Number one rule cut losses quickly, tried to give it some time. Overall market shit; it was actually a fantastic trade because i cut losses. However, I shouldn't of got in the stock midday - i thought the stock was going to gradually uptrend all day. I was wrong, out for small losses.
OTC intraday breakout, held this stock. One of the best executed trades i have ever done. Stuck to my trading goals, I never sold into panic. Deffo one of the most choppiest breakouts i've ever witnessed. Made up i stuck to my goals most importantly and never got scared out when the stock dropped below my entry price and sold near the top.
Stupid way to close this great week! Chased an alert and chased the stock. I did recognise my mistake and cut losses immediately, however if i held till the close like i intended; i would have profited. The mindset of knowing i chased and followed an alert and the stock dropping from my buy scared me out.
