  1. I realize this is paper money but after you made your initial limit order for AAPL and you showed how you can change the order by simply dragging the visual order from the charts menu, were you then charged the commission price again ? Like, each time you were to drag the order is it technically another order that is charged ? THANKS

  2. Once you place a order it says "working" but nothing ever happens? i was trying to use thinkorswim yesterday and I was just confused. Maybe you can make a video of the order actually going through? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

  3. How long does it take for a stock to buy? When it says being filled, I thought you could just buy one, be approved then sell for profit so does it take a day or 2 to buy or just a couple of minutes ?

  4. when i wanna short an item, do i sell it at 10 and then once it hits something lower just re buy the same amount (10) ? does the amount you just bought automatically take place for the 10 that you shorted earlier? hard to tell if i actually shorted it

  5. Hello good basic explenation!
    I was wondering how to sell that same stock if I just bought it like you just showed, or if I could set a buy limit and stop(take profit) at the same time?
    So for example on the chart you see 2 prices to slide or change(edit), one buy(green) and one sell(red).
    And if I change the order to stop in the order entry window what are the STD, BID, and Mark options?
    Could you be so kind to make a video on the subject, I know there is a description in the order rules window but you explained it very good in this video. I think you could help allot of people with such a video.
    Thank you

  6. Excuse me sir but PLEASE SLOW DOWN WHEN EXPLAINING?? IT'S VERY ANNOYING WHEN A LOT OF YOU SCOLARS SPEAK WAY TOO FAST…DO YOU KNOW THAT IT'S VERY HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR SAYING OR REFERRING TO ESPECIALLY WITH DOING OR NAVIGATING STOCK TRADING ON THESE PLATFORMS WHICH CAN BE CONFUSING? SLOW DOWN!! PLEEEASE???

  7. Is there a low commission brokerage you would recommend for an active trader? ToS is ok except for the time it takes to place and order, and then the wait for it to actually fill.

  8. Hey can anyone here tell me how large I need to make any given transaction
    (be it Penny Stocks or otherwise) in order to make a reasonable margin with the
    $9.99 commission fee by ToS. I assume that you are charged this fee each time you
    buy and sell, so wouldn't that mean that I need to make my gains exceed
    $20 to even get into the green for any given transaction?
