Another mistake I've been making is that when the stock uptrends, I'm expecting to see that stock go back down to that low and back up. Lots of times it may not happen, the stock will pullback but then go higher. Sometimes the stock will hit the high of the day, hit it again and instead of retracting will surge forward.

I've noticed that stocks that hit a morning high (after 9:30am) pullback, consolidate and then return to that high only to go past it to reach new highs. This could be the indicator I need. Buying a perk from a back end slide is not working too well with me.

Oof. Take profits. SNCA massive drop from high of 4.09 to trade halt at 3.17.

Warrant executed immediately, caused the drop. Tried to cash in on a small bounce, caught falling knife. Down 3 more dollars.

I find that it is my lack in concentration that limits my success in the market. I get distracted and then miss out on opportunities. I buy and think I will fail. Hard to douse these feelings and distraction. Must learn to do better. Only then will I succeed in this market.

SNCA from 2.20ish, blew past morning high to hit 3. Damn, was watching for a pop like that today. Missed it several times.

SNCA back up a lot. Missed the run and the pullback. Not sure what I am doing wrong but I know my timing is way off. And I don't think I'm giving it enough time in this case. SNCA is #1 on the list with 30 million shares, the potential for upswings are greater with this much buying and selling. Hard to get into the zone, too many distractions.

Trying to work the back end, but don't know about the falling knife. Lots of morning runs, but midday slowed down. Today midday trading didn't pan out except for SNCA with a 20ish cent upswing from VWAP. Tried BLCM from VWAP but failed to hold and I bailed out with an 8 dollar loss. Need to be more aggressive in the morning. Will try morning buys too instead of mid morning backside runs.
