These are stocks from dot com bubble. (incubators, search engines blah blah)

I know CMGI fell apart and DCLK went private.

GO2NET believe is 1 800 US search or something. and INSP/info space is the only one still trading.

Was there excite which disney bought?

Any other ones that you know and follow?

^ do a lot of paper trades and follow the market everyday, then you get the hang of it and you can catch the next cycle.. This last year has been pretty good.

position trade/swing trade works the best and need to allocate a small chunk on a promising sub $5 bio and wait some years for it to explode or get taken over.

I remember a guy claiming to have made close to a milion but had gotten a tummy ache no doctor could cure.. LOL. In my experience being able not to hit the panic button AKA sell was the most important one. I think if I have made reverse decision of what I did when I was somehow clueless would have been better off;

Sometimes a stock coils and really needs patience especially if market is hot and it's not responding. Not getting into low float trades, staying away from AMEX and even NYSE stocks is other key parts for a trader.

Selling options on expiry day or close to it (mostly the morning of expiration) is also another trick and it goes worthless and you keep the premium they pay.

Watching for blocks of trades pass thru (normally a L3 software too to monitor is required) normally indicates they will run a stock as it got handed to another firm and they will profit from it.

start trading market ultra short or long ETFs and see if you do OK guessing (per education) the trend of market short term.

This crypto mania is like dot com era, you can do well if you know the game.
