  16. Luke, what are your thoughts on XYZ stock? I am sorry, but I can’t comment on whether you should buy or sell a stock as I am not a registered investment advisor. I am simply a guy who is actively trading his own account and sharing ideas with the community. Any comments I make regarding a stock are my own personal thoughts on it and how I would trade the stock. If I am following it, then I make announcements as to when I buy and sell it. I will never tell any member what they should do with their portfolio — go pay an overpriced advisor for that!
  17. Should I announce my scalp trades on swing trade alerts and gap plays? NO. Please do not announce scalp trades on swing trade alerts and gap plays in chat.
