Small loss on SPWR today. No biggie, but I decided to try a test swing trade on GEO. I mean, why not? I'm super intrigued by swing trading and I'd like to gain some experience and build good habits for when I'm over PDT. From what I've learned so far: 1) you should wait until after the FGD (after multiple red days down to multi-term support). Zip Trader uses the SMA on 1YR charts and once price-action crosses it, that's called "confirmation" of the bounce. His thing is, wait til confirmation before entering the stock (risk management). 2) You should focus on tickers that are locked in a horizontal channel, meaning that the price-action has the same multi-term highs and lows for an extended period of time. 3) I've found that you should focus only on tickers that have not gapped down huge overnight within the past year (risk management). If it hasn't done it in the past year, it probably wont be doing it this week either. These tickers are too boring for most people who want to make huge gains fast, but as I said; my number one priority is getting over PDT for ease of entry and exit, while also refining my strategy with experience. I'm currently long with half-size, up $12 and looking to hold overnight until about $16.50 (where I'd take profits of about $150). What I've also noticed is that my other Swing Trade watchers that are running all day today dipped at the open (all after first green days) but immediately went back red to green. Had I entered TEN after the dip, I'd be up $200 right now (ain't that a bitch LOL -- for a LT Swing Trade that's supposed to be a slow-mover). GEO has been struggling to get back green, so I'm thinking that this may be a red day before the true run. For that reason, I may cut profits earlier. Worst case scenario, if it ran against me huge, I'd be down $20. Nothing! Worst WORST case would be a tank (-$40) but I'd catch it way before then at about -$5, because I have mobile alerts set up. Very intriguing! I may stick to swing trading until PDT, but the problem is having tickers available to get in at the right time. Right now I have 5 of 26 that are ready to be bought. I'm loving how calm and controlled swing trading is. If it goes well this week, I'll increase to full-size.
