-$220 loss VRPX Long Stock

Entry comments: One more dip buy here as this looks like SILO yesterday and even though it tanked today it bounced midday/in the afternoon, goal is to make 5-10%, could be stubborn on my part as SERV is the best play, but testing a thesis here, lets see if it works

Exit comments: No bounce, I'm out, into timeout I go, terrible mistake focusing on VRPX over SERV which was the gimmie today, aye aye aye

-$525 loss VRPX Long Stock

Entry comments: Dip buying this big runner wayyyy off its earlier highs, goal is to sell into a bounce in the low 2s, cut losses if no bounce

Exit comments: No true bounce and now we get some panic so rule #1 cut losses, small losses are fine and part of the game, better play was the morning spike, just like SILO yesterday, good lesson for me

$380 profit ZAPP Long Stock

Entry comments: Dip buying the morning panic on this recent runner, see chat commentary, goal is 5-10%, classic http://tim.ly/sykesmorning pattern you gotta love it

Exit comments: Taking the solid single, I should've gone biger, but thought maybe 12 would crack...maybe a 2nd panic as this bounce seems weak though so good to lock in small profits as it seems that's the kind of days its gonna be

-$122 loss SHPH Long Stock

Entry comments: Dip buying this big premarket runenr on positive cancer news https://tinyurl.com/33hcbdpf let's see how far it can go, goal is to make 10-20%, cut losses if no further spike but most people don't even see the news yet

Exit comments: No followup spike, sellers seem determined...maybe it goes more when the market opens, but I can't risk it given this ugly action, small losses are fine and acceptable/part of the strategy with breaking news

$175 profit SERV Long Stock

Entry comments: I'm buying this premarket runner I highlighted in the watchlist on news of Nvidia investing as they have cool robot food delivery, Uber also invested, everyone waking up to them, goal is to make 5-10%, not sure if it can really fly since its not low float but looks to have solid base here in the 4.30s

Exit comments: Zzzzzz I'm out of this for small gains as it just doesn't seem like it can spike big and that opens the door to panic so I'm out to be safe, I like the cancer news on SHPH and the action better there anyway for potential bigger spike

Entry comments: Partial fill on the dip buy of this big runner off its highs in the 16s, would love a bounce to the 15s, similar as ZAPP yesterday which worked but I didn't have patience

Exit comments: PERFECT BOUNCE into the 15s as I wanted, not getting greedy, locking in this single, nice moral victory after tricky day, very niiiiice

$975 profit SILO Long Stock

Entry comments: One more attempt to dip buy this as it looks like it can still squeeze, maybe I'm being stubborn but goal is 5-10% bounce, cut losses if no bounce

Exit comments: Nice to take small profits here, it probably bounces more, but I have an insane day and just don't have time to keep watching...nice moral victory here if nothing else

-$445 loss SILO Long Stock

Entry comments: This looks to actually be consolidating again, goal is to sell into a pop ab ove 4, small $ position in case I'm wrong but this has surprised me all day so lets see if it has more push

Exit comments: Out for small losses, no bounce, still up a ton, dumb trade, into timeout I go

Every time you take these small takes on your position and tell us the stk did not behave like you expected so you get out. Reinforces your lessons and the other mentors. Thank you for helping keep us from screwing up.
