Lots of good nuggs of wisdom here. I'm almost 2 months into the challenge now and glad to come across a post like this. It's refreshing to see some long bias, everywhere I turn it seems that people want to drop the hammer on stocks-ha! I can see where you are coming from with understanding the mindset of a short seller to help with long setups--Spikeability and Short Stocking have given me some perspective on this, as well as SEC filings and the book the art of short selling by kathryn staley se

This was a nice confirmation for me. I wasn't watching chat, but traded this. In at 2.06, out at 2.05 when it wasn't going anywhere. Only been in the Challenge and trading for two months. But this tells me I was on the right track. Thanks!

btw. I've felt I've struggled with entries because I mostly focused on the chart. Are you using Level 2 and tape acceleration on your entries?

@JohnTrader a little bit on lvl 2 but mostly just volume based chart support and resistance. Thanks for the kind words.

Great video Huddie. So much in here, I watched it like 3 times tonight. I liked the intro where you touched on your beginning, the struggle etc. thanks for that. It was cool seeing you go over CVSI when it was practically a sub penny stock. Thanks for touching on your loss. That helps man. Too much to speak on in one comment. Thanks bro.

Jack, this lesson brought back some of the most painful memories I ever experienced trading stocks. I've been caught like that as well, but I just ended up becoming a bag holder for about 6 months. I was long the stock and it moved against me but I was full of "HOPE" that it would come back and I would get my money back. Well it never did come back and ended up going all the way down to the .oo5's then .004's and so on and so on. The thing is that I got into it at the .20's and it ran all the wa

@RichieRichW what a story... sorry to hear man. It really all comes down to cut losses quickly! Add to winners, NEVER losers, and never hold and hope.

Jackaroo I took a major lesson from this video. Thank you for sharing, this probably made you a 10x better trader then you were before, and to man up and recap it and make a video of it for others to learn from is class act!!!!! You already knew what to do and now I bet you will never forget it. Probably one of your greatest learning lessons that sharpened your skills even better for the future. Thanks again man!!!!

yes but it is important to know how many trades to guage the activity of the volume...i think

Patrickxfit
Patrickxfit May 01, 18 5:46 PM

The level 2 box shows how big each sale and buy is which gives you an idea of number of trades.

Great Video! It is great to see your thinking process. I'm just curious if you switch to other time frames to smooth out the curve and remove some noise to avoid shake out or if you only use 1 minute. Clearly you don't have to worry about PDT rules like I do. I'm constantly rethinking trades because I can't exceed the 3 trades in 5 days. It sucks and has cost me a lot of money
