Because previous trade was adjusted by ToS to 7800 and I had covered for 7900 after failing to adjust the amount myself I was now long for 100 shares. Couldn't be arsed to trade anymore after making so many mistakes so closed with minimal profit. Mistakes continue to roll over with me posting proof shot with account details. WAKE UP DUMB DUMB!
With the earlier 100 share trade I set ToS for 7900 to buy for later to make it a round 8000. I forgot that I had done this and ended up with a short position thinking that I was just closing the previous trade's 100. Quickly realised my mistake and managed to cover without any loss. The gotcha with this trade was that ToS adjusted the 7900 to 7800 because of the previous trade's 100 still being open.
A series of screwed trades today. I nearly had this correct except that ToS reset my 8000 shares to 100 after I was watching $NVDA (which I think resulted in my missing the bull flag you see at the open). As for the entry - even though I waited for a dip it went down further and it looked like it was going to break the upwards trend which would have been a $1000 underwater had I got the full amount correct.
Couldn't pull the trigger to short at $20.18 even though 5 EMAs were lined up as I thought it would bounce off $20. Waited & took this trade instead. Plan was to play the bounce off support at $19.5 and sell at VWAP. As soon as I was in I wanted out as $19.6 was acting as resistance. Sure enough candles failed and I was down a few hundred but held as 5 minute looked ok. Fortunately bounce off 1 min EMAs pushed me to break even so I took it and didn't care about push to VWAP which did eventuate.
Thought this would be a short after $NVDA miss, but held out and played the tide. Missed wedge because it didn't look like a wedge. Got in after it broke $20.5 as I thought it would go to $21. Had a few hundred in profit, but next candle failed, went underwater for a bit, broke even and wanted to sell as it didn't seem to want to go any further. After I'm out it then drops and bounces off $20.4 twice to go to $21 which would have made a good trade.
Knew AMD's Next Horizon event was on so hung around. No live streaming of event so resorted to blog to get news (which all the big people knew about already as there was high option activity beforehand). Should have switched back to ToS quicker than what I did after reading that Amazon Web Services were using AMD processors. Saw the spike jumped in got a clean entry, had over $3000 in profit, but didn't cash in as I didn't know how far it would go after it faltered. This trade saved my arse.
This time the 5 minute EMAs were in line along with the 1 minutes. Had over $1000 in profit when it hit $20.5 but I failed to take it thinking it would go higher. Yet another case where I have failed to lock in profit - need some sort of rule to abide by - if candle at key level fails to go through then close position.
