Im an idiot for a couple reasons. 1) NEVER chase a stock against your gurus advice 2) if you have an opportunity to cut losses at your mental stop, FUCKING CUT THEM! This thing sat at 5.55 (my original mental stop) MORE than long enough for me to sell. But I didn't. I kept hoping it would climb back up. "Hope is not a strategy" 3) DONT use market orders. EVER! thought I sold at 5.10, i actually sold at 4.95

Not much news except a 'favorable' outlook on some regulatory approval. Caused a big spike in pre-market with a fade into regular trading. Still up on the day so I bought hoping for a midmorning spike. Got a little bit and got out. Taking singles

Really buggered this one up. Meant to buy 500 shares, fat fingered an order for 1k and got em. panicked and saw it tick up a couple cents so I got out and took my ~40 profit. I really wish I had executed the trade properly, I would have stayed in much longer and could have seen it run to 10.60... like it did.

Started to notice a channel happening between about 3.65 and 3.75, so I waited until the bottom of the channel and bought. Sold at the top.

Tried the channel method a second time, and the bottom of the channel didn't hold, had to get out at 3.62. Could have stayed in and recovered a few cents/share, but I cut losses quickly. Not doing so has been the bane of my existence so far, so Im happy.

It id it one more time. I didn't catch it quite as low as last time and I sold a little lower as well. It seemed to struggle to crack 5.80 this time, so I caught it on the way down at 5.76. Looks like I could have held in there for some fluctuation and caught 5.78, MAYYYBE 5.79, but Ill take it.

It did it again. I caught it at a lucky dip @ 5.66 and got out almost at the next local peak @ 5.80. Could have possibly gotten 5.82 but took the "meat of the move" that being said, I know Im using that term somewhat disingenuously because this is not a move, it is scalping. Im not proud of it, however I am proud that this trade did exactly what I intended it to do, and I played it thusly.

This has been bouncing between 5.70 and 5.80 most of the morning. Watched it bounce a few times while holding and finally decided to get out once it went above 5.80 the next time. Sold now waiting for it to get down to low 5.70s again for potential rebuy

No news, but was up for the day. Held SOME of the gains, but fell largely from morning spike. Slowly faded and finally hit my mental stop. Cut losses well... more quickly than I usually do.
