Entry comments: I went bigger like I wanted to earlier not eh nice afternoon consolidation, the PR is still VERY positive/hyped up, will do overnight video lesson, but my goal is to sell in the .13s or even .14s or .15s today or tomorrow, this is a classic first Green Day on a former supernova
Exit comments: Nice little gain here, not as big as I wanted, but I'll take it, potential rebuy on any big dip only
This was my dumbest trade ever and this is because: I didn't cut losses quickly, I entered knowing that it had a high possibility of dropping even further after the weak bounce off of past support at .045, and it literally went up 600% in 2 days so should have waited for a bigger drop and it was looking like a market selloff due to all the stocks dropping big. I won't trade for the rest of the month as i will be studying video lesson and getting back in the right mind set.
Entry comments: Big float company that gap up few days ago and up trended higher today plan is for it to regain previews high by market open and possibly continue to move throughout the day. key Support level at 5.08 that was already tested couple of times after hours is holding decent. there is news of a 900m offering, plus a "good earnings report" but that is in May. Goal is to make .50 cents but there is a bit of resistance at 5.50. would be up early to see how it reacts.
Exit comments: Ran out time to wait for market open and got out as soon as there was an opportunity and took small gains. Goal was to get out at 5.50 but sometimes you have to get out before things turn ugly. -10 for commissions
Entry comments: Former Supernova from a few years ago spiking big on this surprisingly solid seeming news with Polartec https://tim.ly/2PhOuiC quote from Polartec CEO very hyper, goal is to make 20-40%, this thing can fly so be careful, small $ position since it's up so much already today
Exit comments: Zzzzz I thought ti could keep going Supernova, but it's looking top since it's up so much today already, I might re-buy b before the market close but we'll see how it acts, right now just taking small profits to lock the gains in and be safe midday
Entry comments: I dip bought this recent runner into its big morning panic, classic http://tim.ly/sykesmorning panic pattern, a little higher priced than I like, but goal is to make 30-50 cents/share on the bounce
Exit comments: Whew, even though it's a higher priced stock it's still a rush and my goals have been met so I won't get greedy, solid profit here
Nice small swing trade that was executed alongside my other swing trade GOGO. 10% gain on GOGO and 7.6% on this one. Both were afternoon dip buys with hold for a day or two in mind along with monitoring risk. I am using these small positions to take a little more risk with the goal of being more patient and thinking of some trades as swing trade material and others as day trades depending on what the market is showing.
Small position size learn play. I have been having some success with swing trading plays and adjusting my risk level based off of volume traded. Where I used to go into every trade with a specific time-frame in mind of when I want to close, I am more willing to keep a close eye on it over time and adjust my risk level to be a little more risky when low or insignificant volume is present.
