Shorted this stock that was spiking on news in pm. It started to look a bit toppy and wicks were getting long at the top so I got in. Entry was too early. It did consolidate for a bit then cracked nicely. Got only half executed and got out too early stock dropped another 20 - 30 cents after my exit. Singles add up
Attempted to dip buy this stock that was spiking on positive trial news. Stock consolidated for a while and I became a bit biased that the stock would eventually trend higher. I stayed in this way too long and had multiple opportunities to exit with little pain but I got stubborn and the stock just cracked. Cutting losses quickly is paramount to my success
Dip bought this low float runner that had a big run up the previous day. This stock down trended the whole day and in the afternoon when it dipped to a key support level I went in and bought and it immediately spiked as shorts were covering. I let in consolidate and once it spiked I sold as it was showing signs of topping. Little gain on a super small position
Shorted this stock that was up on earnings. I felt it was overextended and due for a drop and it did. I had a chance to cover for a nice gain and did not cover and stock spiked. At this point I did hold overnight anticipating a drop at the open as this stock normally does. The nxt trading day after the holiday wknd I covered into a wash. Not proud of this trade at all...
Shorted this stock that had spiked day earlier and was trending down. I marked 2 resistance levels on the chart and I shorted at the 1st level and should have at the second level as it spiked when I shorted then just dumped immediately and I covered at a support level for a nice oegd play
