Entry comments: Speculative play, more for educational purposes and focus on discipline with cutting losses and sticking to plan. Short squeeze today and pulled back to hold support around 1.55ish. There’s a huge bid size of 150 at 1.54, so I set my limit buy for 1.55, and will sell if breaks below that more than 2%. Of course, when executed, the 150 bid size dropped to 1.50 on Level II. ha, games perhaps?
Exit comments: Executed at breakeven as it spiked back up but not moving as wanted, so I'm out. I didn't expect much from this trade anyway. Practice...
Entry comments: Dip buy on crypto Ethereum Classic related play: Grayscale Ethereum Classic Trust. ETC at critical support level after crypto correcting for a few days. Bitcoin holding at and above a support level of $9800 after a 30% pullback from its highs. Also oversold on 4 hr RSI. Expecting a bounce soon, as these crypto plays tend to recover after such a selloff. Will swing this or not depending performance during market hours. More aggressive here as I'm comfortable with crypto plays.
Exit comments: $BTC at a major wall of sellers now after a 18-19% runup in < 24 hours; ETC pulled back a bit from yesterday highs, why get greedy? I exited immediately at market open with AON fill. Saw the bid/ask at 16/16.33 w/an average of 16.16, so set sell limit order at 13.00 bid. Beautifully filled higher in 5 seconds at open! I didn't want to take a chances / push my luck, as this is my biggest victory yet while establishing my new discipline since I joined Tim Sykes' education journey. 🥳
Entry comments: Dip buy, one share lol not much risk or reward but practice disciplined trading.
Exit comments: Was targeting to break resistance around 152.5 to make this somewhat a reward. I took a nap and set a stop loss at 149.99. It executed at stop loss of 149.99 as it dipped down. Another reason to trade liquid stocks in general. Anyway, at this point, I'm no longer interested in this play. If it didn't dip down, I would have continued to play it out.
Entry comments: Possible b/o around 7.80-7.83, 52 week high, not a first green, no major news, but will stop out if collapses by close. Strong resistance above...
Exit comments: It barely gapped up in premarket, and as soon as market opened there was a big red candle. Literally after I sold at near b/e, it spiked right up seconds after I sold! Ugh...!!! Moving on...
Entry comments: Dip buy, slow moving IPO, but practicing discipline.
Exit comments: After some upward movement, I set the stop loss at 44.65 because I figured if it broke back down, then it's not really gonna rebound. Perhaps I should have set the stop loss a little below the support line, but I didn't want to take a loss. I hoping for a higher low. It was a very conservative move. But perhaps need some breathing room, as I keep stopping myself out only to find it move up afterwards.
Entry comments: Entry comments: 52 week high, b/o today, waited for proper pullback at intraday support, and tried to get in around 10.97 but missed it and chased to 11.00. Will see how this plays out...
Exit comments: Stopped out at 11.02, after a quick rise up, it came back down. Perhaps it will hold on support and continue up; however, $SPWR is below vwap at this point. If it hasn't moved at this point, not too interested. Especially since it's not near HOD and it isn't a first green day.
Entry comments: Entry comments: What makes this trade different from the last time I traded BLGO is that I bought at the best possible place on the key support. My entries are usually faulty, so this was a big success in that sense. So less risk and more reward here as we touched a bottom. Will watch carefully it breaks that support. Dip buy on support, plan to sell on a quick bounce. I couldn't resist the entry.
Exit comments: I wanted to execute at .224 or .225 but the asks were stacking up below these numbers, so I kept lowering my ask. Finally I executed my remaining 200 partial share at the bid of .21, costing me additional commission but was worth the exit for me. Nice mini profit percentage. The only criticism of this trade is I am risking more capital than my other trades, which could become a problem in the future if losses accrue. So will stay aware of scaling position size according to reward risk.
Entry comments: Wolf pump, experimenting with these pump plays. Looking for a bounce and a b/o of 4.9 resistance. Didn't execute best entry. Slightly chasing ugh. [Firstrade]
Exit comments: I'm out. Not feeling comfortable with these kind of pump plays. I gave a little breathing room to exit with a 4.70ish mental stop, waited for a bit, and once it spiked back up resistance, I was out. Plus watching asks stack up on level 2. Overall, I'm not seeing any results on these ineffectual pumps so far by Jaks-Fierce . Mainly not moving as I want, so when in doubt, get out. [Firstrade]
Entry comments: Pump and dump play. Received a newsletter from Fierce Analyst on June 17 and 18 -- the same promoter who pumped up $CLCI. I am experimenting with micro position to see how this works, (or if this works), so loss is not a hit. Tuition costs needed for education ;) [Firstrade]
Exit comments: Took a loss on this one. The % of loss seems dramatic, but I only took a $25 position knowing this was extremely risky. Ok, done with Jaks-Fierce pump & dump plays. But glad I tried it out, as at least for my taste, just not digging these plays. Had chance in morning to sell at 0.094ish but a big seller came in fast and knocked it to .065ish, which was another sign to exit. [Firstrade]
Entry comments: Bought aftermarket. First major green day, cup and handle, possible gap up b/o tomorrow. Reminds me of recent $VUZI chart. Risk to reward, 12-13¢ downside with possible reward of 50¢ before next major resistance at 2. A better entry would have been at 1.37.
Exit comments: Damn, it gapped up then down premarket, then on open dropped. No play. I could have gotten out around 1.45-1.47, but I waited a little longer then it was down at 1.43 then 1.42. I didn't set a limit order so it took me out of the position at 1.41 with market order (silly, no market order!). We're looking at a 4¢ difference. So followed plan but in future if not spiking immediately, get out immediately. Overall $4 loss could have avoided. Overall, trade was never ideal. No news going in.
