($1,050) loss VII Short Stock

Entry comments: Retrying here as industry leader DGLY is down $1/share in the last few minutes, could be the beginning of the end for all these plays

Exit comments: Not cracking even though DGLY is, I chose the wrong one, gotta play safe, congrats to DGLY shorts I ROYALLY missed that opportunity

$700 profit VUZI Long Stock

Entry comments: DON'T CHASE this if it spikes big, but I have to buy this multi-month technical breakout as the wearable sector is surging as evidenced by big spikes in HIMX/KOPN, goal is just the low 3s, nothing huge, but a solid breakout thanks tot he sector/chart, very low risk

Exit comments: Taking profits just because I'm tired of watching it, I have wayyyy too many stocks on my watchlist right now, gotta focus my short-term trading on more volitale names as I'm telling http://tim.ly/sykesmc during our live trading webinar happening right now...still good risk/reward on this, easy $

$379 profit VII Short Stock

Entry comments: Shorting this wearable camera play, it spikes and then tanks, always, just took out morning support at 4.30, goal is to cover under 4

Exit comments: Covered basically breakeven into fade, I don't like how this stock spiked up to 4.40, might still spike again, playing safe

$171 profit IVDA Long Stock

Entry comments: Low float, RISKY wearable camera play on new news today http://finance.yahoo.com/news/iveda-collaborating-body-worn-camera-130000042.html VERY illiquid so I'm only taking small position but it might fly like LLLI did yesterday so it's worth the risk, goal is the high 1s, if not low 2s, not sure how it'll go, 25 cents/share of downside risk from my entry, DON't CHASE if it spikes too big

Exit comments: No other chatrooms/news services picking up their 9am news, that's the risk, if they had picked it up it'd spike like VII, it still might but I have busy day and thought we might get a morning spike which we didn't...gotta trade these safe, if nobody notices the news they dont spike then they sit there or worse tank. I know it's confusing I'll make a video lesson explaining it all but it was worth the risk to buy, puny profits for me, re-buy if and when news gets spread/volume spikes

yea this one shoulda totally went up but but it looks like DGLY didnt hold its premarket highs so i got out as soon as it hit .16 this morning.

Affirm! This one is a short @ $.14. Conservative entry, plenty of room if it "supernovas."

Thanks Tim! Made some good calls on LLLI and IVDA, I just held LLLI too long and it dropped, but I made a quick 5% on IVDA. Thanks again for your hard work and dedication!

$820 profit JRJC Short Stock

Entry comments: Fading into the market close near low of the day, 1st down day on the big runup, goal is to make 40-70 cents/share into morning panic/gap down tomorrow

Exit comments: Covered for puny gains not because I don't think it drops more but because I found shares of DGLY to short via my high net worth broker so I need to focus all my energy on that because I can make $20-30k there vs only $3-5k on JRJC, gotta prioritize during busy times, I'm waiting on DGLY now, I want a big morning spike to short into

$7,613 profit LLLI Long Stock

Entry comments: Bought this DGLY/TASR sympathy play on nice dp off its highs to reduce the risk, still surging on news of this big potential order from Canada http://tim.ly/VKQBhA goal is to make 20-30-50%, not sure how high it can go, gotta love penny stocks, DGLY keeps going too

Exit comments: Tried to give it time, it broke out to new highs, but just barely, too close to being a double for my comfort, I might re-buy some before the market close, but nothing huge given this kind of toppy-like price action
