Great day with 4 winners, 1 great missed lesson, and only 1 scratch trade (trader error)

Doing well focusing on reading price action.

BIDU - Short and long both hit

OVTI - Great short but bad stop at B/E

LVS - Lesson of day ok to chase shorts

AAPL - Great short but could have sit in it longer

CF - Great reversion bounce for a quick +1 but only caught +.40

Hit daily target even with most losers today by cutting quick and letting winners run.

I'm learning that not only by cutting losers quick and letting winners run, also to ADD SIZE ON HIGHER PROBABILITY SETTINGS, such as flag/pullback to rising MA for the 1st time.

LVS - Long on breakout but took off flat as didn't go right away

CSTR - Long on breakout and took off tiny loss as didn't rip like should

AMZN - Short fail but missed the high prob long

FSLR - Long off pullback to 50MA

BIDU - Great short tell

Target hit but missed HUGE potential day

Hit daily target by taking quick small gains, but messed up on AMZN loss (Ran over +7 points today)

AMZN - Monster day but stopped for loss, stopped watching

JAH - Breakout on daily so chased intraday

LVS - Buyers stepped in for long

ARIA - Chased but worked out for quick gain

ARBA - Another breakout chase long for quick gain

Another huge day pushes me just under weekly target hit

Tough week, Monday through Wednesday were red days for me.  I'm really working on staying focused and view each trade is it's own and not bring the baggage in from the previous day.  Here are the trades today:

BIDU - Short at previous day high

SNDK - Long on break of base

PPO - Short chase that worked

AMZN - Breakout play minor

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Stayed focused and in 1 day am now positive on the week of 3 straight losing days

Was in the zone today, nailed trade after trade, was a little too fast to take profits but worked out.

NFLX - Long off opening RS

GS - Bounce snapback

BIDU - Short off previous day low rejection

LVS - Short on rollover

POT - Chase long

3rd red day in a row, but small loss. Trying with no emotion

My losing trades seemed like good trades and were managed well so no regrets. Only slightly red today but emotions of frustration where strong.  Need to check myself.

BIDU - Short on obvious roll for quick gain

AMZN - Trading the previous day range, opened inside previous range, so should have looked to short a rejection of the high

VMW - bounce off rising MA

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Can't find my rythym. Good news, losing days i'm keeping losses minimal

FSLR - Bounce play but stopped out

BIDU - Long off round bottom base and jumped the loss prematurely

LVS - Great long but was wrong, small loss

NTAP - Textbook short, eyed the long but didn't pull trigger

GS - Lesson of the day

POT - Was eyeing the bounce but scared to chase.  LEARN!

Tuff day and stupid mistakes

KMP - Long off open but mishandled

HES - Long off open strength but chased and wrong

GS - Short off rolling over but bad exit

AAPL - long off bounce

Friday, March 16, 2012

Decent day to end the week above weekly target.

Only a few trades today:

AAPL - Long off double bottom base break above 20MA

BIDU - Short off topping pattern

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Crappy day, wasn't feeling it and ended day slightly red

F - For breakout but didn't like price action

ECYT - For breakout play but this too rolled over, small loss

LVS - Short on reversion but wrong

SINA - Short losing 20MA

NFLX - Was watching all morning seeing setup after setup but wasn't able to execute till it was too late.
