Vacation

I will be on vacation April 1st thru April 14th. On vacation, I may have Internet access and trade - who knows but I doubt if I will post to blog.

The Good The Bad and The Ugly 3/31/2009



The good was AMZN. Broke a level and ran and I had 500 shares on and took my 25 cents. Really wanted 30 but what the hell. The Bad was BK. Another text book in at the top - out at the bottom stupid trade. The Ugly was IBOC (good Big Mouth Stock) . You may say why would a call a profitable trade ugly? because it was going to be a great trade but I f-ed up the execution.

Friday Big Mouth Stocks 3/27/2009



As I stated in the comment section a few days back, the big mouth stocks have been hard to play recently. As some as I said that, three of five where great plays and the other two using other big mouth rules I have talked about here before, could have generated good profits.

Friday Trade Review 3/27/2009

Today sucked. I spent 6 hours on the phone with my mother (not mentally there anymore), Medicare, Social Security Office, Blue cross Blue shield, a drug store and a drug company all to get to the problem of Medicare Part D problem.

I did make two trades near the open but my mind was too far off.

Thursday Big Mouth Stocks 3/26/2009


The Big Mouth Stocks do not get any better than this. Too bad I had my head up my ass during this trading time and did not play either.

Wednesday Trade Review 3/25/2009


First two charts are Big Mouth stocks. The second is MMM. I tried shorting it and got suddenly hammered. The three chart is of X. The EURO got all excited to the upside and the commodity plays followed. I got onto X quickly and then did a bonehead move by entering a market order when I was trying to place my stop. Funny City.

At least I earned back that big dollar I lost on Monday.

Tuesday Trade Review 3/24/2009

A goofy day for me. The one big heart break was my BX trade above. I picked a bottom perfectly. I am of the point regardless of the trade to add 10 cents to my stops and see what happens. The rest of the day was made up of mini-scalps. The two big mouth stocks failed to produce anything.

My whole night is messed up with the wife having problems at work and I has trying to rebook hotels for an upcoming trip because the rates have changed. Bottom line is this post is going to suck but on the other hand my trading sucked today too.

Fleetwood Mac performs Chain


I am an old fart. I go to the Fleetwood Mac concert Thursday whcih was totally assume and my whole rotine of blogging and following the markets is all messed up. I will try to catch up this weekend.

The concert was great. The wife and I had ticket about 12 rows off the left side of the stage. This video was Fleetwoods previous tour but the stage and the band members and setup were the same Thursday. It was a great evening.

Wednesday Trade Review 3/18/2009




Very frustrating to say. I pissed around too much with PRU and the insurers. The charts above show 5 of my trades. I lacked even more guts today for some reason. In the afternoon, I was trading from a different place and had a very slow connection. This just killed my ability to trade. So many opportunities and nothing to show for it. Why do I even try?

I did not trade much today. I had way too many interruptions. I did make one good trade and the chart is above. I still can't figure out why I did not put on a bigger size. There was no big mouth stocks today.

Update - I added the charts. The first two are Big Mouth Stocks. I did not try either one. The last two charts are trades I made and I amaze myself on how sometimes where I get in and out of. In other words - top ticking and bottom ticking.

Tuesday Trade Review 3/10/2009

Above is the Big Mouth Stock for the day - nothing there. I traded like a mad man today and traded poorly. I just could not stay in my trades today. My longest trade was like 3 minutes. I made 9 trades today and 8 or them if I just held for 3 minutes more on each of them, I would have done very well today. The last one I needed to hold about 15 minutes to do well.
-
I tried figuring out what was different today. The best I can come up with was a lot of stocks would go 20 cents in my favor then drop 20 cents before marching on. The trades I made, I was not use to the back and forth action on a day that made such a gain.

I need to use a egg timer.

Euro Signal Change 3/10/2009

We are getting close to a signal change in the EUR/USD if we can hold above 1.2750. Start planning your buys. Once the signal is generate my plan is to buy a small lot and add on a pullback. If we get that pull back and do not get stopped, I will add again on a break out to a new high for the move. At that point , I would have a full position on.

Monday Big Mouth Stocks 3/9/2009


Okay Okay Okay - I heard your pleas. After readings read the last post, I could hear you all - but we want some charts. Okay - here are the Big Mouth Stock charts from today with some notes written on them. Look at them, and have some milk and cookies and go to bed.

Monday Trade Review 3/9/2009

I had too many frustrations to deal with. Poring rain, cars not parked right, problems with chat room, IB changing monthly statement and other people in my life just being plain dumb. Made a trade and got out on an interruption way before I should have. Second trade while being in a hurry, I shorted instead of going long. At that point I realized, this day was not meant for me to trade. Sorry - no charts.

My moods are all over the place still. So much so I might go see a shrink of something. Something is just not right. The wife is concerned I am going to grow fangs and start barking at the moon.

I feel like I am going nuts. Since the first of the year, I have felt more blue than usual. Do not understand why. I have been having problems with my Blood Pressure since mid October. The funny thing is that is when my toilet exploded. Now my moods have turned crazy. I am either in a kick your ass, king of the world mood or my dog just died and they took back my pick up car type of depression. The moods are swinging nearly in 48 hour cycles. Really strange for me. It is really freaking my wife out too. Too often she just says I look super sad and then a couple hours later I am like a little puppy licking her all over the place.
-
I feel like am losing my mind and I have no clue. I am getting enough sleep. I am eating okay. Exercising enough. I just do not know. I do know something is wrong because most days I can't wait to trade and now I am having more days where I just do not give a flying f....about it.

I did find a new way to end a trading session early - have a power failure.

Monday Trade Review 3/2/2009


This is just so fucking depressing. At least I was keeping my head above water day trading and now that seems to be a problem. My swing trading in my IRA accounts is just plain wrong and I would be losing less money if I just burned it.
-
The two charts above are Big Mouth stocks. Made a little money on one and none on the other. Six trades in all today and minus 30 to show for it. Two of my trades I did not get completely filled and another I picked the bottom to go short out of frustration and boredom.
