Hi @Huddie I have been having a psychological block lately and I think I can pinpoint it down to Fomo. For example on the OE gap down set up tanks at the open I usually can be patient and let it come back however I seem to always jump in too early on the ensuing bounce. I have tried to keep my risk tight during this time as I know it's hurting me. Good example would be IGC today and NBEV yesterday.. Was wondering if you ever had this happen in your early days and how you handled it? I am trying my best to be patient on these yet at the same time I always get myself in a bit of trouble. Would love to hear what advice you would have regarding this and how you overcome it? Thanks again in advance Huddie your advice has kept me in this game so far!

@leiting I can't answer your question specifically due to each o/e gap down being a tad different than the other. My best advice to you would be to go back and watch the o/e gap down chapter in TTT and rewatch Grittani's old webinars until you have a better understanding of what to expect.

@Huddie Thanks for the advice man, you have been more helpful than you know. I will go back to basics and watch all of Gritani's info on O/e Gap downs again. I feel like I am "stressing the issue" as you and Gritani speak about while I need to be more disciplined with my entries and if my potential entry doesn't come or it's out of my wheel house as you put it, then I shouldn't trade it at all I find myself trying to force it at the less than ideal price points in terms of risk/reward.

Hi @Huddie, sorry for bothering you again, you have been somewhat of a silent mentor to me over the last year. I just have a question that has been tinkering for a while. When you are playing OE gap downs and shorting into daily res, do you always look into the filings with each play? Also if there is no active financing being done etc do you play it smaller or would you just go in with size if there is a perfect chart? I have been having moderate success with OE gap downs etc but from my data tracking they go r/g 42% of the time in 2018 which leads me to believe I should be looking to the filings for more conviction but would love your thoughts on the matter?

My size is generally determined by dollar risk, liquidity, and ideal chart set-up. Financing does not come into play as much with an o/e gap down, as it would with say, a short into resistance. I might be prone to playing more of a patience route if there is an active financing.

Paulo, saw the list of AWX trades by Mint Broker. Why do they do it that way? What are they trying to accomplish? Really interesting. Thanks for posting.

Hi @Huddie I had a quick question regarding risk management, When a said stock blows through your said risk on the chart, as I have experienced with some of these volatile plays lately, will you just smack the ask and try get out straight away bearing in mind that your fill will be higher or will you let it spike and get out into the next dip? Advice much apprecited, watching your videos have been instrumental in my overall profitibility, especially when you emphasised in focusing on the day that matters, that really hit home for me.

It’s really a case by case matter. Lower float stocks, you definitely want to get out as soon as risk is violated. Sometimes that means allowing for that wiggle room where you will lose a little more than expected. Most times there will be a dip, but at that point usually emotions are so screwed that you’d settle for that initial smack the ask price anyways.

Remember, the goal is to live to trade another day, not nail every play. No one trade is worth the potential blow up.

That makes a lot of sense from a psychological standpoint, never thought of it like that so appreciate you pointing out the treatment depending on float and volatility. Thanks for the valuable knowledge, really appreciate it.

Hey @Huddie! I feel like i'm verge of stopping paper trading and putting my money where my mouth is, what size account did you start with? Any advice for someone just starting out?

Ya, in the beginning - expect to lose more often than win. Profits and losses will be random until you can identify the patterns, so whatever you do put in, think of it as a sunken cost. Executing YOUR trade plans to perfection, whether a loss or a gain, is a very important habit to build. Whether its 100 shares of a stock, or 1,000, its the same trade.

Hey @Huddie , I just want to thank you for all that you do for the chat room as well as out of the chat room. I re watch your video lessons everyday as they provide such a great explanation of the patterns I look for everyday, and really give a better example of what to look for price action wise. I also read all of your commentary in the chat room EVERYDAY, as in the moment examples is where I learn best. I just wanted to make sure you knew how much you're appreciated. Thanks again sir.
