Getting Started

First things first.

Do you have a Trading Broker Account?

To be able to trade you will need a Trading Broker Account. You can skip this step right now, but eventually you will need a Broker account to be able to implement your trades. If you are setting up a broker account for the first time you will need a little bit of time to get it done, so you may want to skip this at this point, just keep in mind that eventually you will come back here.

Your trading broker acts as an intermediary, connecting you to the stock market. Your brokerage account is where the shares you own are held until you are ready to sell. A majority of ComhlaTech‘s members prefer Questrade or Interactive Brokers for opening their accounts.

Let's get some terminology out of the way.

Do you know what an ETF is?

What is an ETF?

An Exchange-Traded Fund, or ETF for short, is an investment fund that lets you buy a group of individual stocks or government and corporate bonds in one purchase. ETFs are essentially like an investment basket filled with stocks or bonds.

There are 4 main “indexes” of stocks in the United States – the S&P, the Nasdaq, the DOW and the Russell. A trader cannot buy and sell the indexes as they are actually measurement tools. ETFs are used to reflect the price movements of the indexes, so that traders can buy and sell them in the open market.

At this time, the Prophetick Market Forecast focuses on 2 main indexes. The S&P and the Nasdaq.

The S&P 500, known as “the S&P”, is a stock market index that measures the stock performance of 500 large public companies in the United States.

The NASDAQ Composite is an index that is heavily weighted towards companies in the technology sector. The Nasdaq-100, includes 100 of the largest non-financial companies in the Nasdaq Composite.

The most commonly used ETF’s that track the performance of the S&P are: SPY, SSO and SPXL.

The most commonly used ETF’s that track the performance of the Nasdaq are: QQQ, QLD and TQQQ.

Do you know how and why to use a Limit ON CLOSE Order?

Why use a Limit on Close Order?

Limit on Close orders mean that ComhlaTech members can place their trades when the market is closed, or at any time during the day. Whatever suits them.

A Limit on Close (LOC) order lets you buy or sell at a defined exact price set by you (or a better price if your broker can get it) at the moment the Market Closes.

It is an order type that can be setup at any time of day prior to when you want the order to execute or fill. That is, it can be setup from 4:01pm EST the day before up until 3:45pm EST on the day you want it to fill.

This short video explains what a Limit on close Order is and the basic steps of placing a Limit on close Order. It also explains the difference between a Limit on Close and Market on Close order, in case that's how you individual broker is setup.
