      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Online stock trading?

Recommended Posts

Is this the correct place for this?

Have any of you done it?

What's the cost?

Time frame to trade?(does it take 10 day's or hours)

Thinking of expanding my portfolio and looking for opinions on the different online companies.

Not sure if they can be named here.

Looking to start, any advice would be appreciated.

Norm

Leave it alone. I've been in or around the industry for 20 years, but never a broker. They get paid for a reason. The online trading fad is fading these days. I guess the D.I.Y. folks are almost out of money now.....

Trust your broker, and don't be eyeballin' your portfolio all the times. In good times or in bad....

Online trading is easy, once you set up an account, you may enter a trading order and it takes less than 10 sec to complete the market order trade. It costs from zero to $20 per trade.

You may do online trading with online brokers (Interactive Broker, TDAmeritrade, Scottrade, Etrade ...), Banks (WellsFargo, Bank of America, CitiBank ...) or mutual fund companys (Fidelity, Charles Schwab ...).

I've been looking to do that too, like my uncle says, its the same as gambling, instead of dropping $200 at the casino, take it and buy penny stocks, never know when you hit the next google or yahoo or whatever, plus he said if you do get a good loss, you can claim it on taxes! Yet, I still haven't taken the time to do it either

If you buy stocks responsibly, it's never a gamble or a fad. You will own a piece of the company. Market orders can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours to complete, depends on the stock availability. The advantage to online trading is cost savings.

I have done it through TDameritrade. Costs 9.95 or maybe 10.95 per trade. A trade takes less than a minute to place order and get executed unless you ask for something special, like a limit order.

There is no fee except if you execute a transaction.

You can do options and margin and all that stuff if you want to. I stay far away from all that.

You can buy stocks and ETF mutual fund shares. I think they pay you to open an account but I don't recall any details.

I am using TDAmeritrade for its technical analysis tools. I am using WellsTrade (WellsFargo) to trade stocks (cost nothing for first 100 trades, and 5.95 thereafter). I am using IB (Interactive Brokers) for option trading (cost a few cents per contract).

    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
