Entry comments: I can't believe I have fucked up twice selling this CPAP machine early when I could have doubled my funds. Bought before flying to ATL, after landing in ATL and watching it for 20 minutes I sold. Didn't know it moves soooo slow! Went to the hotel saw what happened and bought it back. After finishing my meetings and phone problems! I sold again to fucking soon. Leaving ATL tomorrow 6AM, land IAH 9AM...Tomorrow is Saturday! WTF!! Trading when you aren't totally focused has cost me $4000.!!!!

Exit comments: Every time I trade this I fuck up. Would have been great if I played contrarian!!

I bought twice and each time sold too early. Main reason for my failure in playing these winner trades was that I was traveling from Houston to ATL seeing my doctors, dealing with my mother's failing health. If you can't focus 100% on trading then you shouldn't be trading.

Long - Breakout Morning spike. Speculative trade on a chat pump that looked like it was breaking out. I tried to get out in the $2.90s but it dropped too quickly. Worst thing is I missed the main move on OTLK.....Lots of dumb trades this week.....

Long - P/M Momentum Scalp. Went long when breaking out past $1.30 with volume. Got to $1.34 but too much resistance.

Short - P/M Momentum Scalp. Got this completely wrong, was too quick to short, and would have been a very good long entry. Covered in 1 minute when I realised it was going against me.

Short - Going for an afternoon fade, but got a small bounce instead. This will be choppy, slow and boring for the rest of the afternoon anyway.

Long - Midday Perk. Small position on a low float breaking out to new HOD. Sold half at 3.11 the other half at break even for puny profits which will cover commissions, and not much else.

Short - Gap Down. Good setup, good entry, as usual got out way, WAY too early because the stock was holding up and I thought some big players were trying to prop it up (90% + Institutional holdings). It cracked just after I exited of course. Another textbook trade (with modest possible gains) that I chickened out on. Gotta stick to the plan!!
