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)

Took several trades on Friday, most were chasing and it paid off

My reversion methods are really hot and cold so trying a few different methods that seem to be working particularly well on trending days, i'm just trying to figure out before the day's end if it's a trending day!

SPRD - Great rocket ship ride on break of previous days consol...that i chased a little.

SNDK - Tight pullbacks indicate trend day, chased a little

REDF - Quick Chase as looking for quick small gain

HANS - Textbook flag intraday

Only took 2 trades, 1 great one, and one really bad one that had no edge

AMZN - Long was terrible trade as there was no edge/advantage.  No reason to get long

GS - Short was textbook, i just keep taking off early thinking it'll turn into a loser.

Good day but still not letting winners run to Target 2 and it's costing me profits

Here's where i struggle.  Trade 1 i took off prematurely not letting target 2 become realized and left quite a bit on the table.  While trade 3 i took off early for profit and stayed green, otherwise i would have taken a loss.  HOW DO I DISTINGUISH BETWEEN TAKING PROFITS EARLY AND LETTING WINNERS RUN?

Here are the trades:

POT - Short, Target 1 realized, target 2 hit but didn't get

ROVI - Long but too early

FSLR - Long

3 for 3 and ended early for +242% of daily target realized

What a great fast day. Here are the trades:

GMCR - 10 gallon HT to @gtotoy.  Great eye on this perfect setup, strong out the gate on a gapdown day.

FSLR - Great rip and topping formation, shorted looking for +1

BIDU - Nice quick bounce

2 for 2 today

Only took 2 trades, both great winners that hit target.  Unfortunately i'm trading with "scared" money and keep jacking myself psychologically.

GS - Long but skiddish and big mistake on small gain

FSLR - Great entry but BS exit due to FEAR!!! 

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Great quick setups today.

OIH - Fast fade the gap

SPRD - Strong stock

CIEN - URGH. Boner mistake

FSLR - Textbook short, left lots on table

FFIV - Textbook long

AKAM - bought support test at major MA
