Entry comments: Swing. China virus. Stock been moving between 84-79 for days. Attempt to swing with 78 as risk. TGT 85's.
Exit comments: Done. Wasn't paying attention to the overall market nor the it was trending below VWAP. Got out before Risk breached because it was staying below VWAP & good case for shorts. No Chart.
Entry comments: Day. News: Analyst comment & court ruling possible. Gap/Crap B/O above VWAP & HOD. RISK: LOD 5.07. TGT: 10-12% 5.99-6.10.
Exit comments: Risk breached. LESSON: Stock hit 5.75 2 times making a double top; would have been 5% gain. Get out when this occurs even though TGT not hit; saw this during paper trading & didn't think of it until was too late. Plus, don't play analyst comment stuff & POSSIBLE court things.
ENTRY NOTES: B/O above 52 wk high. RISK: intraday SPT 2.85. TGT: 10-12% 1.13-3.19. EXIT NOTES: Looked failed spike & bailed out. Don’t like B/O’s after successful previous play. LESSON: 1 play/day until I’m used to trading & can trust my process. B/O’s aren’t my go-to @ the moment so less confident & that's why I exited instead of letting it play out. Need to practice B/O's as 2d type play after consistent in my pattern. No chart, don't need for reference.
Entry comments: Because I'm stubborn & dumb. I know this can do better. The 1st one, on 25 Mar, my thesis was correct, but put in stop loss wayyy down cause had to work on fence. Somehow, manipulators did short term drop to get my 10 shares, then back up. Would've been $200 gain. So this is last attempt.
Exit comments: Just got out because I just can't stay in this long term. Didn't pick it correctly and not what I studied. I'll leave big stocks to investors. I'm out. No chart because I don't need it for study. Not doing large cap companies again!
Entry comments: Day, turned into Swing. This was supposed to be day trade, but TGT not hit & slow mover. • Gap/Crap B/O above VWAP & HOD. RISK: LOD 3.37; moved to next day LOD 3.55. TGT: 10-12% 4.01-4.08.
Exit comments: That was completely boring. Forgot the rule about selling into gap up. Wanted to sell into gap up since I had to hold overnight. It gapped up to 3.90's, but since it didn't hit my TGT, I held. Sold @ EOD even though it didn't break my risk cause I did not want to hold over weekend. It gapped up to 3.80 AHs. Lesson: 1 mil shares in a day not equal to faster moving stock. Stay away & sell @ gap up in AM even if didn't hit TGT.
