Alternatively, you can enter the new contract symbol in the quick search box (top right corner).

You should not fund day-trading activities with retirement savings, student loans, second mortgages, emergency funds, funds set aside for purposes such as education or home ownership, or funds required to meet your living expenses. 

If you engage in day trading activities, set a budget and do not spend beyond your set budget.
