Sunday Monday and Tuesday Stupidity






Just some examples of trades where I had the setup I was looking for and I either sit and watch the trade go by or I put in an limit order seconds too late or I did get filled and captured less than 20% of the move because I got out too fast. A new way of beating myself up.

Tuesday Morning Thoughts 9/23/2008

I seems like for weeks - every morning I log into my computers, I would see the markets in chaos - sometimes total chaos. Today, there seems to be a great calmness to the markets. Have we entered the eye of the storm?

Friday Trade Review 9/19/2008

I had a few minutes to watch the markets but could not get my orders to be filled excepted for one and then got stopped quickly.

Thursday Trade Review 918/2008

I traded like a madman today. So fast at times, I screwed up twice very big. Both times costing me about $150. Again instead of trading like a madman I should just have sat on my hands and made money. I have never traded this many shares before in one day.

Wednesday Trade Review 9/17/2008

Yes - I did trade today. I will post my numbers when I do trade. If there is no numbers posted, I either traded and then died before I could post them or I did not trade. I am not one of those traders that only post numbers when I do good. My life is nuts right now and I do not think I will be able to trade too often. I will post swing trades when I close them out.

A real stupid - missed The Big Mouth Stock by a couple of cents - cost me $600. Had a 1000 shares position on RIO early in the day with a buy stop over highs for another 1500. Had to go to the bathroom too badly and closed position at Break even. Cost me $750. Screwed up TRA because I was too pissed at RIO. Cost me $500 and the day just went on and on.

If someone traded my ideas today with any style, they would have easily made 3k. Me - I make fucking $37 dollars.
-
But to the readers of this blog - all of know, this is how I trade. Like a fucking Moron.
