I didn't see any other way of posting in this forum other than posting a poll. Hopefully it's not a problem...

I am a hard-working 25 year old entrepreneur in the tech industry and have been saving my entire life. I'm new to trading and anything other than keeping my money in the bank. The fun and new learning opportunities inherent to the stock market have finally drawn me in. I found this forum via ihub and have been pleased by the welcoming attitudes and helpful experiences I have encountered here in my short time lurking. I'm not sure how I earn/pay for the privilege to reply to forum posts. If anyone knows how, please respond (:

Thank you starting this forum and to all those that maintain it. I'm looking forward to working with and learning from all of you.

Age is important only if you're cheese or wine.

Welcome aboard Grin

I don't know if I understood it correctly, but, you can reply to forum posts, it is just write what you want to say, and, click the Post button, you don't need to pay anything for that. Sorry if it was not this that you wanted to say/ask.

Vegas, free members can't open new topics since a couple of years, due to problems with spam we had, only reply to topics.

Thank you all for the warm welcome (:

Also, I appreciate the clarification about posting topics. That makes a lot of sense.

I've been trying to do research on what free tools traders use for screening stocks and analyzing charts (one that includes the ADX indicator is hard to find) but have come up empty-handed. I'd love some suggestions, whether free or not. Also, I'd like to find a better trading platform than my current pick (optionshouse) that has a better fee/commision schedule for trading penny stocks and better analysis tools. Any suggestions?

We all utilize stockcharts.com.  Basically, with all the default settings.
I'd bookmark this,then you can just change the ticker symbol:  http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=CYCC&p=D&b=5&g=0&id=p38472126082

For screening stocks, personally I use stockfetcher.com.  The free version is limited to just 5 results, so one little trick is to add criteria to limit them down, and slide the criteria to grab more results as needed.  For example,  'And Price between .50 and .75', then after you get those results, slide it to 'And Price Between .25 and .50'.

As an engineer, if you are familiar with database queries, I think you'd really like stockfetcher, it's almost like writing sql style queries against stock indicators.

Great suggestions! Those are both great websites and I've bookmarked them. Is it worth the cost to pay for stockcharts to see more detailed charts, or is the free service good enough?

I'm really liking stockfetcher as I am familiar and comfortable with SQL queries. That's definitely going to be a great resource.

I can see that it's risky to trade pennies, but that's the market I'm looking to play in. Currently I'm at optionshouse and the commission structure of .005/share on OTC trades takes a large chunk out of profits (plus their screening and other tools are really lacking). What trade platforms do you guys suggest/use to trade pennies?

This is my chart template, I use it since 15 years without any changes, I strongly advise to bookmark it and only change the ticker, if you want to see the weekly, just change to weekly and click the Update button.

http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=MINE&p=D&b=5&g=0&id=p24923847489

BTW, I never used the paid version of stockcharts.com, you can click the flash or java button below every chart, and, a new window will open, where you can draw lines. It is enough to analize very well any chart, I picked a 4300% run with it(ATRN), so it works.

The best broker to trade penny stocks is without a doubt Etrade, $9.99 flat rate, independently of the number of shares you buy, and, no problemns with stocks on the chill list.
