Got in a little rich but didn't let it shake me out like MVIS. With news like revenue up 414% for 4 months compared to all of last year, this one has further to go but got in on my spike. Have been watching this since 4/9 and saw it up today. Could have read the news and made more but hey life is good :).
Entry comments: Swing trade for over the weekend. Up from spike on news of buyout. 2.66 Risk, Resistance: 3/3.10 Goal 3.10/3.40 Looking for Monday FOMO from this AH run. Stock was up today in a down market and up AH. Plan: Selling in to reversal.
Exit comments: AH/PM and open had optimism in buyout. No news but a nice spike this morning. Gave it room to breathe as it started to settle at 2.95 and then buyers stepped in. Reversal signs at 3.20. Sold into reversal.
Entry comments: Bought at breakout and ask crumbling. Already had spike in AM and closed high with much consolidation and no cracks. Risk of short squeeze, a winner when everyone is looking for CAPR. Patent extended news. Risk 1.55 Goals: 1.80/2/2.20
Exit comments: It had a wonderful spike that I didnt lock in. Mixing up the psychology of patterns is bad. Especially early on in trading as I dont grow my account. Lesson: sell on spike and goals met, dont get greedy. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Cut loses late. Got into play late. Was supposed to be a dip buy but I rushed it. Could have sold into break even but got greedy. Bad entry point and didnt give myself enough time to recenter from exit of swing trade. New rule: 15 min cooldown from finishing last trade until I get my horrible jump ins under control.
Entry comments: Swing for the day. Looked good and broke out when watching. Got in at good price as it rocketed up and ended above 5 day highs. Up on GILD failures, has a great SA article on it and has earnings coming up. People should be rushing for a new play this weekend as MESO blasted off again and GILD is on fire.
Exit comments: Good trade. Sold into reversal a little late but took the meat of the move. Has a good rating but no news. We should see it fall to 2.50 today if no volume steps in or any news.
Entry comments: A telecommunications company off a winning day, has history of being a multiday winner. Has to break 3.09 or 2.62 AH shredding it. Will cut at open if below 2.62 or no significant movement.
Exit comments: No volatility at open which scared me out when it fell below morning low. A few minutes later it cracked. Problem Hypothesis: Should have held my bottom stronger as it never actually cracked 2.75. A few minutes later it cracked my top of 3.09. Turned a 12% gain into a 2% loss.
Entry comments: Big uranium producer getting mentioned and has nice uptrend with 22% day. In a time of being at home, having power is big.
Exit comments: This one is probably the toughest yet as I got too greedy and didn't respect the last day of this stock and tried to wait it out for a larger gain. Should have respected the breakdowns more and taken my profits instead of locking in losses after it failed.
