DEAD ON: Huddie: For me, the day to be long was overnight Friday , betting on increased hysteria over the weekend and coming into today, specifically on low share count, break out chart $APT I think most of the moves are now, over-done, and have little merit being up here at these levels with loose ties to the news. Tough to cherry pick a bottom w/ such a situation imo

Breaking rules is a slippery slope

Breaking rules IS a slippery slope. I appreciate you sharing, because sometimes I think I'm the only one who forgets the rules.

($1,840) loss PIXY Long Stock

Entry comments: I dip bought this recent earnings winner selling off on low volume/the overall market, now more than 50% off its recent highs, has lots of support in the 10.80s so that's my risk if I'm wrong but I think this can bounce 40-80 cents/share, I'd go bigger if volume weren't so light,t hat's the only problem here

Exit comments: So many mistakes on this one it's crazy, meant to only send to my longer term newsletter (hence the lower volume and poor pattern for short-term trading), meant to only get 2k, but ended up getting 4k shares, then the bid/support and I've been trying to get out ever since, what a humbling experience after my best trade of the year...gotta stay humble, will do video lesson this weekend on all trades today, the highs AND the lows

Thank you, so you got in after the dip about 10:46 and got out around 2:07 after (I'll call it consolidation because I don't know what you call it when it goes sideways without trades or volume)? I working to learn what you are teaching. Thank you again.

$2,237 profit OBCI Long Stock

Entry comments: Small, speculative position on this new potential virus play that's spiked nearly $1/share in the last 30 minutes, everyone sharing old article how they were an Ebola play https://tim.ly/36uMieY and they make sanitizing products as tweeted here https://tim.ly/2NW5MSW VERY speculative but it is spiking and this sector is the hottest right now, so goal is to make 10-20% and could be quick so don't chase, I'm buying 30 cents/share off day high already

Exit comments: PERFECT midday trade in this speculative sector, now 4.60s so I might have played too safely, but not gonna get greedy now that my goals have been hit, beautiful breakout over the earlier highs, glad I was right here

This is beautiful to look at, to see you got in on the bottom of the green on the dip about 1:22 and getting out either on the shadow of the green candle at 1:38 or the red candle top shadow at 1:39. Amazing. Thank you!!!
