Definitely some FOMO today. I am trying to push myself a bit w size and w plays in a hot sector. Choppy ticker. couldn't get clear of high 1s. Was planning to take off tape once it did. Absolutely fat fingered the entry early and just had to manage accordingly. COVID related news. Room to run overhead, float is a little high but volume is very nice so far, could be a rebuy.
FGD B/O on great volume. Afternoon intraday B/O happened a little early but luckily I was at the screen to get in. Missed the speed up to sell into and when momentum clearly shifted I was patient enough to sell into strength. Not a bad trade at all. Again a little more patience probably would've done me well. Give it more time to work as there's still plenty of time in the day but Goode was also asking about how some guy w influence is in it so being conservative it is.
Didn't think I'd trade this ticker again. But the setup was solid, just being more conservative. Hidden size still there. Liquidity was good but volume is decent at best. Was not watching at all before P/M today. Pretty happy about how I traded it, LOD risk to start, good size, was ready to move risk but wasn't in a hurry too. Just used the tape guide me as best as I could.
Not a great entry by ETrade, missed the morning move but beautiful clean consolidation throughout midday. Lot of big orders flashing on both sides. Does hinder me that I wasn't watching the morning move. Could definitely go more and I did want to give it more time to grind but decent trade nonetheless. And it is having trouble in the .15s. We'll just call it taking the easy part, but patience could turn it into a better trade even though it's "harder".
Multi month B/O, 2nd G/D, good volume to start the day. No news. 1st attempt was a little too early in the day, 2nd on better volume and I was in. wide risk to start and just let a dip confirm the move. Kept tape up on this because it's been sketchy before. Seller in the .71s soaking size. Didn't respect risk, could be a weak hand shaken out at this point. Really decent daily chart though, we'll see if it has the gas.
Is it overextended? hot sector 2nd day B/O really going #3. Held the B/O pretty clean so it gave me more conviction. If i wasn't under PDT i might've been early. Glad I let it confirm a bit. Took off tape as it seemed pretty choppy and I think it helped out because movement did get pretty erratic shortly afterwards. just tried to follow the chart as best as I could. Hot sector is a crazy catalyst
Gap over the B/O level and nice hold throughout the day, FGD. Just didn't have the gas and maybe traders were focusing on the energy sector. Tried stop limit order for the first time and couldn't been worse because the order triggered but never fill when ticker broke down, was away from the screen. luckily bounced back. At least now I know
Little bit of FOMO little bit of testing, nice uptrending chart into the afternoon on a multi-day B/O setup. NYSE, liquidity is avg at best and obviously higher priced but also a fairly recent rev split. Also has a gap to fill, maybe has a morning spike tmr, but no news today and again volume is avg at best.
Couldn't break recent highs and was looking weak. 2nd crack of G/R gave me the conviction. A little more size than usual, probably more of a bad thing at this moment but luckily it worked in my favor. Could fade more by EOD but gonna just take my single. Tape wasn't super helpful. I think the 15m chart helped more to look left and see where support was and if levels would hold.
