I use Scottrade as a broker, which only allows a stop that is $.75 below the bid (is this a common practice?). My question is this -
Is there any way to configure a sell limit order to close this gap?
When trading lower price stocks, 3/4 will annihilate you!

Any help is appreciated,

Get out of Scottrade QUICK J & K! 3/4 will kill you in STT'ing! E*Trade limits it to 1/8 and I thought THAT was too close sometimes. LOL I haven't run into a limit with RJT but that big a range can really hurt. Especially if your stock is up 3/4 from your buyin and you can only put in a trailing stop that would get you out at even.

PS - Did anyone notice my big yellow star (well actually it is little)
Had it for 4 days now! It only took 2 1/2 years to get it. At
rate I will have my BIG yellow star in about . . . Carry the
7 . . . >3.1417 . . . the moon will be in venus in 2371 . . .
Oh Well, suffice it to say it will be a while.

Congrats on the gold star!! As for the math, as I said in an earlier post I failed algebra and what you put up there looks suspiciously like that brand of math so I'll steer clear! LOL
