This lesson is painful, but priceless, this will not define you, but be one of the cornerstones in your trading history. Chin up, it's only up from HEAR

Bro, I could feel your pain as you were walking us through the trade on HEAR. That is huge to man up to, thank you for sharing. I went through something similar on $I when it b/o on earnings ramping to the 13's. Not near as much of a loss ($700) but I know the feeling. I got stubborn and ignored price action wanted that thing to fail. You're all ready a better trader bc of this, you'll be surprised how fast you get your losses back. Stick to your rules, see you in chat.

trust me when I say be patient, I learn that I was overtrading just to trade, I was making charts to look like I wanted them to look and not allow the truth to be told. I spent about 100hrs just watch the tim video's and just stop trading. I also sold all my stock at a neg or maybe a small gain, but mostly at a neg. Hard to see that money go down the drain. Study and find your style. most of all do not follow or chase the chat rooms picks. 99.9% of the time they ae in the stock that they mentio

@JKelly lol. Yeah I considered CP but I think I will wait until I am shorting more before I try them out. It looks like they have a lot of fees for just about everything and since I mainly go long, IB should offer me everything I need.

@dux Hey Dux, what would you recommend the minimum sample size should be for back testing a known strategy? Sorry man I know you're busy but this question is killing me and I need to hear it from the spreadsheet man himself lol.

long and short ratio suppose to be 1:3 so if you use 1000 for long then 3000 for short. it really depends, i use 5000USD to test long strats 15000 for shorts

If you trade with a Macbook, Just open QuickTime and click "New Screen Recording" and Boom. Best software out there.

@Javadmila Don't focus on trying to make a trade work midday. It rarely works out and rarely do solid setups present themselves midday. Wait until 2PMest and one to look for HOD breakouts and stuff that is holding its gains on the day, has great volume, is setting higher lows and buy the HOD break. Look at my ACBFF trade here: https://profit.ly/1Mv2rY for a chart example. Hope this helps

@dux Hi Buddy, How to see if a company has issued warrants? Where do you typically look to check warrants?

dmatin Feb 13, 1:27 PM

10Q is where you want to look first. If it's too old try the 8k's.

When entering a trade, it helps to have a stop loss price pre determined just in case things don't go my way.

You are right - reacting to price action is better than trying to meet your expectations about a trade.

MYSZ failed morning spike got me too, and I didn't even chase but got an excellent entry. There are times where you should be patient and there are times where you shouldn't.
