I answered a question in the General Discussion area but the title is NEW FORUM POST so... I thought these should be put here with a HEADING.

SF, please give us the ability to edit the heading OR... make it so we have to type something in the heading BEFORE we can post a message.

A $2 movement on a $300 stock is a lot less meaningful than a $2 movement on a $50 stock. Instead of "Mover" being defined as a high-low difference of $2, could it be defined some way as a % of the close price? Thank you.

A $2 move is a $2 move.

You still make the same amount.

Buy/sell 100 shares and gross $200.00.

Of course, the percent return is different but the money is the same!!

Thank you for bringing this up. It is very important and the sooner one conquers this, the faster they'll become profitable.

I'll buy 1,000 shares of a $5 stock or a $300 stock, and I'll dump for a dime and gross $100. My eye is on the $ not on the %.

Feel free to change the filters I post to fit your needs.

I posted a percent move filter ealier this week.

"I'll buy 1,000 shares of a $5 stock or a $300 stock, and I'll dump for a dime and gross $100. My eye is on the $ not on the %. "

yea, but there's a lot of difference in having to put down $5,000 to make $100, than to put down $300,000 to make the same !!!
Percentages matter more in my mind.

Maybe you have that amount to trade.....lucky you.

"Maybe you have that amount to trade.....lucky you."

To daytrade you need a minimum of $25k.

At 4:1 margin, that gives you $100k of buying power.
