715M float, earnings winner, 3.00 range. Bought this on the dip when it broke 31.80 but totally underestimated the move. Should've sold at 32.60 for a 4:1 reward to risk so only took 10% of the move as it went all the way up to 33.67. Not used to trading large caps so need to be more patient next time. Happy with my entry though.
29M float, earnings winner, 1.50. Had the right idea on this but had the worst execution. Miscalculated so accidentally bought extra 200 shares which caused me to stop out early. Should've stopped out at 5.60 which it never hit. Went up to 6.25 after I sold so could've made $200. grrr
2.26B float, no news, 3.00. FOMO traded this when I missed my entry at 5.10 on PLAG at the open. Should've sold this at 46.00 but was already distracted. NO MORE trades on large float companies especially up on no news. If I kept watching PLAG there was another opportunity to get in. I missed the opportunity and used up valuable capital on this trade. Lesson learnt!
295M float, earnings winner, 1.40 range. Bought this pre-mkt when it went to 12.11 and dipped and broke 12.00. Goal was 12.30-12.40 so should've sold went it went up to 12.25 but stupidly held and got stopped out. 20 mins holding it felt like forever. I'm not good buying pre-mkt and it distracts from my morning prep so going to avoid pre-mkt action going forward. Made up for loss buying $SKX at the open and making 82c/share.
921M FLOAT, FIRST LP TO LAUNCH VAPE-READYHIGH-POTENCY CBD OIL CARTRIDGES, 3.50 RANGE, all-time highs. This was on my morning watchlist. Was watching for the dip so when it panicked and bounced I bought on the break above 11.90. Timed it perfectly because it dropped $1.40 in 10 mins after I sold so the second bounce was larger. Had 4 exit prices but it averaged to 12.14
88M float, JP ADDS CO TO ANALYST FOCUS LIST PT $35.00, 6.00 RANGE. Again had the perfect entry like yesterday on $IGC but fear of losing took over my rational mind and I stupidly sold a min later before my stop when I saw a little dip. My goal was 23.50 (3 x risk) and it did exactly as I thought. Lesson: Trust & follow your process and don’t sell before your stop when you have a great entry. Being fearful is just as bad as being greedy!
26M float, no news, pot stock, recent mover, 1st green day. Had the perfect entry buying at the open when it dipped then broke 5.00. Saw big sellers & gave myself every reason to sell (scary pot stock, high volume pre-not/crowded stock) even though the chart was perfect & it's the 1st green day. Could've made 10 times more. Trading is definitely an art not just science but better green than red.
Don't know why I can't change my last trade to SGH, keeps coming up as UGH. 12M float, Earnings Winner, 4.60 range. 2nd trade on this stock. Hesitated on first dip at open so got stopped out but went in again when it held the 33.50 level. Rode it up close to my goal of 35.00. Stock did exactly as I thought and if I didn't hesitate on first trade and bought above 33.00, it would've been about $2/share win or 4 times risk
