Entry Comments: I had my finger on the trigger for if this stock was to make an afternoon push, I saw a volume push and executed my order. Exit Comments: I assume that the MM's did that to get people to chase the stock, luckily I had a perfect entry and ended up only losing a tiny bit due to commissions. Burned a trade though unfortunately.
Entry Comments: This was a risky speculative play so I did not enter with size. It was up on rumor news so I knew what I was playing, but well worth the risk if it ended up running. Exit Comments: When it tanked and my risk was broken I did not freak out and instantly sell, waited for a bounce as high as I could and took my loss there. Used mental stop loss, cut wisely though. Proof on PDSB trade
Entry Comments: I did not get the best entry on this play and that's about the only thing I can knock on it (which is arguably the most important). I saw it creating higher lows though and that's what peaked my interest. Exit Comments: I knew this was an ABCD pattern forming. Earnings winner, low float, right time of day, it was a perfect play but I butchered my entry somewhat and wasn't able to get the size I wanted due to price. Decent gain though.
Entry Comments: This was a speculative o/n hold that I took that later resulted in an awful trade. Exit Comments: I went from being up $300 on my o/n position to adding size and trying to bank more gains. It was an extremely bad trade. I lost sight of the overall goal and starting out $300 a day is not bad, better than a 9-5.
Entry Comments: I was wanting to short this closer to 4.60 after it shows continuous signs of weakness but got filled a little lower, decent entry overall. Exit Comments: I sold into the weakness as it tanked, then got scared out as volume picked up insanely out of nowhere. Solid little gain while I still get used to shorting. Screenshot of proof on my AKRX long, overall profit should be close.
Entry Comments: This stock was on my short watch list but when I noticed how high up it was on the day I found it had released earnings, waited for consolidation entry and volume to show up and got in right before the second push. Exit Comments: Sold into spikes along the way. Decent gain. Not sure exact exit price but this is close.
Entry Comments: I liquidated a few o/n holds to play this, as I've watched it for a week and knew it had the capability to run or at least spike the next morning. Exit Comments: Although this is a green trade, it is an awful trade. I did not stick to my original strategy at all. My plan was to hold until as close to 7 as allowed, I got shaken out by MM mid day when it was basing at 6.4 and eventually ran to 7. Terrible.
