Drastically fucked this one up. Had a huge emotional upheaval in my personal life and this was a prime opportunity to watch how emotions taint trading. Just kept making this trade worse - even had an opportunity to salvage most of the loss on Friday and somehow missed the exit, making it even worse. I am humbled and kind of humiliated to be posting this one... but have committed to tracking trades and won't let it stop me. Back to $200 trades for the time being and practicing always cutting.
Just a quick morning trade selling the rally. Could have held this one even just a bit longer and made my 40% target, or way longer into today and hit around 300%. However, I was at a hotel with my kids and my focus was thin so I just banked the profit and moved on with my day. Small, consistent forward steps.
Got back in this one on the bounce, but it held up much better than I expected. With time decay and the strike price being a little further out (I chose this one due to wash sale rule and my having just used the 235 strike), I was not certain this play would go my way. I did cost average a number of times when it bounced back up because I was fairly confident it wouldn't hold, but this was a bit beyond my desired risk comfort at the moment. Locked in solid profits when it went down around 237
Nailed this one on the morning bounce. Could see MSFT was going to open red and probably touch up toward the top of its channel around 239-240, so got in first thing on the bounce and took quick profits when it did as expected.
Entered this one on a bounce to 120 after seeing the solid green candle on the thesis that it would go down and fill the gap from yesterday to 116.27. Seemed to be having a hard time breaking down past 119, though, so safely booked my profit. Remembering the value of $50 and that small and consistent, habitual steps forward is where its at.
Entered this one on the morning dip but wasn't super confident because it had already run up so much. When it looked like the market wasn't going to be able to make it past the 10,400 area, I went ahead and cut keeping my investment safe. I could have held longer, but I'm happy to practice cutting when the price action isn't quickly showing me what I'm looking for.
Saw this one dropped through 52 week lows so decided to jump in. Didn't hold long simply because my attention wasn't fully on the market and just wanted to lock in safe profits. Small and consistent steps forward.
Entered this one on the dip when it looked like we'd be having the first green day. Booked profits quickly because I wasn't sure green day would hold and I had an electrician arriving. Small and consistent steps forward everyday.
Entered this one on a secondary dip of the day. Sold really quickly though because I wasn't sure it would hold the first green day.
Entered on the bounce but definitely entered too early. Cost averaged once and booked profits quickly since I was over invested. Small and consistent steps forward.
