HSX Forums: Playing & Trading Strategy Board






Here, the amount that a stock goes up (or down) does scale with price, but the price tiers at which the scaling occurs is unknown by me.

Posted by: Paul2k on May 24, 16:40 in response to jwammo's post not sure how it works here, IRL, the bid and ask...

Buying 100k of a 2 dollar stock may only move it a penny or two, while buying 100k of a 10 or 20 dollar stock may move it 8-10 cents. And buying a stock worth 200 dollars may move it 20-40 cents per 100k.

And, as I said in my previous post, unscientific experience on my part shows that buying and then selling (or usually, covering, then reshorting in order to free up money) either nets out to no change, or a slight positive uptick of 1-5 cents. So if anything, there seems to be a slight bump given to trades that would cause a positive movement (buy/cover) versus trades that would cause negative movement (sell/short)

Nice work :-) Very nice. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 24, 13:41

hey thanks! {nm}   jwammo on May 24, 13:45

Interesting. Are you getting a feed from HSX for the prices, or grabbing it yourself? Also, a note about your tip:   Paul2k on May 24, 14:06

shhh, its super-secret. To be honest, I wrote the tips section up real quick so I had enough for the ads.   jwammo on May 24, 15:04

not sure how it works here, IRL, the bid and ask differences get larger with the stock price, so price erosion is a factor. {nm}   jwammo on May 24, 16:08

interesting. Shorting here is also different than IRL, which is why it makes sense to cover/re-short {nm}   jwammo on May 24, 16:45

If anyone is interested in writing a tip or two for the tips page, I would gladly put it up : ) {nm}   jwammo on May 24, 15:05

Times when (%change)/(time) is the maximum are 1) at reset, 2) at time of news posting, and 3) the day(s) before/after adjust {nm}   PRodNano on May 24, 16:23

Cool site, btw {nm}   PRodNano on May 24, 16:24

Hey thanks, I've written down your tip. When I get a page full, I'll update the site, and include your handle. {nm}   jwammo on May 24, 16:26

thx!...small typo...on the Favorites page, you used the Flash ticker symbol for Highlander (but the link is correct) :) {nm}   tealfan on May 24, 22:38

fixed, thanks! {nm}   jwammo on May 25, 05:32

A possible "suggestion" for you. Perhaps make your colums 'sortable'...like HSX..so   Flash on May 25, 08:34

yeah, its on the list. {nm}   jwammo on May 25, 09:13

updating went down for a bit. Its back up, but will need some time before hour changes show up. {nm}   jwammo on May 25, 09:24

I am only seening tings on Home, Tips and Favorites...no stocks. {nm}   Buy StarBond Fund 18 on May 25, 11:26

what browser are you using? currently it doesn't work with IE 8 or lower, just IE 9, Chrome, FF, etc. {nm}   jwammo on May 25, 11:27

fixed for IE 8, try it now! {nm}   jwammo on May 25, 11:46

Any chance of you doing the same for Starbonds please?   Rednax on Jun 14, 07:04
