Is a virtue I did not possess today!

BC BBBY @ 36.08 9:42

An off day today - had to take my son to the doctor to cast a broken arm!! I wasn't in the mood to watch this one drift further and further from my limit.....however, had I waited until the end of the day, I would have been hit 35.85 around the close of the day, so in terms of the strategy - we're still good......Oh well - still came out ahead this week, so I'm happy!

Gutt Shabbos All!


PS - No opening trades today - didn't get home in time! I would have traded the following:

Buy AZZ @ 33.66
SS AHM @ 18.35

Wednesday's Trading Assistant!

Today I was lucky enough to have some help - the most intellegent (not to mention the cutest!) trading partner I've ever had!!! His opinion on recent market volitility: DOODY BALLS!!!!
Thanks, Shue!!!

BC LEN @ 37.33 (premarket)
LEN @ 36.97 (open)

At market close:

Bot APOG @ 28.18 3:58
I could have gotten a better price since it closed at 28.10 - oh well - we'll see what happens!

Can someone tell me how to put a side bar
<------------ over there? Thanks!!!

Back In...

Ok - so I'm implementing my new pattern today, which basically involves an opening trade at the close, and a closing trade the next day. Here's today's:

3:59 SS LEN @ 37.57

Stay tuned for the closing trade!

There is a method for this madness and I will post it on the sidebar soon!

Loosing the Battle...

Winning the WAR?????

Ok - so I've been gone for the week - Why, you ask - because I suck, and hate to admit it, but in my never-ending quest to become a better human being, I'm gonna admit it now......I SUCK!!!! (Thank G-d there are like, 4 people that read this thing, and I'm pretty sure they already know it!)

Anyway - so last week was a bad week, I lost 70 cents on some piece of crap, I don't remember what and I don't feel like going into my account and looking....mostly because when you log in, there is this chart that screams "YOU ARE A BIG FAT LOSER AND HAVE NO BUSINESS TRADING! GO GET A REAL JOB!!!" Whatever - so suffice it to say, I lost some cash last week, got discouraged, and decided to throw in the proverbial towel. Then I thought better of it - what the hell - I might as well run the rest of my life savings into the I'M BACK MO FO! Ha!

I'm working now on an interesting a good pop at the open...I went back and researched it for a few months and it looks fairly consistant, so I'm gonna go with it for now, starting Monday...

Until Next Week (I Promise!!) Gutt Shabbos Everyone...

I am doll eyes
Doll mouth, doll legs
I am doll arms, big veins, dog bait
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, they really do
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, but I do too
I want to be the girl with the most cake
I love him so much it just turns to hate
I fake it so real, I am beyond fake
And someday, you will ache like I ache
Someday, you will ache like I ache

I am doll parts
Bad skin, doll heart
It stands for knife
For the rest of my life
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, they really do
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, but I do, too
I want to be the girl with the most cake
He only loves those things because he loves to see them break
I fake it so real, I am beyond fake
And someday, you will ache like I ache
Someday you will ache like I ache

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda...

So I was awakened at 7:00 by my son's father informing me that they were in an accident on the way to my house....Thank G-d everyone was fine, but it threw my whole morning off!

Anyway - by the time I got home from picking up my son, it was after 9:45, which is after I like to start trading. I woulda traded CMED (good earnings this morning) but I didn't! I felt off due to the morning's events....til tomorrow!


Oh - as of right now....still long LWSN

A Good Week...

First, I wanted to thank everyone for their support! All of your kind words have meant a lot to me as I muddle my way through this new venture!

Today's executions:

Sld LWSN@ 10.25 @ open (yes, I got greedy since I should have gotten rid of all of it @ 10 1/4 but I didn't...shoot me!)

Bot EXPE @ 26.11 9:35
Sld EXPE @ 26.22 9:36

Today was Zev's first day of summer vacation so it was a bit hectic around here in the morning....a birthday party, making shabbos, etc... so I didn't have time to focus on more than one! But hey - I'm still holding on to a lot of LWSN!

Have a Gutt Shabbos ya'll!

Bad Habits Die Hard

Or not at all....
The damage for today...well - its only paper damage...I'm still hanging on. I'm comfortable doing so, it seems some analysts are upgrading on the news, plus its too close to my buy price to get out now!

I'm in LWSN at 10.09 and 10.17
It closed @ 10.00

Til tomorrow........

Well - Doesn't It Fucking Figure?????

So I'm all nervous/excited for the day...waiting for the bell..ding ding ding..and I'm already on my site where I find what I'm trading for the day and here's what I see:

CITIZENS A 192.76 170.47 (764.78%)
GNSS GENESIS MICROCHIP 8.05 6.83 (559.84%)
FFIV F5 NETWORKS INC 80.92 58.63 (263.03%)
AVTR AVATAR HLDGS INC 79.28 56.99 (255.68%)
IDXX IDEXX LABS 86.72 61.17 (239.41%)
etc etc...........
And I'm like WTF???? Things up $170 or $80.00??? So obviously the site was having issues reporting information...that should have been a sign! But no, no excuses!! I find something that looks interesting.... LWSN..expected to report better than expected earnings next month...up like 99 cents...fine great, I'm in..

Buy LWSN @ 10.17 @9:35
Buy LWSN @ 10.09 @9.37

Guess what? Its 10:33.........the market is going up, and I'm still waiting....

We are all very proud of you!

Countdown to the Real Thing!

So I've been paper trading for quite a while, refining my strategy, etc, as well as occasionally jumping in for real...but the time has come for me to grow some balls! I made my last deposit yesterday and will be ready to play tomorrow! Withdrawals from now on!! (I hope!)

My strategy is fairly simple - Buy on an upswing and high volume as early as possible! Fairly simple and has been working well on paper, though I concede that paper is totally different than the real thing, although I have been fairly honest with myself, especially the past few months. Daytrading, even on paper, has been quite a humbling experience....just when I think I have to be the best daytrader on the face of the earth, the trading gods knock me down, and rightfully so! But this is what I love to do, so I have to give it a shot!

From what I can tell, my weakness is getting out of a trade that isn't going my way....I always want to wait one more minute, hell, even the whole day, and just in case, overnight, even though I know that's cardinal rule #1 of what NOT to do! I will try to fix this! Though I think I'm fairly good at spoting a good buy for my purposes, and getting in and out.

Anyway, if there is ever anyone who actually reads this blog, feel free to comment, suggest, ask questions, or call me a dumbass when its warranted - and I'm sure it will be many times! But mostly....wish me luck!!!
