I don't know if it's the coffee, but just felt so anxious and uneasy about this trade. Maybe it's a combination of that and losing so many trades recently. Stock was so volatile... Anyways, if I had held literally 5-10 more seconds, this would've been a 15-25% gain. I have to learn to let my winners run. I should've just set my stop to breakeven like I had planned because now it's moving up towards $0.59. With more experience I'll get better and less scared trading these. On to the next one!
Saw it breaking past that pre-market high and got in. But this one hit the ceiling and came back down. Should've stuck to my stop, but I hated the fact that I was wasting my last day trade... so I held it. I feel like I had the right idea on this trade, but it was just one of those times the pattern just doesn't work. Note to self: Stick to your plan even if it costs you a day trade.
So I was on baby duty this morning, the plan was to get in at the $4.75 break. Baby started crying so I had to attend to him. As I'm doing that, it breaks from $4.75 to $5.65 then halts. Emotions took over and I chased. Got in late and got burned. $5 mark was my oh #@$% stop loss which it hit shortly after. Note to self: Don't Chase and don't trade if your attention is going to be divided.
Was hoping it would spike right away, but it didn't so I got uneasy. Should've used a limit order instead of a market order, got a crappy exit thinking I would get out at .36'ish. My confidence is a little low, so I didn't want to see this reverse and have to take another loss. 3.4% gain isn't too bad I guess.
Got in thinking it would break the round number of $6 and keep running, but the stock just wasn't volatile enough and the float is too high. Cut my losses, took a small loss. Lesson learned. I might've forced this trade because I have to go to work in the next hour and wasn't seeing anything else.
Played the breakout, and made 13%. I was kinda upset about my other morning trade so I feel like that affected me on this trade. Got up to .74 so I missed out on a lot more profits. Could've made 40-50%, but because of my other loss earlier, I got scared out easily. Trading is such an emotional roller coaster...
I got uneasy when the stock didn't take off, I hesitated to get out. I put my order to get out, and it was so volatile that in seconds it just took a nose dive and I was forced to take the hit even lower. I feel like sometimes you have to go with your gut feeling even if it means missing out if it does end up spiking.
Plan was to buy half my position on the breakout and add my second half on a dip, but it didn't dip. Stock was too volatile. Robinhood execution is pretty bad. I tried to get out at $16.75ish which would've been 3% more, but instead took me out at $16.41. Overall, decent trade. Would've been more patient, but I literally have to go to work in the next 15 minutes. Learn and move on.
