Only 1 for 3 but let the winner run big, and cut losers quickly for great day

BIDU - Huge short and nailed it

FFIV - Long but no bounce, didn't reverse trade

AMZN - Long and fail...and again didn't reverse trade

WORK ON LETTING WINNERS WORK!

I notice that losers are losers, but the necessity to let winners run is what over the long haul takes my account up.  Here are 2 examples today:

NFLX - Took a small loss on short but missed the LONG





BIDU - Chased long

..And then a 4 for 4 day!

This is where i struggle is consistency.  Kick ass day today!

GS - Great long

MELI - Great long off role reversal

DMND - Great buy strength lesson, got lucky on reversion short

NFLX - Perfect Pullback buy

I can't figure this crap out!

I'm doing something terribly wrong and can't learn for the life of me!!

NFLX - Short and wrong

FSLR - Short of the day...and still messed it up

OK day, still workin on correcting mistakes

The setups:

IMAX - Great long off daily setup

GS - Chased the long for +1, and nailed the short

NFLX - Shorts killed

Great lessons today but had to pay to learn them. 43% win rate and missmanaged trade.

I just knew GS would roll, but entered to early and snowballed too big and ended up taking off for loss on day due to poor risk management.  Here are the trades:

CAT - Long and wrong

NFLX - Shorted weakness in a gap up market, barely got a profit though

RL - Short but didn't follow through

GS - read the short but was too early and bailed gameplan

3 for 4, and BIG winners, just didn't let realize. SAME MISTAKE OVER AND OVER

The trades:

PANL - Great long off strength

POT - Took long at open and then short, great double dipper

RIMM - Shorted the chatter but a tad too early

Great day, only 1 loser but liked the odds

The trades...and the lessons that ensue through reflection:

TIBX - Short reversion but wrong

POT - Long of previous day's low

VMW - Didn't want to chase it so missed it but great lesson:

ATI - Quick breakout trade

AMZN - Amazing reversion trade (but missed the big trade long off open)
