$2,403 profit CANN Short Stock

Entry comments: Shorting on a little bounce after perfect fading to take it near red on the day, I missed the morning drop from 50 to 47ish, now its fading again, if it cracks 47ish it can drop to the low 40s, not much risk given ceiling at 51ish, goal is to make $2-4/share, careful it moves quick, my high net worth broker has shares to short, email admin@timothysykes.com if you have $30k or more and want access

Exit comments: Fading but not panicking like I want, only down $1/share on the day, this could still squeeze, better odds of reshorting in the afternoon or for morning panic tomorrow

I followed your advise and tried to short this stock and both E-Trade and Ameritrade told me this stock was not available to borrow....

$3,035 profit DANG Short Stock

Entry comments: Sepcualtive short as this stock is $1.50 off its lows on news of CFO resignining...up from the 10s before earnings, methinks this morning's runup is just a short squeeze, goal is to cover in the mid 17s

Exit comments: Taking safe profits on a speculative trade, could go further, but I don't know if it's gonna go red or if this is just a mid-day dip, after my big ZDPY loss, it's nice to lock in some solid profits to get my confidence back

($7,730) loss ZDPY Short Stock

Entry comments: Shorting on news of discrepencies with their PRs http://tim.ly/1icOT2J also this great trader http://bit.ly/gregmill says shares outstanding are 16 million so it's a $400 million company, this could tank $5-10/share on these revelations, easy to borrow at my high net worth broker, I just wanna make $2-4/share

Exit comments: Not cracking the way I wanted so I play it safe and get out, could still squeeze big

Looks it can hit 18 and then 15, two zones of previous support. I just have no shares to short at IB

I can't believe how far CANN tanked after huge spike . still green on the day though.

My thinking is most weed players jumped in ZDPY and CANN also MNTR.. Too much momentum , like trying to stop a freight train.

$2,288 profit BV Long Stock

Entry comments: Buying this earnings winner as it tests day highs, same industry as TRIP/YELP but this stock got crushed due to antitrust investigation, hottest internet sector, competitors all much higher priced, this earnings win/upping growth rate for 2015 could be the beginning of big short squeeze of 5 million shares...can't go longterm due to court ruling in a few days, but if it can break 8.20s, it can fill the gap to 8.80, that's my goal

Exit comments: Closing this trade out to focus on ZDPY which requires more time and I'm banking on

($756) loss PLUG Short Stock

Entry comments: Speculative short on green-to-red and it taking out the day low, a positive Seeking Alpha article today by notorious penny stock promoter Jason Bond is the kiss of death, he was once on Profitly but he deleted all his trades to hide his terrible track record, goal is to make 30-50 cents/share

Exit comments: Out for small losses, not breaking down or staying red, gotta play safe

I'm more curious to know how you find manage to find these home run hitters. I applied to be in your trading challenge team because I am confident I'll be able to add value to your team and be "jared from subway" (yes I saw your penny stock videos) never in my life dud I think stock charts had patterns but then again I just stared trading and I'm thankful to have come across your name!

$2,733 profit YOD Long Stock

Entry comments: Rebought as its holding just above morning spike highs of 5.60, good sign for another morning tomorrow, goal is to sell near 6

Exit comments: I gave it some time at the open to morning spike, no dice, playing it safe with this one since it was speculative and there's no specific catalyst right now, still had small gain, good risk/reward, good trade, congrats everyone
