Just want to say thanks for explaining the technicals behind your "BUY". The earnings, sector, resistance and your goals help put it all into perspective faster than just a BUY notice. Thanks

Sykes, thank you for the explanation. I get the in and out method, cutting your losses; but I'm having some difficulty with the verbiage/jargon. Do you have a video you can guide me to off the top of your head that provides the basics. Sorry man, I am a newbie starting at 1,500. Thanks! Adam Stricker

Good lesson on VTNR, getting out when it doesn't do what you expect. Thanks. I jumped in and then jumped out, taking a small loss, but worth the lesson. VTNR down much bigger already this morning.

$1,830 profit VTNR Long Stock

Entry comments: Speculative chart breakout play, up on strong volume, new 52-week high, needs to break above 8.15ish for bigtime breakout ideally to the mid 8s as it likes to gap up 30-40 cents/share, risk of double top though so be careful

Exit comments: Not closing strong at all, basically flat trade, not risking a perfect double top like MOBI a few weeks ago...potential rebuy ONLY when it breaks above 8.10-8.15 resistance, not when it fails to break out and comes down minute by minute like this

Bought @ 8.04 just before close and also just before the sell off profit-takers. Now unhappily holding overnight. Do you think I should sell @ the open or see if it comes back up tomorrow?

I know you don't SHORT earnings winners, but do you consider shorting UPGRADES?

Great info, especially in video 2- very easy to get caught up in pulling the trigger on b/o or b/d trades without pre-planning or having your risk/reward mapped out. Thanks Tim.

@LunatC what is their price per trade. I may need to look at getting away from Etrade Pro. I like their platform but not finding what I need! Any ideas-Adam
