Number of Shares
Colorado Springs, CO
Mixed feelings about this trade. Had a great initial entry at 9.93 but only got 100 shares out of the 1,000 I was trying to buy. Moved my bid up to 9.95 but didn't get any more. Should have moved the bid to 9.98 or 10 even. When the afternoon ramp took off with a vengeance I FOMO chased and bought the other 900 shares I was trying to get almost 50 cents higher now. That messed up my risk management and I couldn't be patient anymore and let the trade work and ended up panicking out.
Number 5 bounce, first green day setup. Was trying to get in about 20 minutes earlier at 1.99, but had to take care of some business so I canceled that order and got back right as the ticker was starting to take off. Bought into strength. Sold into pops along the way. Really enjoyed this one. Will verify this trade when I can get my Venom/IB account imports working again.
Quick day trade on a low float stock that had a ton of volume. This is a setup I will start playing more. I feel like I had very good entries and exits on this trade, entering right before the afternoon ramp and selling the last of my shares near the top. I was completely out before the big afternoon crack.
OTC multi day breakout. This was a very choppy after the initial breakout. Got out with an average right above my risk. It would have been possible to hold a little longer and get out with a small profit, but didn't want to take any chances as it wasn't and still isn't clear that the breakout will hold. These super low priced stocks are also killing me in per share commissions, so I think I will have to raise my minimum price on the tickers I play.
OTC multi day breakout. This was pretty much a replay of my last trade on this ticker. The breakout failed the next morning and I cut losses quickly. I think I will stop playing such low priced stocks for a while because the commissions on these position sizes are killing me. Will verify this trade when I can get my Venom/IB account imports working again.
Number 5 bounce, first green day setup. I bought this one right out of the open. I think I was trying to buy 5000 shares, but only got a partial fill. I should have sold this one into the morning spike, but I'm still working out how to best play this setup. Will verify this trade when I can get my Venom/IB account imports working again.
Nasdaq multi month breakout on earnings win. Tried to get in on a pullback, but the pullback didn't stop. I failed to cut losses at my risk level of 9.50. Then there was a small pop back close to my risk level and instead of getting out, I decided this might still be a profitable trade so I would wait. Huge mistake as the bottom completely fell out and I had to cut losses for almost 4 times my risk level. This one made me realize I need to size down for a bit until I can cut losses quick again.
Number 5 bounce play. Frustrating because I made $480 on the trade but paid $238 in commissions. Almost half my profits. Didn't have a great entry though. Will verify this trade when I can get my Venom/IB account imports working again.
This was a good number 5 bounce setup but I was trying to buy 50,000 shares and only got 200. I didn't want to buy the ask, but in the end it would have still be a great trade with a 0.20 entry as well. Will verify this trade when I can get my Venom/IB account imports working again.
