Looking for a week to have as a II deposit to get better options in II. I know the hawaii, st johns, and atlantis would be great but are there other good buys for trading power. Again im new to this so im sorry if this is in the wrong place.

All of those resorts are way too expensive to use for II traders. They all have Staroptions on a resale - so you would generally buy them to use, or for Staroption traders - but they're actually too expensive to be cost effective Staroption traders, as well.

Sheraton Desert Oasis is generally considered to be the most cost effective II trader: Gold Plus (1-52 floating) 2 bdm. lock-off

*Each side is a 1 bdm. and can be deposited separately for 2 trades (not a 1 bdm. + studio) or deposited as a 2 bdm. unit
*Low maintenance fees
*The MF for the 2 bdm. is a lot less than the combined MF when you buy the 2 sides separately.
*You can usually buy a 2 bdm. on the resale market for less than $1,000, all in.

Sheraton Desert Oasis - 2011
EOY Lg. 1 Bdm. - $332.27
EOY 2 Bdm. L/O - $474.20
Sm. 1 Bdm. - $529.91
Lg. 1 Bdm. - $624.54
2 Bdm. L/O - $908.41
