Sorry I asked for help as a new trader. Just to clarify I am not the things I have been called this morning for asking for help. I am a 26 year old US Veteran, who now has a career, a family, and a 401k I am trying to grow. I was looking for veteran traders to help a yound man establish himself and grow some financially. I was trying to understand the things I was reading and came across while doing my own research. Again my appologies. TMAN, CRAIGAKESS, and others, thanks for your actual help and patience with me.
jlong, you don't anyone on this board anything; certainly not an apology or a copy of your DD 214. Good for you for tending to your financial future at an early age. However you came across INO, I believe you have made a great LONG term investment. This board is full of "interesting" characters and if you come here enough, you will learn which contributors are worthy of your time. I am a lurker on this board but have learned a great deal. While there are several knowledgeable posters, I would check out the recent posts of Kyle.Ramer and posgost67. See who makes substantial contributions under their posts and start following these posters as well. I personally owe individuals like these much gratitude. Check out the IHUB message board as well. Not as much "noise" there.
Good luck and thanks for your service.

Thanks all. I am at work took me a while to reply. I am a Vet. USN 2004-2009. Thanks to all you as well. I see lots of NAVY in here. I appreciate the responses and support. I will probably be calling on some of you to help me decide about things in the future. Thanks!!!
Here is what I think J. Don't get caught up checking the ticker every hour of the day. If you had done your research and believe in the company, let the PPS (price per share) go where it may. I have committed my money and will profit at some future point or not. Enjoy your career and family.
Hi jlong, I'm sorry that happened to you. I had the same thing happen to me the first time I posted here not too long ago. Some people are so sure of themselves and they just love to see their words in print. Thanks for your service. Myself a Navy vet 83-88, Med Cruise 86-87.
If you're an honest poster, then there's no need for you to apologize. I apologize to you for my freshman joke. Yes, I was once in your shoes and I know where you're coming from. Not everyone is a basher or soft basher and I jumped the gun this time. That said, good luck with your shares of Ino. If you hold, you won't regret it. On this down day, I'm still up over 200%. You will be too, someday. As for trading Ino, that's not my style, but I'm sure others can aid you.
You said you bought this stock 2 months ago. That would be around July 29th. The stock price was $1.45 on that day. What are you not happy about? In any case if you bought at the hype high price, I feel for you. But listen jlong. Don't worry about this stock. Stay in it long term and you'll be OK. The daily swings will drive you crazy. Many times it makes no sense. Experts have told me that the market for biotechs is sometimes even random. It's hard to outsmart the daily moves. Also there are some funny things going on with this stock that even the experts here have difficulty pinpointing the reasons for its movement. I will honestly tell you though that there is no stock as exciting as this with as great an upside. This is a far cry from my other stock which I hold a huge position in that I have lost over 60% in a short time. Another Biotech called NVIV. Go check that out. Study it and see what risks are involved in Biotech. The reason this stock is not taking off is because it lacks clinical trials. However I believe as many here probably do that the tests that they have done show earth shattering significance. Not only that Dr. Kim has delivered on his promises unlike Frank Reynolds from NVIV. INO has backing from the Dept of Defense, Bill Gates, and now Roche, Kim has ties with Merck. 1 year from now, you will be very happy you bought this stock 2 months ago. Good Luck to you and I suggest you hold long term. BTW what is your cost basis? Your entry price?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Well, ya can trade INO if you have a defib unit handy! It's like trading INTEL of the old days. I did one in and out for 80K shares and made $11,000 in 10 minutes, then I realized I'd just turned potential long-term gains tax shares into short-term gains tax - plus my heart had a few moment of tachyarrhythmia.
