you are putting a specific limit to the slip. Because if it was just a buy stop, your order might close at $103. With a buy stop limit you can say "when the price hits $101, put a limit buy for $102, because although I do believe it's going to run up, I don't want to waste my money on $103 slip."
