Buying a dip in the price action. Expecting a run sooner, but I got scared out early and took gains as soon as I could. Then the move I was waiting for happened. Took a TINY gain, instead of what could have been a couple hundred, but at least it wasn't a loss. Trading scared.
Got a bit lucky with this one. Trying for EOD trade and couldn't get filled on my sale so got stuck with a swing. Slept through the alarm this morning, and by the time I woke up I grabbed the phone and sold into a morning spike. Was kind of cool to make money in my sleep and wake up making $200 from bed, though...
Trying for a small EOD trade. Even though they are tiny wins, I have been having success with this type of trade lately. I look for a pattern that has shown strength and kept its highs, then look for a pre-market-close dip to buy into. I thought I was gonna get stuck in this one, but once the flurry of market close orders went through, my sell did as well.
Attempted the same thing as earlier this morning. Trying to trade price action and momentum. Again, not a huge win, but I'm keeping my position size small and trying to do a better job about planning my trades. My goal was 10 cents again, but this time I took profits a little early and got out.
I thought I had the bottom of a pullback, but it kept moving. It didn't hit my risk level though and so I held as it moved slowly towards my goal of a 10 cent gain. I had a buy order in at 2.52 and it hit it twice and then tanked HARD suddenly. I got scared and shook out for a whopping 10 cent gain (after commissions). Still trading small while I work on getting back into trading.
