This is a live trade. We are going to pick up 100 shares of SVM at $12.25 with a stop at $11.20. I really want for the metal silver as measured by the SLV to break $31 a share before jumping into the small miners, but I don't want this one to get away. The stop restricts out loss to $100.
1.By a full position we mean 100 shares of a stock: So,, a 1/4 position is 25 shares if you have 100 shares of a stock or it's 100 shares if you hold 400 shares of the stock.
2.The Plunger Protection Team (PPT): This refers to the cabal consisting of among others secretary of the Treasury, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, the chairman of the SEC and the chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Officially known as The Working Group on Financial Markets, it was created by Ronald Reagan to prevent a repeat of the Wall Street meltdown of October 1987. But on Wall Street no good thing goes uncorrupted.
