Many sites. What kind of alerts are you looking for? Vols? Greeks? You can also customize most of the alerts depending on spreads you might be trading. This is possible even in simple option accounts with Level 4 approval.

It will be interesting to dig into their actual portfolio holdings. But I agree that these are probably the closest instruments on gold and silver price play.

Both these ETF's have huge loop holes that are well known in the pro circles. The very question that they are holding physical gold or silver is highly questionable considering the market cap of these ETF's. There is risk that they will not perform like the underlying at all.

The custodians of SLV is JPM who usually has a huge short position on Colmex silver and GLD is HSBC who has a huge short position on gold. Read this article for more info.

Are GLD and SLV Legitimate Investment Vehicles? -- Seeking Alpha

Again this goes to my point that trading commodities is not as straight forward as it seems even in plain and easy instruments.

I am not a chartist or day trader if that is what you want to know. I have worked in high frequency Stat-Arb trading which also does micro caps sometimes.

You should be able to look up option prices from most of the electronic brokers. I have used tdameritrade and optionsexpress.
Does optionexpress platform provide any special advantages related to option trading in terms of strategy analysis etc? I have etrade and I am not sure if i am missing anything

Plenty of sites.. to discuss this stuff. Lets keep this forum only for immigration related issues.
You can go to Online Coupons | Cash Back - FatWallet.com (Finance forum) or bogleheads forum to discuss specifics.

It is the cost. I think optionexpress charges 9.99 flat fee for any number of contracts. Most other well known brokers will charge some flat fee + per contract fee.
When I researched this is the cheapest I could find for individual options trading.

I agree. These ETFs are too risky. With so many pros in the game nothing is easy nowadays. As you had mentioned in one of your post, the market for individuals is as close to gambling as it gets.

If you cannot make trading your profession then Invest don't trade. Or trade options where you don't have to watch tick by tick.

Hey guys who are scolding us that this is not related to immigration- Common cut us some slack. Can we discuss just immigration 365 days when we are the only ones doing it and policy makers dont care about us? We will go nuts doing it. What is the harm if we all discuss other stuff. Maybe there could be a seperate thread or something for discussing non immigration stuff. As a community we should be able to discuss and share other stuff than just our frustrations.

Atleast you are taking a break from immigration.
Try onlinetradingacademy, offcourse they are expensive but heard its worth if you wanna be trader but do DD before making a decision.
I do swing trade and my portfolio consists only biomedical stocks which are around couple of bucks(can't efford more than that).

smisachu,

Where can one learn about high frequency trading ? Can you suggest books that mathematically model various instruments price movements such as stocks, options and futures ?

Thanks in Advance!
