Hit Max pain and had to walk away. Feel like an idiot not making money in this market.

In review i couldn't make up my mind as shorted NFLX 2 times and then longed it 2 times.

NFLX - Short at open for small quick gain

BIDU - Daily flag BO but was a fake out

NFLX - Looked to be rolling so short again and wrong

NFLX - Turned bullish, looked great so long

NFLX - The great setup that i didn't take worked out big time

AAPL - Lesson of day on what to look for to get long on a gap up pullback

My morning bias is starting to affect my trading. Need to work on no bias, just pure setups

NFLX - Felt was extended but still broke above previous day high

CYBX - Big selloff on daily with climactic volume and mini consol

NFLX - Made lower high and looked like top was in but didn't stick to trade plan

LNKD - Great move with a controlled pullback

Getting better but still not yet living up to my potential

Some great moves, some i got, most i missed

NFLX - Break above previous days high, didn't take the trade!

PVH - Great daily pattern and moved big today

NFLX - Textbook high and tight flag at highs on low volume to let rising 20MA catch up

CRM - Breakout above previous day high, great long

INVN - Looking for follow thru day but didn't get it

Started out great from alerts but then got manic and gave over 50% back

First 2 trades were money entries but had no stop or targets pre-planned.  TERRIBLE WAY TO TRADE.  I got super manic after the first two trades and jumped in and out of too many setups.

CRM - Break above previous day consol.  Great entry, terrible exit

NFLX - Huge gap up and hold.  Decent entry, terrible exit.

NTRI - Flat top BO on daily and looked ready but fizzled out

QIHU - Daily Flag B/O and intraday great pattern

NFLX - Short off role and sellers coming in

GMCR - Trade of the day

SWFT - Lesson of day on gap ups

POT - 42 Resistance looked like great short but stopped out

BIDU - Tight pennant intraday and flag on daily

AAPL - Lesson on buying gapfill pullbacks

NFLX - Great setup, great entry, boner stop of the day

LNKD - Daily Flag BO failed

CF - Daily Flag BO that looked like fail but was shakeout

NTES - Daily Flag BO that failed

RIMM - Gap up sitting at lows and looked like was going to lose 17

KEG - Asc Tri on Daily BO but shook me out
