Ty I dont know who you are using for your online trading account but with eTrade and Ameritrade I only pay $19.99 plus a $3 order handling fee per trade...thus I can get in and trade around 50000-100000 shares for $46 dollars buy/sell the rest is all profit. I usually play just 33% gains on all my stocks. I buy in and immediately place an order to sell at +33% the price I bought at then forget about it. I only hold certain ones for higher % gains if I know they are going larger. Most times its fire and forget.
