Interactive is the ONLY platform to do so in Canada and if you are not using it you should be switching anyway. Nothing compares for professional pseudo-professional traders. Currency exchange, fund transfers, features, entry are not even comparable.
As for JCP yes I have decided to play with fire with the simple concept that this American Brand will never be allowed to fail. And they are financed for at least the next year with out worry.
No no, JCP will be back in the 20s just like what happened to BBY. There is no doubt. I am already skipping and have a long way to go. I assume you hang on to your winner for a few days and your losers for years hehe. Try the opposite. You will be a very wealthy man.
Same with the VXX short. I am in 75% of a position and I am already skipping there as well. Life is good.
I have many position. I am short APA, just sold my Apple the other day and my TSLA. Right now I am long JCP, short BBRY and have fun intraday shorting it every chance I get, short APA, Long 1% of a bank, long GOOG, short NFLX a bit, short FB again, short VXX and building,. I have more than $1000. ;)
