      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?

Question

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.

So who do you choose? Lot's of choices. Which services do you use and do you like them?

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).

    • Here are a few pictures of the little peanut aka TazMania.    I got waaay behind on introducing him to birds and with work and the weather it was a slow start but once I finally got him on birds he really took off. He has an incredible nose and he is close working which for me and my family a$$ is a benefit. I was worried about going away from Springer's but  I am not disappointed and love the cocker. 
    • Diced spam fried up then add the eggs and scramble up is a fish house morning favorite for us.
    • First batch done, hopefully these will pair well with a cold beverage and football! Skol!    Last weekends football fare, beef burnt ends, lasted about 15 min with my neighbors. I'm going to try it with pork shoulders this weekend. I'll grill up the chunks during pregame tomorrow. Skol!
    •     Yah, then wash it down with a High Life
    • That's a cute little carpet muncher. 
    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering.
