@DM4BigD I have plenty of cash. Thanks for caring. You just told me I was a good teacher on my other video. Ease up.

@DM4BigD That's excellent. I was an instructor in the Navy. It would be my dream to teach finance and the markets with an online platform assuming I am highly profitable of course. I appreciate good communication skills and training technique.

Thank you for your service to our country!!!! I nearly signed up for the Navy out of HS, but at the last minute went the college route. No regret but I really appreciate those that serve or have served our country.

My freaking dude right here.....I'm giving you a follow because if more people took the time to read your post and reflect like you do, there would be a lot more success here. My trading day was exactly what you outlined here. I started off with my watchlist/analyzed charts for the day. Did my homework like I should have. Bought two fakeout breakouts this morning...I was down but satisfied because I executed my plan. Fast foreward two hours...Its 11AM and I'm ignoring my rule I have in place not

not to day trade between 11-2 unless the setup is great with volume. I started scalping over and over again.....End of day results the same as if I didnt trade at all between 11-2 only instead I'm exhausted....

Craigtradesthis Jan 17, 11:19 PM Now that I'm looking at this more....I'm overcomplicating it....Its not a stock to day trade right now.... There is a huge cup and handle forming almost a yr long... I'm going to be buying into that small tomorrow stop loss 4.5 and forget it. Will look closer when it tests 5.5 and 5.7 :-

Didn't end up entering this....It will probably do what I thought it was going to do in the midterm, but the reward is not worth the risk holding a company like this for weeks at a time.

So, went on a week long or so hiatus to read and learn in an effort to stop overtrading and chasing strength or weakness. I have never traded 100k in one position! I think it has something to do with my trade imports, which I am still getting used to. My swings have been fine I guess. my biggest issue has been setting risk/ reward that is suitable to me. I want only very high reward to risk as I'm sure everyone does.....The only issue is I have a hard time setting levels for risk reward that all

that allow me to make a few grand without risking over a grand.....and I'm trading for a living so its hard to just say "wait for the good plays" and "don't trade everyday".

I have found that trading only the stocks with big volume and volitility is best. When the bollanger bands go vertical, big volume comes in and price is pushing above the 9 EMA, trading is fun. Good book- The Trading Book by Anne-Marie Baiynd a pro tading coach. I have been struggling with poor entries, so I am playing only the best setups.

Pumped! #Studyingsetups

KODK Anyone thinking of maybe buying some puts on this bad boy? KODK 7.5 Jan19 PUT looking pretty hot at .55. May rocket with a little panic selling/ correction!!

In hindsight, those 7.5 puts were waaaay out of the money. Better to buy a close to ITM put if the time frame is soon then to speculate about reaching a lower price in a shorter amount of time.
