A lot of people ask me: What is a stock float and why does it matter?

Before you can understand stock floats you have to understand the concept of outstanding shares — the total number of shares, including both restricted and unrestricted stocks.

Unrestricted, “floating” stock is the number of shares available for trading. Restricted shares aren’t part of the public float, because they’re subject to — you guessed it — certain restrictions.

There are also two types of stock floats: low floats and big floats.

A low-float stock trades millions of shares a day. A big-float stock trades billions of shares in a day.

These patterns can be tricky. You need to pay attention to these stocks to take advantage of them.

Some can have lots of volatility and move quickly. Make sure you’re prepared! Check out this video to get on the right track.

Do you trade low float or big float stocks? Which do you prefer? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Hey Tim, you have a picture on your website of a balcony overlooking a bay with boats in the water & on the balcony is your laptop & looks like a plate with chicken &eggs.. could you say where that picture is taken? The city & hotel? Thats the homescreen picture of my phone & I see it every day.. I hold it as motivation & a goal to reach, it would help if I can directly spot where I want to reach. Thanks Tim!

Hey.. Tim! Stephen Johnson is quitting trading? I don't know what's going on but last video that he uploaded, he sure sounded like that. Can you help him out? I know he does study a lot of your materials and is proud of being student of yours… but he is not going anywhere..
