Well I gotta say that I've had 3 good trading days in a row, not that I'm saying I'm now ready for the big leagues but I'm definitely getting started down the right path. Monday I had to control the degenerate trader in me and took a small loss after several attempts at ANTE, managed to finish green on the day by just a little. Tuesday was a better day, took a couple of small losses when the trades didn't go the way I wanted and a couple of small wins that did. Finished just barely red on the day but it was full of great lessons and trades. Now for today, my first trade was a hold from Tuesday that didn't gap or move upon the open so I cut losses very quick. Then came $GENE and GAXY. caught the spike on both but got scared out of $GENE too early probably because of my previous bad trades that went south from holding too long. But I got a nice little single on both. About 30 minutes later I was going to do a little side work and while driving my phone was blowing up with alerts. While sitting at a red light I decided to check on the last couple of those and @timothysykes was going on about $GENE still going. So I open my Etrade account at this incredibly long red light and look in on it. Decided to come out of retirement and give it another go but since it was already up $1 over where I'd sold before cautiously only took half of my previous position in the 4.30's. Checking in on the trade at stop signs and red lights probably helped me hold it as long as I did the second time because at any small dip down I was planning to take profits. When I arrived at my destination I got the small dip from $5 to $4.90 and locked in my gains before getting the all day job done. All said and done it was a huge day on my very small position sizing and small account. Right now I'm more focused on learning the process and rules than getting rich. I've already had 1 blow up from making stupid decisions so we're taking it slow this time to do it right!

$1,890 profit SALM Long Stock

Entry comments: CEO appointed by President Trump to a board, should run, its fast, STT breaking news alert, goal is to make 10-20%, off its highs in the 1.30s already

Exit comments: Whewwww, what a runner, now 1.60s so maybe I played too safe, but I'm just selling into nice strength

Maybe safe but extremely profitable. Another example of not being greedy

$179 profit AXIM Long Stock

Entry comments: One more dip buy, not sure if I'll hold overnight but this is right at multi-month former resistance so it should act as support, goal is to sell in the .80s or .90s

Exit comments: This one isn't bouncing so I won't push it, small gain lie before, not being aggressive on a stock up 200%, probable better morning dip buy tomorrow if it happens

$150 profit AXIM Long Stock

Entry comments: Dip bought this runner off its highs in the .90s, crazy spread of 5 cents/share so I got this on the bid, small position though as it's still up a lot, goal is to sell in the .90s or at $1/share on the bounce

Exit comments: Weak bounce, not retesting highs so I won't overstay since it's up so much on the day, just playing safe this late in the game, potential re-buy on any bigger panic
